How much can be written about Andy Lambrou’s Limited Edition LB5’s that has not already been said? They’re gorgeous. They write superbly. They are such great pens they garnered outstanding reviews from a number of leading reviewers, including SBRE Brown, Matt “PenHabit” Armstrong, David “Figboot” Parker, and Dan “The NIbsmith” Smith. Watch for yourself using links I have included at the end of this post.
Following these reviews the Limited Edition pens in each of six different colors were quickly gobbled up by the market and now are only very infrequently seen offered for sale. Here’s your chance to buy a seldom offered LB5 that is BRAND NEW, NEVER INKED.
Offered here is the Tairiku (continent) in Amethyst, number 33/50. LB5’s are based on the Sailor King of Pen but about 5mm longer and are made of diffusion bonded material that is unlike any other both in appearance and performance. The material was made in sheet form by Sintetica (Italy) and then diffusion bonded by Carville (UK) to produce the extremely durable and stable (not to mention drop dead gorgeous) material used in this pen. The pen is cartridge converter filled and equipped with the original huge two tone Sailor 21K gold nib in Broad that is nice and bouncy. The pen measures about 6 ¼ inches long capped and 5 3/8 inches long uncapped.
The pen is in brand new condition, has not been inked, and is accompanied by all it’s original boxes and papers.
Yours for $3250 includes shipping within US.
Shipment outside US may be available at cost. Please inquire.
The next two pictures show the LB5 next to a Montblanc 149 to illustrate the size. The 149 is not included in the sale.
Please note: I have used a different LB5 with Broad nib to produce the following writing sample. The pen you will receive is brand new never inked. You should be able to click on the sample to enlarge it in size.
Finally, here are links to reviews of the LB5:
