dms525 posted a topic in Fountain Pen ReviewsI purchased this pen from Regina Martini because of the beautiful celluloid material, her assertion that it was a Stipula product and the availability of a Stipula 1.1 mm italic nib for it. I began looking for documentation of this pen's provenance after I had committed to the purchase. I was able to find quite a bit, but some facts remain unsettled. As best I can determine, Mercury was a luxury goods manufacturer and retailer established in Belgium in 1948. In 2002, the company was sold by the descendants of the founder. It was still in business in 2007, when my pen was produced, but appears
Introduction This is a review of the Desiderata Mercury flex pen. After seeing a couple of photos on FPN about a year ago, I knew I’d be getting one someday. When I saw that only one or two pieces were available on the website and no new products were in the works, I decided now was the time. After just a few days with the pen, I am really happy with it.

My other pens are a Lamy 2000 EF/F, a Conklin Crescent-Filler 25 and a soon-to-arrive (hopefully) Sheaffer Balance .40 stub.
A review Is soon to come from me for this beautiful Desiderata Mercury Pen that just arrived. In my opinion first impressions are always most important. So here is my first impression on the pen. The pen arrived and it was boxed in the lovely post office small flat rate box. Nothing special, just something to get it to me safely in. Inside was some wadded up brown paper. One of those wads of paper was rolled up in a tube like shape. "That has to be the pen." I thought to myself. Next I noticed a very long user manual. I dislike user manuals. In general they seldom come in handy. This one
