So ... if we're not allowed in, does that mean we weren't considered to have voted or this is only for a certain number of voters? I voted a while back, but get a message that I'm not allowed and there's no tab under the header on my screen.

Yay! I just ordered my Passaporto and celluloid Etruria!

Are our nib size choices getting through? On the confirmation screen, as well as on my Paypal receipt, it just shows 18k nib for the Etruria and steel F or M nib for the Passaporto.

Gah! I can't decide on the nib for my Etruria! Do I get a 0.9 italic, or a medium (like I get in everything else)?!?!?!?!

where to get the ink & info about my reviews!

A 0.9 italic IME writes like an F-M nib for normal writing, if that is of any help :D. And it is the easiest italic to start with, if you are not used to writing with one :D.

Stipula's 0.9mm italic is a delightful nib. It has a lot of nice line variation without being too sharp. Wim has a great ink review (link) that shows writing samples from all of the Stipula nib sizes. That review really helped me decide on the 52 nib (I was going to go for my usual 1.1mm italic, but changed my mind after seeing the writing samples).

Thanks, guys! After digging up my Lamy Vista with a 1.1 italic nib, I can see that 1.1 is too big for me. I'm heading for a 0.9 instead of the boring medium nib I get over and over on all my pens. I'm so happy, and I appreciate all the advice. :)

I also snagged a Passaporto and a Modello T. I am uber thrilled. :D :D :D

One question relating to the 'in stock' numbers for each pen. I'm assuming these are based on the votes already cast. Having thought about it, although I voted for an Etruria with a 14K nib, I would actually like to go for a 0.9mm CI which is only available on an 18K nib. Is this going to cause a problem?

Hi Paul,

The numbers are based on votes and are a little optimistic, I would think, based on the fact that some voted for all pens, all options.
We haven't place a final order with Stipula yet, only discussed possible numbers, so until we place the final order with Stipula, you can still change your mind, at least, prior to paying. :D Those numbers are really the maximum we will likely go for, the total maximum that is. If the distribution within the model variations is a little different, it won't affect the final price anyway.

HTH, warm regards, Wim
