Mine arrived and I took pictures to share.  Since I took a number of pictures and added some comments, my post was a bit long, so I started a new thread.  You can see my post here:

Thanks for your pictures Marco. Those pens show some huge colour variations? I am going to wait and see one in person before I buy, I think.

I perfectly understand your point. If you prefer you can call my store by a whatsapp video chat, so to choose the one with the color you prefer. Our phone number is 0039 331 966 3350, available during our opening hours (Italian time).

Thank you,

Marco

Marco's latest photos show a blue pen, with hardly any green. I could go for that. Are the pens that variable in color, or are we looking at photographic artefacts?


Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

Yes, blue indeed. I didn't work on the pictures I posted, they are natural and very similar to the real color.

If you want I can send you some more pictures privately.

At long last, Dec 9th., my Ocean Swirl has been shipped by La C de C; only just arrived at the dealer, so the US sellers got theirs well in advance of the Dutch.

Then I can better understand the discussion.

I'm surprised the pens showed up in US distribution channels before the European (or maybe just the Dutch).
