Yes correct, the wider bands will be engraved in two lines

Francis

Correction !`

Conid finally decided to engrave the LE text lengthwise in the barrel.

This will be done in Italic letters by a professional artisan engraver.

Consequently the titanium ring between the filling knob and the barrel will be reduced to its original width, being identical to the width of the  clip ring.

Hi all,

Attached two pictures showing the flat top version alternatively equipped with a silver "snake clip"

Price remains identical to the versions equipped with a titanium clip.

this pen looks lovely. wonderful francis.

 

a general question about the modern snake clips, how is it held in place preventing axial sliding? by friction and the winding tension of snake tail alone?

Francis - what nibs are available on this? Also - how many are left?


Too many pens; too little writing.

Hi Hari,

The spiral windings of the snake's tail are silver soldered, making it in fact a solid ring.

The bore in the ring is made conical and fits perfectly around the conical shaped cap

Hi all!

Attached a few"sneak preview" pictures of the exclusive packing of the Kingsize" In Flanders fields" LE Bulk filler in Tibaldi Imperio

On the cover flap of the leather box  you can see the AISI 316 stainless plate on which the famous "in Flanders fields" poem of John Mc Crae is engraved.

In the box a plexiglas plate featuring the pocket for the pen, a pocket in which a "dog plate" with the name of the owner and the pen's serial number is engraved.

Underneath the plexiglas insert a picture showing a field of poppies with one flower in its typical color.

A USB stick with a short historical background of the Great War will also be included.( laying under the "dog plate")

The pen itself is actually in production, in the second half of May I will show the final pictures, including the pen with the artist's engraving.

Note the pen is identical to the earlier posted pictures, only difference being the width of band at the filling knob  - which becomes now identical to the width of the clip band - and the lengthwise artist"s engraving on the barrel

Francis

Only to say that the right world is "Impero" not "Imperio".
