    Default What Pens(s) Are You Waiting For?

    I have had a crazy week. I have ordered an Edison Pearlette, a Platinum Plasir and the Gate City Dunn from Richard Binder. I am going crazy waiting for the mail person. Anybody else waiting for a pen or pens?

    - Tombow Object with an M nib (I like the weight)
    - Kaweco Sport Classic with an BB nib (as an alternative to my Kaweco with an EF nib) -> just arrived. The feed has problems keeping up with the BB nib. Need to adjust the feed...

    p.s.: The Kaweco did not come in the normal cardboard box (like my first two Kawecos), but in a nicer plastic case (that fits two pens):

    I don't currently have any pens en route via mail-type outfits. However, will be several pens sporting my name at the LA Pen Show next weekend - and I'm going crazy waiting for it to start!

    The Tombow Object M nib in pink arrived. It is one of the new versions (= grip section is made out of plastic). I prefer the much heavier older version, so I just switched the nib with my older black version of the pen - luckily the feed is friction-fit. Nice wet smooth writer (and fairly cheap).


    Now I am waiting for my Tombow Egg rollerball pen (in white / bright blue). Should arrive on Monday.

    My Edison Pearlette arrived and it is a stunner! It has immediately gone to pride of place in my rotation. It writes perfectly, is very well balanced in my hand with or without posting. The blue-black swirl I ordered is subtle giving the pen a classic black look at first glance, but changing as one gets closer. I also have an Edison Herald which I love, but its paisley swirl and longer length is less conducive to my pocket. So the Pearlete is first out of my pocked, the Herald first out of my case. One wait down, two to go.

    I'm waiting for an Esterbrook dip-less pen set, a Noodler's flex, and a Noodler's Ahab (plus some ink!).

    I'm waiting for a Pelikan M600 in honey tortoise with a BB nib. I can hardly contain myself.

    Just ordered a Visconti Homo Sapiens Steel Age full size B nib. Almost ordered the oversize, and realized I still need beer money! STOKED!

    Hoping for a TWSBI 540 clear when they become available again!
    Would be the first pen for me in a while and I am really anxious to get my hands on one.

    So now its two down and one to go. The Platinum Plasir has not arrived. But who cares when I've got a New Dunn. What a spectacular pen! The service and care of Richard and Barbara Binder really shows, and it fills with a button sort of contraption that is fairly unique and, most importantly, writes like a dream.

    Okay, I am a little ashamed. I am drumming my fingers for the arrival of my new Droid today. I am hopelessly addicted to my portable technology BUT I did order a Bamboo pen from Wacom. It has the touch screen end so you can avoid fingerprints all over everything, and is a pen the other way. Barely counts here, but maybe just a teeny bit? That arrives today, too. In bright green, of course.

    No sooner had all of the pens previously ordered arrived did I set out to have more stuff to wait for. today I scored two items off ebay. First a 48 pen leather case which I am now waiting for and then a Reform 1745 (new!) that I am waiting for. both come from outside the US, so the wait will be substantial.

    At the moment I'm not waiting for any pens, but I was waiting for my Penvelope 6 and it arrived just this afternoon! A very nice piece of leatherware in Boot-Brown. Thanks for pointing these out, Mr Smith!
    Together with my trusty old Lamy 4-pen water buffalo case this will nicely cater for all my inked pens...for the time being.

    I have been wanting one for a while and now that the price went down by half, I ordered a Schrade Tactical Fountain Pen. The all black metal pen goes with my cape. :P

    I just saw some over on Amazon yesterday and they were direct from TWSBI and I think the shipping
    charge was FREE. Good luck over there. Manny D.
