Hi All,

I have a fairly high quality pen that i am unable to identify. I actually got it with a case that I bought not to long ago. I took it to a colleague of mine who is a seasoned Pen enthusiast and he and i are baffled by this one. It comes completely apart and all of the machining is absolutely perfect. Everything fits together perfectly with almost no friction. All parts of this pen (Except for the feed of course) are metal of one type or another and nothing is oxidizing. The nib has a nice looking vermeil (Ambiguous "Iridium point germany" stamp) that writes smooth as silk. The main problem is that the convertor receptacle is screw in and proprietary. I would love to use this pen other than just dipping it, but i need to figure out what it is so i can get the parts.....Any Ideas? The cap stone piece looks to be Onyx possibly, although i am no jeweler so i can't be sure.

What does the clip look like?


Tes rires retroussés comme à son bord la rose,

Effacent mon dépit de ta métamorphose;

Tu t'éveilles, alors le rêve est oublié.

Ditto!!!! Always got to show the clip.


German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

It reminds me of the Dayacom pens. They're like Schmidt/JoWo and all those other mass manufacturing companies. 

 

Take a gander through what they have.

Looks Chinese - I don't know of any kits that have a threaded converter, but if Independance has a threaded converter, it's worth a shot. Kit pens a pressed together with friction fit parts, but they are usually a bugger to get apart again, they fit really tight.

A non threaded converter might fit in. I have some Delta pens that came with threaded converters. I am able to use some noname converters with them. Other converters on the other hand are too thick and I can't insert them into the section because of the threads. If you have a penshop near you it would be best to check if they can find a fitting converter for your pen.

Here is a picture of the cap as requested

Interesting thought about possibly a kit pen. All of the parts came a part very easily and stay put quite well. Like i said the machining of the threads is really good. I tried some standard pop in cartridges and they wont fit. I will look at the delta that you mentioned maybe i can find something there
