Hi all,

Happy new year to all of you !
Complementary to the acrylic green/black/ brownish mosaic pen I’ve posted on a few months ago:
This pen is the bleu/black/brownish mosaic version.
Personally I’m more in favor of this bleu/black/brownish mosaic material, being less " busy /flashy” in my opinion
What do you think?
Best regards,
Francis

You don't want to show it to us? Best would be both together.

mke: this one. I can't say either really does much for me, Francis. I do like those gold cap rings though!

If forced to choose, I'd prefer the blue one - but both are very nice.

Beautiful pen, and what a nib!

It looks magnificent. Nothing like starting the new year full of envy.

So, how big is your personal prototype collection?  Can you post a few pictures? :puddle:

That's a really good looking pen, even though I like sections in the same colour as the rest.

Very nice. But I'm still curious about the Japanese ebonite that you showed us a while ago. Any word on a Conid production run of those?  :)


I like to write or make short videos about my fountain pens such as the Conid Bulkfiller or Pilot Urushi 845 BB:

Very nice pen; I agree that the Green Mosaic looks a bit more "informal" than this Blue Mosaic.

 

Francis, It would be great to get a list "known/tried" vintage nibs that would work Kingsize pens. Perhaps, such a compilation already exists somewhere?

I much prefer this color scheme to the previous mosaic.

I've seen pictures of some of your personal collection and it's incredible. Some day you'll hold the greatest of all yard sales and I hope I'm there to enjoy it.

I prefer the green mosaic to the blue, but neither is among my favorites of your teasers prototypes.

 

And Happy New Year, Francis!

I prefer this blue mosaic to the green, this seems more soothing to the eye.
