    Seems like an odd name, not very descriptive but is beautiful.

    Actually, I'm fairly certain it shares the name with an interesting cocktail, a mix of Guiness Stout and champagne. If you consider the deep brown of the body, the light-cream color of the finial (and 'blind cap') and the sparkles in the dark brown acrylic, the concept isn't too far off...

    Yep, it's from their "Cocktail Series". I downed a few after losing the auction...

    VertOlive, I know this model is not as beautiful as the Professional Gear.
    But look at the material it is made with.
    Its name is Caneberge, and it is sold by Bung Box:

    I'm always (still) looking for you. I'll look next week at the LA Pen Show.

    Now that I actually own a not-knock-off Sailor, I want this one more than ever. So.

    Every time I see this thread pop up I get ready to jump for joy. I keep hope alive. In two months is the SF Pen Show and it is still on my list of "hunted pens".

    VertOlive--

    Have you tried calling Bryant Greer at Chatterleyluxuries? (520) 891-8567. I know he may not have one but with his connections in the Pen buying/selling world he might be able to track one down for you. Especially since he knows Sarj, the one man travelling pen store. Couldn't hurt after all these years of looking.

    Happy Holidays!
    All the Best.

    Just bumping this up for VertOlive. If anyone is going to the San Francisco Pen Show next week, be on the lookout for this pen! I think she is still searching for one and has called "dibs".
    "What are moon-letters?" asked the hobbit full of excitement. He loved maps, as I have told you before; and he also loved runes and letters, and cunning handwriting, though when he wrote himself it was a bit thin and spidery.

    I do that at every show now for a couple years. I'll be looking next week when I'm there.
