Christmas Love From My Family - 3 Bexley Fountain Pens



Recommended Posts

Wife gifted the Bexley Owner's Club 2017 pen (left) in Lapis to me, while my mother in law got me the the other 2, Bexley Poseidon Magnum in Cream and Purple (middle) and the Blue Bamboo Walking Stick (right). Both in medium nib sizes, my favorite.

 

In the Lapis, I'm running Private Reserve DC Supershow Blue, thanks to an ink exchange with FPN member richofthetower.

 

The Creme and Purple is running J. Herbin Violette Pensee ink cartridge and the Blue Bamboo is running J. Herbin Vert Pre ink cartridge.

 

I also got gifted some Rhodia pads and J. Herbin ink cartridges - Vert Pre, Orange Indien, and Eclat de Saphir.

My brother sent me a vert nice custom printed stationary set with matching envelopes. Already tested it out for fountain pen friendliness and happy to report that it is very friendly. From a company called American Stationary.

 

My mom sent me some Dollar General pads that were made in indonesia. I was a little skeptical, but it turns out that the "cheap" $1 pads held up to all my currently inked pens! Going to go to the local Dollar General and see if they have any and if so, I'm buying up the whole lot.

 

Anyway, it was a great Christmas pen haul! Hope others had good luck in their holiday on the pen front!

Wonderful! I have been curious about Bexley's quality and have looked at the Walking Stick bamboos on eBay. How is the clip and trim quality? Congrats on the additions!

The clip is firm, but hs plenty of spring in it, so is very useful. I like the way that it has small upwards tilt at the end of it, making it easy for the clip to slide across the fabric of a shirt or pen case. The trim on all the Bexley's I have have always ben top quality. I've never had any plating issues, or similar things. I just cannot get enough of them, honestly and as funds allow I'll keep acquiring! :D

That white/purple is a massdrop special, is it not?

 

I did a quick massdrop search and did not see this particular pen, but I'm sure it could have been possible. I asked where she got them and I was told she talked to Howard directly and got them.

Lucky you. As a Bexley fan I'm green with envy. I have 7 Bexleys and have found their quality is exemplary. Both the Walking Stick and Poseidon are for sale on ebay direct from Howard Levy. I also use the Dollar General pads for general writing purposes. They are a really cheap solution for those purposes. They do however sometimes vary in quality from batch to batch, but generally are very good. But hey for $1 they can't be beat.

Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?" Patrick Henry

We all wonder why, but these ladies seem to like you very much. Congrats with your new toys, they look beautiful.

 

Myself, I got a Faber Castell Loom and a bottle of MB Irish Green.

      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
