Hi fountain pen friends !

Just wanted to let you know the special edition of the "AntwerPPen" is now available for sale on line.

These pens are exclusively available in two well known fountain penshops in Antwerp.

Both the Regular and the Kingsize versions are offered, alternatively completely in the brilliant red composite material or equipped with a demonstrator barrel.

The Giraffe version is also available, although only with a demonstrator barrel.

Below the link to the "AntwerPPen" site, hope you like it !

You can find all contact information of the 2 shops which are exclusively selling the pens on this site

Best regards,

Francis

I will get one if they are still available next month. I love the solid Red regular version, But also have to add in the cost of a another Titanium nib.

Hi frogbaby,

The "AntwerPPen" Bulkfiller range is not a  numbered "Limited Edition"

Instead it is a non numbered "Special Edition", which could get part of the regular line-up in the future.

Best regards,

Francis

Thank you Francis - but are numbers of this pen limited at the moment? I am interested in getting one but would like to visit the shop in Antwerp during a trip to see my brother, who lives in Leuven. I probably can't do that until next March - is this pen likely to still be available then? I can imagine it will sell well ....

Do post pictures please. Really want to see how the material looks in non-white background pics and does it have any depth or not.

Hello bbs,

I not aware of the exact number of pens, but as far as I remember Conid made 50 pens in in each of the "full red" versions - Regular and Kingsize - and 20 of each in the "demonstrator" barrel versions , being the Regular, Kingsize en Giraffe

Regards,

Francis

I've been told that the Regular size cannot come with a titanium nib, is that correct? Real shame if so.

How easy is it to swap nibs on this pen - are they screw in?

Thanks ....

Hi bbs,

Yes , nibs versions on the S.E versions are standardized, so the shops can't offer alternative nib versions

The screw-in nib units are however easily swapped, so one can always order any complementary nib directly from Conid.

Regards,

Francis

My Pen shipped this morning and I should have it Monday evening. I also placed an order with Conid for a Titanium Broad stub nib. The nib should ship by the end of the month.
