    Waterman Drawing Set Recognition

    Hello to all of you! I'm from Poland. I'm new here, and i would like to find some information about this stuff. While cleaning the basement i've found box with pencilcases on the photos. I have 5 of them sealed and one was slightly damaged. There are mathematical instruments as on photos. Do you know something about them? When they were made, sold, or are they valuable? Thanks for all the answers
  2. What is the name/model of this Parker fountain pen and ballpen? ...
  3. Sure there are excelent threads about Sheaffer'S Autograph. This other topic is a small tribute to one of the men whom made them possible; Dana M. Bushong. http://s28.postimg.org/47v3i5ivx/Dana_Bushong_1948_sign_Lazard.jpg http://s27.postimg.org/xwpyky4qr/Dana_Bushong_pen_autographer_Lazard.jpg http://s18.postimg.org/5dn8rsfu1/Dana_Bushong_Sheaffer_ad_Lazard_autograph.jpg http://s8.postimg.org/lpna4mvf9/Dana_Bushong_autographer_ad_Lazard.jpg http://s22.postimg.org/54xr4rydd/Dana_Bushong_Sheaffer_ad_Lazard.jpg http://s21.postimg.org/5ulymp2d3/Dana_Bushong_Sheaffer_Lazard_autograph_briefcase.jpg http://s17.postimg.org/ehmpu3973/Dana_Bushong_90th_Lazard.jpg http://s16.postimg.org/lg8k7awdx/Sheaffer_wall_counter_case_Dana_Bushong_Lazard.jpg

    Where To Find Bril Ink?

    Does anyone know where I can buy Bril ink online? Thanks!
  5. I looking to buy a new pen and I'm tied between the TWSBI Vac 700r and the Pilot Custom 74. I know there quite a lot of differences between the two, but here's why I like them: I love the gold nib and smooth writing of the Custom 74, but I really want to try out a vacuum filler and a larger ink capacity is of great convenience to me, plus I like demonstrators. The Vac 700 sells for around 7,700 rupees whereas the Custom 74 sells for about 8000 rupees. Which one should I go for?

