Any update on availability of the Curate please?

We are awaiting the platers, you would not think that such a minor part of the manufacturing process would hold everything up, but it has. It is often the case with the initial orders placed with suppliers, we hope that future orders for stock replacements will be easier for us. I will keep you advised as to progress. MrPen

I'm really excited to see this pen in someone's hands. Most of your pens, besides the Parson's, have been too heavy for me, but I still love their gorgeous looks.

Will it be available before the Curate?


Franklin-Christoph, Italix, and Pilot pens are the best!
Iroshizuku, Diamine, and Waterman inks are my favorites!

Apica, Rhodia, and Clairefontaine make great paper!

No, after. We have most of the parts for the Curate, the plating is waiting our approval, then we screw them together.

Fantastic? Any more information on the Commodore*? I'd love to see some measurements and maybe a video of the parts up close.

 

*With all these high-ranking pens, I feel like there needs to be a Lieutenant's Ambition pen or something at the entry level.

That sounds a lot like the Parson's Essential in size and weight. I think I'm in love!

 

Do you mind showing off the clip's springiness in the video? That's the one thing I detest about my Parson's, and something I've always enjoyed about your other pens. I just can't bring myself to buy such heavy pens.

An all metal pen, this time though. The clip is conventional and instead of being braced from inside the pen it is attached at the top of the cap in the usual manner. The pen in its italic form is ultra smooth and free flowing. The standard medium is on the fine side of medium, if that makes sense.

Would be interested to see writing samples of the stub italic. I don't suppose the pen posts does it?

Thanks, but I already own an Essential stub (the subject of the review that you have linked here). I am wondering how this new nib writes (it is quite different in shape from the nib in the Essential).

The English Curate has been delayed, the product did not meet the quality standard we demanded, so we have rejected the first batch and we have also requested some redesigning. It means the pen will be delayed by a month or so, but it will be worth it. The 'Commodore's Credential' is on schedule and supplies are expected mid April or maybe a bit before. MrPen.

I know it is not good for you, but in a way I am pleased to read this. It shows that even with a reasonably priced product you have an eye for detail and quality.. :thumbup:
