    What is your 'Grail' pen?

    Yes, I have to correct my words about the innovation about the nip.
    To be more specific, the retracting nib along with piston filling is the very innovative.
    Many pens with retractable nip mechanism don’t have the piston filling but cartridge/converter.
    Wonder how Montblanc design the mechanism

    It is innovative, but I'm not sure it's desirable. There's good points, but reliability seems like an issue. Ink capacity is going to be an issue. And if something goes wrong with the piston...and that does happen...the repair is gonna be non-trivial. It requires both hands to operate. And the cap doesn't post well.

    That...and it's bloody expensive.

    For something large...druther get the Pelikan 800 Renaissance Brown or Grand Place...but 800's are bigger than I like. And I have a 600 Grand Place; don't need the 800. Or one of the red Pelikan 101 special editions. Or a Nakaya and one of the new Aurora 88's, with a flex nib...combined, they'd be about the same cost.
    And it is also said, "go not to the Elves for counsel, for they will say no and yes."

    Yup. One of my Ferrari da Varese pens.


    I generally use the Yesterday more often though.
