attika - where do you get those nice Diamine glass bottles? They don't look like the ones regularly offered.

Hi Uncle!

 

Parker 41, was the SECOND attempt to create a cheapest option to Parker 51. The first was the two first versions of Parker 21 (Mk I and Mk II). Parker 41 is a shortest Parker 51 with octanium nib (a stainless steel alloy) and polystyrene body (instead of PMMA). The pen was not so successful as P21 or P51. Parker has changed the clip design and tassie and rebrand the pen as Parker 21 Super (the latest P21 version).

 

The pen isn't C/C filler. It has the same aerometric pump with half metal hood (the same as P21 and P51 Special).

 

I've search a good P41 for about four years... This one I bought one month ago. Uninked...

Hi David,
Those gold Edison nibs look pretty desirable!

 

attika - where do you get those nice Diamine glass bottles? They don't look like the ones regularly offered.

I've bought them form store in Budapest. I don't know if they only have these or the plastic ones as well, but whenever I've ordered from there I got them in a glass bottle.
The only plastic bottle I have - Sargasso Sea - is what I got from a great FPN member in the UK.

Those Diamine bottles look like the 1 fluid ounce bottles (nominally 28.4ml, but which can be filled to 30ml) used by Diamine for some 'private label' inks such as Yard-O-Led branded ink, also for the 30ml size of Registrar's Ink (at least in the picture on the Diamine web site, which has an incorrect aspect ratio).

 

The regular range of Diamine fountain pen inks is in 30ml plastic bottles or 80ml square base glass bottles.

It looks like your shop has made special arrangements with Diamine to buy the regular range of Diamine fountain pen inks in 30ml glass bottles. As Saskia notes, these small glass bottles are not routinely used for Diamine fountain pen ink.

So... I might have got a new pen again... 

A Namiki Falcon. (Yes, it is still branded as Namiki instead of Pilot. They renamed it recently, did they not? )

The pen is so easy to mess up with finger prints and dirty hands, and even paper fluff. :( So pretty! 

 

Ink used is Diamine Ancient Copper.

The Falcon is one great pen, I love mine. They did rename it recently but for some reason they still sell the old version along with the new one. I don't really like the version with rhodium accent so I was glad they didn't discontinue it, as I bought mine a bit after it was renamed.
