My Pen Accumulation

These are the pens I’ve accumulated. I’ve linked the pen name to my review if it exists. If there’s no review yet, and I do have a “This Just In” or “Ink & Pen Notes” post about why I added the pen then I’ve linked to that.

If a pen is currently for sale I’ve linked to the sale page.

    • I started a little over ten years ago although “just after the turn of the century” sounds better. There was a break in the middle where I didn’t get to many new ones, just one or to a year. Then things picked up at the same time I started this site.

    • Hi Erin. Thanks. No, no Montblanc. I like the classic look of the 149 but not the price. I also like the Hitchcock LE but that is way beyond my price range.

      Ray

      • So cool a collection.
        If you started 10 years ago then you average 11.4 pens per year ! Way more than mine.

  1. Hi

    A great collection.

    Have you looked at Nakaya pens? The urushi finishes are amazing. I got one recently and its is the most beautiful pen I have and writes so smoothly.

    Regards

    Adrian Rees

    • Adrian, I’ve only seen one Nakaya in person and it was a gorgeous as the pictures, more so actually. They’re definitely on my radar but at their price I want to see the finish and try the pen model before I buy. Plus, I’m paralyzed by the choices 🙂 I am jealous of your Nakaya. Congratulations.

      Ray

  2. Thanks Ray.

    I know what you mean about choices; I only have a dozen or so pens and every time I look I see more that I like!

    Adrian

    • Hi Ashokdad,
      I haven’t been all that excited with the Omas 360. Doesn’t mean I can’t review it but it does mean I haven’t used it enough to review. I’ll put it in the queue to ink up and do a review in August (or so).

      Thanks for reading,
      Ray

    • Hi JD, Well, three of them is a bit much. They are a good size and comfortable for me to write with. The Smoke is a pain to clean which keeps me from inking it up. (It is c/c but I don’t like seeing the converter or cartridge in it so I eyedropper it.) It’s probably the one I’ll get rid of eventually. I have the orange (actually called amber) inked up now and like it a lot, both in looks and performance. It’s translucent so I can see the cartridge inside if I look but it bothers me less than a silver converter and is less visible than the mostly clear smoke model. I imagine it might also be hard to clean as an eyedropper since the inside is rough for the frosted look. I’ve never used it as a eyedropper for that reason. Physically they’ve all held up well. Personally, I like the uniqueness of the tapered barrel.

      Thanks for reading,
      Ray

      • Thanks, Ray. I appreciate your detailing your response! The amber is a very interesting look. Quite intriguing. I’m thinking about getting the plain ol’ Emerald, my favorite F-C acrylic.
