I'd add some of the more understated pens from the St Dupont Liberte and Caran d'Ache Leman range to the OP's search but you couldn't improve too much on your original list IMO.

Ive always liked duponts but never bought one. Im sure ill add that to the list....montegrappa is without a doubt my favorite pen though.....funny, my 2nd favorite writer is ugly, and pretty cheap...a parker sonata....but it writes better than most of my FPs.

Montblanc is ok for writing shopping lists and doing crosswords. You want a real fountain pen? Go to London. Go to Burlington Arcade. Walk into Penfriend. Buy something baller. Post here. http://www.penfriend.co.uk/about.html

+1 on Dupont. I've had 2 palladium Orpheos....sadly I left one on a plane. I had heard that there was a fire at the Dupont factory and they were consequently havong prodcution issues?

Amen. No branding is key, after all, it's a pen.

For a GREAT cheap pen, check out the zebra 701 - it's my favorite day to day pen.

I've tried several over the years and have found Pelikan to be my favorite brand.

I'm not a fan of modern day Montblancs, but probably purely for aesthetic reasons. On the other hand, I have a real affinity for accessories from the 60's and the MB's from that era I think are really fantastic. I've been using a Montblanc No. 14 for the past year as my daily writer/sketcher and I couldn't be happier. For design geeks, it has the added cache of being designed by Albrecht Graf Goertz, of BMW 507 fame.

That's a nice '60s vintage Mont Blanc, I find the modern ones way too blingy and over the top for my tastes. My personal writers are a couple of vintage Parker 51s from the 1950s and of course a nice Pelikan M800, a way better pen than the MB 146.

Ill argue this to the day I die. The MB 146 is ok. I like em well enough...but the pelikan wins when compared...every time. If you disagree, yer just a MB fanboy.

i have a visconti that i really like. not as expensive as some of the dupont pens that strike my fancy, but it writes amazing and feels substantial.

save your money, pens get lost so often, go with a $5 pilot just seems like a waste imo, also how often do you write vs type
