Bexley Identification - Please Refresh My Memory

Recommended Posts



I am the original owner of this Bexley but I didn't keep good notes and my memory, well... I wrote down at one point that it was a Model 58 but believe that I meant 56. I remember that it was an Owner's Club model but what year? 2008 or 2009?


A Google search found no images to compare - as if all Bexley history has been scrubbed. The images I did find of olive ebonite Bexleys had a pyramidal top on cap - mine is flat and reminds me of Moby Dick with the clip placed lower like the mouth of a sperm whale. Even here on FPN the older post images are no longer available.


I was really confused when I couldn't find the Bexley website which at one point had an Owner's Club/past editions section for reference. Finally I came upon the threads (posted during FPN/buying hiatus) about Bexley's sale. Sad. Will likely be a lot more of this in the future.


So I turn to the FPN knowledge base. Please tell me what I should know and I promise to make better (analog) notes.

It's a 56 model. If it was an owners club it would have engraving on the barrel starting it was an owners club and the year.


2009 is a different model with a cap band. I can't recall 2008 now. Will look more.

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

There are no markings on the barrel - none. The only thing identifying it as Bexley is the nib.

2008 came in gold plated and silver sleeve versions with engraving.

Probably just a regular 56 then. There were pens made for pen shows, but those had engraving on the cap or barrel too.

I remember that it came in three colors of ebonite - brown? red? and olive but when I was ready to purchase, the olive was the only one left. My second choice.

      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

      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
