I am thinking that if one were to ask Mary Burke very nicely, she might post the CS 100 photo from Pen World.  Assuming she can get consent, of course from the forum moderator, of course.

For your information: Mary IS the official Mod for this subforum....

 

But each mod can and must act if he/she comes upon certain facts, so GP was doing her "general duty" so to say, and rightly so, as it would be very awkward for FPN to have lawsuits to contend with...

Darn! I knew I should have used an emoticon!

 

I am aware of Ms. Burke's role on this forum. My suggestion was tongue in cheek, but I do think asking Mary to share the photo is reasonable, assuming it is not now copyrighted by Pen World.

Please find below an image of the Classic Black model 100 that appeared in Pen World.  I am only showing the pen and not the complete advert because for the rules in this forum states that our conversations are to be for discussion and not for advertising :)

Thanks for this, it is very elegant.

But but you could show the whole ad in Marketwatch, I believe.....

Here's a shot of my 100 from the last issue a couple of years ago in Classic Green. Along with my CS28 in Green & Black marble. Just love these colours.

'The Yo-Yo maneuver is very difficult to explain. It was first perfected by the well-known Chinese fighter pilot Yo-Yo Noritake. He also found it difficult to explain, being quite devoid of English.

So we left it at that. He showed us the maneuver after a sort.  B*****d stole my kill.'

No, it's a standard Schmidt screw-in converter. Certainly like the LE 60th Anniversary one. We'll see if they've done anything else with the rest of the production.

Thank you and the team at our factory thanks you too for your positive feedback.

 

It is amazing how some resin colours are brought to life by using a silver trim.

I feel like a thirsty puppy salivating over a bowl of water with a glass lid on it!

 

Any word as to when the model 100 will be on the market?

 

Thanks,

 

Bobby

Please forgive the poor quality of the photos as they were taken on my phone.

 

This is my first modern Conway Stewart (my only other Conway Stewart is a vintage Dinkie) which I picked up today. It's a 100 series "Vintage Diamond" from a limited edition of pens made for my local pen shop which celebrated 100 years of trading last year.

Sadly, the pen has gone back to Conway Stewart. The thread on the barrel was not cut correctly and top over the clip was not set correctly.

As for the nib, it was an extra fine but the tines were not aligned and the pen "clicked" a lot when writing.

I'm confident that things will work out fine and it hasn't put me off the brand but it is a disappointing first experience. I also have a lot of sympathy for my local pen shop whose good name is attached to this pen

Luckily, I have all of my other recent acquisitions to write with - my current favourite being a Platinum Izumo (Oops - am I allowed to mention that in this forum?)

Just noticed that Andy's Pens has the new CS100 on their site (no affil.). Bit disappointed by the colours: Black, Fresian and Nebula. There is a new three ring band around the cap too...i liked the "old" colours better.

I've just had a quick look.  I could live with a black one but I'm not sure about the others colour choices.  On another point, I don't think the three equal width cap bands work very well but I'm sure there will be plenty of enthusiats that love it.

 

Kind regards,

Just had a quick peek too. Not sure I like the three narrow bands on the cap. Much prefer the middle band to be thicker - somehow a thicker band makes it look better balanced to me. I like the classic black but not too sure about the other 2 colours - would have to see them in real life to decide.
