    Yes! Just saw a photo of that one. Might be the one I get, instead of the Supernova or Blue Dwarf.

    Iím waiting on a Platinum 3776 with a medium nib, the Nice Lavende model. I bought the pink one, Nice Lilas, in a broad nib a few weeks ago...found the nib a little too broad. So I got a fine nib ďBourgogneĒ off Amazon, and itís very nice, though ultra fine. I figured the medium will be just right. Though surprisingly, the broad nib has really grown on me...

    I kind of donít like the idea of having 3 of the same pens, not when there are so many choices out there but I really like the 3776. Itís the perfect size for my hand and very comfy to write with.

    Faber-Castell e-Motion in black with a broad nib.

    I took advantage of/was suckered into buying more ink @ cultpens and decided I needed (wanted) another pen as well.

    Only 3 of the same pen? Not to worry. There are people who are far worse than that ómyself for example. I donít even know how many i have of certain pens.

    Not to mention those who prefer to collect multiples of the same pen...

    Seriously, every one is different, and after a while you can even tell them apart, like a mother with identical triplets. Having them in different colours is almost cheating!

    I'm waiting on a few.

    One bought on here that after ten days with USPS is still "In Transit to Next Facility", which I suspect means it hasn't even left Texas yet. I'm not holding my breath for arrival any time soon.

    I have the world's silliest pen - a Benu in ridiculously girlie pink with sparkles - due to arrive with me at the end of the week (the seller wasn't allowed to ship it until a fixed date).

    The new Pelikan M205 Petrol is on preorder, who knows when that will appear.

    And I may have one or two (ahem) little old vintage pens on their way, a NOS Sheaffer 777 (I blame Jon for guilting me into becoming 'mildly' interested in them), a red Parker 21 - more out of nostalgia for a long ago broken one than anything and a little green Merlina to make my Merlin look butch - he's been sulking since another little blue Dutch pen arrived a while ago and needs his ego stroked a bit.

    That would be Jon Anderson, lead singer for the band Yes. I have no idea, personally, what mizgeorge is talking about otherwise.

    I never knew he was into pens? What an amazing coincidence.

    I have a Santini Libra in the honey ebonite on the way. I got a shipping notice today, but i don't think it's been shipped yet. I'm mostly a vintage guy, but Santini seems to do most things the way i'd prefer. For instance, they make their own nibs, use ebonite feeds, & don't put section trim rings on their pens.

    I want one of those silly Benu pens too, maybe the ultra sparkly Vodka on the Rocks. Sparkly is good!

    Likely as the amount of pens I have grows, Iíll have more multiples, especially as I discover certain brands that I might favor, but as of now I have only 15 pens - or is it 16? I feel I should be trying more different kinds at this point.

    That sounds some good stuff!! I love those pens but Sailor has a very different way of publicity for their pens.
    I ended up getting 6pens including 4 Pro-gear slim. I am hunting a Pro gear (Standard normal one as Mont Blanc 146 size) similar to Imperial.
    Even I don't know how to indicate this model as the sailor pens categories are very confusing.
    Great pens but my only disappointment is the Music nib . It is completely useless nib for me. But I am sure B nib is very special.
    I recently found that I could use the Music nib up-side down for fine lines. So I changed my mind not grind that nib into italic .
