Bexley Poseidon Magnum II

Some quick snaps of the Bexley Poseidon Magnum II fountain pen I brought to the May meeting (~Click on photos to enlarge~):
This particular Magnum II is the "Gold Bamboo" pattern, one of the non-production colours shown on this page. The Magnum II pens look exactly like the original Magnum line of Poseidons, but use a piston-filling mechanism (vs. a cartridge/converter).
My Poseidon with the Robert Oster ink I received from Nikaido. They are now carrying this line of fountain pen inks from Australia at their gift shop in Richmond.
My Poseidon came with a wonderful stub nib (in gold-plated steel), which is a joy to write with.

(photos below) Adding a couple of more photos of the pen in slightly brighter light:
Many thanks to Greg M. of Pentrace for selling this pen to me, and to Nikaido for the ink. I'll post a review of the latter in a separate blog post, because it's a very interesting ink!
