A lot of you are aware that I’ve been working on redesigning the Herald.
Feedback that I received was that the pen could use the centerband eliminated, as well as the trim ring on the barrel. Most people also wanted the ability to post the cap.
The other comment that I received is that it would be very nice to have an eyedropper filling system.
Well, I’ve paid attention to my customers requests, and all four of the above changes have been made.
As you can see, the black centerband has been eliminated…
In the photo below, you will notice that I have eliminated the barrel trim ring.
And lastly, you will see that the cap can post…
As far as the filling system goes, the pen is now available as an eyedropper, or as a cartridge/converter.
The new version is also a bit shorter and lighter than the original. It is 18 grams capped and 10 grams uncapped, wheras the original was 29 grams and 14 grams, respectively.
The only parts of this pen that is not made of ebonite would be the nib, feed, and clip.
My previous version of this pen was $175, and then if you wanted an ebonite section, you would add $30, for a total of $205.
This new version comes standard with an ebonite section, and starts at $190. So this pen is actually a better pen, at a lesser price.
And good news…anyone who has purchased the original Herald from me will receive 10% off the purchase of the updated Herald.
All that I presently have in inventory is ebonite pens. Acrylics will be available in about a week or two.
