    My ideal power pen for the office is a Lamy 2000. A friend has one and I fell in love with it. Everything about it exclaims it’s superior quality. An Edison would also be perfect, especially the Sonoran Sunset Pearlette. A desk pen will also be beneficial. Having a “quick-draw” pen to write and sign checks would be excellent. Good inks to accompany them would be Noodler’s Black, Diamine Blue Black, Oxford Blue, Blue velvet, Terracotta, and Ancient Copper (the last two for the Pearlette :). This is another perfect Thursday Things again helping me to wind down after a busy day. Thank you!

    Quite a classy Thursday Things!! I’m a far cry from a Boardroom Boss, but I appreciate the presentation here. It’s funny how when I first discovered fountain months ago, I wasn’t too excited about the look of a Lamy 2000 – it was so unusual. Now that I’ve learned more about pens, especially the Lamy 2k, I look forward to owning one one day.

    Another wonderful Thursday Things, so wonderfully executed and photographed, and a most stunning collection. Before I retired, two of my fountain pens were often used in meetings: my Blue Carbonesque Vanishing Point and my Waterman Carene. Both would be quite at home in any board room! Since I retired I have acquired the Edison Beaumont, the Lamy 2000, and the Platinum Carbon Desk pen. I wished I’d had these three at work back then! Both are excellent choices.

    I also vote for my Edison Collier in Burnished Gold – very business like with that lovely pearlescence when the light hits it, and the Edison Arctic Currents Nouveau Premiere. The Pilot Stargazer, Lamy Dialog 3, Aurora 88, and the Tamitio Marsala all are Board Room worthy too. This Thursday Things made my morning!

      Between the VP and the Collier, I’ve got my work cut out for me to save up. I think the Collier might get bumped again so I can get the Blue Carbonesque VP first (different nib than my Premiere AKA the other Edisons) but I am still going to make that Collir happen at some point. I also need to get my boyfriend a pen for starting college (thinking an Eco). Soon enough, he’ll be at Boardroom Boss status though and I can get him a distinguished pen. He comes home from the Army next week!!!!

        I would so have loved to have had an Eco when I was in college! Such a very practical pen – lots of ink, reliable, great writer.

        • Lydia At Goulet Pens

          That was my thought 🙂 He’s gonna need all the ink capacity he can get for notes. I have to let him try mine though to decide what nib size he needs.

        Hi Lydia, just had to jump in here and say I’m so happy for you, that your boyfriend is coming home soon!!! My son enlisted (with the Air Force) at the end of last year and will be stationed overseas for the next few years. At least he’ll be back for visits.

        I’m also working on saving up for my next pen, my first one with a gold nib! The pen at the top of my list keeps changing, too. (And the list keeps growing.) After reading reviews and research, I’m planning on the Platinum 3776 Century. I want to start practicing Spencerian script with a fountain pen (without worrying about using a flex/dip pen for now).

        • Lydia At Goulet Pens

          Thanks, Angel! Those visits are certainly precious time together. Best of luck to your son.

          I too have yet to get a gold nib. The VP is the first one I’ve really felt I had to have. The 3776 is a great pen too. Hope you can get one soon. 🙂

    I’m the kind of person who when told that a Montblanc pen was “a sign of taste and distinction”, always used a Bic in protest of the idea – I’m obviously not a boardroom type. I would probably stick with my Pilot Metropolitan, although I might go with a Platinum 3776 if the barrel were just a little longer. I don’t like posting and it just barely fits my hand.

    Great Thursday Things! Too bad it was a little too late for Boss’s Day (11/16)….would’ve made some nice gifts. 🙂
