Vintage and modern CS100 are fabulous pens.

They are indeed, is yours a piston filled pen?


Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

Yes!! I was going crazy looking for the last run of Model 100 a couple months ago, which is completely sold out...though I have little hope the prices will be any lower this time (they were quite high, ~$500, as far as I can remember). On a side note, I don't understand why CS can't make the rollerballs at least cheaper than the FPs, like most companies...

A $500 MSRP (with many dealers presumably offering significant discounts) is actually a pretty good price for a new pen with a large 18K gold nib. Less expensive (new) pens mostly come with either smaller nibs, or (far less expensive) steel or titanium nibs.

I see, well it is on the expensive side for me, especially when vintage Cs can be had for much less, but that's good to know. Perhaps one day...

Yes, vintage pens are hard to beat when looking at performance/$.

Well I would like either vintage or new. I do not see many vintage Conway's for sale in Canada.

I just received my February issue of PenWorld magazine, and there is a half page full color ad for the new CS 100. Alas, the pen they chose for the ad is all black...

I'll see what I can do. It's an actual magazine so I don't think there is anything online other than a web page perhaps. I'll look at the inside credits, etc. and see if they have any other online presence.

I just checked the Pen World web page and the last issue they list is December for which there is a preview. Looks to be a publication full of ads for very ornate and gaudy pens - but there were a few ads for real pens as well.

I like that distinction: ornate and gaudy pens versus real pens.... :thumbup:

I checked the magazine again and cannot find a way to see the ads online, perhaps until the next issue comes out (and hopefully by then the pen will also be out). So the only way I know is either imagine an all black CS 100 with yellow gold trim, nib, etc. but instead of having a wide ring surrounded by two slimmer ones as the cap band, it has three narrower bands instead. Or get ye to a newstand and either buy or browse a copy of the February issue of Pen World.

 

If I could figure out how to post a photo, I could perhaps just cut-and-paste, but that would probably be breaking some sort of law (copyright, or something, one can only imagine).

I just can't possibly imagine writing with the Solid Gold Mount Vesuvius pen that writes in lava colored ink.

Ahh GP,  AFAIK you know your stuff about Law...

 

Would showing an ad from a magazine on a forum like this consist of a copyright infringement under US law?? I have been wondering, as the ad has the purpose to reach as many people as possible...

You really should get permission & give full attribution. But that's just the US rules. USPTO.gov will get you to the basics of copyright.

OK, thanks.

Each country has it's own version...

AFAIK in our legal system you can show small low grade pics in what clearly is a review.

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.
