I have a Mont-Blanc Meisterstuck Warner Edition. It was a special edition given to Warner Music executives to commemorate their 25th anniversary. Ended up in my hands thanks to my uncle, who used to work at Warner Music. The catch? I'm afraid of using it! I am still considering whether to sell it or keep it or use it...

Have wanted a Lamy 2000 FP for a long time, as much for the bauhaus design as for a new pen. I'm thinking there's a 15% chance I'll want to get the nib tuned up, and other than in reviews the Lamy piston system hasn't been known for Toyota/Lexus QC.
 
Guess I could go for a Platinum Chartes Blue/Rhodium 3776, but want to get away from Japanese design this time out. Of course I could save a bunch by getting the 2000 rollerball version. :O) Still a tuned Lamy 2000 FP is a much finer show of perfectionist-driven consumption, right?

I wonder if there is any pc software for printing letters that look like they are handwritten with a fountain pen. If so, I wonder how good they are. Are any sophisticated enough to incorporate random variances into the print, making the final result indistinguishable from something that was handwritten?

Any opinions on a Montblanc 146, which I'm considering instead of an L2K? *Possibly* a pre owned Bordeaux late model--otherwise a new one in black. Are current production still worth it? Any recommended pre owned sellers?
 
 
 
This one doesn't ship to Hawaii.

The Bordeaux in the third link above is from a bonafide Montblanc dealer called Handelshaus Rheinländer, but I decided to moderate my MB quest for the time being. On order is a black/platinum SkyWalker ball point. Expected delivery date is 3-7 weeks--yikes!

Anyone else buying any cheap pens on ebayEbay?
It's pretty impressive what you can get for a buck... DELIVERED.
Trying some different Jinhao right now, 159's (a BIG) pen) and 450's (also decent sized).
They're fun!

Cheap pens is a great topic. I stand by my Hero 329s (I've got 3), and the Hero 856 if I want something bold. Also just got a Schneider "voyage" FP for about $4.
 
I love luxury as much as the next person -- possibly more -- but in the world of fountain pens, this former L2K owner is really really content with the cheap options.

I've had hit-or-miss luck with Hero 616s.  Just got a few of the "jumbo/doctor"  sized ones to see if they are any better. 
 
I've become very enamored with Jinhao pens lately.   I have a few x450 and x750s that write and look good.   I REALLY like the 159's, and now have one in almost all the colors they make.   They are a BIG pen,  the size of a Montblanc 149.  Pretty amazing for $3.49 delivered on Ebay.   I'm using the orange and the black ones in my EDC right now as my Halloween pens.   I even call the orange one 'Punkin'.   LOL

If it's still unused, might be best to keep it that way. The 146 is worth about $250-300, the 149 is worth $300-350. 
 
If it's been used, continue to use it! It's a tool, deserves to see use. Treat it well.

This is a sad thing.
 
On the other hand:
 -my 8 year old starts to use a fountain pen at school. -This may compensates your post

 - I got my LAMY 2000 back from service for a €55,- they replaced the nib and "ink channel system" after I dropped the pen by letting it roll off my desk because I did not put the cap on its rest on the pen´s back
