    Here's an image for @RobJohnson

    And a reminder that this thread is for photos of pens. It's not a popularity contest.



    Hint for @RobJohnson - it's experimental.

    Last 3 images are for those with an unbiased approach to art.
    All true art is biased. If not, it's a commercial image.

    M: I came here for a good argument.
    A: No you didn't; no, you came here for an argument.
    M: An argument isn't just contradiction.
    A: It can be.
    M: No it can't. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.
    A: No it isn't.
    M: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.
    A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
    M: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'
    A: Yes it is!
    M: No it isn't!

    Here's a great article about technicality vs creativity - READ HERE

    For me Person B is where I lean toward, but have no doubt that this is not a simple this or that explanation.

In hindsight, I should have been happy with the squeeze converters because I liked everything else about it, with its inlaid 14k stub nib and solid sterling cap and barrel.

    I see! I thought this was my gold Sheaffer from when I temporarily gave you possession of my small collection. I was gonna say, if that's the pen that got away, you could have it back

    The only pen I regret having sold is this one:

    Rheingold von -c_m_z-

    It's a Soennecken Rheingold of the very first generation of Rheingolds. The jade color wasn't perfect and I thought that I will find a better one.

    Well, 15 years later, I still didn't...

    As I recall it was more of a stub than an italic. All Mabie Todd pens of course.

    Awesome! It's actually one of those directionless threads where a member can jump in randomly and find something of interest.
