It will be first come, first served at the show when we set up on Friday the 23rd. We will not take pre-orders for this pen.

We are going to price this pen at the same rate as our normal Menlo set up as a Converter Filling Pen. Now I realize that some of you might feel left out if you love the looks of this pen, but cannot attend the San Francisco Pen Show. But I think that we can still help you out! We do still have some of this Modified Japanese Autumn material available, and we can make a few more custom pens from it.

We are putting the finishing touches on some other items, and will be bringing more then pens! We have chosen two new materials and will be discontinuing one material. Canyon Trail is the material that we are discontinuing.

Part of the reason for making these pens while we were gone was to replenish our stock that is ready to ship, but also to get pens ready for the San Francisco Pen Show , which is not that far away in August.
