    Default My collection

    I'm a new member and don't really know the protocol, but I thought I would post photographs of my current collection, for reaction and advice.

    These are the "keepers" in my pen box: (l-to -r) They all have "Fine" nibs, though three of the four Pelikans have "Extra Fine".

    a. Namiki vanishing point, which I bought about 35 years ago; Pilot Fermo in black; Pilot Fermo in blue

    b. Waterman L'Etalon, which I bought about 30 years ago; Waterman L'Opera (this one, I think, I bought about 35 years ago); Pelikan M800 "Ocean Swirl"; Pelikan M805 Stresemann Anthracite; Pelikan M800 "Burnt Orange"; Pelikan M800 "Grand Place"; Platinum Izumo Urushi; Nakaya Neo-standard; Nakaya Portable Writer

    c. Sailor Pro Gear, limited edition, "Earth"; Sailor Pro Gear Classic Imperial Black; Platinum President in yellow; Platinum President in blue; Sailor Sapporo "Mini"; Sailor 1911 Full Size "Stormy Sea"; Sailor 1911 Full Size "Anchor Gray"; Sailor 1911 Full Size "Black Silver"; Sailor 1911 Full Size "Burgundy Gold"


    These four I will probably "deaccession" -- I hope as a group to someone who prefers the size:

    Sailor Pro Gear Limited edition "Sky"; Pro Gear Classic Yellow; Pro Gear Classic Ivory; Pro Gear Classic Orangefountain pen 4.jpgFountain pen 1.jpgfountain pen 2.jpgfountain pen 3.jpg

    Wow, those Sailors look very smart. But I'm *really* jealous of the Pelikans. What a gorgeous selection.

    It is a good collection of modern pens. There are ones I like and some I don't. Congratulations and is great taste of writing and best tools.
