Oh My God It’s Full Of Stars!
Here is the OMGISOS black pen. Full of super fine diamond dust (the stars). We have changed the polishing specification on this. There is a trade off with polishing and that is loss of detail in the machining. I feel that this is a most important factor. In order to retail the crisp edges there is less polishing, in simple terms it means it is less shiny which after much experimentation I personally prefer.
2001 match cut
I have realised on speaking to a new P-2 owner Mr F that I have not once mentioned its size! It is a total of 137mm long, which is quite short, deliberately so – it is a (space) travel pen after all! It also appears smaller than conventional serious ‘man’ pens because the cap is the same diameter as the barrel. At 28 grams or so (depending on material) it is quite light or as I like to say – just right. You remember the famous match-cut scene from the beginning of 2001 A Space Odyssey – the bone being thrown into the air?
Fish Guts ink is no more here is the recipe
After last week’s Pips about us no longer making Fish Guts ink I have been asked for the recipe. It is messy and you will end up with a lot of black left over but this is ok if you are making 20 bottles at a go! You will need my favourite British made Diamine ink. Mix one bottle of Twilight with one bottle of Teal and add 100ml of black.
Japanese Indigo watch straps
Strap Focus, a look at the Japanese indigo strapped to a Daymark! We still have some left. Email us and we can sort it for you.
Daymark Dark in the light
Last week we had the little things, this week it’s just watches and every watch and strap seen here is available to buy, what’s more all of them can be shipped immediately! In the spirit of keeping things light ‘n breezy there are added sweeteners attached to each watch.
So let’s start with a Daymark Dark, black ceramic coated steel case and very limited in number, strapped to a black OMI with a black DLC buckle. Now it would not be Schofield to show a little love; this watch will come with an extra strap and buckle of your choice and a set of Drivers! BUT you have to buy it now, like tonight, tomorrow or over the weekend! Email us or visit the website. Yee-ha!
Telemark + Extras
The Telemark on a black India Rubber with rare blue, ceramic coated steel buckle. Like the offer above this watch will come with a silver ACME whistle and an extra strap of your choice but like the offer above you have to act soon!
I think the scene is now set. Here we have A Signalman Bare Bones with a German Silver dial strapped to a grey //9h7b strap and brushed buckle, hmm let me think… Free Strap Kit and extra strap! Woo-Hoo!
