I'm a big sucker for carbon fiber pens and especially when it's a nice fountain pen.

Picked up a new one for my collection this week to accompany it's other brothers..(The Delta is new thx to Bry) and thought I'd share my small collection..

So for your enjoyment: (top to bottom)

1. Delta Momo 30th Anniversary Fountain Pen
2. Visconti Carbon Dream
3. McClaren M900 all carbon

Vast differences in weave and finish to give it variety.

The McClaren has a raw unfinished carbon weave like those they use on the racecars
The Delta has a uniform weave with a "moderate" laquer glaze on top
The Visconti Carbon Dream is really interesting because it is a mid-laquer finish on a CF sheet that has been cut and wrapped around a clear resin barrel. The effect is pretty stunning.

Anyone else here in CF fountain pens?

Cheers

-Sam
