It actually looks really nice
I've been wanting a good looking piston demonstrator, this is great.

When do you think they'll be ready? Like, are we looking towards a month or like a year?

EDIT: Nevermind, I reread this. So only a few months, Im looking forward to it.

*Drool* I would be very interested in this pen. Always wanted a demo pen and when this one comes out I would pick it right up especially at the posted price.

If you're looking for an opinion I like the case that flips open versus the tube casing and the nib labeled EA (most complex) design looks awesome.

Looks very promising keep up the good work!

Oh my...another beautiful demonstrator! And with that price range, you can definitely count me in once the pen is ready for sale.
