Great use of a cigar box!My collection, from left to right
Jinhao 992, commonly referred to as a "homage" to Sailor Procolor pens. The nib/ink flow is nice but the body is cheap plastic.
Monteverde Prima--a nice pen and the converter screws in which is a nice touch.
Levenger True-Writer--the rose gold clip and bands got to me. The ivory colored plastic provided a nice background for the rose gold.
Sailor 1911 Promenade--a spectacular pen. Comfortable, starts without issue even if not used for a few weeks and the ink flows nicely.
Sheaffer No Nonsense--the brand/model I used in elementary school. The model was introduced in 1969.
Cross Solo Radiance--a nice pen. Picked up for a song. The pen is much better than most Cross pens.
Unknown "Porcelin" pen. Got it cheap and was attracted to it because it was unusual. New it cost a couple of dollars and it has brass tubes covered with "porcelin"
Sailor Procolor 4 Seasons Stardust. It is a Sailor and has sparkles. A nice back up to the 1911
The case: The local cigar/smoke shop sells the empty boxes for $1. This one came with the tray.
I wonder if posting a "homage" pen will stir up the members and an ensuring war about "homages" will occur.

I own one and find it great, post up upon arrival!I'm waiting for the arrival of this visconti pen. Not familiar with the brand but from what I read they seem to make a good pen on the entry level luxury side. This was a good price on joma so picked it up..

You find it too great or something else? Trying to read into your mistype there.I own one and find it to great, post up upon arrival!
Ah, no clue how "to" snuck in there. Phone typo. I find it great, use it regularly at the officeYou find it too great or something else? Trying to read into your mistype there.

Also getting this montegrappa ballpoint pen. Looks nice. The website is shopworn, never heard of it before, hope it's a good site. They have good prices on montegrappa pens.
I have a white Rembrandt fp. You are going to enjoy it. That picture does not do it justiceHaven't received any of my pens yet but I've been on a pen purchase spree high. Ugh.
Bought this one. Visconti Rembrandt. Looks cool. Ballpoint of course but was cheap at $49 new. Anyone have a Rembrandt?
