    Blu Mare - Rohrer & Klingner

    Rohrer & Klingner operates since 1892. At the moment it's the fifth generation of the family that manages the company. I guess that after 122 years they know what they are doing. R&K inks offer amazing quality for amazing price. In my country a bnottle of R&K ink costs 5-6 $. I know it's a bit more expensive in America, yet I believe the price is still reasonable. I find it interesting that Rohrer & Klingner seems to focus mainly on the content and not on the bottles. Inks come in industrial looking bottle taht is quite handy but there's just nothing fancy about it.
  2. Pictures at bottom..... Just wondering if anyone can identify or give any information.....I've misplaced my loupe and have had a bad eye infection, so am not great at looking closely. I don't think it's of any value, and can't even remember where or when I got it; eBay, I think, for not much, but it's such a lovely smooth writer, never any trouble starting even when not used for a while.mi got it because it has an ink window, which I love. Any information gratefully received. Alex.
  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.jp
  4. I preset you a German exercise book for kids to facilitate their handwriting. I thought this might be useful for some folks. http://www.hjmedia.de/K2/Schulausgangsschrift.pdf
  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....

    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

  8. 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
  9. 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 me

    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

  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 pre
  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.

    Caran D'ache Noodlings

    Caran d'Ache in an unknown German firm pen on Clairefontaine paper.
  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
