After the success of our first custom collaboration with Bexley Pen Company last year, we let members vote on a second edition of Imperial fountain pens—this time with new resin colors. For this drop, members chose their top four colors out of eight options. Available exclusively on Massdrop, these pens will be made to order in Columbus, Ohio by Bexley, a group of vintage pen enthusiasts who have produced throwback designs using modern processes since 1993.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of body color (Blue Pearl, Bronze Pearl, Green-on-Green, Purple Haze, or Purple Passion); pocket clip (chrome or gold plating); and nib size (fine, medium, or broad). Not all combinations are available. This drop is limited to 41 units.
The Imperial’s torpedo-shaped body is decorated with a simple pocket clip (no rings around the barrel or finial on top), exemplary of the simple, vintage styles Bexley has built its name on. Machined from a solid block of acrylic resin, each pen is fitted with a threaded, postable cap and a gold-plated stainless steel nib, made in Germany by JoWo and engraved with the Bexley logo. The Bexley Imperial accepts international standard cartridges and converters (both included). To learn more about Bexley custom fountain pens, check out this article.
All orders will be shipped by Massdrop.
Estimated ship date is Mar 27, 2018 PT.
After the drop ends, payment will be collected. To deliver the best value to the group the request will then be submitted to the vendor up front, making all sales final. Be sure to check the discussion page for updates.
