looking very good, and a welcomed offer of something different, particularly the nib.

Regarding ebonite colours, some of the japanese striped ebonite are among the best available, cumberland style,

deep blue/black, red/black, green/black, sand/black, etc. Many here also appreciate solid colours.

FPN has a poll system, you could probably show a choice of ebonite and ask here to point out favorites...

Take my money. These are almost the perfect size pens for me (I find Aurora's to be a very good fit in terms of section and girth), maybe a bit smaller on the Asymmetry. Would love to see one with a stopper or clip to compare although I don't mind the plain look either.

Rather nicely designed pens, less is definitely more. Very tastefully classic designs and I'm particularly liking the clean lines of the capped V8.3.

 

If you don't mind me asking, what is the reasoning, if any, behind the model nomenclature of the pens? I assume they are version numbers?

 

Thanks.

indeed, i prefer classic clean looks, practicality, and solid build that will last forever.

yes you are correct.

the first pen created was V1.0 (made of solid aluminum)

i will soon create my website explaining everything, including every version.

surely i will try poll sometime!

but soon i will make the make in all sorts of colors, including yellow!!

in addition to color ebonites, i will also introduce color urushi tamenuri, na-jeon techniques, metallic overlays, etc.

but i will need more, more time ;)

Also what are the nib tipping sizes you can offer? Pls consider offering OBB, O3B sizes, there is a serious shortage of such nibs on the market.


In case you wish to write to me, pls use ONLY email by clicking here. I do not check PMs. Thank you.
