    The Retro 51 set arrived today -- a day early! Love it when that happens. I'm a big fan of Retro 51; these will pair up with the Aurora when it arrives.

    L'chaim!

    I ordered my first Matthew Martin Pen today. I had been searching for one with the newer machined pocket clip. The clip on a pen or knife is very important to me as it is seen when clipped to the pocket. I also believe that a custom piece should not have a simple bent clip for the price that is typically paid.

    Note: this is not my picture, my pen should arrive by the end of the week.

    The Aurora arrived yesterday evening. One of the things I like about vintage Auroras: they're not small in terms of length. Neither are they bulky. Just feel great in hand, at least my experience!

    I have a Hinderer Investigator and Fellhoelter TiBolt. Maxmadco ti and Tactile Turn Shaker on the way. I also got in on the Tactile Turn bolt and Ti Arto on kickstarter. Still trying to find something I like. My favorite is the Mont Blanc Fineliner refill but I don't care for pens with caps. I'm flipping between the Pentel Energel and Schmidt Easyflow right now.

    Nothing in the mail. It is time to head to the art store for a box of Berol Turquoise 3H. On my last one.

    I have two Platinum Preppy 0.5 incoming along with o-rings for the eyedropper conversion. Also have a 4.5oz bottle of Noodler's Heart of Darkness which comes with a Charlie eyedropper pen. So pumped!

    I have a few more bladder fill fountain pens and a screw fill that were in the office that got cleaned out.
    I need some ink.

    Just acquired a Jetstream clicky in 0.5 and another in 0.38. The line is super narrow for both, narrower than I require for my own writing (and I use 0.3mm lead pencils, so that impresses me).

    I haven't really decided what I think of them yet.

    I just received a couple of Retro 51 pens too: the vintage black one that has the algebra handwriting on its barrel is very cool; and an ice blue version. The range of colours is very attractive and I could imagine many people collecting the whole set. As a rollerball it is quite fine writer than I am used to though I am ver happy with both of them. They tend to ride high in the pocket though the clip is pretty secure.

    tbzbbt: IIRC, that black one with the algebra on the barrel is part of a pen/pencil set dedicated to Albert Einstein? If you're also into mechanical pencils, the Retro 51 mp's are great. Typically with 1.15 mm leads, plus a silicon eraser that is actually useful!

    I'm a big fan of Retro 51 products as you can see!

    L'chaim!

    I love my Hex-O-Matic, EDC it five days a week. I use Itoya Gel refills in it; even smoother than Pilot G2's.
