  1. Does anyone know how to disassemble a Stipula Verrazzano? Or any of Sipula's retractables (Da Vinci, Iris)? Mine leaks, and I would rather try myself than go through the process of sending it back to Stipula.
  2. Hi all I made a comparison of two Stipula stub nibs in the "Of Nibs & Tines" section of this forum. Stipula is very often discussed here, so I thought it would be of general interest to post about it here as well. Link to the comparison: A comparison between Stipula 1.1 steel and 1.1 14k stub nibs - Of Nibs & Tines - The Fountain Pen Network Best Ruben
  3. I know that many of you already know this (all those who receive my newsletters! ) But now that all my subscribers have had the chance to choose colors and models, I would like point out to all forum people this close-out sale of the last Stipula Vedo, at approx 50% of their real price. The series is called Vedo because all the fountain pens have a transparent section on the barrel; both those with converter and those with piston filling system, where the whole tank is transparent. For the updated availability, I refer you to my website: anyway, there are still a couple of black piston filled pens and some pink ones; while converter filled pens are still available in all colors. And more, there are also rollerballs and ballpens, in the same colors. The offer includes a free ink bottle each fountain pen. For ballpen and roller, a small complimentary Moleskin-type notepad. All the pens come in their beautiful Stipula red boxes, with regular warranty. It seemed to me ideal for small gifts... (Please be patient with the photos, I took them myself with my mobile!)
  4. Hi All Hope you are staying safe with coid19 I inked up my pen and now want to clean and change the ink The instructiosn dont explain how i (1) remove nib (2) pulloff the whole nib section to clean the barrel. There are no videos on youtube. Some comments here talk about old and new Stipulas so I am not sure whether to just pull out the nib. Help appreciated/gary

    Which Brands Have Flex Nibs?

    For three years, I've had a Stipula Splash fountain pen. I like the V-Flex nib and the piston ink filler. I don't like the size -- it's tiny. I don't like that it railroads when pressed hard. So, what other pens have flex nibs? Price matters but right now I'm just gathering information and wouldn't want to limit the candidates to any particular price range. I know that Esterbrook has a flex nib. Who else does?

    Back In The Game After Years!

    Formerly known here as "handlebar", my new name is more apropos as Celticshaman. After many years away from the pen world and all that entails, I have slowly been working my way back. Work, life, my business (photography ...Dragon Digital Photography) and other interests crept in and stole away most of my time. And, the industry was changing, not for the better. Coming back now, I see a LOT has changed!! I still have some penpals (always looking for new ones if interested!) and getting back into pens,ink,paper and the history of writing. I reopened my once archived Omas group on Facebook for anyone interested. https://www.facebook.com/groups/200590740889/ I look forward to getting caught up !! Seumas Dòmhnal Ross
  7. I was frustrated on a pen I bought: a Stipula Etruria Gallicana in Oronero color with a stiflexnib. This pen was gorgeous at first sight, but some drawbacks refrained me from using it daily: -It could only hold a small amount of ink: it is a CC filler. -The feed was a disaster as it was not suitable for a flex nib like the stiflex nib. -The pen was made of acrylic and i love the warm feeling of ebonite. After months of drawing plans and attempting on making parts for the pen I finally succeeded! This pen is made from ebonite rods from Nikko ebonite in ripple orange. The filling system is a Vac-Fill, a copy of the Wahl-Eversharp Doric second generation filling system. The cap doesn't post. The clip is sculpted from solid 316L stainless steel. Cap jewel and end barrel jewel are made of a gem grade rhodolite garnet embedded in 316L stainless steel. The cap ring is made of a solid rod of 316L stainless steel, engraved by hand with carbide tipped burr, with an artificially rusted finish. The nib is an original 14k Stiflex nig from Globus (Stipula) and is quite a wet noodle. The feed is in hard rubber from a destroyed Omas 360. Here are the pictures, it is now my daily writer!

