I have their CYS Grey ballpoint (which I wish I could use any other refill with) and it feels great in the hand and looks stunning. I wish I could have their more atypical color schemes for a fountain pen drop. Something like the CYS, Girard, and Nespresso lines.
Have the blue in EF. Not a favorite, the cap posts strange and spins around when either capped or posted. Not very secure either position as well. Nice nib though but about a dozen pens I can name at the price point more worth the cash.
I have a yellow F, I love it. I've been wondering why these aren't more popular? Where's the best place to buy them from? (I got mine as a gift)

You'd have to shop around. Their price mostly hovers around the $50 mark. That's also why they haven't gained in popularity; not much to differentiate them from other pens at the same price point. The lowest prices I've seen recently are on Amazon.
I have a white one in EF. It's a pretty nice pen but it may feel cheaper than it is because of how light it is and the finish.
Available in the US now... and selling out :(
Beautiful. I think I'm on either the white or green.
I'm diggin that orange

It would go nicely with a black Rhodia Webbie.
