    Default Which is the odd one out?

    I was looking over my pens, and one really sticks out (to me). Which one seems out of place to you?

    The Lamy 2000 is a bit of an odd man out there.

    It could be. But is less so than one of the others. In my view anyway.

    What makes you pick the L2K out of the lineup?

    Is the Targa the odd one out, because it's too cylindrical?

    It is the odd one out; but not for that reason.

    The Targa is a mid-1970s design, everything else is at most mid-1960s. It was released when the fountain pen was decidedly not the main writing instrument any longer. Is that why?

    Bingo! I wasn't sure other people would see it, but when I look at those pens, the Targa leaps out as the "modern" one.
