I'm sure it's happened to most of us. It's happened to me with pens both vintage and modern. However... I seem to have the worst luck with Bexleys.
I have a Bexley 56 (not 58!) in blue-and-black ebonite with rhodium-plated trim. Pretty cool, huh? Well... I really wanted the red-and-black one with gold trim, but they were sold out before I knew it. And although I've gradually (very gradually) warmed somewhat to the blue one, it remains a dark and not terribly attractive color, and definitely does not have that classic (I might even say iconic) 1920s ebonite look. It's been hard to get past that.
A while back Bexley made a "torpedo" pen that was designed to accept Sheaffer Imperial nib-and-feed units. That sounds like a match made in heaven. Those Imperials have amazing nibs, and the tapered section is both easy to clean and very comfortable to my grip. Those vintage pens do seem a bit dainty by today's standards, so the Torpedo looked like the best of both words. However... By the time I found out about them, my preferred color was already gone. And then I dithered. And then I ended up getting none at all.
Now I see that Peyton Street Pens have a limited edition Bexley that also uses Imperial nibs, although the style is very different from the Torpedo. Of course I have to get one. My first choice was black with gold trim. Oh... Well of course, that's the one that's already sold out. That figures.
I don't know when those pens were first introduced. I vaguely remember seeing them some time before, but for some reason they didn't make much impression. I guess it took a while to put two and two together and realize that, yes, that was something cool that should be in my collection. I am not accustomed to buying pens in a snap. Usually I can take a while to ruminate, and other things may come first, and it doesn't matter that much. With these Bexley limited edition pens, it matters.
