    Will do, Will. I get the Santini newsletter, and today the company announced a new Nonagon model, the Abissi - - very interesting color:

    I also note that the Santini website appears to have been upgraded somewhat. The "Gold Nibs" link includes some useful information on tipping sizes, which appear to run a tad broader that I would have suspected - good to know if you're contemplating ordering.

    I promised myself that I would not buy any more pens during the rest of 2020. Then I saw the Leonardo Officina Italiana Momento Zero (quite a mouthful)... in purple ebonite! Of course I caved in.

    Update on the Santini Libra: ordered on Sun. July 5th; confirmation pen has been produced/boxed Mon. July 13th; received confirmation today of shipment via UPS - ETA is Thurs. July 16th. I must say that so far I'm impressed with Santini's speed in filling orders and excellent communication.

    Wow, Robert, very excited for you and that purchase. I look forward to your writing impressions. The Leonardo's have been on my radar a lot lately. So, these Santini's equate to the same verve, with potentially even greater quality. The Libra Ebonite collection looks superb.

    Meanwhile, I await a boring black and rhodium Sailor 1911L in F, for note taking and journaling. Sigh......

    Those are very pretty pens so caving in is to be expected lol

    Another update on the Santini Libra. The pen arrived July 16th - just as promised by Santini. The packaging was incredible - black tissue wrapping a 1.3 pound (!) outer wooden box, and within the pen cosseted in a faux soft leather pouch. The ebonite pen was as lovely as I expected . . . but the 18k gold nib didn't write as I had hoped - frequent hard starts and skips with a dry ink flow. So off the pen went to Mike Masuyama, who is my preferred nib meister, for adjustment and grind to a smooth stub. I had planned to send the pen to Mike eventually for nib modification, so this is a case of sooner rather than later.

    I will let you know when I get the pen back from Mike and try to post some photos.

    Okay, I will check back with y'all in a few months, hopefully, with my PenBBS mega order! I couldn't decide which ones to try first, so. . .

    I've recently found a couple of Parker 45's on ebay. One has a B nib and the other looks like it might have a RH Oblique. Fingers crossed that they are both OK

    Our dear member Deb had a Conway Stewart 84 that caught my attention just as things were shutting down in March. Earlier this month she and I agreed to try to ship from my native ancestoral land and her home, Scotland, to the US. It's been stuck in Chicago since 7/22.

    I'm waiting for a Pelikan 120 (a modern one), which should arrive today. I'm waiting for a Conklin crescent filler rainbow limited edition, arrival unknown (hasn't shipped yet). I'm waiting for a Conklin Endura limited edition in abalone, also arrival unknown (hasn't shipped yet). I'm waiting for a Sailor lifetime I just bought from a member here. I'm waiting for an Online and a Platignum, both purchased from ipenstore.com, both hugely marked down. I stress-buy fountain pens. Hey, at least I'm not stress-buying cars or bucket loaders!
