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
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.
