    A Conid On Its Way

    I finally got a few photos of my fountain pen from Belgium! This is going to be the longest week of waif ever!
  2. Hello to everyone. I found three really similiar looking fountain pens at my love's flat. I wonder what brand they could be or how old they must be, what their engraved subtitles refer to and so on. I took photos and luckily I can read small letters from close, so I can write what I found engraved on their tips. I will describe them according to their order on both photos, they are in the same order on both. On the left, no pattern: has a "Spirit of St Louis" graving at the bottom edge of the lid. On the point "Iridium point" and Germany are engraved with some nice spiral-decorate

    Unknown Fountain Pen

    Hello, I am currently assisting in an estate sale of a small collection of fountain pens. I have been able to find information on most of them, but this one eludes me. If anyone knows who this was made by or any other information about it, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank You

    Dubious Montblanc Pen - Pro's/con's List

    Hi Forum, My apologies that my first post is a "help identifying" post - but I hope to show that I at least put some initiative in researching this pen before approaching you guys. Pro: The pen has a serial number on the back of the top. The serial number begins with "HR"Con: After a thorough Google search, I cannot find any other pens that begin with "HR" - in fact, most of my search results are composed of Montblanc's Human ResourcesPro: Has Montblanc emblem on the top of the pen. Pro: Inside the clip it reads: "GERMANY" <signature>* Metal"Con: Doesn't say PIX.Pro: Newer pens
  5. I've been reading some threads on the pros and cons of the Moleskine-Fountain Pen Connection, but here I'd like a specific something: Im a huge fan of Leonard Cohen, and got a couple of limited edition Moleskines. Still drooling over them. Meantimes, I'd be grateful for any suggestions for specific pens, or inks. Im thinking a fine nib is best...? Photo at the bottom.... Alex
  6. Faber-Castell Ambition Review (Medium in Black Resin) I have owned this pen for a year now, and it has been used very heavily during that time. It was the first pen I bought and chose myself and it was a sort-of grail at the time. Th pen's design is very minimalistic. It's all straight and cylindrical. The cap is made of chrome with plastic internals, but it's very heavy. The barrel is made from brushed "precious" resin. After a year, the brushing has worn away, so it looks more polished. Still doesn't look smooth and glossy, though. The pen was breathtaking when it was new. The resin
  7. I have recently acquired a Karas Kustoms Ink with a fine palladium nib. The pen writes great and the fine line is excellent, but it is very very wet. Since I bought this pen to use as a versatile everyday pen in the physics lab, school, for journaling and every other writing need you can imagine, I don't really have much control over the paper I will be using it on. Therefore I need to find a black ink that is both dry and adaptable. I have already tried Pelikan Brilliant Black in it, but it still bleeds through on a lot of different kinds of paper. NOW THE MOST IMPORTANT PART AND THE HEAR
  8. Hi! I have recently gotten back to using fountain pens after having used them in middle school, where it was mandatory. I find some old lens lying around the house and though i could identify most of them, I have no clue about this one. Please help! Im new to FPN and this is my first post, so if there is some other thread where I should be posting this, please direct me to that. Thanks in advance.
  9. I am currently hesitating between two pens: a Karas Kustoms Ink with a fine gold Buck nib, black anodised section and tumbled raw aluminium or polished aluminium barrel or Sheaffer Targa silver or black with a gold nib also. Both are metal c/c pens and both come in the same price range (unless you look at the really expensive Targas). One is more classic, the other is more modern. One is slimmer and lighter the other is chunky and heavy without being Jinhao 159-kind of heavy. What I am looking for is a pen that I will love to carry around without fear of dropping it and destroying the finish
  10. Full disclosure: I have no affiliation with Birmingham Pens beyond being a happy customer. Birmingham is a small Pittsburgh-based concern — apparently a one-man operation, in fact. Based on my dealings, all very positive, I would like to see the proprietor, Nick, get the support that he needs and deserves from our community to maintain and grow his business. Back when Birmingham Pens was known as “XFountainPens,” I became a fan of their custom Chesterfield line of inks, and especially the “antique” colors. In truth, I wasn't initially interested in the new Birmingham ink line when it appeared
  11. Hello! I was just given this pen by my mother-in-law (from France) who knows I love anything vintage. I've wanted to get a MB pen for quite some time and always admired her collection. I'd love to get new ink for this so I can actually use it, but... I don't know what model it is. I even contacted MB and was told by a rep that she didn't think it could be an MB pen because they never made one like this. (I think she must be rather new there to not realize there's a lot of pens they USED to make, but do not anymore.) So on to the details: It appears to be chrome over brass (or another non-ma
  12. Gday everyone, Long time lurker first time poster I'd like to jump straight into it and go ahead and say that I've been having problems (or should i say A problem) with my Noodlers Bulletproof black. It's an absolutely wonderful ink in pretty much every way, except one. My 'Online German: Event' Pen doesn't seem to agree with the Noodlers ink. (I have a Noodlers Flex pen inked up in Noodlers black which works perfectly fine) I've inked it up through a converter and for about, I would say the first page and a half of writing, it writes fine. It flows well with no skipping etc.
  13. Graf Von Faber Castell Pen of the Year 2017 (Vikings) PVD Edition The version with a tough anthracite-coloured PVD coating has a particularly masculine appeal. Matt-grey smoked oak – the preferred wood for building the Viking ships – stands in exciting contrast to the gleaming metal parts of fountain pen and roller-ball pen, which change their appearance with every movement. A grey shimmering smoky quartz adorns the cap of all writing implements of this edition. Each of these writing implements is presented in a brightly polished black wooden case. A certificate bearing the s
  14. I got this beautiful little Gladiator ringtop - French make, embossed silver band, 18k nib, but I noticed that some of the threads are separated where the barrel and section meet. I'm proposing to introduce a small amount of Gorilla Glue into the cracks via an insulin syringe, and hold it in place with dental floss. We have a fly-tying magnifier, too...where did I get all this stuff? Any other suggestions or alternatives? I could send it out but it's just come back. She's a harsh mistress, this pen.
  15. So, I got this retractable Victorian dip pen today. It's my first dip pen. It writes nicely and I am enjoying it. I was told this was made in late 1800's or early 1900's, but I don't have any other information. I appreciate it if you could help me identify this pen
  16. A few years ago, I bought a pen very similar to these pens (almost identical to the first one, but it had one color bubble, not three): - https://www.amazon.de/Wedo-256126-Vierfarb-Kugelschreiber-Sichtwahl-Druckmechanik-auswechselbaren/dp/B002K8X43K/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=1500814383&sr=8-13&keywords=vierfarbkugelschreiber - http://www.ebay.de/itm/PELIKAN-4-1-Vierfarb-Kugelschreiber-4-Color-Ballpoint-Red-Chrome-1972-VINTAGE-/272734985022?hash=item3f80459b3e:g:MPgAAOSw4CFYnE46&autorefresh=true At a flea market. I LOVED it and used it every day... until it was stolen off my

