  1. Hello, I'm am new to this forum. I bought a Tintenkuli and would like some information on it. I have read a post from this website about the history of the pen, but would like to find some instructions. So far I have seen some pictures of the original instructions on eBay but they are in German. I am sure it is a piston driven pen becaus there is a twist knob at the end of the pen. How does that work? Where the ink go in through? The tip or just behind the tip? Any info would help. Please point me in the rite direction. I would appreciate it. Thank you

    Tropen Scholar Piston Removal

    Short version: Do any of you fine ladies or gentlemen know how to safely remove the piston assembly of a mid-50s (I'm guessing) Tropen Scholar? Unscrew? Friction fit? Sealed for all eternity and I'm all out of luck? Longer version: This is asked more in hope than expectation - searches found a couple of threads where this was asked and not answered, but hey, third time lucky... I have recently acquired a Tropen Scholar piston filler, and despite early happiness that the thing was taking up ink like a thirsty camel at an oasis, my Serenity Blue thumb and forefinger have established that it is, in fact, leaking ink behind the piston and, joy, into the blind cap. Now it may well be that I can't acquire or adapt a solution to solve this, but I'm pretty sure I can't get anywhere unless I can remove the piston assembly to actually get at it. It looks like it must be screwed in, but some gentle application of heat and a suitably padded Bionic Wrench didn't seem to be getting anywhere, and obviously I'm reluctant to push it when I don't even know if that's actually how it's fitted. Any help would be very much appreciated. Cheers, Al
  3. Goldfink is yet another, relatively obscure German brand know for making high quality products. In my opinion, Goldfink was the Matador of 4-5 years ago. Penboard.de has repository of nice specimens if one is interested in learning about their models. Here is a two page leaflet showing their diverse portfolio (images belong to eBayer watermarked). I dont think it shows their complete line of pens but it has their rarer models like Transparent and Long-short safety pens. It is believed that their products were contract manufactured by various makers around Berlin. http://i.imgur.com/EcdxQfs.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ksIHtT0.jpg Goldfink is better know for their Wonderfüller which is a hybrid of twist and button filler. I had one in a #2 size but am regretting selling it. I had a few Goldfinks but one latest acquisition prompted this thread. It is the top pen in the pic below. I think it is the Preisschlager (economy) model per the leaflet above. Cosmetically it is in very good condition and has an amazing #6 flex nib. Their nib denomination runs smaller than typical and perhaps #6 is more like a #4 or #5. The faceted captop design is very attractive and one of my favorite feature of this brand. Other pens below are a #6 stylograph safety, MB142 and MB146 sized piston fillers. If you have any please share details and your experience with them. http://i.imgur.com/rB19g62.jpg http://i.imgur.com/tjAIN5c.jpg http://i.imgur.com/J7OyV8j.jpg?1 http://i.imgur.com/4Jl85E0.jpg?1 http://i.imgur.com/E3aEzah.jpg?1 http://i.imgur.com/gdziASM.jpg?1

  5. Hi there, I am needing your expertise to help identify a German pen I purchased at the Dallas Pen Show. The pen, in the box with directions in German, is a wonderfully flexy, smooth writer, but that's as far as I know! I do know it's a Fine Feather Quill with Ink Control...(Bottom pen above it's box.) It looks similar to early Pelikans and to early Kawecos, but I can't seem to find any hints! The writing on the cap is even hard to decipher. Any ideas? I did take a photo of the directions (all in German), but i've not uploaded yet. Help...please....
