I didn't plan on buying one today (though I have wanted to get one).  A new-in-box flat top for $80 was way too good to pass up.  I got #29 Green on Green with a fine nib.

 

Anyone in the Columbus area, Robert Mason in the Short North has more Bexleys at that sale price through tomorrow.  I don't recall which other ones they have other then definitely #30 Blue with Brown.

I have an orange Flat Top that I got straight from Bexley on their eBay listings.  I really like mine - writes great, and has a great feel to it.

Nice to know that Howard is providing some of his non-production pens to Robert to sell. Just the kind of thing which can happen in a place like Columbus. I hope they both do well in this endeavor.
