Nice.  :like:

Do the flats on the lid line up with those on the body when it’s closed?

I need recommendations for my second fountain pen!  :D :pok:

Two requirements:
Under 30 Euros(still figuring out what I like) and needs to have an extra fine nib available(or fine, if the manufacturer is Japanese, like Pilot).
Short length is nice by the way.  :drool:

Heres what I looked at:

Kaweco Liliput with EF nib: Love the size, but too expensive for now.

Kaweco Classic Sport with EF nib: Seems like a good choice, but on the fence about the cap shape.

Pilot Metropolitan with Fine nib: Makes the thinnest line of anything I looked at.  :o
Brass body is cool, nevermind the lack of shortness.

Pilot 78g: Same nibs as metropolitan, and effectively a cheaper plastic metropolitan, so don't see the point of it.  :shrug:

Parker Jotter: Does not seem to have an EF nib option.

So thats about it. Can you help me choose from the list, and/or suggest other pens?  :pok: 
:popcorn:

Look at Rotring Art Pen collection. You can get several nibs for the pen.

I usually carry a Staedtler Mars Micro mechanical pencil in my pocket. I find it to be more practical than a pen, even though it can't be used to sign any documents, but I don't usually sign any documents anyway, so.

I like french fries.

Thanks for the pointer. :tu:

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

I've been using a Uni Kuru Toga mechanical pencil for the last few months - this has a mechanism that rotates the lead every time you lift off the paper to stop the point from turning into a chisel tip.  I don't like the amount of axial movement in the lead though - I don't lift the tip very far from the paper and it drags as I move from letter to letter.  I've just switched back to my old Rotring Rapid Pro mechanical pencil with 0.7mm lead and it's much nicer to write with.

I write so seldom that I find it difficult writing more than the date and my signature.

I've noticed for several years that if I suddenly have to write more than the above mentioned, my hand is stupid and my writing which was always bad, gets even worse.....almost spastic  :facepalm:

This goes away after a few minutes of practice....


Not planning on writing much in the near future, but I did have to use a pen to sign in at a security checkpoint recently......using a pen I would rather not have touched. :oops:

I have a ball point knocking around in the glovebox, but I think I'm old enough to carry off the pen in the pocket look  :whistle:

I've seen some really nice Titanium numbers on the youtubes, but nothing available locally and I'm not looking to spend much.

My plan is simple: Parker Jotter like my dad and everybody else used......simple, cheap and can be used to stab an attacker in the eye if needed....  :mn:
