My Newest Yellow Bexley - the Poseidon Magnum
Permalink Closed


I recently acquired Bexley's latest Mandarin Yellow pen from my friend Dennis Bowden at Parkville Pen.

It's a larger version of the regulkar version Poseidon and for a guy with big hands like me, it's a very comfortable writer.  Available with either silver or gold trim, mine has the gold and is fitted with a lovely Bexley Stub nib.

Here's a photo (from Dennis) of it:

I cant speak for Jack, but I had a clients bexley stub on the bench for some basic flow adjustment. I was allowed to use it for a few weeks & I loved it. Crisp lines yet smooth writing all the way through. I personally couldnt spot a down side on the nib.

John,

Sorry I didn't reply.  Just got back from a few days out on the boat tuna fishing.

As Dennis noted, the stub nib on my Magnum is silky smooth and is a pleasure to write with.  You won't be disappointed if you get one.