  6. The Diplomat Aero is the third pen from the Diplomat range that I’ve added to my collection in recent times – and definitely the most interesting of the three, in terms of design! I wasn’t keen on it at first glance, but given my positive experiences with two of its stablemates – the Esteem (https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/271382-the-diplomat-esteem-conservative-german-styling-great-writing-experience/) and the Excellence A (https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/296585-the-diplomat-excellence-a-another-great-german-fountain-pen/) – I decided to take the plunge. So I contacted Kevin of JustWrite Pens (www.JustWrite.com.au), and asked if he had any left in stock. The answer came back in the affirmative – and in due course, yet another pen had made its way to my door. As with the Excellence A, the Aero is not an inexpensive pen – the recommended retail (with stainless steel nib) is up around US$195, though (once again) I was able to get a significant discount, with a site-wide 25% discount on offer during June 2015. The Diplomat Aero is not a perfect pen – it has a couple of drawbacks that I’ll outline in the review below – but it’s such a striking pen to look at, and writes so wonderfully smoothly, that I’m happy to overlook them. ______________________________________________________________________ 1. Appearance & Design (9.5/10)The Aero comes in exactly the same kind of box as the Excellence A – a generously-sized box with aluminium wrap-around lid. Inside the box I found the pen itself – a brown cigar-shaped object that tapers sharply at both ends. The barrel and cap are both deeply scored with “groove-like depressions” along their length that give the pen its distinctive look – according to Diplomat’s advertising materials, it’s designed to resemble a Zeppelin airship. http://i.imgur.com/Fp77kci.jpg http://i.imgur.com/mt6j03u.jpg I love the look of the pen when capped – the chocolate brown colour of the bulk of the pen, topped and tailed with brushed aluminium ‘finials’. It *does* look a bit like a(n elongated) Zeppelin airship – a very unusual shape, but it’s really grown on me! Uncapping the pen reveals a brushed aluminium grip section, with a fairly severe step-down from the barrel – but the length of the grip is sufficient to ensure this doesn’t create any issues in terms of comfort. 2. Construction & Quality (8/10)The Aero is a robust pen, very well made, with a full aluminium casing, and anodised surfaces – in this case, a matte brown finish. With two caveats (see below) this is a pen I’d expect to cop a lot of abuse without trouble (though if you want to retain the finish, you’ll need to take all due care!). The pen barrel appears to be quite thick, the cap a little less so – but both are extremely sturdy. The grip section threads securely into the barrel, and the cap snaps on to ensure an airtight seal, ensuring the ink won’t dry out in the nib. Be warned: at least initially, a bit of firm pressure is required to get the cap to fit snugly. http://i.imgur.com/aM7dn24.jpg http://i.imgur.com/3P4X3Wz.jpg I only have two real concerns with the quality of the construction: first, there’s the aluminium clip. I’ve read a couple of comments online that suggest it’s a little fragile. It’s certainly quite stiff and inflexible – like the rest of the pen, I believe it’s made of anodised (matte silver finish) aluminium, which I suspect may have a lower tolerance to bending and springing. The clip itself is also made of two parts – a smaller, bent section that attaches to the pen under the cap finial, and the ‘body’ of the clip itself, which runs the length of the cap. The two parts are either soldered or screwed together (or both – it’s hard to say which!). The consequence of this is that it feels a little flimsy to me – I can see how it might fairly easily snap off if it got snagged on something (at least one online review has reported this problem). http://i.imgur.com/d7Ul107.jpg http://i.imgur.com/EYwQUSU.jpg [Forgive the poor focus - my setup isn't the best!] A second, smaller concern is the ‘paintwork’ on the pen – the words ‘Diplomat’ and ‘Made in Germany’ are painted (in white) onto the anodised surface of the cap (near the base), while the logo is painted in black onto the finial. With extended usage about half the logos has worn away, and it looks likely the remainder will follow, leaving the finial a bare brushed aluminium dome. Similarly, the white text on the brown anodised aluminium has begun to wear off in places. Neither of these greatly concern me – they’re cosmetic details. What’s more, to be honest, I didn’t find the logo very attractive – if anything I think the pen looks better without it! 3. Weight & Dimensions (10/10)Like its more conservative ‘cousin’ (the Excellence A), the Aero is a substantial pen – if you prefer a lightweight pen, you should look elsewhere. It weighs 41.5g capped, and 30.5g uncapped – unlike the Excellence, the bulk of the weight is in the barrel, not the cap. http://i.imgur.com/XgmBDxs.jpg The pen is 140mm capped, and 129mm uncapped; ‘posted’ (i.e., with the cap sitting loosely on the back of the pen), it’s somewhere around the 160mm mark (my calipers max out at 155). At the join between cap and barrel (the widest point), the pen’s diameter is 15mm. The grip section is nearly 30mm long (from ‘step’ to nib), and tapers gently from a maxmimum diameter of ~12.3mm down to 10mm. http://i.imgur.com/UX9dHAM.jpg 4. Nib & Performance (9/10)The Aero takes exactly the same nib as the Excellence A –#6 size, made of stainless steel (though gold nib options are also available). Once again, I was only able to obtain the pen with a M nib – which I found to be a wonderfully smooth writer, laying down a generous amount of ink with hardly any feedback. These two pens (the Excellence A and the Aero) are among the smoothest writers in my collection – though the Esteem is not far behind (once I’d sorted out its skipping issues). The one thing that differentiates these two higher-end pens, in terms of writing experience, is the slight slipperiness of the aluminium grip section – at least in winter, when my hands are dry. I find I have to grip the pen just a little tighter than is ideal. I would have expected this to be a deal-breaker – but surprisingly, it isn’t. It takes a couple of minutes to adjust… then off I go. http://i.imgur.com/D3kH279.jpg I should also mention, for the sake of completeness: I don’t find these nibs to be very ‘flexible’. They’re not quite nails – you can gain some line variation by exerting pressure – but they’re at their best when they’re gliding across the page rather than being forced down into it. I haven’t tried the gold nibs – but my understanding is that for the additional price they’re not significantly softer. The stainless steel nibs are probably be the best value option for most users. http://i.imgur.com/BLfBikp.jpg 5. Filling System & Maintenance (9.5/10)Diplomat pens take standard international cartridges and converters. The lower-priced Esteem did not come with a converter included in the price; thankfully, both the Aero and the Excellence A do. The Diplomat-branded converters are well-made, sturdy… and will hold about 0.7-0.8mm of ink. This is not a particularly innovative system – but it makes refilling the pen as straightforward as can be. http://i.imgur.com/rjQaXaW.jpg 6. Cost & Value (9/10)The RRP of this pen is around US$195 – I’ve seen it for sale at AU$195 in various Australian stores, which is pretty good given the current exchange rate. This wasn’t available on the JustWrite website at the time I enquired about it, and still hasn’t been returned to his listings – but at my request he was happy to send it out. 7. Conclusion (Final score [sUM/6]: 9.17)I like the Aero almost as much as I like my Excellence A – they’re both wonderfully classy looking pens. The Aero is the more striking / interesting of the two in terms of appearance, but is shaded by the Excellence A because of (a) the writing experience (i.e. the slight slipperiness of the Aero’s grip), and ( concerns over the clip and the disappearing text and logo. Those are very small concerns, though – I’m really glad I invested in this pen. It won’t be everyone’s preference, aesthetically or practically – but it’s a real winner in my books.
