Close-up of the 18k nib. I apologize for the blurriness -- my macro wouldn't cooperate.

From top to bottom: Sheaffer Valor, Sheaffer Connaisseur, Lamy Safari, Parker "51", Pelikan M200

When I get a chance, I'll be posting pictures of my pen pilgrimage to Janesville, WI and Fort Madison, IA.

Edit: I just noticed that Sheaffer spelled "Connoisseur" as "Connaisseur", but my original written review still reveals the "incorrect" spelling.
