dandy ebonite sneak peak

The Conway Stewart Dandy Ebonite arrived this morning. I had the luck to purchase it straight from Conway Stewart – they had a special offer on their website – even though it has been out of producion for several years. It is a very handsome, classic pen and I couldn’t believe my luck when I saw the offer. It is a part of what was called the “Ebonite Collection” which is also inscribed at its cap. More photos will come, but I couldn’t resist posting this first snap. Nib size? A beautiful Bold Italic.

    Uh… you did say you were adopting me or somethin’ and one day I’ll have those Dandies, right?

    *ahem*

    You are up to 3 lovely CS Dandies! Awesome. Is it the nib, the look or both? One hopes the nibs are divine!

    Congrats, btw. :)

      Oh, yes – I’m about to hand in the paperwork on the adoption any day now :D I know – it is a bit crazy with three dandies, but I’ve got all three as very good deals. The ebonite is simply stunning. I particularly like their medium italic nibs – real nice writers. I haven’t decided what I think about the bold italic yet – it has less line variation than the MI and since they switch nibs for a symbolic sum I might go for a switch to a MI instead.

    It’s a beautiful pen. It actually reminds me most of classic Swans.

    I love chased hard rubber pens, and I think it’s great that some companies still make them – lovely pen, as usual!

    That’s a beauty. I’m becoming more enamored of ebonite as a pen material myself.
