    Rite in the Rain

    I've been carrying around my trusty Rite in the Rain - Black in (the only color authorized in official Marine Corps correspondence). It writes in any angle and doesn't skip. Not y'er expensive pen, but it works for me here in Iraq. I was carrying around a Space Pen, but lost it in the gym one day - it's just too small to maintain.

    I had been carrying a Mont Blanc 146 with platinum trim for years. Lately I had it filled with Noodlers La Coleuer.

    I recently got two new pens - a Parker 100 filled with Noodlers Eternal Hunter Green & a Lamy 2000 filled with Noodlers Polar Black.

    Today I carried the Lamy 2000

    I love pens in general, but enjoy a good fountain pen. As part of my love for vintage things I have purchased a Parker 51, Sheaffer Snorkel, and an Esterbrook J Series. They are all great pens, but the 51 definitely gets the most use. I recently bought a Parker Parkette on ebay that I can't wait for it to arrive.

    haven't been writing enough

    still carrying the Namiki Bamboo, that Japanese Fine nib is quite stingy with the ink. When you combine the fine nib with the large converter, the pen writes forever before going dry.

    Pilot 78G with medium stub (labled Broad) nib. This pen gives my chicken-scratch some character. It is light and a joy to use.

    Miss N, if you think that's worth a chuckle, you should hear the really long pause on the other end of the phone when some one gets my work number by mistake...."Sex Offender Supervision Unit, can I help you?"

    NOS Parker 21

    Just got a NOS Parker 21 Super in dark green. Looks to be uninked, flushed and filled with Parker Quink [what else?] and it started right up, smooooooothed out in about 2 minutes and is ready to roll! Pics later, I promise......

    I picked up a gold and black Waterman Hemisphere (my first fountain / non-disposable pen) in Cambridge in May. I've used no pencil and no other pen since that day. I dropped it once, it has a small scuff from that (which irks me beyond belief), but beyond that works excellently.

    Carry him everywhere, everyday. Sisyphe by name!
