Those are very good looking pens. I like fountain pens and have a collection of Mont Blanc; one of those would fit right in. Is there a choice of nibs? How does one fill the ink reservoir?

Roller Balls for me. Nothing like the flow of one's
signature with a smooth roller.

Nice looking pens.

I have a gold nib Schaeffer that would have given your rollerball a run for its money, until I dropped it.

I have a thing for fountain pens. We learned to write with them when I was a kid in Russia. The old fashioned kind: just a laquered stick with a nib, an inkwell, and a blotter. Ball points were a big deal, and fountain pens with a reservoir were really special. Penmanship counted, and I still remember notebooks filled with just perfect little parts of letters. We didn't get to actually write anything until the second semester of first grade!

Looks good!... I also turn pens, got some in jewelry stores... Capt Will, the fountains are typically the cartridge type, can't remember if the nibs are replaceable (I used to always use fountains in school too... not easy for a lefty!)

I am fortunate to have acquired several very nice ones from my Grandfather, as I share his name and he had the good grace to have his name inscribed on several of his pens. So when my Father, Aunts, Cousins, etc. had picked over things, there were these great pens and a lifetime supply of stationery with (our) name on it that nobody claimed. There are Schaeffers, Parkers, lever and pushbutton loaders, bottles of scrip in several colors, etc. Several gold nibs, couple acetate and casein bodies, cool stuff. I also got his roll top desk, which nobody wanted, and it broke my heart to have to leave it at my ex's because I dont physically have room in our family's new 2BR apt, but my ex graciously agreed to keep it until I come claim it.

For modern pens, I like the Colibris and Watermans (the pre-1990 ones) because they have a good "snap", my EDC pen is a cheap MB.

One of the coolest ink colors I've ever seen is a black/blue. So blue that it's even blacker than black. (About 60 or 70 pounds ago, I even had a tuxedo in that color).