    Stipula Nibs

    I recently interviewed Luca Viti - Stipula's business partner and head of the pens’ department - because we re-started a business relationship after a few years off. As I wrote in the interview's introduction, "I missed the Stipulas. They are beautiful, interesting, and charming pens. They remind me of those prim-and-proper ladies: they won’t surprise you with the latest fashion, but will never look out of place." Well, apart from the aesthetics, I found out that Stipula now produces its own nibs, because a few years ago bought an old nib factory with all old equipments and started producing home-made nibs. Not only gold. They also make a steel calligraphic nib (they called it V-Flex) that is more flexible and performing than many gold nibs. Here you find the whole interview: http://blog.giardino.it/2019/12/stipula-is-back/
  10. Having just received the Stipula Passaporto Superleggera I thought a quick side-by-side review with the previous generation might be of interest (especially with the thread looking for a pocket pen). This also turns out to be my first attempt with images uploaded to FPN * (hmmm, not visible in "My Media" so I seem to need to do this the long way) First: packaging: I compare the box my Passaporto LE ebonite came in to that of the Passaporto Superleggera Stealth. The LE ebonite arrived in a box with enough space for four Passaporto pens, with a pull out drawer containing the manual, an eyedropper, and an international short cartridge. The Superleggero Stealth comes in a much smaller foam-lined tin, also with an eyedropper, along with two vials of ink (appear to be a blue and a green) Side-by-side images. While the capped and posted images are not to the same scale**, the capped LE and Stealth were on the same original photo, and the posted clear models were also together on a second image (as will be obvious, the older clear model is currently in my rotation -- I have not inked the new ones yet). The Superleggero models have practically no markings. "Stipula" appears on the nib along with some leaf markings. That is it for the current model. It has a metal-look section which tapers from the barrel to the short nib. Given the presence of mold lines on the threads, and on the cap band, I presume both are chrome-plated plastic and not actual metal. The cap has a noticeable taper. The Superleggero is an eyedropper-only pen. The clear and stealth models were each obtained for a mere $40 The previous generation pens have the Stipula leaf embedded in the cap band, where it barely serves to reduce the pen's tendency to roll across surfaces. "Stipula" and "Made in Italy" are engraved on the body. The section is plastic (ebonite for the LE) and has a flare at the end which would help to prevent one's fingers from slipping onto the nib itself. The nib is longer and slimmer. The cap and barrel have similar tapers (almost none) with rounded ends. The interior of the cap, on the clear model, appears to be frosted -- possibly left-overs from machining. While I'm using it as a eyedropper, the section does contain a nipple compatible with international standard short cartridges. I paid $125 for LE, and $100 for clear -- nine years ago. I understand the first generation pens did not have threads on the end of the body for posting; all of mine are threaded. I should have included a ruler in the photos. The previous generation, capped, comes in at 3.6 inches (well, 3.590 according to the calipers, but what's 1/100 of an inch... Posted, it is 4.7 inches. The Superleggero capped comes in at 3.7 inches... Posted, it is 4.9. *** * Normally I upload images to web-space allotted to my Earthlink email accounts -- but at the present moment I can