It seems no one posted this news so allow me to present new kickstarter fountain pen project:

 

Trilogy Pens ZERØ

I believe the design is quite nice but I can't find any info concerning the pen dimensions. What are your thoughts on this one?

I saw this one, too, and thought it looked pretty nice - though it's not a million miles away from the design of the Namisu Nova?  A little less tapered, and no titanium option, but the same minimalist look and feel.  I have a Nova, and am very happy with it - so I'm trying to decide whether that means I should support this campaign too...

 

On the campaign page, details of dimensions were as follows:

 

SIZE

length capped: 155mm

length uncapped: 143.5 mm

max diameter: 14.5 mm

min diameter: 12 mm

avg grip diameter: 11 mm 

WEIGHT

capped: 39.8 g

uncapped: 31.4 g

The nibs are Bock #6 and come in three colors: black, silver, and gold.

Nice. Would consider one if I didn't have the Nova. I prefer the design of the Nova slightly over this one but if it is on par with the Nova, it will be a very nice pen.

The problem I have is nowhere does it tell us what the international shipping is. I got caught once already this year when after placing the order because I was reassured the P&P would be reasonable (foolishly I trusted the vendor!) I was hit with a $48 (US) postage demand!

 

Once bitten!

Thanks for the link.

This does resemble the Nova, which I have and like a lot; but I'm a sucker for this type of pen design.

I think I hear a rationalization knocking on the door.

Once you hit the pledge button (and before you hit confirm!), the website should calculate and display a cost for shipping.  For Australia, I think it's an additional US$20.

Hello Jay.

 

I wish you every success with the pen. It certainly looks gorgeous - especially in black.

Did anyone get one?  I got one in black with a silver nib and really like it.  Love the minimalism of it and the size.  My only cons are that it can get a little slippery and that it rolls around everywhere (that is kind of expected given the design but still annoys me from time to time)
