This is some of the best entertainment ever created for fountain pen addicts. I really like the new transparent smokey grey prototype. I don't know about you guys but Speedy sure has made fountain pens more fun for me, and just look at Lloyd he's absolutely enraptured with this new pen.

I don't know if it's been mentioned earlier in this thread but whoever is taking the photos is doing a fantastic job.

I think it may be Speedy himself, he's an excellent photographer. He makes his pens look like candy doesn't he?

If you are as perfectionistic about your pens' performances as you are about your photography, those pens are going to write astoundingly. I can't wait to try one.

I do believe Speedy is. He's come all the way here to the FPN to get our input and reactions during the design and prototyping process of a large scale production pen. I can think of only one other pen maker with this level of customer interaction and service and he does the same thing but a one on one basis, Brian Gray of Edison Pen Company. I think the FPN, Brian Gray and Speedy are the three best entertainments in fountain pens today.

Well, on important matters, I have to make the result as perfect as I can; this is at leaset an reponsible attitude to my customer.

 

But on minor things in daily life, I can not ask for perfection on everything, otherwise life will be to tough to get through.

Your logo on the top of the pen is interesting. Is it meant to represent something?

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
