I would love the opportunity to get either of them. I am new to fountain pens and only have a pilot metropolitan. I think I would slightly prefer  the I Castoni, Tiger’s Eye do to it having a different nib than my current fine point.

Hi,
I don't own any stipula fountain pens, so I would love the chance to own and use one.

I don't mind either as each have their own strong points that interests me, however if I have to choose I think I would like the chance to get the I Castoni, Tiger’s Eye as it has a different nib and body type (currently only have metal and celluloid bodied FPs and fine and medium nibs)

Also wish to say, thank you for your generosity!  :)

I would love to win the Xalegrafica Alpha! I am new to the FPN and got my first pen, a lamy safari. It is much too wide and broad for me. I would love to try something fine and of course the black would suit me best as I am a nun! we share everything in common and I think the others sisters would like to use something that reminds them of the days gone by!

Difficult to choose one of these two pens: I don't own any Stipula pens and both of them are equally likeable.

 

Well, I'll use a statistic-guessing method: Since my premonition is that there will be more people choosing Xalegrafica, I'll go for the I Castoni, assuming I'll get more chances of winning this generous PIF  :unsure:.

Count me in.  I'll go for the Xalegrafica Alpha, just because of that filling system.  I've never had or written with a Delta, and I'd like to try.

Please sign me up for this giveaway as well. I would like the I Castoni Tiger’s Eye. I wouldn't like the Xalegrafica Alpha due to its lack of a clip.

Thank you!

Very generous PIF,

I for one would love to have the I Castoni for several reasons:

1. Simplest reason Stipula has been a brand I've wanted to try for a couple of years
2. Most of my pens are demonstrators or black. I really want a bit more color and orange is a favorite
3. I primarily use BOLD nibs and really want a stub
And
4. Totally my fault but I have an opening in my pen rotation (at least until I figure out how to fix my pen). My father was in hospice with stage 4 melanoma this Fall.
Without thinking I put my favorite pen - Visconti Back to Black - in my pocket so I could journal when I went to his room. (99.9% of the time my pens live in my Aston leather case)
He was uncomfortable and fussy when I got to the room. I helped him adjust but dropped my pen in the process. I guess the good news was it was the barrel and not the nib or cap
REMINDER: no matter how stressed distracted don't carry pens where they can fall ; ~ )

This is indeed a generous offer and i will be very happy to be a part of it. 

 

I have not owned or tried any italian pens and stipula will be one of the prized possessions in my humble collection if i win this PIF. 

 

Though any of the two will be highly appreciated, given the choice, I prefer Xalegrafica Alpha, mainly because i am not a big fan of metallic section or stub nib. That rules out I castoni. 

 

Could you please consider me for  Xalegrafica Alpha ?

Thanks for doing a PIF, this is my first time entering one.

I'm interested in the Xalegrafica Alpha.

I have a few vintage and modern pens and they're all in use. I haven't had an Italian pen, but i like the sleek look of the pen and I like button fillers.

I'm interested in the I Castoni, Tigers Eye. I've never had a Stipulated and I currently don't have a stub nib either. Thank you for the opportunity!

I would like to be included.  I've never owned a Stipula and I'm interested in the Xalegrafica Alpha, because I prefer small pens that post well.  I dislike metal sections, so the other pen is not a good fit for me.

1) Which pen you are going for;

 

I Castoni, Tiger’s Eye

 

2) Why you want that pen and not the other one.

 

I have no brown pens in my small collection and would love to have a Stipula. I also have large hands so the other might not be the best.

Stipula is one brand I haven't tried yet but really want to, ever since I found out they make the Passaporto pocket pen. But I couldn't risk buying one at that price without being able to try it first, and my only local fountain pen store doesn't carry them :(

 

I'd like to be considered for the Tiger's Eye, as I'm an absolute sucker for translucent pens. 


I'm always up for an ink trade!

Very generous PIF.

 

I'm in for the Xalegrafica Alpha. Reason? The filling system. It reminds me of the old-time crescent filler.

 

Thank you.

I think that this is only the second or third time since I joined 4 years ago that I've asked to be considered for a PIF. Though I have held many!

I would like to be considered for the I Castoni Tiger's Eye. Two main reasons :

1. I prefer a stub/Italic nib very much to a Fine one.

2. I just can't hold on to a pen that is slimmer in size because of Arthritis.

Thank you for the very generous PIF. And to whomever wins, Congrats!

If your out-go is more than your income,

 

Then your up-keep.

 

May be your Down-falll!!!

Great PIF, very generous of you.
So the answers are:
1) I know it is statistically wrong choice but I vote for Xalegrafica Alpha
2) Because I have neither experience with Stipula pen nor experience with ebonite (hard rubber) material, so I would like to try one ... and the filling system is interesting as well.
Thanks

Hello, thanks for this generous PIF. 

 

I would like to be included for the I Castoni.

 

The reason is that I have found that I like stub and italic nibs for 99% of my writing. I already own a handful of non italic/stub pens and I am not interested in getting more of those, all future acquisitions will be stub/italics.

 

Cheers!

Matias

Awesome PIF. 

 

I'd like to be included in the draw for the I Castoni, please. Huge fan of stubbish nibs, and the tiger's eye patterning is just plain cool.
