That's nice, what pen is that? It looks super familiar, and I have a positive notion of it somewhere in my mind, but I just can't put my finger on it.
My Pelikan M200 is an absolute workhorse. My only "good" pen, really.
Pilot Custom 74 (Fine nib) courtesy of my buddy @Quiet , passed it on to me at a great price. Hands down the best writing pen I have, never a hard start and very smooth for a Fine.
Thaaaat's what it is, graaaah, right on the tip of my tongue! A very respectable choice. I considered getting one of those years ago, and am now considering it again lol. A Japanese Fine nib is so different from the German Fine on my Pelikan.
EDIT: Scratch that consideration, I just remembered it's a cartridge converter pen. I write so much that I definitely need the piston filler.
@Quiet will have to chime in with specifics because I'm actually a noob, but the converter in mine is piston style and HUGE
I would recommend an Opus 88 or maybe a TWSBI pen, as both have large ink wells. I uh...know a thing or two about fountain pens. Most TWSBI nibs will be aaaahlmost as smooth writing as your Pelikan's nib.
I write a lot myself, and my daily writer for the last several months as been a Visconti Homo Sapiens (Bronze Age). A phenomenal pen, and one of the new gold nibs*. I used to write more often with my MB149, but it developed a leak at the piston filler knob and I need to send it in.
Edited to add: I suggested the Opus and TWSBI because they are fairly low cost. I never feel right suggesting some of my favorite pens because they tend to be expensive. LOL
* The old palladium nibs, you had a 70% chance of the one you received being traaaash.
The CON70 converter on that particular pen is Pilot's biggest one, and does indeed hold a pretty impressive (for a converter!) amount of ink. There are obviously pens that hold more ink, but the Pilot C74 is a compact pen that writes beautifully, comfortably, and it's light. Lot of boxes that pen checks, honestly.
A Homo Sapiens would be soooo nice (and much respect. @WValtakis FYI it's like the Sebenza of the pen world), but I wouldn't be comfortable leaving that in my office like I leave my work writer. TWSBI's are definitely good, but my Pelikan does everything I want it to, with the caveat that the Fine nib is a little on the broad side for my small writing. But it writes inverted well enough, so that's my work around if I really need precision. I especially like the fact that it has a steel nib that looks and feels like a gold nib (except a little slimmer if you look closely).
Fixn to load gas and diesel in Memphis and head south to Vicksburg
we doubled up barges to head south (easier to steer, not as easy to stop) helena ark. bridge
That is a wonderful piece.
