Haha, yeah. Crazily enough. Heminway's are currently selling over well over $2,000, sometimes close to $3,000. I think when the Hemingway came out, however, it was less than $1,000 brand new.
Thank you! Agreed! Shawn's work keeps getting better and better.
Well, yes and no. The nib wasn't made to flexible, exactly. Shawn and his jeweler just made a nib - this is only the second nib they've ever made. The first was like test nib, the nib on my pen was the first made for a customer. When Shawn made the feed and set the nib in the section, he realized it was really flexy. So it wasn't modified to flex, it was just made and happened to be flexible. Though from looking at the shape and length of the tines, it does seem logical that it would be somewhat flexible.
When the Hemingway FP came out (1992), it listed for about $350; a friendly jeweler who was an AD sold me one for about $250. I still have that pen and it is one of my two favorite FPs.
Your Hemingway inspired pen looks like a great pen - and unique!
