    I assume you don’t want chopsticks pix.

    Porsche TecFlex It was bought as part of a payoff from house related finance out of nowhere. I have the match propelling pencil and rollerball bought by my ex. They are in “silver”/“gold” though.

    Thread bump!

    This came last week, always wanted one and saw it at a decent price.

    Nice and weighty, feels good to write and fiddle with, makes you hands smell of brass like the handrail on a pub bar! Can Chuck it in a bag with my keys and it won’t suffer. Nib is broad, I’m left handed and fine nibs get a bit scratchy at the angle I write at.

    The suction filler holds about 1ml of ink, so cartridges are probably a better plan. The lid needs to be on the end to write with otherwise it’s too short, and it’s not brass/brass contact – there’s a nylon bush inside to give a nice sliding fit. I think the thread in the cap is nylon too though, so over tightening would strip it fairly easily.

    @bobsummers- what’s the weight like? I like a heavy pen. I recently picked up a stainless steel Lamy 2000 which is just lovely to write with, such a nice, balanced weighty thing to hold.

    On paper it doesn’t seem heavy, 50grm iirc – balanced even with the cap posted, but you do notice the heft. It’s basically double my Twsbi Eco… Definitely try one if you can before buying.

    I like the shape, I’ve never seen the plastic Sports but I’d like to try one too. Interested to see how the patina develops.

    To feed my nasty pen habit, I bought a Schneider Easy on Monday. Only about £3.70 for a nice cheap pen that writes well.

    Oops, bargain Lamy Al-star and various Diamine inks ordered from Cult Pens….
