Thank you for the review. Even more, for having the thoughtfulness to use the Boheme to write it! I enjoyed seeing the results of the Boheme as much as the evaluation.
I too thought that most of the Boheme FPs in gold trim had jewels. I posted an inquiry into this matter yesterday on the forum.
Actually, I have a Boheme gold (no jewel) pencil and ballpoint and hope to round out the set with a FP whenever one becomes available. I will be in your debt if you should ever decide to switch to a jeweled Boheme FP and sell this model, and you decide to drop me a message regarding the current model (and its potential availabilty). I am new to this forum, but am quite avid in my enjoyment of MB (my primary pen is a 149 I've used since '96).
Anyway, enough about me, suffice it to say, thank you for the review. I enjoyed it. And should you decide to part with the gold trim--I'm sure we can quickly reach an agreement. And I would like knowing you someday find the one with the jewel of your taste (am I correct in thinking that a ruby accompanies the gold trim FP; platinum comes w/ onyx, emerald, or sapphire?).
Thank you very much, Mike! My Boheme actually has the platinum trim (the trick of the lighting), so it will not go with the rest of your set - sorry! However, if you're still interested, I will contact you if I ever decide to get one with the jewel. Like you, I couldn't find one without the jewel anywhere on the internet but QM2 wrote that they are an option if one does not fancy the "Bling!" factor.
I think you are correct in the jewel/trim combo. However, I will defer to the more experienced MB users on this forum. The MBs are very lovely pens to write with.
Take care and enjoy being a part of FPN!