  7. I enjoy this forum for its diversity on why people participate and generally all points of view are accepted. Pens for vintage reasons, business aspects of why or why not an ink still exists, the elegance of the nib in the hand of an amateur or steady operator, and to me the interplay between paper>nib>feed>art/print/cursive>operators skill/hand and the pleasure achieved by that interplay are reasons to participate. While ink is not the most expensive part of the hobby (on a one-by-one basis) [not talking about those with armoires for their collection] finishing the final mls of the bottle express the same elements as when your mother told you to "finish the food on your plate" [a universal axiom and my family are Germanic]. A terrific ink bottle shape survey was conducted by AndreaDuni in 2007 https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/28435-ink-bottle-shapes/ and its results are fascinating as the conical reservoir of Lamy hidden cone, MB shoe, Skrip well, and +++ were well appreciated for their Maxwell house "good to the last drop" characteristics. I recently bought three empty vintage Skrip bottles (1-118ml and 2-59ml) just to put 4.5 oz. dregs from a popular pasta ink. The bottles on ebay, empty + shipping cost the same as a new bottle with a free pen. Yet, I had to have them for economy of - well I don't know. Then I found an unusual bottle on ebay from Germany. While labeled refill, I think it's for refilling and the "ing" didn't make the cut. It has a conical bottom in the upright position for normal filling. It also has cones in the front and back for tipped filling for the last drops! This MB refill bottle in plastic is the first I have seen on the WWW and found nowhere on FPN. First comment from me is: Plastic blow molding allows this shape and current plastic formulations are highly impermeable to staining and transpiration as well as cap design and seal. I have borrowed the images from the ebay listing and can replace them with my own when the bottle arrives if the image owner objects. I look forward to your comments. http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/ODAwWDEyMDA=/z/N9gAAOSwyQtV3clV/$_57.JPG http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/ODAwWDEyMDA=/z/CNkAAOSw3ydV3clV/$_57.JPG
  8. Rotring generally doesn't seem to get a lot of love in FPN. Engineers and architects swear by their clutch pencils like Tikky and Isograph. Their design philosophy is minimalistic and somehow Rotring's writing instruments bring out their "germanness" better than Lamy IMO. The present model I got is a NOS Rotring Esprit in M nib. I had got this from ebay.in. Rotring calls this colour- "Tourmaline Green". It has a nice sleek design. This is a thin pen and grip section is ribbed for better gripping. The whole pen is made up of metal(probably aluminium) and is very light Some approximate measurements: Pen Length(capped):140mmPen Length(uncapped):126mmPen Length(posted):172mmBarrel diameter:11mm The nib is very plain looking and has M written on the side of the nib and the feed is also plain looking. The nib puts down a wet M line and writes as hard as a nail. The pen comes with a standard international short cartridge filled with blue ink. I am using it with a spare jinhao converter which fits very nicely with this pen. This pen is a no fuss pen which can be used for long writing sessions. Some people might be put off due to its slender nature. Caveat Emptor: In India, this pen is seeing a revival of sorts. I believe a lot of NOS Rotrings were brought by Indian sellers and is now sold by many Indian sellers on ebay. I had brought this from Indian ebay for the lowest possible cost available and some people mentioned that even with lowest price available on ebay, I had overpaid by almost twice as much. The only saving grace is that the pen performs very well. So, as a word of caution for FPNers, while looking for this pen, keep in mind that most probably the prices are jacked up by unscruplous sellers.

  11. Manalto

    Rotring 600

    It's easy to find comments about the rOtring 600 mechanical pencil, but not nearly as much is out there regarding the fountain pen. The 600 is discontinued and reincarnated in a similar design as the generally-acknowledged-as-inferior Newton. The 600 was available in two matte colors, black or silver, fitted with either a steel or gold nib. I was looking for the increasingly-elusive EF gold nib, so I snatched this pen up when I spotted it for sale. I find the utilitarian design of the 600 aesthetically pleasing, with its hexagonally faceted barrel/cap and the flat, folded clip precisely the width of one of the facets. The clip is the removable spring-grip type. According to the accounts I've read, the "early style" 600 has a knurled section, present on mine. It's a gentle, comfortable texturing of the surface (Princess-and-the-pea or death-gripper complaints notwithstanding), 2" long to accommodate a range of grip habits. The knurling is repeated in a band above the clip, with a window that displays the nib size for quick identification; the band can be rotated to display other sizes to match nib changes. The very top of the cap is a thin disk of gold and between it and the knurling, the trademark red ring. Knurling is once again repeated in a band at the top of the barrel, just above a rubber O-ring that's there for secure posting - if an unbalanced, absurdly long (6 3/4") pen is your thing. At 5" unposted, it's a substantial (but not heavy) extension of the hand, round at the fingertips and round where it rests between index finger and thumb. There is no breather hole in the inflexible, plain nib; "18K 750" is engraved on its face, "rOtring" on one side, and the nib size on the other side of the square fold. Performance is just magical. With an EF nib, I was resigned to some scratchiness, but somehow the Germans made this sharp-pointed pen write as slick as snot on a glass doorknob. The concentrated lubricants in the old, half-evaporated cartridge that came with the pen may partially be the reason, but this is a glorious instrument. When capping, one must line up the facets of cap and barrel or it won't close, an odd annoyance in an otherwise brilliantly-conceived pen. Presumably the professional draftsman would be engaged for extended periods of time, the ritual of capping accompanied by a leisurely glance at the clock; time for lunch. This is a tool that's more at home on a slanted drawing table than a polished mahogany desk, but equally superb in performance, for its purpose, to any luxury pen. With an EF nib this good, I'm tempted to track down a B.

