I wonder if they will be CC filler or touchdown?

I would bet a princely sum on C/C.

 

It will also be interesting to see how the inlaid nibs compare to the golden era pens...

Vintage. Cursive italic. Iron gall.

How does the Imperial compare with the Legacy, in quality?

Baptiste knew how to make a short job long

For love of it. And yet not waste time either.

The Imperials are lighter and a little smaller. The Legacy is a hefty unit. In terms of quality? Both are excellent pens. It will be interesting to see how the new iterations stack up.

Highly interesting. Is it really possible that they are producing new nib units, or are these some form of limited edition using old stock parts (a la Jim Rouse "Fantasy" Legacy pens)? Will follow...

I hadn't considered that. I had just assumed that Cross/Sheaffer would be building these from scratch, as it were. If they were using NOS nibs, then surely they would be restricted to limited edition status?

 

Maybe Ron Z has some insights into the volume of stockpiled inlaid nibs? :P

Given the low numbers of the origonal Legacy, I know of one person who might have enough nibs stockpiled to allow for a limited run of pens. The last I heard from him he still had the ones he got from me and added to his stockpile, which he hadn't decided on what to do with, but they were not the type shown in the posting, but were earlier ones.

I suspect from the posting these are either from a different stockpile, or are new production.

Can't really tell from the posted image -- they don't look like actual photos, but rather as artist conceptions. Note how the uncapped ones are slightly wider than the capped ones, meaning they are not to scale (and if they were to scale, the first one's nib would be poking out the end of the adjacent cap).

Appelboom has the pens listed....

 

"The fountain pen has an inlaid 18 kt gold or palladium plated Fine or Medium nib and uses a cartridge/converter filling system."

 

There's full description on the website...including price....

Welp, I have been following this thread ever since it came out. Honestly I cannot say if I like this one or not: despite being a fan of simpler pens, rendered images are always deceptive, and I'd rather see the real thing first.

That price tho... Out of my budget!

Price a little above what I expected to see, but not suprised. Should be nice solid pens, but I'll likely pass.

Appelboom’s email says: “The rumor is that the characteristic inlaid nib is made by Sailor in Japan, but this is not confirmed yet.”

I chose my user name years ago - I have no links to BBS pens (other than owning one!)

I think they look great regardless of whether it's C/C or whatever. I thought Sheaffer discontinued the legacy but I am glad they're bringing it back.

That was Sheaffer, this is Cross, who I believe are the new owners of the brand.

Unfortunately, the stub nib is not an option. I love my Legacy pens, they are my favorites.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Create a Ghostly Avatar and I'll send you a letter. Check out some Ink comparisons: The Great PPS Comparison 

Don't know where to start?  Look at the Inky Topics O'day.  Then, see inks sorted by color: Blue Purple Brown Red Green Dark Green Orange Black Pinks Yellows Blue-Blacks Grey/Gray UVInks Turquoise/Teal MURKY

The Legacy is coming back?!

 

Are they being manufactured as I type this post?

 

(Sorry for the confusion...)
