I wanted this pen for a long time.
Stunned by it’s simple beauty and clear drenched color, I waited for over a year.
I was not seduced by other pens in similar colors…
Then when it became available, I could not afford it and they were going fast!!
You have to know that I had bugged the brothers once a month,
Pleading, “When oh when will you make this pen!?”
They KNOW me…
Well, the brothers at Birmingham did the nicest thing:
They found a way to make it happen for me.
Pen people are special…
They understand the longing for color and shape and
they are also just nice folks.
I have several inks that will be perfect for this pen;
I confess to making a page of potential inks that might be perfect!
I wanted clear color, drenched color, and an ink that was not too dry.
I started with Diamine Claret because it is such a beautiful and well-behaved ink.
The pen writes beautifully, as I knew it would!
I imagine that over the years it will also be filled with Robert Oster Hot Pink
(in a different pen right now) and Birmingham Gerbera ink, both good matches!
Thank you Nick and Josh!
