Hallo all

 

Dana pens in Tel Aviv has a sale every December.

 

I was there today. I found a beautiful NOS Bexley button filler and bought it immediately.

 

I found a picture of it at: http://www.parkville...collection.html

 

Its an orange cable twist dating back to 1994 and is no. 274 of a limited edition of 1000 with a 14k two tone nib. Unfortunately it came without a box, but you can't have everything.

 

Looking forward to using it

 

Chaim

What a lovely pen!  It was one of the first limited edition pens I saw, and pushed me to look back at vintage cable twist pens.

 

It's also a nice reminder of Dennis at Parkville Pens:  a true Bexley fan.

Hi

 

I have just now taken it out of rotation. Its a beautiful writer with a first class nib and very well-balanced. Its a pleasure to write with.

 

It has one disadvantage. Any ink in the cap is immediately visible. I had to wash out the cap every week for esthetic reasons.

 

Chaim.
