Just a couple of days ago, I missed out on a very good deal. It's a fountain pen version of the Rotring 600, that in itself is something to look out for, but this one seems particularly interesting.


The pictures aren't really clear, and the lighting could be much better, but this seems to be a silver version with black trim? A silver barrel with black ends and section. Something I've never seen before. Upon closer inspection, the Rotring logo is colored black as well, and it's missing it's characteristic red ring?


My best guess is that it's a very worn down black one, or perhaps intentionally polished to remove the black paint? But maybe there is such color combination out there? Does anyone know?





Whichever it is, misssing out on a $15 Rotring 600 fountain pen is still makes for a sad day...

Yes, regardless of how worn it is, missing it for $15 is sad.


I have the silver model, but barely used it because of how heavy it is, and it's likely to go on ebay at some point (although not for $15) ;-)


The mechanical pencils look awesome too, and I can't help wondering if they're also on the ultra-heavy side or have a more "normal," mechanical-pencil-like weight.

Yeah, I'm much more content with missing out on it, knowing that it's more likely to be a very worn out one, rather than a very rare color. 


The pencils are quite heavy as well, I really like how they feel in the hand.

Looks like it could be a Frankenpen put together from black and silver parts.

Definitely a Franken-pen.  rOtring never made their pens like that.  $15 is a great price for a parts pen, though.
