...of a truly beautiful pen. I have been collecting fountain pens since 1994 or so. In recent years, most of my acquisitions have been Montblancs. Here is the latest — the 2019 Le Petit Prince (on Easter Morning). ...  

Nice ;) [nt]

Very nice pen! My latest Montblanc was the Borghese piece.

Fantastic Review.....

Big Congrats on the Great Faber Castell Samurai, what a wonderful pen. In my past life I used to collect fountain pens. As pieces of Art they do give a lot of satisfaction. S

Its very true :-)

Purists have common interests S

You may find it hard to believe...

You may find it difficult to believe, I actually don't own a Pelikan pen. I mostly own Montblanc pens. I hear Pelikans have a wetter nib than Montblancs. Definitely ought to try them sometime. I'm definitely a big fan of the Pelikan designs.

I don't think its hard to believe at all :D my second fountain pen was a Montblanc and had it not skipped I think I would have been in trouble and added more.

Now it has settled down (Montblanc Le Petit Prince Classique) and is fine (I suspect it had baby's bottom) the writing is comparable, I have the Montblanc with a medium nib and Pelikan (M800 Renaissance Brown) on Extra Fine Nib. The Pelikan writes smoothe... 

Superb, Patrick. This fountain pen is superb. Congratulations. I hesitated to open your thread because pens are a dangerous attraction on me. ;)

I will see it in the metal as I have a very nice pens shop close to where I live.... Enjoy yours, mon ami. And thanks for this superb post... Damn, I opened it. Nicolas

You see what you did? Here are some I am thinking about...

 
 By: amanico : May 12th, 2019-23:13
Aaah, not the last one... I already have it. Best, Nicolas ...  

I'm really enjoying my Montblanc Borghese pen...

Thanks for sharing Patrick

Pens are dangerous. I know it's another slippery slope. But what you've shared is really tempting me

Thank you for reading!

 
 By: patrick_y : May 13th, 2019-14:57
It is indeed a slippery slope. I recently was wandering around in Los Angeles and stumbled into a nice art gallery. Those can be very slippery slopes as well. Lots of slippery slopes. Especially on this website! Besides pens and watches, what else capture... 

That's a great question Patrick

I think thanks to the great influence here, I'm also starting to expand my interest into the finer things in life like art and jazz. Recently I'm also picking up on classical music. Very much lack the rigor in these side tracks, I really must find a place... 

Good luck to your pursuits!

Art, jazz, classical music... All very noble and fun pursuits. Ever see yourself owning a famous violin made by Strad in Cremona? Ever see yourself collecting concert pianos? Collecting original scores of music hand-written by a famous artist over a centu...