  13. http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w143/nicholasyzh/StaedtlerInitiumLignum1.jpg Staedtler - a German brand synonymous with pencils and technical instruments in Europe - had launched its new "Staedtler Premium" range of fountain pens. Interestingly, the Staedtler Foundation owns all shares of the Staedtler Group since 1997. The Staedtler Foundation is "dedicated above all to the promotion of innovative ideas and the perpetuation of knowledge." and "promotes scientific research at national universities and polytechnics. It also supports cultural projects closely concerned with the subject of education." "Lumograph" pencils were standard issue way back in school, and one may still vividly remember the "Triplus" office set which contained a fineliner, ballpoint pen, mechanical pencil and highlighter. The all-in-one office set is still on sale today with the same ingenious packaging that functions both as a case and stand for the ergonomically designed triangular writing instruments. In the same light, Staedtler Premium's high quality writing implements and accessories are backed by the brand's technical expertise and inspired by the values that led to the founding of the Nuernberg based company by J.S. Staedtler in 1835. The Initium and J.S. Staedtler collections differ in that the former has an understated appearance while the latter offers sophisticated workmanship, exclusivity and design with a price to match. Make no mistake - the Staedtler Premium Initium collection is no compromise, as the following review will illustrate. INTRODUCTION: The Staedtler Initium Lignum is my first fountain pen from the German brand. It comes in a few editions named in Latin - Resina (resin) Lignum (wood) and Corium (leather). I opted for the wood version because I liked its earthy appearance, natural feel and admired the contrast between its natural wooden grain and matte chrome accents. Those who have read my previous reviews on The Fountain Pen Network would already know that I have a weakness for wooden pens and own quite a number of Japanese ones. The Initium Lignum comes in a cardboard box with an elastic closure. The box contains the pen wrapped in plastic and beneath it lies a small catalogue of the different models as well as care instructions and a guarantee booklet. Appearance & Design (8/10) – The Staedtler Initium Lignum, like most of the Initium collection, comes with minimalist German design. An exception would be the Corium Urbes line which is something like the Corium Simplex line, featuring metropolitan city skylines imprinted onto the pen's leather surface. There is even a Singapore themed pen that features a sketch of the Singapore Flyer and Marina Bay Sands. Like its name suggests, the Initium Lignum is constructed with a high quality wooden finish. Two colours are available - brownish Plum wood and beige Maple wood. Like any natural material, each piece has its own distinctive grain and no two are alike. As a personal preference, I finally chose the Plum wood over Maple. The Plum wood does have a wooden scent though the scent is not very apparent until to put your nose to it. The wood has a tactile surface and feels great to hold. It does indeed appear like a natural material. The Staedtler Mars logo appears on the top of the cap while the brand "STAEDTLER" is proudly engraved on the back. At the bottom of the cap, "MADE IN GERMANY" reminds us that the pen is constructed to the most exacting standards we have come to expect of German brands. Construction & Quality (10/10) – The Staedtler Premium Initium Lignum deserves top marks for construction and quality. The moment I picked up the pen, I could feel that there was no compromise in quality and construction, and the execution of minute details was not neglected. It didn't take more than one and a half twists to remove the cap, so making short notes will be manageable. Giving the pen barrel a light squeeze, the wood felt firmly attached to the barrel without any creaking sounds and was seamlessly integrated with the matte chrome metal parts - a testament to the technical superiority of the Staedtler brand. Everything was executed flawlessly - while removing the nib section, I could hear no screeching sounds and did not see rough edges on the inside. The nib is