I need one, please!!!!  Just completed form, using my real name (pm me for that, if you need to), but PLEASE engrave "Irish" on the name cap, if I'm among the first 20 (and it looks like I am  :) ).  Thanks!!

I'm in! I love that I can get a JoWo nib on it - they have really aggressive feeds that seem less prone to blobbing on eyedroppers than the traditional hand-cut Indian feeds.

In the description you wrote that the pen is a 3-in-1 filler (eyedr + c/c), but on the form there's a choice between eyedropper and c/c: which is the difference between the two options? 
I mean, the eyedropper version can still accomodate c/c ? 

Thanks

I am confused by the filling mechanism and nib options.  I would like a Schmidt #6 nib, but I also would like to use this pen as an eyedropper.  If I choose c/c mechanism on the order form, can I still remove the converter and use the pen as an eyedropper?
