The last model is the Ragtime made in the Titanic or Burlwood celluloid, the same as that used in the Divine Proportions. The Titanic Ragtime is limited to 10 pens in both gold and silver trims while the Burlwood is limited to 20 in each trim. It should be noted that the cap bands on all the Ragtime pens are made in either solid yellow or white gold to match the rest of the trim, rather than just being plated. You don’t often see solid gold bands anymore so it’s a nice perk to have it here.
The Ragtime has what Visconti calls a “piston” filler, but really it’s a captive converter and Bryant actually makes that distinction in the description on his website. It’s a level of honesty you won’t find from every other retailer. While I tend to prefer pistons over captive converters, there’s no denying the ease in repair of a captive converter should the need ever arise. The Ragtime, being a smaller pen, uses the #4 nib made from 23k Palladium available in fine, medium, or broad widths.
I really like the amount of variation Bryant has created here. Given the amount materials, trim options, and the physical size of each pen, there should be something for everyone.
