    @RogerStenning - Odd ya get an error. It's still alive and working for me. Just made a shortened url to the pic I took, which shows a view of the writing instrument you don't get from the official promos and videos.

    My three go-to EDC pens from top to bottom: Pokka Pen, Ti Arto EDC with Schmidt Easyflow 9000 M black cartridge (Kickstarter), Zebra All Metal F-701 (new style) with M black Fisher Space Pen cartridge.

    @oke: FWIW, image is fuzzy. How do you like the pen? I have several 849 myself. Although small diameter I find I actually like it!

    L'chaim!

    Just received this Lifomenz 20 pen display and am extremely impressed with the quality build. Solid (and heavy) build, wood laminate exterior, good quality hardware, and a glass window (not plastic). It's a keeper.

    Pens (left to right): Homegrown rollerball, Lamy Safari rollerball, Lamy Safari fountain pen, Lamy Al-Star fountain pen, Lamy Studio fountain pen, Montblanc Generations rollerball, Montblanc Meisterstuck rollerball, Pelikan M400 fountain pen, Pelikan R400 rollerball, Sailor Pro Shiki-Oriori fountain pen.

    I just Googled the Lifomenz 20 with the expectation that it would be a fairly expensive display case. What a surprise! I think I know what I'm getting myself for Christmas;). Thanks for sharing!

    No problem. I doubt you will be disappointed. I didn't expect much and was hesitant to spend the money sight unseen but I have no qualms now.

    The first thing you will notice is how heavy this puppy is. It weighs out to 5.33 lbs (with no pens). A solid display with good fit and finish. Looks great on my desk.

    It’s the Karas Kustoms mini render K in brass. Sadly they no longer make the mini and I’m not sure of the full sizes status since it was on clearance. But if you can get one on the secondary I highly recommend it!

    Fuzziness? Ugh, that's disappointing.

    Well, I suppose I like to have some control over the shots I take, even if they're nothing special or 'xactly pro-looking...

    Anyway, I like the 849s - this is the 4th; I have a few colorways. The ink cartridges usually write smoothly, and I like the quiet click action.

    & @volcomonix I'm gonna guess that the one which looks like a Cross offering is the Cross Classic Century Brushed Black PVD fp.
