    I certainly concur in your search for this pen. Lovely combination on a pen architecture I really love. Good luck!

    Gah I want this one too. I've had no luck finding it, sadly. If you find one please do a full review so we may drool from afar!

    I just looked on engeika and they seem to have them for sale. You might also try amazon japan. They seem to have fountain pens you don't normally see here.
    My Pinterest Feel free to add me on Facebook as well.

    Thanks Quantum. I've contacted Engeika and they don't have it. The picture is up on the site Specifically To Torment Me.

    I had ordered mine directly from nibs-dot-com, but this was a while back, when you were still seeing them on Engeika.

    Alas, no. I hope you do find one. A far while back, someone was selling a PGBV on the other forum, but I looked, and couldn't find it.

    I haven't found one either. I don't think there's a retailer in the world with one still in stock so it's resale at this point and apparently everyone loves theirs and won't resell.

    Shame on you, VertOlive. I didn't know this pen existed, and now... here I am, like a crazy, looking for one, too lol.

    Joke aside. Thank you for this discovery.

    There's always the similar although less flashy Marble Ebonite. Beware: sticker shock, although less than the rhodium trimmed Marble Ebonite on eBay.

    Engeika says "low stock" - http://www.engeika.com/product/902

    I never heard of this site - I really like their prices on Iroshizuku.