    Help! Robert Oster Inks

    Hi, I am in love with the Robert Oster signature inks and I want to them. I live in India. Where can I get Robert Oster inks in India?
  8. Help! I really love the Robert Oster inks. Where can I get them in India? Have you guys used Robert Oster?
  9. Long time ago I've got a fountain pen from my grandfather. I think it is from after the second world war. The nib is from Bock. Does anybody know who the vendor is of this pen and what the value might be?
  10. Hi, I am planning on buying the pilot custom 74 and I am confused as to what nib I should get. I'm tied between the Fine and the Soft fine nibs. I like line variation on my pens, but I don't want something like the conventional "flex" pen and I want the nib to be fairly smooth. I will mostly use it for sketching and writing notes. Which nib should I go for?
  11. Hello! I live in India and I am looking to buy the Pilot custom 74. Is there a good website where I can buy Pilot pens and Inks for a reasonable price? Amazon sells some of them, but I was wondering if there is better, more direct way of buying them?
  12. Wow I can't believe I just risked ruining the Parker Sonnet(Gen 1 Laque Firedance) that my mom gave me, which also happens to be my first ever fountain pen. I saw that the tines were misaligned and bent the lower one, over did it 2 times(first time adjusting a nib, and it was on a pen with actual sentimental value, I know I'm stupid), had to bend it the other way around, got about 8 heart attacks, almost died of cardiac arrest, and finally did it, here are the pics. Before: https://goo.gl/KNDqVt After: https://goo.gl/Mv8ZwW
  13. Hi ... I am looking for reliable Indian websites that are selling FPs and Inks internationally ....I tried penhouse.in to buy inks but unfortunately they declined my visa card as it was international and not an Indian visa card although I used an Indian shipping address ... I hope to get some good thoughts from you Mustafa
  14. Hi everyone! I've had this case for about two days, so it's not so much a review as it is an overview, but even so, I figured I'd share. Last week, my in-laws gifted me a Pelikan M1000 as a college graduation gift, and I wanted a pen sleeve/case to keep it safe in my bag. I like to use my stuff, but I didn't want it getting all dinged up with all the odds and ends in my bag. The Pelikan case was too expensive for me, and so i headed over to Etsy to see if I could find something good. I came across a shop on there called Lepus Leather, which seemed to have some pretty good looking pen cases for about $18. They ranged from 1-5 pens in size and came in a variety of leather colors. I was afraid the big Pelikan wouldn't fit, so I messaged them and sent the dimensions, and they said they would make me a larger one at no extra charge. They also include monogramming in the cost. The work was fast, and a week later I was holding it my hand after it had come all the way from Poland. To try and rate it, I'll use the following categories: Looks : 5/5 It's really good looking. It looks really expensive. The monogramming it well done, and the font choice isn't something you see everyday. The stitching is a good color compared to the leather. Feel: 5/5 It's hard leather, and extremely thick, so there's pretty much no flex. I do photography for several leather bag makers, and can attest that it is good leather. The outside is smooth finished, and the inside is an extremely fine suede texture that should keep your pen scratch free. Functionality: 5/5 Being made specifically to hold an M1000, it does perfectly at this role. the flap top closes securely, and the case is sized ins such a way that the pen doesn't have to be forced in, but yet doesn't seem to rub or wiggle when shaken. A small cutout at the top allows the pen to be easily grasped by the finial to be removed. I also like that the back of the case is flat, so that it takes up very little space in my bag, being molded leather, it is crush resistant, and would easily protect a pen from a substantial fall. Cost: 6/5 For what you're getting, the price is insanely good. Like I said, I photograph leather goods as one of my side jobs, and so I understand the cost that goes into them. The case is very well made, and if I find myself in need of more cases, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from here again.
  15. Just saw the display of the Heritage 1914 in a Hong Kong MB boutique. Both the 333 version (orange) and 1,000 version (black). Staff are so nice to let me take photos on them. They are huge !!! Will try to get another photo with the 149 for comparison. http://www.sampanel.com/Hobby/Writing-Instrument/Montblanc-Heritage-1914/i-x2SCmTQ/0/X2/800_7448-X2.jpg http://www.sampanel.com/Hobby/Writing-Instrument/Montblanc-Heritage-1914/i-LRWSvWs/0/X2/800_7447-X2.jpg http://www.sampanel.com/Hobby/Writing-Instrument/Montblanc-Heritage-1914/i-Z8nLGb6/0/X2/800_7446-X2.jpg http://www.sampanel.com/Hobby/Writing-Instrument/Montblanc-Heritage-1914/i-QPKM4ZT/0/XL/800_7451-XL.jpg http://www.sampanel.com/Hobby/Writing-Instrument/Montblanc-Heritage-1914/i-8PZFpWJ/0/X2/800_7449-X2.jpg http://www.sampanel.com/Hobby/Writing-Instrument/Montblanc-Heritage-1914/i-Q4WsPfM/0/X2/800_7452-X2.jpg

