It would appear they're getting something very small. That's pretty cool.

Yes...something very small when closed...but that converts to something pretty large when posted...FOR ME!:happyberet: :bunny01:

That thing is AWESOME!

Darnit! Your going to make me do one of two things...

1. buy one of your pens or
2. start making my own kitless

Both of those sound expensive!

Thanks!! :)

It's much cheaper to buy kitless - but so much fun to make them. ;)

Thanks, all. I'm pretty excited for this curvy-cutie pen.
So, what's the trick to waiting for a pen to arrive?
-Pace the floor?
-See a hypnotist? (Nah...he'll just make me think I'm a chicken and how could I write if I had wings?)
-Hold self-debates regarding what ink to load the incoming pen with? (I think I'm going to try a 2:1 mix of PR SSB and Noodlers LegalLapis.)
-Meditate? (Nah...to me, the sound of one hand clapping is the same as the sound of ink drying. So, I'd just start -thinking about the incoming pen.)
-Take a nap? (Nah, I'd just have a day dream about the pen.)

Is it a cartridge pen only, or an ED pen also?

Do you have length measurements for it? nm I see you have those on the blog page for the pen.

It will fit small carts - but designed to be an eyedropper. :)

-Hypnotist? You can write in chicken scratch
-Hold self-debates? You could end up re-electing yourself!
-Meditate? Your right you'll just meditate about how great the pen will be
-Take a nap? You can sleep?

I don't know how much ink it can hold - but the pencils take 5mm lead. :)

All I know is it holds a lot...it's just an eyedropper filled cavity leading into an XXF nib. Who knows when it'll need another refill...:happyberet:
