Maybe A Unicorn


Recommended Posts

So I watched this pen for a week and (with a last-minute bid) I won it: a BCHR ringtop with what looks an awful lot like the seldom-seen Artist's Nib - a #2 with awfully long tines, and what looks in the pictures a lot of flex. If it's not, it's probably as close as I'm gonna get to one without getting Mr. Trump to adopt me.


A little bashed-up, but if it's fixable it'll make an AMAZING pen.


What do you think? Artist's or just long?

I don't know what to call it officially.... But that is a great nib. Look at those tines spread with the finger tip! - and not by using a fingernail or pressing it against the desk.


That is one you can put in any pen if you don't like the pen it comes with. Enjoy! and do show some writing samples when you can.

It's - astonishingly - a ringtop, which is my focus as a writer and collector. It needs the services of a nibmeister, so it may be some time before I can present a writing sample.


Stay tuned.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
