My Autumn pen...

 

100 series bronze...Diamine Sepia.

Hope my scrawl doesn't offend too much.  :blush:

 

 

Very beautiful combination. I really love that color pen, and with that ink, it is eye-popping  :yikes:. Cannot wait to see what CS has in store for the upcoming holidays...

Today I'm using this colorful Dandy. It's light, but nicely balanced and a favorite. I've never seen the color before does anyone have any insights as to when this pen was made? The number is 455/500S photo (1).JPG

CS+Belliver+Medical+Sciences+w+Grays_273

 

My newest. A "Medical Sciences" Limited Edition. It is modeled on the Belliver, which is my favorite modern CS shape, but in chased ebonite and with the single broad cap band. 

 

I will have the broad nib that came on this beauty ground to a 0.7 mm cursive italic.

Sorry, I have no idea when this was produced, or what the colour is, but it is a beautiful pen.

 

Hope someone can come up with the info.

Today, my Conway Stewart No. 475.

 

I'm very Brit today, British pen, British pipe, English pipe blend  :D

 

 

 

Yes, quite!......

 

 

How on earth did it happen? How can one possibly use so many pens? Which one am I using today?!

 

 

 

Just collected up all the Conway Stewarts that were lying around the flat. Time for a sort out!

 

:thumbup:

 

Some very nice pens there.....it's very easy to end up with lots of CS pens.....  :rolleyes:

Don't know for your sure, but your colorful Dandy, could be 5 years old or so?.....

Must be a new pen. Why not ask CS to exchange the nib for their IM nib???

Thank you for the good words, sir!

 

If only my pics could do justice to my CS pens.....they both look much better in person than my poor photos show....

Hi Parispens, an amber Dandy sold on ebay yesterday...its number was 448/500 and was dated to 2006. Maybe your pen is dated to around this time?

Today it is The Universal Pen, No. 470 which has faded to a beautiful dark chocolate brown and a blue marble 388 with a faded barrel, but it still writes smoothly!

A small parcel arrived by post last evening. After I opened it and allowed it some time to acclimate towards room temperature, I removed a new bottle of Diamine Sepia, which I immediately uncapped, and filled my CS 100 Coral Green. Such a nice warm autumn color.

 

A tip of the hat to Mallymal1, for his photos of this lovely ink.

Sounds like you know how to appreciate a fine ink, warblerick.  :thumbup:
