I love that! :thumbup:

Ahemwuzzizzat??? It is a piston filler? Wow... I was already wondering about the blue band... but why of why the ink window is blue? Blue blood in a noble pen (regardless of the actual color inside)? Lots of questions this morning...

I was already wondering about the blue band... but why of why the ink window is blue?

Maybe it is just a window and the pen is loaded with blue ink? Well, I'll never find out for myself, as this is definitely out of my league, price-wise.