also well executed with an unassuming Staedtler logo and the nib size etched on it. I am thoroughly impressed by the construction quality of the Initium Lignum, given the price point. The pen is truly a tank, and will last for generations if used the way it was intended. Weight & Dimensions (8/10) – The Staedtler Initium Lignum is an extremely hefty pen, and understandably so because it is constructed of metal. It isn't extremely large or long so it would suit anyone. The cap on the Initium Lignum is particularly heavy so I feel that it does better left on the table. That being said, it is still possible to post the cap and write. I would not recommend posting it for fear of damaging the wood and due to the fact that the pen could become significantly more top heavy. The weight of a pen is often a matter of personal preference - some find heavier pens more effortless to write with while others say it causes fatigue. In my opinion, the weight and dimensions of the Initium Lignum make for pretty effortless writing. I find that with heavier pens one doesn't have to exert too much downward pressure when writing, and can glide the nib over paper. The considerable weight of the Initium Lignum does truly make a statement about Staedtler's dedication to creating serious value. Here are some technical specifications for those who’d like to know: Weight: 50 grams Length with cap closed: 10.37 cm Diameter: 1.25 cm Nib & Performance (7/10) – The Staedtler Initium Lignum is a pen that delivers in almost every department. However, it is my honest opinion that the steel nib has great potential for its out of the box performance to be further improved. In writing, I can feel slight feedback throughout the strokes, especially on lower quality copier paper. It is definitely pleasant on the smoother pages of my Japanese made Life Noble notebooks. I have observed that some fountain pen users actually do like this feedback and I am curious if the 18K gold nib on the J.S. Staedtler line is similar in feel. Visually, the Initium Lignum's steel nib is definitely well made - polished nicely and engraved with a Staedtler Mars logo. Examining it under a loupe, I can tell that there is no serious flaw or misaligned tines. I opted for the F nib because I like finer lines and have small handwriting. Ink flow is well controlled, so that compensates slightly for the feedback. The Initium Lignum steel nib is stiff, and like most of the other Steel nibs in this price range that is unsurprising. The nib isn't overly stiff though, and is still pleasant to write with. There is nothing stunning about the steel nib from Staedtler, and it would be unfair to demand a gold nib in this price range. I must say that my experiences with other German and Swiss made pens with steel nibs of similar size have been better, though some believe that steel nibs do improve after consistent use. Hopefully it will smoothen out over time. Filling System & Maintenance (8/10) – The filling system of a pen is one of the important aspects - akin to the fuel tank of a car. Fortunately, the Staedtler Initium Lignum utilises the standard European converter. One issue with some fountain pens is the tendency of the converter to rattle inside the barrel of the pen. Staedtler has ensured that the converter is firmly fitted and would not pose that issue. There isn't much else for me to say here except that it does a commendable job and has great capacity. The fact that a standard converter was used also means that maintenance is a breeze and replacements can be obtained easily and affordably. To reassure us of their commitment to quality, the Staedtler company guarantees that any defects or failure within a two year period will be repaired or replaced at no cost. Cost & Value (9/10) – The Staedtler Initium Lignum isn't a stunner but delivers compelling performance and great value for its price point. The weight of the pen together with its quality wooden finish and overall appearance do justify the cost. Being a fairly new product range, it is natural for people to make comparisons with competing brands. We should however judge each product for its own merits and give the brand a chance to show us what they have to offer. With a long history and great technical know how, I am sure that there is much more to come