I note that they did not sell well. I bought the White Lighting fountain pen for £116 and later bought the same White Lighting fountain pen, ballpoint and roller ball on ebay, in total they cost less than £116. My partner and I love them, pity not many others did.

 

I am inspired to get the other four colours if I can pick them up cheaply. They are so lovely to look at.

Nice set.

I adore mine too.

 

Do they have different sized nibs ?

Orrell, the original colours are discontinued, but I am sure you can still find them if you search.

Tas, black is fine and the rest medium.

I came across some Taranis' at very low prices on amazon.ca last week.  I'm waiting for a green broad that I paid 48C$ for.  The other colours and nib sizes were available with prices between 50 and 75C$
