of all my recent ebay finds, this is the one that i've been using the most, very much a keeper and a user: the bexley-made woodgrain duofold centennial. i love the warmth of the ebonite, and the faceting is exquisite:

of all the modern parker nibs ever made, i consider the "banner" nib the most beautiful of them all, and it was used on this bexley:

i've seen this pen offered on the pentooling.com site for $450, and i was lucky to get it for considerably lower than that.

Fantastic pen, penmanila, and a great catch on ebay :)


Currently using:Too many pens inked to list, I must cut back! :) I can guarantee there are flighters, urushi, and/or Sheaffer Vac-fillers in the mix!!!

Very nice, love the wood grain, furniture and that is a great looking nib.

nice  pen ;)


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

I generally don't like these mix-up type pens, but I love this thing!
