I want to hate you, but for some reason I can't sell you...

    I wanted to see if anyone else has the issue I seem to suffer from. I have a few pens, that I am just not thrilled about. For one reason or another, I just never use them. When I begin to do writing test for sale threads, I just can't bring myself to do it.

    I have a Montblanc 149 with a 0.7mm Cursive Italic by Richard Binder, that I hardly use. I find it to be a bit crisp for my taste, but when I start writing with it, I fall in love for that brief amount of time. I also have a vintage Waterman ebonite flex pen. Now I NEVER use this pen, as it does take a bit of time to write with a flex pen. I inked up and did a writing sample, ready to sell, and told myself I need to hang onto this pen.

    Does anyone else ever do this?

    Honestly I haven't had that happen with pens.
    Shaving gear for sure.
  4. Waterman 52 1/2V. A wonderful flex nib in a pen too small for my hand.
