Funny thing is, I haven't written (wrote?) in cursive for a really long while! Will definitively take some time getting used to it!

I wandered into a pen shop here in Turin and bought an Omas AM 87 in the brown briar wood. Fantastic nib. I got a small 'sconto' but probably still paid more than internet price. The shop keeper seemed like a nice guy and let me try all sorts of Omas pens.

Well worth paying extra. There's an art supply store in San Francisco, Flax is the name, that carries an extensive amount of fountain pens, ink, and paper - it's of course more expensive, but it is essential to buy from stores and shops like this so you can continue to have access to the experience and knowledge that such shops provide.

Waterman makes fine pens, pencils, roller-balls and ball point.  Black lacquer with gold costs about $75-150 but I have mine for about 10 years and they still get compliments. 

Makes my signature even more bold than it already is with the fountain pen and roller ball.  I rate them better than Monte Blanc.

I write pretty much exclusively with FPs, though I did rock a Kickstarter campaign for a nice aluminum body to hold G2 refills.

Collection of Fountain Pens include:
- Lamy 2000 Stainless
- Lamy 2000 with modified italic nib (Richard Bender)
- Pelikan M605 (red / sterling, Japan Ed.)
- Pelikan M805 (Stresmann)
- Pilot / Namiki Vanishing Point (Black-Out Ed.)
- Montegrappa (sterling)
- Yard-o-Led Grand Viceroy (sterling)
- Various older Waterman pens

Sam Flax is good stuff. There's one across from my office. I should update my collection with a pic.
