Budget Max:$200, Goal: Replace Prof. Business Pen, Recommendations?


I would just like the most bang for my buck.
I have recently displaced my MontBlanc, and might as well use this as an opportunity to upgrade and get a better pen at a much better value.

Thank you in advance for any insights/recommendations.

How often do you "displace" expensive pens? I'm asking because when I came to the conclusion that I simply cannot keep a nice pen more than 3 months, I decided to stick to cheap Pilot V5... and sometimes indulge in a Sanford Uni-Ball (my favorite )

I'd go with an Aurora. Great quality and well within your budget.

My current "working" pen, i.e. used for the bulk of my work writing, is a Waterman Expert II rollerball. Waterman makes great rollerball refills, but a great thing about Waterman rollerball pens is that they take Pilot G2 gel refills without modification, giving you a $1 refill that glides well, is available in any grocery store, and is archival-quality ink.

I think a Pelikan M400 is a good value.

I'm a big fan of Graf Von Faber-Castell. They have models that come in all types of colors of woods or in silver or gold (not sure what the actual metal is). They are very high quality and heavy.

I have this one which is dark brown grenadilla wood:
