    Default PIF: Sailor HighAce Neo and Ink

    Hi all,

    I have a practically unused Sailor HighAce Neo blue fountain pen that I'd like to give to someone who is just starting out and who would like to experience the razor sharp joy of a Japanese fine nib. I ran one cartridge through the pen, and then washed it and put it into my pen case. I have so many pens that it has never made it back out of the case, so I figured I'd give it to someone who would use it. In addition, I'll throw in 11 cartridges of Sailor Sei-Boku Blue Black ink (I used one of them...sorry). This is Sailor's awesome pigmented blue-black ink, and its a real joy to use. I'd like to see this go so someone who is relatively new to the board and fountain pens, so you'll need to have a join date prior to today (May 22 or earlier) and less than 30 posts on the board. And none of those posts better be about your MontBlanc pen, or you're out! :P If you are interested, either post here or PM me. I'll collect names until midnight MDT on Monday, May 26, and randomly draw a winner on Tuesday morning. CONUS only please; postage is just too expensive to ship any farther than that. Thanks for looking.

    That is a gorgeous pen. Love the simplicity. I've heard some great things about sailor.

    That's a very nice PIF. I don't qualify but that doesn't stop me coveting that pen. I'm a sucker for a blue/chrome combination and Sei-Boku Blue Black is a great ink.

    I am a newbie to both this forum and fountain pens and would love to be able to add this to my (tiny, two pen) collection, if you would be willing to ship to the uk!

    I feel really bad about not extending the PIF outside the United States, but postage is just soooo expensive from the US and customs duties end up making it not worth it for either of us...sorry all outside the US. I'm also not getting a lot of names, so I may up the post count a little...say less than 60? The MontBlanc ban still applies, though!

    Very generous of you mtnbiker62! And don't feel bad about limiting your gift to the continental US; I would have to do the same thing and limit any PIF I might do to Canada. Postal rates are killing us too. Best of luck to all who participate!

    I may be able to offer a similar pen for a European PIF?

    I didn't have a whole lot of interest but I did have enough to make it necessary to draw numbers out of a hat. And the winner is: RayCornett. I have notified them by PM. Thanks for playing, y'all!
