I’ve been trying to get my hands on one of these herringbone Conway Stewarts for years, but I always got outbid. Until this week, that is. Not only did I get a herringbone, I got a RED one, and one of the least common models too.

That being the case, there’s not much point in me getting into my usual discussion of the pen’s good and bad points as a writing instrument. I’ve put a new sac in it; I have no doubt that it writes, probably very well, but when it comes down to it, this is a pen for looking at. So let’s do that.
