    You have quite a collection of pens…but not quite as many as Tina. It is fun to see which ones you use. I have 2 Lamy safaris and a platinum preppy.

    I’m using the Preppy more when sketching out on-location. I’ve damaged or lost one too many “good” (meaning, more costly) pens. The Preppy has a decent nib and is cheap. If I damage or loose it, nothing much lost.

    Your Safari Vista is so utterly see through it’s invisible – as are all the others! Is it just me – or is the picture missing altogether? (The Safari Vista was my first Lamy and I loved it too).
