The one that got away.

Here's the only pic I have of the Bexley Olive Ripple 51 I picked up from howard Levy at the '05 LA pen show.



Why oh why did I sell that pen! It's going to be a long time before I see another. Sigh...lesson learned.

The pic doesnt even come close to showing how choice this one was, and the broad nib it had....deep wistful sigh.

I WILL find another someday.

Dennis,

You might also look for some olive ripple acrylic rod stock. You could then have one of the custom pen makers duplicate the pen for you. I've got a gorgeous Mandarin Yellow 51 that Brad Torelli did and its just a great pen. Happy Hunting.

That's a thought.

I've seen Brad's work & OMG that boy has skills! A friend of mine picked up one of his titanium 51's. They aren't cheap, but IMHO he's the best with 51 reproductions.

Any pics?

Oh my goodness, I picked up a pen that looks exactly like this at the Dallas pen show this year!. I'll get a pic and post it as soon as I can. But from your pic it is the mate!