    Jinhao 911 - Review

    Hello all. Having recently fell for hooded pens, I decided to make a few purchases, including the Hero 616. However, I was very reluctant in buying anything as I was very cautious of the possibility of inconsistent manufacturing and the element of luck involved in these purchases. While I was searching, I found this Jinhao 911 on Aliexpress on sale. The seller had no feedback or orders placed on this particular listing, but they otherwise had good feedback in general. For £1.40, I thought I'd take the chance. The main reason I chose this over the very similar yet cheaper Hero 338 is because it comes as a C/C fill rather than the aerometric Hero pen. It also claimed to come with a converter, so if the listing was true, I was in for a treat. Another thought was that Jinhao, being well-known for producing some pens that are often praised, in comparison to Hero (granted, a much older company) which, in some lines (ahem, Hero 616, ahem) was infamous for inconsistent manufacturing and very low quality control. I took the chance and placed an order for one pen and hoped I wouldn't be ripped off my penny change. A short while later, when the "sale" was over, the whole listing was removed. Aliexpress saves a snapshot of the listing when you place the order so I may still have some protection. To my surprise, a while later, the pen did actually arrive, and if I am impressed at one thing at all, it is that I was not ripped off. The pen came in a Chinese envelop that actually stated "pen" on it instead of just "gift" or "usb lead", which helped me recognise it and hide it from my wife for a while, until she eventually noticed an unfamiliar item on my table later on. The envelop had bubble wrap around the pen, which itself came in a suede pouch that it fits in. A nice first impression. Out of the pouch, you will be surprised how nicely finished it is. The brushed metal finish from top to bottom is very nicely done, including the clip and the two conical ends: the jewel and the butt. In online images, the clip finish seemed better than that of the Hero, and reality did not disappoint. On the cap, "Jinhao" is engraved in rectangular fonts, which is also very nice. The engraving is subtle, but there. It does not scream at you. On the topic of finish, I thought the engraving could be done slightly a tad better: the J had depth-jitters which, to my perfectionist eye, were noticeable, but perhaps only if I intend to look at the engraving. On the other side of the cap, engraved is the number 911 in a different font. In my opinion, it would have been better sticking to the same rectangular aesthetic for the numbers as well You want another pleasing surprise for this price point? The clip is spring-loaded. And it has good tension: it is strong, but not impossible to clip into your shirt, and if you do, it will hold there real tight. The cap is friction fit so it just pulls out with no clicks, and without it, the pen has a uniform surface with no bumps, so you can hold it near the nib or as far away from it as you like. Distentions of the pen are as follows: length capped 141mm length uncapped 125mm length posted 156mm wide at the widest point where the section meets the barrel 10.3mm medial width near where I hold it 9mm approximate weight with cap (inc.converter) 20g approximate weight without cap (inc.converter) 12g One of two things about the finish that did not strike me very positively was the threads of the barrel. They felt a bit... I don't know. Unfinished. I thought I wanted to grab a metal brush and rub them a little bit, but of course I did not do that. Mind you, this might only be a matter of "feel" not a matter of "fact". On the barrel end, the threads are in fact made of plastic. This is done by using a kind of "insert" which is glued to the barrel. The insert only makes up the threads and does not extend all the way through the barrel, so forget eye-dropper-ing. The insides are metal. Other than that, the exterior of the barrel is really nice and the jewel is well machined. On the cap-end, the same can be said about the exterior. The clip is, as we said, nice looking, springy and secure. The jewel is well-machined and perfectly centered. Pleasure to the eye. Inside of the cap is what needs some highlights. The cap is friction fit. It does not "click" or thread. Just push in, push out, on both sides of the pen. Inside of the cap there are four metal flaps that cause this friction to happen. Mind you, it is rather secure, this is not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about the possiblity of scratching your pen if you rotate it with the cap on. I am not sure whether the friction flaps have edges that will not scratch either the plastic section (oops, I said plastic), or the very nice brushed metal of the barrel when posted. This is something that we well have to leave for time to tell. Deeper inside the cap, there is the inner white sealing cap which defintely touches the nib when the pen is capped. How do I know it touches? My pen was inked and I can see a dot of ink inside. The question remains: is it plastic or silicone? Does the pen merely touch, or pierce through, that thing? I do not know. The second point I do not like about the finish of the pen is that inside the cap, behind the flaps, the cap was rather dirty/rusty. This can be easily seen if you are trying to see it but will not be seen to anyone watching you use the pen at all. And now only the main part: the section. I said this before. This is plastic. The disappointing type. But is it really disappointing? Look at your price point again. It is nicely shiny, but feels like the type that is prone to cracking or scratching easily, so might just need some care. I noticed some micro scratchings on mine already out of the box, nothing that you will probably notice in everyday use, but I will have to keep an eye on it. There is however a very tiny small little ding near the front. In the following photo, I shined a flash at it, so it looks a bit blue, but it is black. Some of the "scratches" have been made visible by the flash, and some of them are in fact just reflection from the table texture, so do not be very alarmed by this photo. The pen came with an international converter. What more do you want? I put some Parker Quink in it. I was expecting, and hoping for, a really fine line, so which of my inks did I want to see that fine? I had the black Quink or the Diamine Turquoise, but I already have the latter in one of my "modded" Hero 616's, which is also black, hooded and fine. I need variation in my life. Which leads us the very last and most important point of a fountain pen, and the question that probably everybody needs answering about any pen they could be buying any time in their life. What about the nib? At the time of this review, I only had the Hero 616 to compare it with, which came in a variety of unfinished nibs, mostly scratchy, splayed, or extra-touching. Almost all of them needed adjustment and smoothing, so what do I expect of the Jinhao? Visually, the nib seemed rather shiny, which is a very good sign. I tried it on paper without any ink, and I could see it was almost digging a trench in the paper almost with no pressure from my hand, but surprisingly, there was no scratch at all. This was also another very good sign. I know when you ink a nib it acts much smoother than when dry, so I inked the pen, and lo! Straight out of the box and with no adjustment done to it at all, the nib is indeed very fine, and is also considerably smooth for its fineness. Way to go Jinhao, I commend this! It is also sufficiently wet. I like to write with no pressure at all, barely just touching the paper, and this nib/feed catch up really well to this. One last question I like to investigate when I try a new pen is flow control. Sometimes, a pen acts a bit dryer or wetter than other times. I am still keeping an eye on this, but overall, at least with Parker Quink, I suggest this pen is considerably good and hard to believe that I was able to get it for £1.40 inc. postage. It is about double this price normally, so at about £2.80-£3.00 pounds, you will want to know you got a good bang for the buck. This is the same money you'd spend on a Jinhao fat pen (X750, X450 or 159, for example).I still think it is worth it for fine-nib and hooded nib lovers, especially if you like the flighter aesthetic, and the steel/black contrast. Personally? I never felt I like the black/steel aesthetic, and if this was't so cheap I may not have got it but that was simply due to taste. Functionally, it is a good pen, so the rest is up to you to decide.
  18. Hi all, can anyone help me to identify the following pen. A slim, burgundy pen with silver cap, having an ink window and piston filler... (I taped the filler because it was slightly leaking because of some small cracks) For further details please check the pictures. I'm rather new to fountain pens and have no clue about the brand, country of origin, age... there's no sign of any brand on the pen itself. I'm suspecting there might be some clue on the nib itself, but since I'm rather new to fountain pens I don't really know if/how I can remove the nib. Unscrewing the nib/feed section was not successful, I'm worried I would break something if I would try too hard to get it loose. (It came in my possession together with a Parker 45 Arrow) I would really appreciate getting any info about this pen. Kind regards, Pluym.

