Thanks for the reply.
Right now I'm using this Retro 1951 Tornado.
One of these, those the Zebra's get less action now that I have the big I design using the Fineliner Mont Blanc. When that bleeds through certain paper I use the Cap O Matic Fisher Fine point from the Forum store!
I've noticed a pattern...
Black Moleskine Pocket Notebook ($12)
Black Quiver Single Leather Pen holder ($25)
Black Gel Pilot 0.7mm Pen ($2)
Black insert Baltz Exemplar - Holden ($185)
The Baltz Exemplar Holden is a great writing instrument...I use it at work and while I'm off. Handcrafted wood (exotic) design, stainless steel hardware and the EasyFlow 9000 rollerball writing system from Schmidt. It writes and flows smoother than most ballpoint pens and dries a lot quicker than Gel ink.
I bought it for my dad as a gift as he is a V.P. & would benefit from having a nice writing instrument...but I'm thinking I may have to order another one for him
After I lost a green plastic one, I ordered a raw aluminium Kaweco Sport (EF nib) yesterday. It came today, including the ink (Lie de Thé from J. Herbin) and the converter I ordered as well.
I tried to fill the converter but failed. My solution was to use a injection needle on a syringe. Any better tips on that topic?
The Baltz pens look really nice..How is the width and comfort writing for long periods? How is the wood
holding up? Price is getting out of my allowance or I would have gotten one...
How do you like the pen, does the lack of a clip hinder the ability, and is it worth the money, do you have any other of his pens?
My primary notebook is a large Evernote Moleskine. Attached to the Moleskine is a Quiver pen quiver which holds my Retro 51 Hexomatic ballpoint. Great pen with a nice weight and writes very well.

I don't carry this notebook on my person but it is used everyday for research for my novel. The pencils are rotring 300 and two uniball kuru toga. All three cost me less than 30 bucks from eBay.
Skillcraft B3 Aviator
I use all three on a daily basis.
Rotring 600 pair, new and old.
On my blackness wishlist for quite a while
Really sharp pen, have one in the cart, can't decide on this or caraway, holding off and trying to talk myself out of it though
I got a Fellhoelter TiBolt today!!

The width is isn't as big as it looks in the picture. I have large hands so it fits me no problem. Even if someone with smaller hands would pick it up and start writing I don't think there would be an issue either. It is definitely comfortable to write with for long periods. The wood is also holding up. It's coated in a protective chemical (I think) and the only way it would become damaged is by it being dropped on a corse surface or if you actually try and scuff it up yourself. It is an expensive pen, but when I pick it up and start writing I am reminded how smooth it writes, it's one of those noticeable things about this pen and I smile to myself at how smooth it is. When I first got itI decided to "take it for a test drive" at work. I am an LEO, going on six years, and as you can imagine conduct a lot of writing. Wether it be parking tickets, traffic tickets, accident reports or arrest warrants. I go through pens a lot. So the other day, just after midnight, I stopped a gentlemen and wrote him two tickets. As I was gathering some pertinent information of his he was following along with my hand as I was writing it down. I assumed he was just reading what I was writing, which is what people normally do when receiving tickets from the Police. Before I finished writing and handed him his two tickets he just blurted out "dude that's a nice pen, what is it?" My response..."Expensive, like your tickets.." Needless to say he didn't find the joke funny.
I don't think you'd be dissapointed. I'd try it out, their return policy is 90 Days, no questions asked.
How are you liking the pen? Can't wait to get mine tomorrow!

As already said, I got the EF nib, and the converter for using the pictured ink. This combination doesn’t work too well, but I’ll try Pelican blue-black ink cartridges next and expect this to have much better ink flow. I just need to get the other ink out first.
A bulb syringe works wonders for cleaning ink out of the feed if you don't already have one.
