Hi Everyone,

 

I have inherited a bunch of beautiful pens and I have been spending time trying to learn more about them. 

In the picture, most of these are Levenger.

 

I have been trying to understand why the black and silver have Levenger printed but then the clip has rOtring?  Are these L-tech pens?

I have a lot of other rOtring but they don't have both brands printed on the pen.

 

Also, the set of 3 larger Levenger don't look like the other regular size Levenger pens.  I really like these and I want to know more.

 

I don't know anything about the snake pen.  The black pen is a Waverly fountain.  The brown is a Waltham fountain.

 

If anyone can help me with the other pens in the picture, I would appreciate it.  I am new to this so please send advice. 

 

Thanks!

The Levenger-Rotring collaboration included a fountain pen, rollerball, ballpoint, and mechanical pencil. These were sold in the Levenger catalogue. I believe they were based on the Rotring 600 series implements (simply re-branded?). I received a set as a gift in 2002, so I believe one might date them to the late 90s-early 00s(?) I'd also be interested in learning more about these, since I haven't been able to locate much info about them. I can attest to their being stoutly made, though. But for some dents in the aluminum case that held it and the Levenger imprint wearing away on a couple of them, my set was no worse for wear after 4 years of college. And that's saying a lot considering the trials I put them through! I'd post a photo, but they're in a storage container in another state. : /

 

The two other Rotrings in your photo are non-collab models. A genealogy of the Rotring 600 series w/ photos from a couple years back:

The design cues in the guide should help to identify the specific iteration of your black 600 pens.

Before my fountain pen days I still appreciated a good pen. My rotring 700 series roller ball and pencil still survive and that rollerball still gets regular use. Fortunately it accepts Pelikan refills which is convenient because all of my more recent pens purchases are Pelikan's... but I digress. As much as I really liked the esthetics and feel of the 700 I really didn't like the transition to the angular 600s. Now that FPs are a bigger part of my modest collection I really wish I had gotten the 700 fountain pen. And if information on the 600s is thin it would appear as if only a very small group of us were 700 fans as they are rarely mentioned. I think that's a shame because they were pretty solid pens. I think I will keep an eye out for a 700 FP unless someone tells me I'd be disointed. 😊

I have just picked up a Rotring 600 with 18k nib. I hope it would be a good pen.
