    There are a few reviews of them over at the FPN...the ebonite models have always intrigued me. http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/fo...-blue-ebonite/

    I just hope the name doesn't become the next Shaeffer, Shaefer, or Shay-phur (whatever).

    I have the green ebonite version in Fine. I never post, the cap has ebonite threads just do not wish to mar the barrel. Find the weight to be excellent for long writing sessions.
    Lightweight, smooth nib not too wet. Only downside for some is a captive converter it is not a piston filler, to me does not matter, it works even if left 4 days between pickups.

    The metal version is simple clean, the nib bi-colour came off after a few years (Waterman,Diamine and Graf von Graf inks). Snap cap, converter.
    Nib is not too wet very smooth to paper.

    Wish this were easier to find in Canada, the ebonite version was ordered from Swishers years ago, now Cult pens is the place I know to order from.


    These are hard to find

    This a captive converter or a piston filler? Anyone can confirm? The knob seemed like a converter to me as well, but the shopkeeper assured me it was a piston filler.