neither connect to them via FTP nor display them. I'm hoping it is just a down server and not that Earthlink had deleted the web space (Last summer I had to downgrade from full DSL service to an email-only service, as my ISP changed to ATT U-Verse). ** It was a pain in Photoshop to select the clear models and not the background, so I could move the images onto a single grey backdrop, the caps faded into the white paper upon which I'd photographed them. I had to paint the selection region, rather than rely on "Magic Wand" automation. *** I really should have grabbed the dial caliper rather than the vernier -- it has a drive wheel; pressing the friction lock of the vernier and trying to push it closed when there is only an inch extending to be gripped is not easy.
  11. I just received a lovely Etruria Ambra that I bought on eBay. It’s the older piston model with the straight section. Unfortunately, it came with a broken feed. Does any anyone know of a replacement that would fit? A standard Bock #6? I also would have to remove the other half of the feed from the section. I was thinking of using a small screw to pull it out. Is that a good idea or is there a better way? Many thanks! David
  12. I have a Stipula FPN pen. If there were several series, this is from the first series. It's never written well; the flow stops. I don't like flossing tines, and slightly spreading the shoulders hasn't worked. Who can reliably repair this?
  13. Ink Review: STIPULA CALAMO SAPPHRON I have wanted to try several of the Stipula Calamo inks for some time after hearing about them. The inks are handmade in Italy and come in this great 70mL bottle. The Review above was scanned, and the color is "washed out". The ink color is closest on the writing sample on Tomoe River. I wrote the Review portion several days after receiving the ink sample. At first, I wasn't sure if I would like it. Since that time I have used this ink for a couple of weeks in several pens and it behaves wonderfully in all of them. I have been pleasantly surprised that this ink feathers very little even on cheap papers with minimal showthrough and minimal bleedthrough. The color is a warm yellow-orange that is just soft enough to be pleasant. It lays down light but darkens as it dries. Sold in 70mL light resistant glass bottle for $17.10 to $19.00 depending upon dealer. PROS: Well behaved on all papers Shading is wonderful Color is nicely saturated IMO Dries fairly quickly CONS: For some it may be undersaturated Not water resistant Not a versatile color (I doubt many would use this in a business office) May be too light in an EF/F nib Caution: While I only bought a sample of Sapphron, I did buy several bottles of other colors of Stipula ink. When first opening the ink, there is a plastic stopper in the neck of the bottle. I would recommend when loosening the stopper to place a large paper towel over the bottle and gently and slowly loosen the stopper out in order to equalize air pressure (think opening a bottle of champagne). The first bottle I opened I started to loosen the stopper and it popped out along with drops of blue ink everywhere. Thankfully I did over the bathroom sink and was able to clean all the ink up. The second bottle I opened I put a paper towel over the bottle as I gently and slowly loosened the stopper. It again popped out, but this time with less mess. Overall Score: 8+ Conclusion: This is a very nice ink. It is very well behaved in every pen I have used it in. It can be a bit light in EF/F nibs, but even in a fine nib this ink shades beautifully. The color is fairly light, much lighter than Pilot Iroshizuku Yu-Yake. Even though it is not an ink I would use everyday, I will be purchasing a full bottle.

