This is not pen related but while trolling for coffee this appeared because I searched for Rich Italian.

 

Bust 18"...now if my math is correct that's a diameter of 6"....22" long. Gosh I would like to see the prospective buyer....Olive Oil comes to mind.

 

It made me chuckle anyway.

Or the difference between the Malaysian ringgit and the US dollar and the difference between Waterman and Montblanc.

Shucks...

 

Look up your nearest Engineering workshop and give them a call. Ask if they have any cutter clear cases they throw in the bin that you could collect for your pens...it's the same thing.

 

That's how I store all my odd pens,

When IT sounds too good to be true it often is.

 

Very tempting BIN price, 0 Feedback, 5 days auction, very little description...one to steer well clear of.

 

we also have our very own version of NY Monty here in the UK whose Waterman prices are always sky high.

I'm guessing it is a black Phileas with some carts. BIN price a lot better than the previous item, but there you have to pay for the tutorial in history.

 

Happy 2014, Force (and the rest of the gang, ofcourse)

A Happy 2014 to you D.ick.

 

Yes, I too think it's a Phili but not sure on the colour.

How can you tell? Is there actually a pen in either of those photos? Do ebay sellers assume there are idiots out there who would buy a pig in a poke?

I said I was guessing. From the shape I would say it was a fountainpen. and a Phileas or Kultur. Judging this pic is something like looking at X-ray photos.

The discernible features point to Phileas rather than Kultur.

And yes Force, the colour could be blue also.

 

Sometimes you get a good buy on items like these as many pepole would skip this item ...
