A photo thread for those who enjoy the finer things in life: capacitive buckling springs and great writing instruments.

Other fine keyboards are welcome here too, like Model Ms, beamers, and the like.

No headphones allowed though, this isn’t r/mechanicalheadpens.

I will go first, with a selection of my daily drivers (too many to all fit on the pen rest I’m afraid):


Keyboard: New Model F77

Pens, left to right:
  1. Montblanc Meisterstück FP
  2. Helix Oxford Premium rollerball (bought it as a body for Signo 207 refills but its own refill is very nice)
  3. Signo 207 gel refill in Sheaffer VFM rollerball body
  4. Sarasa Clip refill in Hi-Tec-C Cavalier body
  5. Pentel EnerGel alloy body
  6. Pentel Tradio EnerGel
  7. Lamy Safari FP
  8. Pilot V-Pen erasable FP
  9. Vision Elite rollerball

When I clicked on the thread, I had expected you to exhibit the use of pencil trays. ;)

Same. Seems like a glaring oversight

Where else to put the pencil if not on top of your keyboard. Atm an Unicomp Ultra Classic at my office desk. 8-)

Oh I'm definitely getting in on this!
Scarpia, is that an MB149 or 146? Either one, awesome!

Here's my quick pic with pens on hand!


top row: Pelikan 805 Blue Dunes, Sailor King of Pen, Aurora Optima
middle row: Omas Paragon, Pilot Vanishing Point
lower row: Visconti Homosapiens, Lamy 2000

Wow @Gunsight1 - that’s a classyglorious set of instruments!! The Pelikan, the Sailor 1911, a Visconti, and the Vanishing Point?! Holy crap dude.

My MB is a 146, bought it used many years ago but I hate to admit that I never used it much since the nib it came with is far too stiff for me, and I’m not brave enough to try to replace it. TBH I should just sell it and buy another with the right nib.
