With a lot of regret I offer this amazing pen for sale. I had Shawn Newton make me this beautiful pen with ebonite I selected, and an exquisite super-flex #2 Waterman nib I had out of an old broken BCHR Waterman 52 I had. The nib is spectacular, Fto BBB effortlessly, with beautiful return. It is not a 'wet noodle' per se, as it can write a plain fine line perfectly well, with a light hand. This is an EYEDROPPER pen. It does not post. The reason I am selling it is that it is just too wide for my very small hand. It is similar to a Pelikan M800 or Montblanc 146 in width. In addition, I find I do not care for the eyedropper fill style. Hence I have used it very little; there is essentially no wear on this pen. All I have is a phone camera so the photos are not very good, and I apologize for that.

I bought my first “real” pen nearly 20 years ago—a Montblanc 149—to celebrate my first job after I was discharged from the military. My collection has grown over the years, and I have looked at this forum for information and reviews of ink and pens. On more than one occasion, I have made decisions about what to purchase because of the posts I have read here. I am hoping this review serves as a way of paying forward my own good fortune. It was through a search on this forum for the pen that had everything I wanted in a writing instrument that I discovered Shawn Newton. To sum up the exper
I've been using this pen pretty continuously for several months now, and it deserves a review! Without Further ado...my custom pen from Newton Pens: Appearance: Shawn Newton made this pen for me, based on a (rough, rough) sketch I sent to him. I was looking for a pen that was shaped somewhat like a German pen from the 30s with a domed top, but with some aesthetic considerations from Japanese pens, thrown in with some ideas from American vintage pens - specifically, the cool bands on some of the Conklin Enduras. He hit a home run! Construction: The body is Cumberland ebonit
When I cap this Rotring Newton FP, the pen gives an audible "click." However, just slight pressure such as attempting to clip the pen to your pocket results in the cap popping off the pen. The cap stays in place when posted, so the problem is with the section, where there are two small square "pins" (can't think of a better word) which extend above the surface of the section and hold the cap in place. One of these pins seems to be less pronounced than the other, which is causing the problem in my opinion. I don't know how to get this pin to protrude more. Has anyone run into this probl
This is a review on a Newton Pens custom fountain pen. Background. When the Omas Marconi came out I purchased one because it reminded me of one of my all time favorite pens, a Sheaffer Lifetime Pen pre-white dot flat top. That pen had a huge thick manifold BB nib, gold clip and no trim whatsoever. I would still consider it one of the best everyday pens, exhibiting simplicity and elegance, were it not for its extreme rarity. Except for the frilly trim, the Omas is very similar. Its size, shape, and balance suit my hand very well. It was just too rare and expensive to risk using at work every
