How much does Jules cost? Is it really as much as half of Dr. I’s collection?

No, I don’t think so! - at least not the sterling silver one; maybe he was thinking of the solid gold one?...

 

Prices for Jules

Solid Sterling Silver: MSRP $3,750

Solid 18K yellow gold: MSRP $18,000

 

Jules has genuine gemstone eyes of red rubies or blue sapphires, weighing 1.5 carats.

Nibs are available in: XF, F, M, B, or Stub

Fountain Pens and Rollerballs are the same price.

You know you're hopelessly deep into this hobby when you read the price of this pen and say to yourself, wow, that's a great price!

 

Really, if you look at some of the super high end pens like Michael Perchin and David Oscarson, then this pen is a bargain. Now if I only had a few thousand $ lying around. sad.gif

No kidding!!!! I agree completely. When I started this little trip, I would look at $200 fountain pens and attempt to comprehend why anyone would spend that much on a pen. Now, I look at my collection and rationalize by thinking that I haven't spent as much as person "X" on this website, so nope, I'm not a pen-junkie. By the way, my definition of an expensive pen (in my small world) now begins at several hundreds of dollars more. Gees!!!!

 

Where's Winedoc?, my fingers are startin' to itch again, needin' just a taste of some new ink, hold a new pen, hands startin' to shake..... hey, I don't need it, I can stop purchasing pens at any time. Yeah, that's right! tongue.gif

Hmmm, did you called? laugh.gif

 

Just ask my brother who got me into all these FP mess. He showed me a CS Churchill ebonite and a Dupont Orpheo more than 3 years ago. He told me how much he paid for them and that he got them at good deal. I said good deal my a** and whipped out my $20 kit pen from eBay (now my daughter has this pen)... well, fast forward 3 years.... OK, I am hopelss blink.gif

Dan, I'm very glad you copied your review to FPN--I think you did the pen (and its artisans) a great service. It needs to be displayed!

 

And... I'm quite jealous. I am amazed at that wondeful work of art. I wish I could own one... perhaps in the distant future. Certainly, these will survive well past our lifetimes. wink.gif

I have to ask that this will probably get me bounced from FPN,

 

When I stated in the "another" discussion that I thought "Jules" would be difficult to use because his little eyes would get in the way of my grip, a photo was posted by the manufacturer and they stated that the "eyes" were 90 degrees out of alignment from the nib, so they would not interfer.

 

But the "Review" that started this all out has a photos that shows the "eyes" are inline with the nib.

 

Does the nib rotate like a Parker 75?

:) I can make it anyway you like. I prefer it as in the following photo.

Glenn,

 

When my photo was originally made, I was playing with different settings for the nib, so you are right about how the nib was set in those photos, of course. Since then I've settled on the nib position show in Jeff's photo above and I do prefer that, although I cannot say that the other position bothered me.

 

The nib does not rotate by design like the 75 did, but the nib unit can be set into the section at the angle desired.

 

I'm taking a break from writing a letter to Australia alternating between a MB 20 Safety and Jules (or Squidwort, as he's known around this house!). Fun, especially on the ultra-thin Crane's airmail paper!
