Some time ago I asked Mr.S about the possibility of a pen that can use Nikko G nibs. I don't want to muddy the waters here but perhaps that could be a follow up pen, if people are interested.

HI,

This has been done already. I got Mr.Kandan, of Ranga pens to make a couple for me.

Hi--

 

Please count me in as well. Black Ebonite, Extra Fine nib if possible.......

"Writing is 1/3 nib width & flex, 1/3 paper and 1/3 ink. In that order."Bo Bo Olson

"No one needs to rotate a pen while using an oblique, in fact, that's against the whole concept of an oblique, which is to give you shading without any special effort."Professor Propas, 24 December 2010

 

"IMHO, the only advantage of the 149 is increased girth if needed, increased gold if wanted and increased prestige if perceived. I have three, but hardly ever use them. After all, they hold the same amount of ink as a 146."FredRydr, 12 March 2015

Thats still quite an addiction

I put my savings to test

Lamy & Pilot FPs the Best

No more I even think of the rest

(Preference Fine and Extra Fine Nibs)

Pen is meant for writing - not for looking :-)

Hi,

I'm interested in 2 hooded pens. Ebonite option would be great in a lamy 2000 style. Good old Parker 51 style in acrylic would be great as well (maybe a bit more substantial in hand). Not really crazy about demonstrator type pens, but would take it if that is the only option available.

Regards

Vikram.

So we have now 26 customers and with 33 pens...

 

Okay, I decided, even though I want that pen, I decided to withdraw my name from the list.

Thanks for understanding

A Lamy2000-ish design, but options for different colors (solid ebonite colors, not the ripple ones) and a demonstrator model (not completely clear demonstrator - something like ASA Galactic, but with the same design/feel aesthetics like Lamy 2000). Have been salivating from the time this thought has entered my mind. My count would definitely go up if such option were being considered.

-Vikram.
