Neil, at the risk of life and limb, may I observe that if you love your solid 
gold nib Sheaffer fountain pen (I still have the Sheaffer snorkel pen I gave 
myself as a gift in law school 40+ years ago), try an Omas Paragon fountain 
pen. The U.S. importer advised me not too long ago that Omas makes its own 
vegetal resin - for the barrels - from cotton it buys directly from only one 
farm source in South America. Tell me that Mont Blanc or any of the other 
"high-end" pen manufacturers care that much about their products. Omas' 
founder was the inventor of the process by which celluloid was made 
non-flammable and therefore created the first celluloid fountain pens.

Back to Leicas.
