    Something Fell Out And I Couldn't Find It

    Howdy y'all, this beauty caught my eye while accepting donations at a thrift store. I knew nothing about fountain pens at the time other than loving the way it felt around my neck and except for exploring the Caren line of pens I'm at the same level of ignorance. I'm aware that I need something to deliver ink and would appreciate suggs on which vendor I should use. I would also be very grateful for any additional information I can use to brag about my sweet pen. I opened the pin in the parking lot where I got it and I'm almost positive the small piece fell out that I could never find. I m
  2. Sometimes I see pen auctions with 14k nibs that appear as if the usual iridium tipping has been worn down to nothing. The cost of retipping is often more than the cost of the pen, so am unlikely to pursue the better option for cheaper pens. With an untipped steel nib, I can pretty much grind it to a stub and expect it to last a long while. With more delicate gold, however, I'm not sure how long an untipped nib will be good for. Does anyone have experience with this? Will an untipped gold nib likely last a good while?

    24K Gold/titanium Alloy

    Nibs are traditionally made of gold. But the gold is typically alloyed to give it more springiness. Experts like Richard Binder and John Mottishaw usually state that the best nib alloy is 14K gold, which is, in fact, only 58% gold. This makes the nib more springy than a purer-gold nib... but there's a price, in that the nib is now more susceptible to corrosion than, say, a 21K gold nib. Gold may be a noble metal, but the copper that alloys it down to 14K is not. I just stumbled over an interesting tidbit in Wikipedia, on its page for Titanium: if you alloy gold with a very small amount of tit

  6. Hi folks, I don't know about you, but I have heard some rumours that J Herbin was reformulating Ocean Blue ink...must have been Stormy Grey's success So, I was expecting blue ink with silver particles...but it looks like they have opted out for gold... No indication on the bottle (of course) Here are few quick snaps of their very last batch:

    Montblanc Leather Pouch Question

    Hi, I'm getting a Montblanc Meisterstück Classique pen in either gold or platinum (can't decide!) and would be grateful for any advice regarding my concerns with Montblanc's leather pouches. I already have a Montblanc Meisterstück 1 pen leather pouch but having read through some threads on this site I'm concerned about the risk of scratching the pen (especially as the 'precious resin' appears to be vulnerable to surface marks) and possible long-term corrosion to the gold plated parts such as the clip caused by the chrome tanned leather. I checked Montblanc's website which does not disclose
  8. Hi friends, I am hoping for some help identifying this Sailor pen that I got as a graduation gift last year. It seems to be made from resin and has the 1911 14k nib. I'm not familiar with Sailor pens at all. This was bought in Japan (if it makes a difference). I currently don't have a converter in this pen, and I'm wondering which Sailor converter to use with this pen as it's quite short in length. Thanks in advance!
  9. I've just completed my simple review of the latest twelve new inks in the Shimmer range, from Diamine. Six with gold particles and six with silver. Although I don't like 'particle' inks, per se, this new release is actually superb. Let's be honest though; it's purely my opinion and I don't really think that any judgement should be made before trying them out for yourselves. As with any ink/pen/paper combination. But, we should all know and respect that... There are a dozen new colours as I mentioned and I will just post a simple scan of my test. I've recently had to get a new phone but it ha
  10. Hello everyone, just recently I somehow discovered the fact that I own a few nice pens. I am not an expert of any kind when it comes to pens, but I have a general love of handwriting and of beautifully crafted things, amongst those also fountain pens, especially piston fillers. In the age of computers not much work is left to accomplish by handwriting. Some cards, some signatures... Nevertheless I rediscovered some of my old pens and gave them a good simple cleaning (no disassembling). The little black OMAS belongs to the ones I used to write with a lot, simply because writing with this pe

The collection is composed by three different editions that reflect the novelist's life and journey. The first of the editions "The Soldier" is already available at Iguana Sell.

    What Is This?

    I came across this in an antique shop on Maine. Overall in really good condition, probably a new sac and some polishing. I did take the opportunity to dip it and play and the nib is awesome; think, paint brush with ink, incredible. I just don know what it is. Any help is appreciated. Here is what I know: Stamp on barrel states 1/40. Pat Pend. Nib has 14K warranted. Made in USA. I've never had a noodle in my hand, but the unrestored nib flexes out extremely easily with some dipped ink. I haven't been able tobidentify the pattern, but it is consistent on both pieces.

  18. Introduction During the early phases of my renewed fascination for all things fountain pens there was one model that reigned supreme amongst my list for grail pens and that was the Sailor King of Pens. Everything about it seemed to be just about perfect – the torpedo shape, the ebonite material and the large sized fabulous Sailor nibs. It was just a matter of time before I got one for myself. Two sailor pens and their less than perfect nibs later, my enthusiasm for the KOP started to wane a bit. I had realized that the tip shape and design of the stock sailor nibs (Naginata Togi or Nagahara
  19. Yesterday i've found this little Waterman's Ideal 42 1/2v at a flea market. The only imprint it has - except from the date and the initials which i think were made from the original owner - is "Waterman's Ideal 18 K.R." on the cap and "42 1/2V" on the twisting knob. The nib is a #2 made in USA, so i can suppose the rest of the pen is made in USA too. Can someone tell me more about the kind of gold overlay of the pen? There are no hallmarks of any kind, can i assume it is rolled gold?
  20. Anyone have any idea what this is worth on the open-market, and should be insured for ?
  21. I found this one for a suspiciously good price... it looks like a Burgundy Cruise Collection but the trim is gold, none of the Cruise Collection have gold trim. And yet... here's what looks like a genuine (but vintage) Montblanc burgundy with gold trim that has a similar shape: http://www.ebay.com/itm/EUC-BOX-Montblanc-Classic-Burgundy-Bordeaux-Gold-Ballpoint-Pen-VINTAGE-RARE-/172121724109 So -- what are your thoughts. Is the 'mystery' pen real or fake?
  22. Howdy FPers, A new PIF: This will likely be my last PIF for several months. I have a Platinum 3776 Century Bourgogne Fountain Pen. It is considered to be a demonstrator. It's a cartridge/converter, and includes the converter. The specs: 5 1/2 " capped, 24.6 grams with the converter installed. Of course it can use bottled ink or Platinum brand carts. This PIF includes postage paid worldwide . I purchased this Platinum when I first got under the spell of pen, paper and ink Addiction. I'd never bought a pen from the Eastern producers. I didn't know that the nibs were almost a full size smaller
  23. While examining a recent acquisition - a Conklin ringtop - I noticed a crack beginning across the breather hole. Mr. Minuskin informed me that with use, the tines will eventually fall off unless someone repaired it...him, for instance. So I began to look around for a replacement nib, and saw one on the Five-Star site, which had a very similar crack. This, I thought, was interesting: that a cracked nib would still be saleable. I wondered if the quality of these nibs was sufficiently special that we'd want to keep them in use. Has anyone had this sort of experience with Conklin nibs? Are the
  24. Can you help ID this pen? Found it in the study the other day... Sorry about the bad pictures.
  25. It will be nice if this gets pinned... hoping for a kind Mod to help out. This thread will be used to update the list as necessary. Swatches will follow. SWATCHES...... (up to 63 for now) C.
