Very pretty.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

I'm guessing that if you have to ask the price, you probably can't afford it....

Hello, this edition is actually the most affordable model Grayson Tighe has ever produced, the fountain pen is priced at $1,200.00 and the Rollerball/Ballpoint is $1,000.00 and this is very close to being a sold out edition.

Interesting. But having looked at the pen on the Airline web site, I have to wonder how long the coloring would last. "Fired" pens or nibs, where a welding torch is applied to metal, don't seem that long lived, with the very thin layer wearing off. At least from what I've read on FPN.

I have a Nemosine "torched" nib and the color started coming off within 12 hours, wherever the ink touched it. Now, there's still a good bit left and where the color came off the metal underneath still has a neat tone to it. It still looks really, really good. However I am still a bit disappointed. I knew it would come off eventually but I didn't think it would happen literally over the course of an 8 hour work day.

I love that fired effect, especially the fact that it's done on the nib, too.  The pen is gorgeous!

 

In answer to the person who had their fired finish flake off the pen:  I have a Kaweco Fireblue Liliput that has this type of fired finish.  It's stainless steel that has been fired.  I've had it now for a couple of years and I use it pretty often, and I've never had any problems with the finish.  I'm no expert, but I think it has to do with the quality of the basic material and the technique used in the firing.  It seems like my Fireblue Liliput is fired "deeply," and that it's not just a superficial coating.  Perhaps the Nemosine pens don't start with real stainless steel or titanium; they might just start with a cheaper base metal and then add fire.  All this is just speculation on my part.   

 

I seriously doubt whether you would have that problem with the pen pictured here!

Is the nib fired or just the pen? The reason I ask is because that fired finish is an oxidation layer applied using heat. The thickness of said coating determines the color. Of course different metals have different properties and the matte finish of that nib would tend to "hold" the oxidative layer I would think.

 

However, the coating did not "flake off". The ink ATE IT OFF. The ink, assumedly, is acidic, and acid is what is used to remove oxide layers. As such, there was no stopping it. Acid + oxide layer = no oxide layer.

 

It's probably possible to coat the nib with something which will prevent this, at least for a decent amount of time. I don't know what that coating would be, as I haven't researched this, however I'm sure that it is possible. I would hope that with such an expensive pen this would have been done.

On my Fireblue Liliput, only the pen is fired.  The nib is regular stainless steel.  I can see where ink would eat off the coating on a fired nib.
