Just beautiful! Wim and the other admins did a fantastic job with the FPN limited editions. I really wish I could have gotten an Etruria now that I've seen all the pens that have arrived. Enjoy yours in great health for many years to come!

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

Thanks for the lovely handwritten review and great photos! :thumbup:

I wholeheartedly agree with your assessment. I've had mine for nearly 3 weeks and the more I write with it, the smoother it feels. My favourie inks for it (so far) have beem Waterman Blue, Montblanc Royal Blue, and Iroshizuku tsuyu kusa, all lovely matching blues that shade beautifully with the italic nib.

It truly is a joy, well worth the investment and wait. For those still eagerly awaiting the arrival of their pens, I do hope they arrive swiftly and safely!

All the Best,
Gem

Mine is identical, except for the LE number.........and I'm loving it! My GP also loved it when I showed it to him the other day...........we always spend time playing with pens!!! :cloud9:

Congratulations Kev, and I have to say "Beautiful writing" too!
Each day is the start of the rest of your life!
Make it count!!!

Oh dear, another luscious display of my pen-in-waiting. This looks truly beautiful. Thanks for capturing it so well!
With the new FPN rules, now I REALLY don't know what to put in my signature.
