The above list reflects the group of pens I’ve collected to write with.

There are a couple other pens that were gifts or otherwise have a sentimental connection to a person. These pens get used, too, but mostly for letter writing, grocery lists, or this or that; not for long writing sessions.

It’s not the fountain pens themselves that are the heart of the writing experience. They are important vehicles for the nibs that matter most of all. Taking advantage of custom pens or pens that allow for interchangeable nibs, provides the hoard with more nibs than fountain pens.
