I have two Viceroys in my collection: the Victorian finish and this Barley finish. Both pens are made out of solid Sterling silver and have wonderfully smooth nibs that are a joy to use. This finish is a little bit more subdued than the Victorian, but both are wonderful pens.
A whole new filling system available from the Edison Pen Company! I had the pleasure of catching up with Brian and Andrea Gray at the 2017 DC Pen Supershow and Brian lent me this clear Menlo with their new Draw Filler. At 2.0 millilitres of ink, it has a solid ink capacity, and it’s a fun system to use. Please note that the mechanism is black anodized aluminum, not plastic (I was a bit unclear in the video).
Let’s have a look at the OMAS Paragon in the beautiful Arco Bronze celluloid. I love this pen: it has a very smooth 18k gold nib, and it holds a lot of ink. The fine nib is very smooth and an absolute pleasure to use, and the pen has a great size. The Arco celluloid is hard not to love. I have done a full review of this pen too, if you’re interested.
The Classic Pens LM1 Flame Red is a large pen, but it is smaller than the Classic Pens LB5 made from the same diffusion-bonded acrylic, and it was limited to 500 pens (375 fountain pens and 125 roller balls). I love this pen, and I believe it is a great pen for everyday carry. I have not yet done a full review on the Classic Pens LM1, but I will record one as soon as I have time.
