Recently, I bought a Récife pen from Swisher Pens.
In terms of bang for the bucks, this is probably my single best pen purchase. It holds about eight cartridges worth of ink, though it has no formal feed mechanism. In terms of mechanics, it’s a very old-style fountain pen.
The gold-plated steel nib is much more flexible than I’d expected, too.
Very happy. Want more colors.
