Dearest Members of the Board,
It's already a few months since we sold out all of our FPN LE Pens. Since we had quite a few requests for a few more, we checked with Stipula whether that was possible, maybe from a little spare stock material of the order we placed last year and some spare parts made at the time.
It appeared that this was possible indeed, and as a result a few pens have been added to our store!
For the quick deciders, we now have the following:
FPN LE 2012 Passaporto Chrome Trim F nib: 2 available
FPN LE 2012 Passaporto Chrome Trim M nib: 13 available
FPN LE 2012 Passaporto Chrome Trim B nib: 2 available
FPN LE 2012 Passaporto Chrome Trim BB nib: 8 available
FPN LE 2012 Passaporto Chrome Trim 0.9 Italic nib: 19 available
These pens have been manufactured, are in stock, and are ready to be shipped, from Europe.
Do note that out of necessity these pens are more expensive than the original batch, basically because it is a much smaller number that was produced. Furthermore, we won't be able to provide shipping as cheap as before either; we will ship at cost from Europe, however. There will be 2 shipping options available to you: one with and one without insurance. Do note that we won't cover losses or damages in transit if the uninsured option is selected.
For those interested, here are the original votes for the pens, and some of the discussions relating to these pens:
These are slightly different, in that the inscription contains the year 2012 rather than 2011, and a (sequential) number, but no size indication for the edition, which actually was 50 - it wasn't certain at production time how many could be made exactly.
Another difference is the different nib sizes - the above were the ones we could get.
Finally, to soften the new pricing a bit, all pens will have an additonal quality check and will have their nibs checked, adjusted if necessary, and smoothed by a nibmeister prior to being sent off, at no extra charge (a 20 euro value!).
Furthermore, if you are interested in a nib modification or regrind, your pen will be dealt with immediately, if you so like, although this will be at additional cost. Those BB nibs of course lend themselves very well for an interesting modication if one so prefers . Do contact our FPN Pens Admin if you are interested in such a modification, see further down below.
For those interested in more info on our FPN LE pens, we started a forum quite a while ago, specifically for the purpose of discussing these pens. You can find this forum by scrolling to the bottom of the board in forum view (main forums page), or by following this link:
