The Classic Fountain Pens newsletter is published monthly. We bring you the latest news on what's up here at nibs.com--new pens in stock, the latest arrivals in pre-owned pens and accessories, and information on special deals.
Not previously offered in the United States, the OMAS Ogiva Vision Evergreen with Rose Gold trim is available exclusively from us here at Classic Fountain Pens. Just a very small number of these piston-fillers remain in stock, after which no more will be available - if this turns out to be the final Ogiva release, it seems a fitting and evocative send-off for a model that has been part of the OMAS brand for over eighty years. Provided with your choice of 18k nib in Fine, Medium, or Broad, or 14k nib in Medium Flessible. Retail $695, our price $559.
Pelikan M205 Blue Demonstrator
Being made available in limited numbers for the first time in five years, the Pelikan M205 Blue Demonstrator Special Edition fountain pen features translucent blue resin and chromium trim. Normally provided only with a steel nib, we are offering this pen with your choice of 14k solid gold nib unit in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, or Broad. Retail price for the M205 Blue Demonstrator with 14k nib is $430, our price $349. It is now available for pre-order - you will not be charged until your pen arrives here and is ready to ship to you.
Aurora Optima 365 Abissi Limited Edition
Aurora's Optima 365 Limited Editions always sell out quickly, and this year's offering, the Optima 365 Abissi, is sure to be no exception. A study in green and black accented with dark blue flecks, this handsome piston-filler is being made available in just 366 numbered pieces worldwide to commemorate 2016 as a leap year. It is available with your choice of 18k solid gold nib in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, stock Stub, or stock Italic. Many retailers will be selling this pen at the full retail price of $795, but we are offering the 365 Abissi at a special introductory sale price of $636.
Pelikan M805 Vibrant Blue Arriving This Month
While recent Pelikan Special Editions such as the Burnt Orange and Grand Place have already proved exceptionally popular, perhaps the most eagerly anticipated Pelikan yet is the new M805 Vibrant Blue, scheduled to arrive later this month. Featuring bright palladium trim over iridescent marble blue, the Vibrant Blue will be made available with your choice of 18k solid gold rhodium-plated nib unit in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, or Broad. Now available for pre-order, this pen will retail for $875, with our sale price $699 - you will not be charged until your pen arrives here and is ready to ship to you!
Cross Peerless 125 Special Collection City Series
Just arrived, the new Cross Peerless 125 Special Collection City Series pays homage to iconic buildings in three of the world's greatest cities - London, New York City, and Tokyo. Featuring gold, platinum, or PVD plating over metal bodies and with 18k solid gold nibs created specially for Cross by Sailor, each pen is available in your choice of Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, or Zoom. Our price is $625.
