Bexley Corona Blueberry Cream



Recommended Posts

I just put in an order for a Bexley Corona Blueberry Cream with factory nib (medium). Does anybody have a sample of how it writes? Any feedback about this pen? How does it compare to the Bexley Poseidon Magnum II? Thank you.

I purchased one about a year and a half ago, after having purchased one in the Summer Storm color the year before. They are great pens which hold a very good amount of ink (both mine are piston fillers), have smooth pistons and write every time I pick them up. Both have been continually inked since I got them. Mine have wet fine Jo Wo nibs which were tuned by Richard Binder. I think you will like the pen very much. Additionally, spare screw in nib units are $35.00 ($25.00 c/c style) from richardspens.com or indy-pen-dance.com. If you buy a spare one, which I would suggest, I recommend you get it from either of these sellers. As to a comparison with the Poseidon Magnum II pen you might look at Richards site and click on the "Compare Our New Pens Side by Side" section. The nibs tend to write as "western" widths so a bit on the wider side than Japanese sizes. Here is a handy guide:

Thank you for the feedback, i will keep those two sites in mind. I really am planning to buy extra nibs. How do you rate the default gold-plated steel nibs on them, though? are they kinda springy? smooth with a touch of feedback?

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to

      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
