English Pens: Swan, Onoto, Burnham

Mabie Todds are among my favorite pens because they made such great nibs - right up there with the best early Moores. The top of the MT and Co line were Swans, with Swallows as a midline and Blackbird as the discount line. Later they added the Jackdaw as their econo-pen.

I've included Onoto and Burnham on this page because they're other solid English pen companies, although I acquire fewer of them than Mabie Todd pens.
