I have several St Dupont pens and they all write perfectly. As it often happens, some are more favorites than others. On one of my favorite ones, I accidentally damaged the metal section. It is more of a visual thing than a functionality problem, the nib is still good. Is there any way possible to dismantle an Olympio/D-Line metal nib section for nib swapping and cleaning? It might seem difficult, but being a person that doesn't surrender easily, I find it difficult to accept that it is impossible. Sorry if this topic has been discussed here before... Thank you all in advance!
Hello all. Im still quite new to the fountain pen game, but I have become more aware of counterfeits especially when concerning higher end pens (Montblanc for example). So I just purchased an Olympio pen for under 50 dollars, but Im skeptical as I know they are not cheap, but this one seems very used. Link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/S-T-DUPONT-GOLD-PLATED-FOUNTAIN-PEN-WITH-18K-GOLD-NR-/173803933783?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&nma=true&si=mVonmZemVjA5EGhVBUEMQtvYBn4%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc The nib doesnt seem right to me, as it looks plated rather than gold unless thats gold plated on white gold or something. Theres no hood, which is the most concerning for me, as every Olympio I see online has the hood protrusion. Maybe the nib is from another Dupont pen? I know there are different sizes of this pen. I think the smallest one is open and not hooded? I appreciate any clarification. I honestly dont regret buying the pen anyways. Its look nice, and was not expensive, so its not a big deal. Ill find out when I get it. Thank you all. Have a great day.
Hi, I realise this forum is for fountain pens. But can't find details on a ballpoint and thought someone here may know about it- or point me to somewhere where I can read more. I'm giving a S.T. Dupont Olympio Ballpoint as a gift, as I can't afford a new one I've opted for a second hand one. I believed that S.T. Dupont wasn't the sort of brand that attracted counterfeiters, however after doing some research I've become concerned. Are fake ballpoints common? Is there anyway to detect one? Should the leaf logo be etched on to the lacquer as in the case of the fountain pen? A few ads have said that the pen has the leaf logo- but show no pictures of it and all seem to be using the same text- including serial number and typo. So I'm not giving them much weight. I read on another forum thread that an article has been written about ST Dupont authenticity- but I can't get the link to work. I have attached some photos. Thank you (in advance) for taking the time to consider this, Katie *edited to add full size pics
