The Montegrappa Blazer is a new member of the Fortuna family. A steel pen, treated with fire, to give it a unique and colorful look.
We enjoy it and recorded a short video.

Thank you for introducing this pen to me; I had seen it mentioned previously from some US Sellers but none had made it "come to life," as you have. I heartily appreciate the treatment Montegrappa had bestowed on this pen & appreciate your mentioning it's first use by Kaweco, in their Liliput model.

 

I have followed the popularity of the "fire treated" Lilput pen & recently decided to order one in copper instead of the fire treated finish. I have a soft spot for the Kaweco Sports & decided I had waited long enough for them to offer a copper version, so best to see it in the Liliput size. I think the size of this Montegrappa pen would easily show the finish of the fire treatment, since I have the copper Liliput to compare.

 

I think you have shown us a very handsome pen & I appreciate the opportunity to see it "in your hand."

Thank you. The Liliput Copper is a wonderful pen, the extra weight is very welcome to in a pen that size.

Thanks for putting up the video, it is really nice and I like the size of the Fortuna and it makes the fire treatment really stand out. I'm just not sure if its worth the high price tag for a steel nib.

      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
    • Daneaxe
      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