  17. Here is the second episode of the podcast series, I have also done some small video clips in-between. This is an interview with Ken Jones from Yafa, and there is an exciting giveaway! Again I would love to hear any and all feedback. I did shorten this one up a bit as requested. We did showcase many new Pineider, Marlen, and Conklin pens in the video!
  18. Good morning - Im an old time FP member on Reddit but this is my first post on fpnetwork. I bought a used Stipula Etruria that looks like it has some grease behind the piston on the acrylic on top of the silver shiny part. Wondering if this is normal?? And if not, is there a way to disassemble the piston unit? Thanks!

    Newbie With A Stipula

    First of all: hello. Newb here. Please be gentle with me. (but not too gentle ) So I got hypnotized by the Stipula Etruria Rainbow Prisma. i clicked "BUY" before I knew what I was in for. Fortunately it's a lovely pen so far and I do like it quite a bit, but what would make me love it is a Stub nib. Does anyone have any experience changing nibs in an Etruria Rainbow? Anything I should know? I am hesitant to do anything without some idea of what I'm doing. Any tips or advice?
  20. I'd been meaning to do this comparison for some time, but either didn't have the time, some pens wouldn't cooperate, or the inks wouldn't come out as I thought they should. Missing are Vert Empire and Perle Noire, orphaned by an uncooperating Kaweco Sport and a Penmanship's converter I gave away. I have learned a lot on these forums so I hope this also helps others, particularly when comparing specific inks, like blue greens, blue purples, reds and oranges. The paper is HP 32 lbs, which all pens glide on, except for the Waterman le Man 100 with Mandarin which doesn't like this paper and sometimes stops flowing - there is always one! Oh and a Platinum Cool only starts reliably upside down, on any paper, I thought I'd cured it but nope. The differences between Souten, Kon Peki and Équinoxe 6 are subtle, and depend greatly on the nib and paper, and even on the pen and the time of day, as evaporation will change their colour drastically; but to my eye they clearly go from more blue to more green; they are all spectacular, Souten does have a funky smell, luckily I have a cold so I can't smell it as much right now, none of my other inks smell of anything. Some inks just make their pens glide, particularly Verde Muschiato and Verdigris. Some inks took a long time to show their true tone, like Myosotis (can look too dark, turns into a blue black), Lie de Thé (can look like milk chocolate), Orange Indien looks spectacular in this nib, a lot more boring with finer.
  21. Stipula Pen Company originates from Florentine, Italy and was established in 1973. Stipula is a historic term used by the ancient Romans to indicate faithfulness to an obligation. Stipula’s has accepted the obligation to its customers to produce quality pens utilizing ancient themes, designs, techniques and traditions. It sounds nice but from my limited experience with their pens it seems they doesn't really deliver what they promise. Happily Stipula pens come with a limited lifetime warranty so the buyers are covered in case the pen fails. Additionally there are rumors that Stipula has some problems and may cease operations. I'm not sure if it's the case but it seems their products availablility on the market (especially european) is limited and only few retailers carry their pens and inks. If anyone has some news / insights about Stipula situation I would appreciate the insights so that this review provides sound informations. Stipula offers a line of fourteen inks sold in nice glass 2.4 oz bottles. Interesting feature of the bottles is the fact they have light polyethylene seal pushed in the neck of the bottle, visible when you unscrew the cap. The seal (is it correcy english term?) is rather hard to remove without splashing some of ink onto desk, wall, closest entourage. The colors are: Azzurro (Light Blue) Blu della Robbia (Blue) Borgogna (Red) Grigio Fumo (Fading Grey) Grigio Lava (Dark Grey) Nero (Black) Nottorno Giannutri (Dark Blue) Rose (Sweet pink) Rosso Fiorentino (Florentine Red) Terra di Siena (Brown) Verde Muschiato (Musk Green) Verde Risorgimento (Bright Green) Violet (Violet) Zafferano (Saffron) A sample of Fading Grey (Grigio Fumo) was sent to me by Mmg112 - thank you a lot! The color is rather nice. The ink is saturated enough to be used in all situations and will remain legible. Tfe flow is good and there's some plesant lubrication to it. It doesn't dry out if you leave the pen uncapped for, say, one minute. I think it's nice grey ink. It won't become my grey no.1 (still searching) but I enjoyed trying it.

I was interested in trying this ink. The color is strange. I wouldn't call it's grey. It's not dark either. It looks strange. Funnily it's lighter than Fading Grey (Mmg112 sent me samples of both of them). The ink has average flow. It lacks saturation and lubrication. It can be used and I guess people who draw with inks may find it pretty nice. For me it's not really usable ink. It was cool to try it but I would never buy a bottle.

    Stipula Sins (?)

    The title may not be accurate but,as many titles of this typy it has a potential to draw more knowledgeable people I'm interested in buying / trying some new Stipula inks however it seems it's practically impossible in EUrope (at least in my usual sources - La Couronne du Comte and Appelboom). Does anyone know why big e-retailers don't carry their products? I've tried to contact Stipula via their website but received no answer. I've never been interested in their pens so my knowledge about the company and it's market is limited. I'm interested in making it wider.

Stipula offers a line of eight inks sold in nice glass 2.4 oz bottles.

On the other hand it's surprisingly light. I've bought a bottle and comparted to the ink I tired three years ago it's much lighter. I believe guys from Stipula buy some base ink and then mix it so the result is not always consistent. Here however the difference is quite striking. ANyway the ink flows nicely and doens't cause any feathering or bleedthrough. The color is ok but it's niot the kind of brown I'm crazy about.
