Very envious, this sounds great fun.

I hope the pub does pie and peas too.

How many people does it take to comment on a question on FPN? One to give advice and make suggestions. Another one to repeat everything that the first poster has said. Fourteen to share their own experiences of their pens and comment on how the original advice was flawed. Seven who just want to increase their post count. One to say that they have no regrets about doing anything and people should follow their example. Another to say that if there is anything wrong with the pen it is just down to using Diamine Shimmer ink. Six to argue over whether its a worth doing anything with it and the OP should just throw it away and buy their Parker 51. One to ignore who uses 'I' four times in each post. Another six to condemn all of the above as being  stupid and anyway they would rather be on FP Geeks. One to say that the pen is cheaper where they live. Five people to post pics of their own pens. One to say that if the OP had Faith then the pen would work - and gets banned very quickly. Finally, one to close down the thread because it has lost its way.

I will come and bring my wife.  She can't believe there are other people like me in Toronto!

 

How will we know each other, do they have a special section of the pub where we won't be see by normal people?

 

As for me, I will be the one with all my fountain pens in a pocket protector!

suddenly I feel inclined to come!  I was really considering the cafe creme until I found out the m800 rhodium demonstrator is coming out next month.  What nib do you have on that one, Gerald?

 

 

ps.  I still can't make it.  After work is kind of a no go for me.

I got it with a steel medium nib that writes fabulously. I also have a 14k two tone OBB on it's way from Richard Binder. :-) I'll bring that to a Saturday meetup after I get it

No other sizes for now. Beautiful colour combo so I hope it does

:-) he does actually depending on which size you're after and he has them on clearance prices--better than I've seen elsewhere. He also has his full flex pelikan nibs but those don't seem to be reduced too much. Have a look. Now would be the time to grab something as it looks like this is the last of his stock.
