So let's say that I'm an ignorant fountain pen user and don't know what a "fine reverse oblique" nib is.... How would you explain it? Is it like a fude nib or something?

Part way down - Oblique Nibs. I was referring to the Right-footed oblique

yes I have a feeling the nib won't be that good, but I hope to be surprised.

I've actually been pleasantly surprised.  I've got 8 PenBBS pens now and 7 came with excellent nibs.  The 8th wrote but was too dry for my tastes, which is a relatively easy fix.

If you have some time on your hands to take a picture of them, I'd love to let my eyes feast on those acrylics..  ;)

You are going to have to get a 267. Of my three PenBBSs, it is my favourite for extended periods of writing.

That is a lovely collection!  

 

I am waiting for a clear 308 and that light blue/white 309 that's 5th to the right in that picture.  Can't wait.

That's the 323.  The blue swirly one was supposed to have a lot more purple in the material, but I actually like it better as it is.

Thanks, I've been interested trying a pen with that body shape, I might have to pick one up.

I can't speak for all the colours, but when I asked the Etsy seller regarding the colour third from the left - berries, or meimei - she said it will be back in stock in a few months. I'm guessing that these pens aren't limited editions or anything, but rather produced in really small batches.

At least a few of the colour combinations seem to be coming back, though at higher prices than the first runs (not surprising)
