Ooh, those are nice. I've been wanting to pick up a Stipula and would probably jump on one of those. Those blue celluloid (mmm, celluloid) Etrurias are pretty sharp, but all of them look good.

There will be a poll up soon enough, to determine which pens we should order. By that time we will have a good idea of the pricing as well.

 

Currently it looks like a range from approximately € 56 to € 460 from cheapest (Passaporto, Chrome trim) to most expensive (PF Celluloid Etruria with 18K nib and vermeil trim), with the Model T somewhere in the middle ranges. That is including VAT at 20 %. In the US they would probably cost approximately $66 to $ 530, excluding any sales tax or import duties. And all of this is without shipping costs - add approximately € 10 for Europe, and $ 14 for the US.

 

This for a minimum of 100 of each. If we get a lot of interest, it may get a little cheaper.

 

Don't hold us to these prices, however, we don't know yet whether we have taken all costs into account.

 

Warm regards, Wim

They do look wonderful and I'd love to have one. Obviously, the more expensive they are the fewer people could afford one, and so if we're only going to have one, I suggest we keep it under $100. I can't wait for one, hopefully within my budget.

The idea is, we hope, to go for one out of each of the ranges, so, one Passaporto, one Modello T, one Etruria, provided there is enough interest, meaning, at least 100 for a production run.

 

If that works out, there will certainly be one in your budget - the Passaporto will be well below $100, even including shipping costs :D.

The mockups look very nice, particularly for the Passaporto. Do you have any idea at this point how much choice (if any) there would be in nib widths?

I've been on a quest to see if I could commit all Seven Deadly Sins in a single day. Finally, it dawned on me I shouldn't try for the One Day Wonder Prize for all seven in one day. It's simply out of any question as you can't commit decent sloth while busily ticking the other six off your crowded "to do" list. -- ViolinWriter

Oh my god. I love the Passaporto; I don't know much about Stipula, but it looks like an eyedropper version. cloud9.gif Please say it's so.

 

 

 

In some things in life it's better to take a Zen approach. If you think too much you won't achieve your goal, wheras if you don't think and let yourself go, it shall be achieved with ease. I find this helpful in writing, kendo and music.

Hi Ada,

Yes, F and M only for the stainless steel nib, for a gold nib we need 100 confirmed orders per nib type. Considering the price, it doesn't make a lot of sense, however, to put a gold nib on a Passaporto.

 

Warm regards, Wim

Of course ti is :D. It comes with an eyedropper in the package. Either cartridge, or eyedropper :D.

Wim,

 

Many thanks for the quick reply! That is very helpful information. Now I can think about whether it would be worthwhile to me to buy a pen I would have to immediately send off for a nib regrind. (I too think it is unlikely that 100 people would want to order a gold XF nib for the Passaporto).

I think I've requested this on every thread I can find on the topic, but would like to put in my 2 cents again on having the Passaporto with threaded barrel for posting. If that can be done, you've got a winner.

Wassup wid that, homes? Looks like you're WANT to feel the hurt. -ethernautrix

That's a good one, I'll make sure we'll check that, and that that is what we will get.

I like the Modello T and the Etruria personally. The Passaporto looks a little... stubby to me. Might be nice to take in a pocket though. :thumbup:

The Passaporto is made to be carried in a small space. When posted, it is approximately the same size as an uncapped Etrurira.

What is the ordering process? When/how should one express a commitment? I'd hate to miss out on this great opportunity.
