I have just got the 'illness' of fountain pens and am currently rocking the following three on a rotation...
- Yard o Led - Retro
- Faber Castell - Intuition Black
- Montblanc - Starwalker Doue

I also like the size and weight of the old Cross Century, of which I have many different types. I carry the 14k gold .9mm pencil everywhere. I did read an article about a fountain pen being found in a deep sea wreck, and after a little cleaning it was able to write with the original ink. Pretty badass if you ask me.

Vermonster wrote:Holy ****! I have a Tiffany Silver Century that Im afraid to use because I don't want to damage it. I might actually carry a silver Yard-O-Led though. That looks beastly.
