Hello,

this time I'm not writing so much.
Therefore I have done more images.
For some weeks I have done a review to my first CS Churchill in classic green.
This time it's in classic black but again with an F nib and as a lever filler.
The first thing I have done after unpacking was checking the nib alignment and it was perfectly aligned.
Going over to inking it just flowed out of the box with no problems.
Again I can say it's a great pen in a different color.

Regards
Sascha

Here are the images:

Ha!

Is the Churchill a heavy pen? I've held that Winston and that is a beast!

Great pens. I love your photography! The third image is IMHO, the best. The sparkle and the beautiful lighting!

I have to rethink my decision not to work after retirement to afford more pens. For thirty six years I pushed pen for work. Now I might have to work to get pens!

It's more long than heavy. But then I like heavy pens, so my light might be your heavy. :embarrassed_smile: The CS dimensions page says it's 28 grams.

I'm don't have the second work to get my pens.
I have a passion to do lecture in the field of electronics.
With my passion I purchase fountain pens. :)
A great deal or?

I know this thread is very old, but hopefully it is still being viewed.

 

Hi Sascha,

 

Just wondering if you have any problems with the CS lever mechanism of the Churchill since buying your pens.  I've been looking for a c/c version, but all I can find, in the colours I like, are the lever fillers.  Keep reading some bad things about them though.

 

Thanks

-Chris

Early Churchill lever pens had an issue with the internal pressure bar rubbing up against the sac near the section end, causing the sac to get cut through over time. 

 

CS replaced the bar with a new design at some point to eliminate the problem.

 

In addition, CS would replace the part as part of warranty work if someone contacted CS about it.

 

So, most lever pens have been fixed by now.

Thanks Mark...that's good to know.  The pen I was looking at has a 2006 manufacture date...same green as with Sascha's pen.  Now that CS is out of business, I wonder if there are repair places that could fix it if it has the old mechanism.

Pretty sure that any of the experienced pen repairers out there can do a fix if needed.

 

You could post about this in either the Repair forum section or the British pen section and probably get more input.....

What a great looking pen - awesome pictures too!  Hate that CS shut their doors - they made some of the sharpest looking pens on the market.

 

Thanks for the post!

I have a CS Churchill with which needed repair (the J-Bar issue), but since CS shut their doors I thought there is no one around to honor the warranty on it.
