Bryant had the guts to fulfill a dream many of us have.I tip my hat to his curage as this is a big step and a large expense
He comissioned Bexley to make 24 pens and put them on sale.



But lets face it its great to admire someone on his bravery but when we spend over 200$ on a pen you want to get a product that is worth it so how did I like the Romulus ?

First I love the shape of the pen,it has a long cap and a long section which lead to a very comfortable pen.The pen is made of resin so it is a light weight pen which I like.I dont mind if a pen is medium weight but my rule of thumb is the lighter the better.The overall quality of the pen is excellent and I loved the feeling of the resin in my hand.



It is a full size pen even though I wouldnt call it an oversize pen.
It has a modern look to it but not overly modern.In my eyes kind of a combination of classic and new.
The white trim is very lovely and goes very well with the very attractive blue resin.
The nib is a two tone gold nib and is what you would call a typical Bexley nib and thats a good thing as it is my experiance Bexley nibs are attractive and very smooth.
So after saying that I was not surprised to see this one was no exception,the nib was very smooth and the flow on it was nice and wet.



The filling mechanism is C/C,the pen comes of course with a converter and what can I say this is a very reliable filling mechanism and works great (I would love to see a piston in your next pen Bryant wink.gif ).

Summery

Where can you get a Limited Edition pen that cost so little ?
I think this pen LE or not LE is a great pen.I enjoye using it and think its a pen you can enjoy for many years.



Cant wait to see what you will come up with next Bryant.

Thank you very much Goodguy!
That's a very nice review... I enjoyed doing this and hope to do it again soon... Hopefully in Celluloid thumbup.gif or with your favorite Ebonite! Bexley did a great job with it!
Thanks again!

Great review. I think it is a great pen. It is my first stub nib and I love the way it writes.
