    Roman Harvest Fountain pens

    I have been looking at the Roman Harvest fountain pens from Timberbits with a view to purchasing some.
    As I have only seen the photos supplied by T/B and never seen them in real life I was wondering if anyone has purchased them and could give me a rundown on the quality.
    They certainly look good but I would like to be certain before buying!!!!

    Regards

    Terry

    Terry,

    They are excellent, I have had several buyers who prefer these to the Jr Majestic. The Gold with Rhodium is a bit blingy, but the Rhodium with Black Titanium is a real classy pen, a bit of the fancy stuff to give it quality but reasonably subtle.

    As Neil says, Terry, quality is good. A very heavy, solid pen. Even my wife thought it was OTT, though - her exact phrase was "Mr T should hang one round his neck." Never had a black titanium one, so will bow to Neil's experience on that one.
