I would immediately purchase multiple Drop Studio + Yookers Metis pens if they were available *hint hint* particularly in Drop black and blue colorway...

Would love to see a MassDrop + Rotring collabo on a limited edition release Rotring 600 Fountain Pen.

I like large pens with a clean and modern design. Like the Lamy 2000 (that is at the very top of my wish list) or Faber Castell E-motion (that I just bought). I got the Triton Zero here which I like very much. I signed up for the two recent Italix pens too. Metal body is a bonus to me, I don't like demonstrators at all. My max price is around 100 dollars. I prefer a fine or medium nib, since my handwriting is horrible and even a medium is too broad for my work but works at home. Steel nib is ok. I only ever had one gold nib and I ruined it by holding the pen in a too loose grip and dropping it four inches, nib down, on the paper....

Some good Chinese pens from manufacturers like PenBBS or Live in You. PenBBS ink would be wonderful! Have heard good things about the ink, but very hard to source outside of China. Also, unusual pens, e.g. They've managed to make glass nibbed pens with with different sized nibs! Otherwise, Japanese pens with EF nibs, Sailor, Pilot, Platinum.

Well, my current favourite (namely, pens I use daily or almost daily) are: * Pelikan 205 Olivine with a medium nib * Delta Nazareth 2000 with a medium nib * Parker 51 with a medium nib * Sheaffer Targa 1001 with a fine nib and * Delta Lugdunum with a fine nib I mostly prefer medium and fine nibs, but sometimes I use broad and double broad nibs. I still hope to get my hands on a Nagahara-nibbed Sailor. In a pen I look for an easy flow over paper, including some not-so-good paper types I get at the office, mostly simple lines. I prefer lighter pens.

Got tired of using cartridge fountain pens so I bought a TWSBI Mini with a stub nib. Wonderful pen while it lasted. Kept loving demonstrator fountain pens so I got a Opus 88 Koloro Demonstrator F and M nibs - beautiful pen. I do field work so I had to get a more robust pen, I bought a Kaweco Brass Sport with a F nib - nearly indestructible.

I just got my first 2 pens since middle school. Obviously I don't know anything about fountain pens but I got Two of the rightchoicepaintingcompany pens. One is F one is extra fine. I've only got ink in the brass one with Jacques Herbin Emeraude de Chivor. I love this pen. I find myself writing gibberish because I apparently have nothing to say but want to use the pen its so nice.
Nibs are both Bock. Brass is full brass. EF Copper is also titanium with anodized blue / purple. F Both are a ball tip. If that's the right way to put it. Applying pressure doesn't add width to the lines. I do have the Calligraphy Super Starter Set that massdrop offered but I have yet to touch it.

What do I look for? Design, ink flow, nib choice, how it fits in my collection What nibs do I prefer? Fine, Flexible, Medium-fine Favorite brands and models? Pelikan M 400, Nakaya (any), Sailor 1911 Large, or King of Pens I do Not want a two for where both pens are identical. If I buy through Massdrop, I expect a significantly better price than I get from a full service retailer

I'm a big fan of Wahl-Eversharp pens. I also enjoy Aurora, Platinum, and others. I tend to prefer interesting nibs, if possible in gold. I really dislike transparent pens (demonstrators), and I prefer my pens not to be too heavy.
