FPN appearing slow

Dearest Member or Visitor of the little Fountain Pen Nut house on the digital prairie,

Due to a continuing DDoS attack, FPN could be moving only slowly. Hosting Support is dealing with this. The earlier reported hardware issue has been fixed. Apologies for the inconvenience.

The 234 1/2 Deluxe was made '52-54 only....a standard sized pen like the regular 234 1/2. Meisterstuck clip and a different cap band.

 Semi-flex KOB....a writing nib, thinner than modern's B nibs.

 

The 236 looks medium-large; which was the size of the 146 back then also.

Everyone says poor Mozart dead at only 36. None say poor Mendelson, dead at only 38. His family only allowed him to start at 20, but before, musicians use to come to the Mendelson garden to steal the music of Mendelson and his sister. A good artist also, can still buy prints of his famous Scottish drawings in Scotland.

The cheapest lessons are from those who learned expensive lessons. Ignorance is best for learning expensive lessons.

 

Pens/inks/paper on hold for a year....new addiction pocket watch chains. :happyberet:

I'm jealous.  I had a 236 for many years.  It had a silky smooth nib and a "STOFHAAS" (German stationer) imprint on the cap.  Sadly, I FedEx'ed it to a restorer a year ago and it never arrived.  I got some money from FedEx but I miss that pen.

Yeah mine is a beauty.  No imprints on mine other than the factory ones.  My biggest fear is the loss of one in the mail.  I haven't put it into daily rotation yet.  It's inked up at home though.  I have it filled with toffee brown.  It holds a ton of ink.
