Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to review our new pens.
We have more than enough volunteers so I'm afraid the invitations are now closed.
Do you enjoy testing and reviewing fountain pens? We have five prototype Blackstone fountain pens available for testing and we would value feedback from the FPN community on the progress so far.
We will send these anywhere in the world free of charge to members of the FPN and in return for your review, the pen and nibs are yours to keep.
All we ask is a review that follows the FPN pen review guidelines.
The pens feature #6 JoWo nibs and will be available in EF, F, M, B, 1.1 Italic and 1.5 Italic.
Complete screw in nib assemblies will be available which will allow you to quickly and easily change or replace nibs.
They should retail for about $100 Australian or $73 US Dollars.
Complete nib assemblies should retail for about $25 Australian or $20 US Dollars.
The prototypes are available in Black PU Leather or Black Carbon Fibre finish with Gold, Silver or Titanium trim.
If you're interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and let me know your preference for the pen finish and trim, and two nibs that you would like to try - so you can review how the screw in nib assemblies work.
