Frustration defined:

"Being at work and being informed by my wife that my cumLaude in brown is waiting for me at home.." Roll on home time.

Thanks Kevin for such a speedy response. My pen arrived here in blighty after just 8 days.

And now that I've just seen that photo above of the blue, I may well be ordering another....

Many thanks, once again,
Dean

Thanks a lot for the great deal and service!
Less than a week from the US to Germany!

Great pen and great dealer!

My M nib Brown arrived today, and it's lovely. Very smooth writer, too.

Pen budget be darned, I'm thinking of sending a PM on a blue, if you get more...

Got mine today. I, too am thinking about having a go at the brown. They are nice, and the price is at least $25 less than anywhere else. Thanks, Kevin!

Inked it with J.Herbin Blue Myosotis and liked my M blue so much I'm thinking about a F brown too.
Kevin, my section end is a bit different from the pictured ones, as it widens near the nib (don't know the technical term, could it be "flare"?).

I assume there are no functional differences, but if (when) I will get the brown one I'll ask you to have the straight one.

Recommended!
A pity Danitrio is phasing out these pens (I have also a couple of Phantas that are great users, if only a bit too heavy for daily use).

Hi Enrico,

It depends when the pen was made, some does have "flare" or "lip", but I'll get you a straight one on your next pen.

my fine-nibbed brown arrived today, 14 days from door to door. Here's the cheezy cell-phone pic: it's MUCH nicer in person. Thank you Kevin!

Hi Enrico,

If you are handy type and a bit daring, you can actually swap out the nib and put a gold nib from CS, Stipula, certain Bexley's nib should all fit this pen.
