It is beautiful. It looks different that the nib section is very short, which makes the pen's overall proportion really nice. I quickly searched on auction site and there aren't many...none brand new. Is this a rare pen to find?

Haven't seen it mentioned, Pilot 91 Yama Guri, which presumably matches Iroshizuki Yama Guri ink. There's also a Waterman Expert in brown. The one I own is Faber Castell Ambition in pearwood, it's a reddish brown with chrome accents.

I haven't seen 91 in Yama Guri color...great idea to match their own ink :)

The Ambition you own is such a clean and beautiful pen!! :)

I love micarta material :)

Me too. I also like the smell. Maybe it's because it brings me back to my childhood. My stepdad made knives and the handles were always made of .Micarta.

A German company called "Online" manufactures some nice pens made of wood, one of which on rotation right now, it's called the "Rose'n Pearls" a wonderful writer with an 18K #4 size nib. They also sell another model called the "Timeless wood" which looks fantastic although I have not managed to get my mitts on one.

 

Depending on whether you like Lt Brown or Dark, Omas Milord in the Arte Italiana line has Dark Ebony or Olive. Both stunningly beautiful and write like a dream

 

Happy hunting

I just went to Online's website.
I really love their design. The timeless pens are amazing!
Thank you for letting me know :)

I love OMAS too, the price range these days is a bit too steep for me... :P

I will consider Timeless if they are shipping to US.
I am also considering Franklin Christoph's solid ice pen and put Diamine Sepia...this will create brown pen too :)

There's always the M200 Café Cream, which can still be had fairly reasonable.


+1. Overall my favorite pen. Not a purely brown pen though - the cap is a very dark brown with the barrel a cream color.

The only purely brown pen I have is a 1938 Sheaffers Statesman vac fill. Quite a nice pen, also on the smaller side.

Inked:  Aurora Optima EF (Pelikan Tanzanite); Franklin Christoph Pocket 20 Needlepoint (Sailor Kiwa Guro); Sheaffers PFM I Reporter/Fine (Diamine Oxblood); Franklin Christoph 02 Medium Stub (Aurora Black);  Platinum Plaisir Gunmetal EF (Platinum Brown); Platinum Preppy M (Platinum Blue-Black). Leaded: Palomino Blackwing 602; Lamy Scribble 0.7 (Pentel Ain Stein 2B); Uni Kuru Toga Roulette 0.5 (Uni Kuru Toga HB); Parker 51 Plum 0.9 (Pilot Neox HB)

There's the Cleo Skribent Ebonite in red-brown. Cleo Skribent are a German company, not well known in the US. Papier-Plume sell them I think. Their pens are very good quality, with a reputation for excellent nibs.

I am a sucker....SUCKER for brown fountain pens!  And brown is not my favorite color, green is.  But when it comes to fountain pens brown seems to carry the day.

Pelikan is one of the pens I have yet to get...Cafe is reasonable too:)

Sheaffer is another I am trying get.
Waiting to see when the pen comes up on market.

You're welcome!  Thanks for the thread! 

 

I love your Stipula Gladiator.  I had the red one and sold it, but will be on the snoop for the one you have!

I have several. The special edition Lamy Al-Star Coffee, a dark brown Kaweco Sport that was only available in Europe, a Levenger True Writer in Java that is still for sale. The Monteverde Mountains of the World Kilimanjaro has some brown. I have a vintage brown Esterbrook.

I want a Karas Kustoms in brown, but in the Bolt as I have a green Fountain K on order.

They are all nice! I haven't tried Kaweco...maybe it's about time for me to get one. Does it take international converter?

Karas is another interesting one...I wonder if they are really heavy...
I like metal pens too but not heavy ones...:)

I also have the aforementioned Brown Kaweco Sport, I think it was called Espresso Brown; I purchased mine from CULT PENS, UK, which advertised it I thought as exclusive to their site.  It is a beautiful dark brown pen, which I use as an eyedropper, filled with Rohrer & Klinger, Documentis Brown.  I use the converter, which is merely a tiny little thing, sold only by Kaweco & is a far cry from capacity of International converters.  I keep maybe 8 Kaweco Sports filled, so the ink capacity with the converter is irrelevant to me, since they are not for extended writing.  

 

You should surely have a Kaweco Sport, but probably purchased for use as a "Pocket Pen," since i think that is it's intended use, because of it's size.  I have a KARAS "Ink," & it is a heavy pen.  I like it a lot , but you should definitely check it's weight, against other pens before considering it, if weight is important to you.  I am not crazy about my Stainless Steel Lamy 2000, because of it's weight & the two pens are similar.  However the traditional construction of the Karas pen makes up for the weight, compared to the SS Lamy's sweet spot of the nib, combined with it's slippery section, when I use it.  Reaching for the Karas, the weight never deters me because it is such a pleasure to use.  I think it may be best designed as an "Everyday Carry Pen," because I am not sure it could be harmed.  (I believe Brian Goulet threw one across his parking lot & found it unharmed!)

 

I would encourage you to seek one of the TWSBI Micartas for a lovely example of a "Brown Pen," which although discontinued, surely come up for sale somewhere.  It is such a pleasant material, both in color & texture, with the bonus of adapting other nibs for the pen. My favored pen color is the Brown "Family," which for me includes, tortoise, amber, orange, etc, but for a "purely BROWN pen, I couldn't improve on the TWSBI Micarta.
