Got sent over here thanks to @j-e-g and she suggested I speak to you about this fantastic pen. I was on the hunt for a Prometheus Writes Alpha pen that was the only pen at the time I knew of that was capable of using and being designed to use Mont Blanc fineliner refills. I have a Prometheus Alpha Beta QR light amongst a Alpha torch. I had been wanting to pull the trigger on an Alpha Writes for quite some time now, but wasn’t sure if I wanted the Ti or the other options it comes in and was perusing for one on the secondary market. Whole watching reviews of it on YouTube and also looking at them on Instagram, I observed many members of the EDC community, primarily the custom knife world that I circle in that had this new Ti pen that I wasn’t familiar with.
Being familiar with the custom knife and light and some part of the pen world I was curious and started looking at hashtags and other people’s posts of the seemingly newcomer. After a short time and from the help of some friends (in real life) I was directed to their website and came across the information you are now armed with. Without a minute to spare I jumped on the order in case it was a limited batch since they are a Kickstarter crew.
Fast forward to four days later and I received it in the mail just a day after my new MB refills. I tore open the packaging and discarded the perfectly good refill and inserted and loaded up my MB refill. Cocked and Locked I went to the nearest Rhodia A5 and started to put some work in son.
All I can say is, wow, this pen is la formidable. You need to bite the bullet and not wait if you are a user of ballpoint or rollerballs or fineliners. There is an updated version coming in May as you already know that will be more user friendly and adjust in size with the post... I will jump on that release when it comes and that way I can have two of my favorite colors in fineliner from MB. I’m hoping they offer it in copper or brass in addition to Ti this next to round, but I understand it’s all about supply and demand.
It’s late and I have to get to bed to get up super stupid early for work as I work twelve hours shifts that begin around 0400 hrs. I will say that don’t wait for an MD negotiation and drop, this one is worth it and the coupon they offer when you register at the website will help ease the pain from your pocketbook. Hope this helps, I’ll try and take pictures of the writing samples with the pen tomorrow and add them to new comments. Stay safe out there, cheers.
