Speedy,

 

Sorry, I can't read the linked page but none the less, I want one maybe 3. I don't have a preference for actual design but laser engraving sounds good to me.

 

Can't wait,

From what I understand, FPN is not going to sponsor or endorse a FPN edition pen but you could release a FPN special edition pen if you want to.

Check out my ink reviews.

 

Currently inked:

Pilot Vanishing Point - <font color=#000000> Hero Black </font color=#000000>

Hero 616 - <font color=#000000> Noodler's Blackest Black Old Manhattan </font color=#000000>

Not bothered about Special FPN edition though.

Sorry, I'm late coming to this party. This looks like it's going to be fantastic. Where do I get in line for one of these?

cheers

Anyone else here think that Speedy designed his pen to match his computer? I have the same computer. I can't wait to try one of his pens. With Skyppere now interested in one I do believe that the Diamond 530 is on its way to becoming the Almost Official Fountain Pen of the Northern New Mexico Chapter of the Fountain Pen Network's Collectors Collective. If we load our pens with green ink maybe we'll call our pens the Chilé Verde, and if we load them with red ink we'll probably call them the Chilé Rojo. There's even a chance that we'll petition the Governor to adopt the Diamond 530 as our official state pen. Hey, you never know, if our state can have an official cookie, the biscochito, and a motto, "Carpé Manana," then we could have a state pen.

I don't mean to have FPN sponsor or endorse the pen, after all I am the one responsible for the final quality of the product, just that some people mentioned this option maybe the a good as a memory... So I have to double check if we really want to do this.

Understand that I can by my own wish to release a FPN special edition. But due to my poor English, I would appreciate someone can give me a suggestion what to write.

I wish I have this capability, everyone is trying to catch up the apple trend.

Anyhow, I always admire apple's courage on innovation, and value adding design.

The Aluminium piston looks great!

 

For engraving, I wouldn't have anything other than either FPN or in full "Fountain Pen Network". Maybe add "Special Edition" or "Limited Edition" (if it is actually limited in number).

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now.

      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
