Big Pens Without The Big Prices. (back In Stock)
Posted 04 September 2010 - 16:51
So.... if you still don't have one, maybe you should ask "what am I missing here?"..... Ok, the pens are not for folks who can't handle MB 149 size.
No hype, just a nice big pen, genuine Italian celluloid, and a nice smooth iridium nib all for not much money. You will pay more than this for pens made with resin, and certainly not with Italian celluloid.... just because a pen sounds Italian, does not mean the materials are sourced in Italy anymore ;-). True these pens only comes with a very simple small gift box, but heck, you can't write with the box and took up closet spaces anyway :-)
Oh, I thought I have equal numbers of brown and blue/grey, but turns out I have more blue/grey. Next shipment of Brown pens will be after 9/11. Thanks for all the interest. I rather like the blue/grey cracked iced pattern myself.

In reading this last post, are your stocks of the brown fully depleted until the September 11th shipment?
Yes, for the moment all Brown pens are gone (other than the ones I am holding for folks pending payments), but next big shipment will be after 9/11.

I got a brown one some months ago and I really like the size and quality. If possible, I would like to succumb to temptation and get a blue one with whatever nib as available. Let me know the PayPal account and I'll send payment.

Get yours while they last, it's a bargain!

I got mine in the mail today (blue/grey with a fine nib), and it's a superb pen.Substantial in size, fits (at least my) hand well, not too heavy and a bit on the dry side (tested with Parker Quink).The dryness suits me, for I'm a lefty.And the looks are amazing A definite user!

glad the pen is to your liking. These pens are NOS, and the nib has not been used. If one wants to increase the flow, simply on a piece of paper give the nib a few firm down strokes and should open up the nib a bit and increase the flow.