    Hello From Canada

    Finally decided to join after this wonderful place helped me figure out what my Canadian Sheaffers Compact was exactly. Long time lurker, writer, photographer. Here to learn and probably justify feeding the pen addiction. Cheers - RLR ***** www.RLRaymond.com
  20. I use a fountain pen for pretty much all the hand writing I do. The only exception is when I go in the lab. In that situation I usually carry a Parker Jotter Flighter with a Fisher Space Pen refill inside. One thing that as annoyed me ever since I started using that combo to remplace the Space Zebra (see https://penthusiast.wordpress.com/2014/07/25/the-space-zebra-f-7401/) I lost and was to lazy to make another copy of is that the tip of the Space Pen insert wiggles around when I write because the Space Pen refill has a slightly smaller diameter at the tip than the standard Quink refill. This has been a problem with multiple different Flighter Jotters. This makes writing with this ballpoint much more annoying than it should be, so I was wondering if anybody had come up with a practical solution to that problem (I've thought of putting a bit of tape around the end to make it bigger, but it seems like it will create other inconveniences as byproducts). Thank you all very much in advance, 3nding

    Montblanc Meisterstuck

    Hi! I am new to fountainpennetwork.com and really happy to have found this place. I recently came across a Montblanc fountain pen. I want to know the name and year of this pen. This is a piston filler pen and holds a lot of ink. The nib is gold (14k) and a little window is given on the body to check the ink quantity. At the end of the cap, it is inscribed "montblanc meisterstuck". Other than this I have nothing to help me identify this pen. I visited a few local dealers who hold the view that the pen is very old with a make of 1920-1930's. The pen writes buttery smooth and is a charm to write with no problems whatsoever. I am just curious as I don't believe the dealers. Check the pictures attached to get a better idea of the aforementioned pen. Regards Aditya India
  22. Hi everyone! I have a pen that writes too wet with Aurora Black and too dry with Waterman Black, so I am looking for an ink whose wetness is somewhere in between, although a bit closer to Aurora Black in terms of wetness. Also, if it is a really dark black that's a plus! Thank you all very much in advance!
  23. Hi Everyone, I'm new to FPN and pen collecting in general. I am particularly interested in ballpoint pens... I'm a full-time student and I do most of my work in ballpoint. I have a few pens that I've bought used, and I want to know what you think are the best ballpoints you have purchased/used. These can be at any price point and a pen can be your favorite for any reason. My favorite pen (by far) is my Classique Montblanc Meiserstuck, followed by a few designer pens (Tiffany and Givenchy). I have a Waterman Maestro and a Waterman Phileas that I really like. And on the lower end of the price scale I still think Cross makes handsome, dependable, and inexpensive ballpoints. What are your favorites? Any ideas for my next pen?
  24. "What?" "Fountain pens?" "Why?" These were the three most common questions that I was confronted with, in the past few weeks. Friends and relatives simply could not believe that I had decided to revive an age-old fascination over a simple, yet beautiful piece of technology. Some may have wondered why I was willing to stain my fingers and clothes, just to relive my childhood necessity -- fountain pens. Especially at a time and era when liquid ball (gel) pens were efficient and affordable. Well, truth be told, they had a point. Simple and affordable fountain pens manufactured in India and sold here in Goa are almost non-existent nowadays and finding lovers of fountain pens in Goa almost seemed an exercise in futility. Their views were even backed by those in the stationery business. "Only one in about 100 people come to our sop to buy a fountain pen. Those rare customers are the high and mighty, who come in to buy expensive fountain pens," admitted the owner of a stationery shop in Panaji, the capital city of Goa. I realized that I wasn't likely to find too many lovers of fountain pens in Goa. May be, even from across the globe. And then, much to my pleasant surprise, I found Fountain Pen Network, the world's best forum for those passionate about fountain pens! I am a 43-yr-old journalist residing in Goa-India and I still cherish fond