Bexley Imperial In Purple Haze



Recommended Posts

I bought this off ebay a couple of weeks ago. It is a limited color run of this pen in this material. It is an acrylic material in cream with purple pearl swirls in it. It is very interesting and I really like it. I put in what I thought was a very low bid and never actually expected to win it, but I am very glad I did. It is a large pen, but feels great and writes beautifully.

Has anyone else seen other pens in this material? It is very different. My husband said it looks like a Picasso painting and now I seem to be thinking of him whenever I write with it.

I can also see the Picasso in it, it's very handsome though I can't help you with similar pens. May I request a picture of it next to a Lamy Safari or other common pen for a size reference? I am thinking of picking one up to go with my Poseidon Magnum II.

 

Thanks,

 

Venator.

Ted A, thank you for the link. It certainly looks like the same material.

 

Here is a comparison, for size, of the Bexley next to a Lamy All-Star.

Great looking pen! I am especially fond of Bexley's nibs. Congratulations!

Much appreciated, thank you. A good size, I will pick one up in a week if they are still available.

Do Bexley nibs differ from other JoWo nibs? I had assumed that they would be factory standard and identical to any other JoWo nib.

Mr. Levy has also sold Poseidon Magnum Prototypes in this material

The Bexley Imperial is in a MassDrop today---there are five color options, including a limited 15 units in the Purple Haze:

 

https://www.massdrop.com/buy/bexley-imperial-custom?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_term=Community%20-%20Writing%20-%20MAU%20%28Active%29&utm_campaign=Writing%20A%20Product%20Announcement%2007-24-15&mode=guest_open&referer=8DRCZ3

 

Price is at $149.99 right now, but if they hit the 75 units mark, it drops to $129.99.

Why are there fourteen samples of dark plum ink on my desk? Because I still haven't found the right shade.

Is that a problem...??? : : : sigh : : :

 

Update: Great. Finally found one I love (Lamy Dark Lilac) but I can't get more. Ah, life in my inky world....

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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.
