    Twsbi Eco. I donít like larger pens and typically donít like Fine nibs but I bought this pen and itís both but itís actually a really nice writer and especially at the price. My 2nd place would go to the Diplomat Magnum
    My collection changes so often I got tired of redoing my signature

    Right out of the box would be my Gold Barrel, Zig Zag design Pilot Metropolitan with medium nib. I wasn't expecting much for $15. Turned out to be an good writing pen for the price. Also came in a decent looking case. Design makes it look more high end than it really is but not over the top, and came with a squeeze converter. Would make a great first fountain pen for most people IMHO.

    Lamy 2000 for me as well. I had seen photos of the pen and thought it looked dull an uninteresting. I'm not entirely sure why, but I eventually decided to try it out on a whim. Probably because of all the positive reviews I had seen. When I actually got it, I was impressed with how solid it felt, while at the same time being ultra lightweight. The clip felt unusually robust, the piston was solid, and the snap cap felt more secure than I had expected. In person the brushed finish took on more depth, and I found the pen was comfortable to use even for extended periods of time. I also liked that I could see the ink level if I wanted, but the windows were low profile enough to disappear under normal use. It was such a joy to use that I started to think about it differently and really came to like its minimalist Bauhaus design.

    On a side note, I believe the 2000 has been in production for the second longest amount of time for a pen, with the Montblanc 149 being the first. Very different pens, but each classics in their own right.
