This is the second review that I have done and this is the

second JEB's Pen that I have reviewed. For those of you

not familiar with JEB's Pens, the pen maker is John Brady

who is one of the easiest people to deal with if you are

considering a  custom pen. This is the third pen I have

purchased from John and they seem to get better with 

each one. We are so lucky to have so many great builders 

at FPN.

 

Appearance and Design : The pen design was mine and

John finalized the design with a few suggestions. When I

opened the box it shipped in what caught my eye was the

color of the acrylic. The acrylic was supplied by Richard Greenwald

and is called Urushi Red. As for the design, it is very simple.

Construction and Quality : Perfect ... Did I mention that the

finish is superb! All the pieces fit together snuggly and you 

can feel that the pen is solid.

Weight and Dimensions : The weight is perfect for me and the

dimensions are just what I ordered. The dimensions are :

 

Length: Capped = 5.47" / Uncapped = 4.97".
Diameter: .60" (end to end).
Weight (without ink): Capped = 23.5 gms / uncapped = 15.5 gms.

 

Nib and filling : I had the pen fitted with a Meister Nib, 1.1 Italic. I

love these nibs and this one performed perfectly right out of the box.

It is a typical C/C filler.

Overall conclusion : I have been using it all weekend and I am a very

happy camper. It feels good in the hand and has performed with no

issues. Another solid, well built pen from JEB's Pen's.

affiliation with JEB's Pens ... just a happy repeat customer.

I agree 1000%.  Jeb is a fantastic artisan and the ultimate go to guy for customer service.  I have a Lhoste and Nazca , and PFB in fountain pens.  Like the OP, Jeb worked with me to come up with a cigar shaped G2 Refill compatable roller Ball Pen.  One of my NMPCC associates had him do a custom design for her , which she's very pleased with.  Usual disclaimers apply.  Great review and identical to my thoughts and pens from Jeb, Jim