memories of the fountain pens that I used and/or owned during my school days in the eighties. Since my parents worked and lived in the Arabian Gulf while I was at school, I had access to the more popular fountain pens of the time. The cheaper foreign fountain pens were Pilot and Hero, while the more expensive pens were Parker and Sheaffer. The Indian pens that I used included Camlin, Pinto and Selza. These Indian fountain pens were simple in construction and cheap to buy. The beauty of these Indian fountain pens was that spare nibs of various shapes and sizes were easily available and affordable at almost all general stores in the locality. Ink bottles were not expensive either. Right from my school days, I realized that I preferred medium to broad nibs, rather than fine or extra fine. My handwriting has always been comparatively large and broad nibs suited my writing style. I must admit yielding to the lure of roller ball pens and gel pens when I pursued college and university education. After all, these roller ball pens and gel pens were far more convenient and less messy. When I entered the field of journalism in the mid-90s, my passion for fountain pens was reignited and within the next few years, I went on to buy some Parker Vector fountain pens and used them extensively in my profession. Then, I took a break from fountain pens for the second time in my life. For the second time, ball point pens took over my life for the same two reasons: convenience and economics. With the arrival of PCs, mobile phones, laptops and tablets, much of my writing was not dependent on fountain pens. The few fountain pens in my possession began to remain for a longer period in my drawers and the ink bottles (the Chelpark range of turquoise blue, violet, sapphire blue and black) were eventually -- and regrettably -- discarded to make space in my stationery drawer. About a month ago, I felt the desire to pursue a childhood interest. Something that is cheap, replaceable and fun to use. And for the third time in my life, I turned back to fountain pens. To my good fortune, I happened to notice that a colleague in my new media organisation also had a passion for fountain pens. We got talking and interacting on fountain pens and he referred me to a website dealing in fountain pens (asapens.in, etc.) and some other related websites. By now, I was also scouring for the old fountain pens and inks that I had used during my previous two stints with fountain pens. A visit to some stationery shops made me realise, much to my surprise, that most of these Indian fountain pens were not in existence any more, that Chelpark ink was not available in Goa any more and that, the demand for fountain pens was almost zero. Or 1 in 100 customers, as a shop owner explained to me. So much had changed in the world of fountain pens within a decade or so. But that has not deterred me from pursuing my interest in fountain pens. On the contrary, it has increased my interest fountain pens. In the past few weeks, I bought a few cheap fountain pens (Camlin, Reynolds) from stationery shops in Goa andd even purchased some from the internet (Jinhou 599A , Pilot Varsity disposable fountain pens from the USA). I then went back to my stationery drawer, pulled out all my old fountain pens, some originally owned by my wife, father and mother-in-law. My collection: 21 fountain pens. 1. Camlin 47 2. Camlin Elegante 3. Camlin Mini 4. Camlin Sleek 5. Chelpark Conqueror 6. Chelpark Emperor 7. Cello disposable fountain pen 8. Jinhou 599A (2 Nos) 9. Parker 45 10. Parker Vector (2 Nos) 11.

Waterman 18k 750 Plaque or G Made in France Except for the Waterman and Sheaffer fountain pens (which were originally owned by my dad), the other fountain pens in my collection are cheap -- no more than Rs 200 (US $3) apiece. I hope to read and learn more about fountain pens from the Fountain Pen Network, Thanks, Melvyn Sorry about the poor quality of the snap, which was clicked with an illuminated tube light a short while ago (3 AM).
  25. Just got this and love it. Just about to ink it up.....it's so tactile. Gorgeous. Parker 51 with 'snail' bands....on the cap, and the barrel. Lovely to just hold and fouter with. The base is blank, a solid brass circle, which could be engraved.....any suggestions on how this might be done/by whom/where? I'm not planning to do it now, but might in the future,more than likely with the symbol on my ring which is in one of the photos(Order of the Unified Heart.....Leonard Cohen fans' symbol) Alex
