Just found this thread (yes, as a matter of fact, I do live under a rock).

Speedy, it looks like you have an awesome pen there and I can't wait to get my hands on it. A pen of, by, and for FP users, what could possible be better?? Well it would be getting the reddot design award for doing it! That is great achievement, congratulations to you and your team for putting it all together and making it work!

Congratulations on the reward and the international recognition. You and your team have created what looks to be an awesome pen. I can't wait for them to become available; however, I am starting to worry that they will sell out before I get a chance at one.

Wow, congrats on the award. Can't wait to see these pens in production!

I've always thought there should be more of a market for piston-fill pens in the $40-$100 range. Hopefully you can design several models, with SS and gold nibs, screw-cap, push-cap, all kinds of unique low-cost designs.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks. we will keep working on different models to become a series, soon as most of you got the pen, feel the quality... and like it then we are confidence to invest on next model or project.

About the user manuel, I think a simple one as below should be good, how do you think?

Hi Speedy,
While that explains filling adequately, will there be disassembly/re-assembly instructions?

Speedy: Looking better, and closer, all the time. Lloyd has a good point-one of the really neat things about this pen is that the average user can, if he/she has the directions, disassemble for cleaning. A brief set of directions would be neat.
By the way, did I miss it? Is there a 'I wnat one' sign up list?If not maybe you could consider that also. Thanks, Tom

I am looking forward to writing a review of this pen. Unlike the other Chinese/Taiwanese pens that I am currently reviewing, this is all original design and styling. Most of the others I am working on right now have design and details liberally borrowed from other successful pens, and a complete lack of innovation in the filling department. Please let me know the earliest I will be able to buy an example of this work, so that I can get on with torture testing it as soon as possible.

I was also thinking about the assembly and disassembly instructions. Is it possible to print it? Or at least put it online--to save paper and printing costs--but that means some people will never get to see them! :P

Hi Lloyd,

you are right, it should have disassembly / re-assembly instructions, but it is not so easy for me to figure the illustration out so I was trying skip this.
It seemed I cannot. Let me try it tomorrow figure out the steps then have me people make the illustration.Posted ImagePosted Image

Hi Tberry010, you did not miss it, there is no sign up list at the moment. I want to have it, but the programmer told me it is complicate for us to do it now to handle request from Taiwan, China, USA and other countries, our web store setup is still very small and too fee people to handle this. Sorry, but I hope eventually we set it up.

Hi Speedy,
Is it a good idea to consider a wait list for purchase, here on FPN?
Thank you very much.

As soon as some pens will be sold, I bet we'll have some nice full disassembly/reassembly/maintaining instruction with plenty of pics right here... (seems volunteers abound)

I can't wait ... but I have a question... I might very well have missed it..
Are the pens available in nib sizes other than medium....