    Is This Even Possible !?

    Today I've found this on Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GU1VVE/ref=olp_product_details?_encoding=UTF8&me= It's a Pilot Heritage 92 for... less than £10 !!! This isn't real, right? Has to be a scam... In any case I ordered 4 pens I always wanted since Amazon is great with refunds. Any thoughts? should I cancel straight away and not bother?
  18. Ink View: Ivy 108 - Papier Plume’s Chicago Pen Show Exclusive! I first came to know about this and the Lake Michigan Summer a couple of weeks ago while conversing with Papier Plume on new upcoming inks. At that point the inks weer already created and I was just at the tail end of it. I was lucky enough to receive a small sample of each. As teh main batch hadn't been done yet, I got what was left from what was sent to other reviewers. Still I was happy to tryout these inks, specially since I dont have an Ink Hookup at the Chicago Show to get me some these ink bottles. Still! Many thanks to P

  20. Hi all. This is my first post so I might as well greet you pen and nib lovers in here! I am a drummer / composer / arranger and I enjoy either reading or writting music by hand, a habit that that i guess has grown out of studying scores and books that were partly or entirely written by hand. Even now, I supply the musicians with sheets that I personally write, being original score of mine or copies of clients. Quite recently I came across a video on youtube, where a famous copyist/ percussionist uses this particular pen/ nib that I immediately fell in love with. I am posting two vid
  21. Hello! I hope that this is the right place to post this. I'm sure some of you have heard now about the DC Pen Show's first ever Pay-It-Forward Table dedicated to giving back to the community! Krystle Azer of SquishyInk (creator of the Hippo Noto) will be at the table as well, running it with me. There will be starter kits available for new FP users, as well as items for FP veterans. So if you have any pens or pen paraphernalia that is collecting dust, we are happy to pass it along to other members of the community. The FP community is one of the very best things about the hobby, and t

    Best Pen Case?

    Hi! I'm starting to build my collection, but want to take multiple pens out with me, how ever, as I am a student, I don't want to be lugging around a large case to keep my pens safe. So what would you guys suggest, I'm after a small(ish) case, which can hold 3 pens which will protect them from becoming scratched or crushed within my bag. Hopefully something like this exists. If not, anything similar will help. And all answers appreciated. Many thanks Tom
  23. Hi guys, Somehow I am into brown-color pens these days. So far I only have Parker Vacumatic with golden brown color. I can't decide on which brown pen I should get next. Would you mind showing me the brown-color pens you have? Thank you!!
  24. Hello all! I don't really know which category this falls into, so i'll post it here. I'm looking for an ink that is dye based, relatively fade/water resistant, that does not corrode a pen if filled for an extended time (let's say 2-3 weeks) and is blue/blue-black/black (or any other color you would consider as work appropriate). Any recommendations?