in the near future, and the exclusive J.S. Staedtler collection is definitely worth a look. The Staedtler Initium Lignum is priced at S$210 including tax, here in Singapore. That is approximately US$167, €130, or £102. Conclusion (Final score, 8/10) – It was pleasantly surprising to hear that Staedtler had launched a premium range of pens last year, because I never associated the brand with fountain pens but rather,pencils and technical instruments. Until Staedtler, there was from my knowledge probably only a singular German brand (which needs no mention) nearly unchallenged in its manufacture of premium range wood fountain pens. Staedtler is a welcome addition to the mix and I will be closely watching what they have to offer. The harmonious combination of wood and high quality matte chrome exudes both warmth and modernity, fitting my collection perfectly. I admire clean-cut designs with a sobering appearance. Staedtler's design is sensible and elegant - not too pretty to carry around, to be used. With timeless qualities that would never grow out of fashion, one would enjoy the pen tremendously in daily use, and for a long time to come. Background Information: You may be interested in the kinds of pens I like - I've long been an advocate of Japanese pens. I started out with my first pen, a Lamy Vista, many years ago. Eventually I progressed to the Lamy 2000 and a Sailor Professional Gear which I still write with daily today. I like wooden pens and demonstrator pens, and recently I started to appreciate Omas pens for their great nibs and construction quality. I acquired the Arte Italiana Art Deco and 360 in Vintage Turquoise, both of which are wonderful pens I am glad to have in my collection. I later also got myself the Omas 360 Lucens as it is a wonderful celluloid piece. This is my tenth review on FPN. You may have read my reviews of the Sailor Professional Gear here, Pilot Custom Heritage 92 here, Namiki Origami Crane here, Sailor Chizusugi Cedar Wood Sapporo here, Omas 360 Vintage Turquoise LE here, Pelikan Souveran M800 Tortoiseshell Brown here, Sailor 1911 Profit Hakone Yosegi-Zaiku here, Sailor Precious Wood of the World Sapporo pens here, Stipula Etruria Rainbow Yellow LE here, Omas Ogiva Vision Turquoise LE here.

  15. Hi, Does anyone have any experience with using nuuna by brandbook notebooks? They look pretty good, the paper quality seems good (90 or 120 gsm depending on range). But as the discussion in the Leuchtturm thread shows paper quality is not the be all and end all. I'm thinking about getting either one of their Punk notebooks or the Beach one.
  16. Hello! I came by a fountain pen today and haven't been able to identify it. I would be very interested to know about any information concerning this pen. I was able to find a short history of the company itself but not much about the pens they produced. I'm definitely not an expert on fountain pens (I've been researching them for a few weeks now), but I'd be very interested to know more! I'm wondering how old this pen might be, does it have any historical value, is it worth hanging onto? The pen seems to work - I've been cleaning it for the better part of the day (carefully, taking precautions and using only water) Breather hole in the cap is located opposite of the clip Nib engraving: OSMIA SUPRA 14K 585 Body engraving: 982 F (Tried to upload pictures of all details)
  17. I found this in an old German Grammar book by Longman (quite old, the publication date states 1893). It has this alphabet in the first few pages: Can anyone tell me more about this alphabet? It's quite different from the 'modern German'.
  18. Greetings, I am a antique and vintage clothing dealer, and I have recently found an interesting mechanical pencil that I would like to learn more about. I have attached a few pictures of the pencil. I have already learned about the business that is stenciled on the side, and am more interested in the pen itself. Particularly in the small glass tube that I found inside.

  20. I'm looking to buy the pen in the attached photographs, but cannot find any info about it on the internet. The seller calls it an old Greiner Deutschland pen. Perhaps some knowledgeable forum member knows what pen this is, and if it is worth the roughly 20$ the seller is asking? Regards, Jaco
