    This is a brand new, never used / never inked Visconti Ocean Breeze Demo fountain pen with a 23kt gold medium nib. It's stunningly beautiful and is a limited edition. This pen in particular is No. 5 of only 118 produced. Inspired by the strong winds and rolling surf on the Greek island of Santorini in the Aegean Sea, the Ocean Breeze Palladium Limited Edition features a body produced in semi-transparent Acryloid, Visconti's unique celluloid-resin compound. The island theme is continued on the gripping section with an engraved wave motif. Each Visconti Ocean Breeze Palladium Limited Edition fountain pen is provided with a 23k solid palladium nib. The pen body trim is in matching palladium, and the pen fills using Visconti's innovative and high capacity Double Reservoir Power Filler system, which allows it to use any bottled fountain pen ink. Shipping on this pen will be via UPS due to the USPS experiencing unprecedented delays and they cannot guarantee delivery by a defined time. Therefore, I am charging only $10 for shipping by UPS from within the United States. This way, you can be assured your pen will arrive safe and sound and without delay.

  2. Don't know if you guys have noticed this. Posted on Bobby which is arguably our favorite Chinese based fountain pen seller: https://www.instagram.com/p/BxymyYNj_hV/?utm_source=ig_web_options_share_sheet Specs are still unknown, probably a standard #5 nib, available with the shut-off valves etc. What caught my eyes is the caption which if true, then the price will be less than $10. Hopefully at that price I'm not getting a limp acrylic.
  3. Hi all I've read that the Visconti limited edition double reservoir pens hold 'a ton of ink'. How much is 'a ton of ink'? Subjective, I know, but I'd consider 'a ton' to be more than 0.6mls. That's all that my limited edition Michelangelo Grande holds. 0.6mls. I've just conducted an experiment by filling and emptying it 12 times in succession; each time (using an ink sample vial to get an accurate measurement) it has only filled 0.6 mls. Here's my fill process....can anyone spot an error in this method? I unscrew the blind cap with the nib pointing upwards Pull out the plunger fully Hold the pen nib down and depress the plunger fully just to check that the pen is completely empty. Re-pull out the plunger fully. Put the entire nib fully into the ink (so that the ink also covers 1/4 inch of the section) Depress the plunger in one smooth, confident steady movement Count to five (though I've also counted to ten, for good measure) Remove the pen from the ink. Wipe the section. Hold the pen nib down Close the blind cap. Following that process, when I empty the pen into a sample vial, it contains just 0.6mls of ink. Not 0.6mls in the top reservoir, and a further ml or two in the main reservoir. Just 0.6mls in total. Am I being a total numpty and missing something? Is there a way of releasing the ink from the main reservoir that I'm overlooking? I've tried unscrewing the blind cap and jiggling the plunger when the nib is pointing downwards...no joy. I've tried unscrewing the blind cap, jiggling the plunger and trying to move ink from the main reservoir with the pen held horizontally...no joy. The main reservoir seems to be completely empty. Or is a 'ton of ink' 0.6mls and I just have unreasonable expectations? Ideas, anyone?
  4. I posted on Reddit, but I always get a bit more thoughtful answers and reponses on here. So I have a Homosapiens Bronze Age and I really enjoy using the pen, but the only annoyance is 9 times out of 10 it runs out of ink when I'm out of the house,and while I know there is the traveling inkwell (which I have) the fact that it is made out of glass and as broken on me in the past makes me a unwilling to take it out the house in my bag (ik about the pineider inkwell, I think I'm going to get one to replace the Visconti one). So right now I'm considering just getting a different Visconti that allows me to keep an eye on the ink level. Ideally it would not be a limited edition and would be pretty easy to get on r/pens_swap or ebay as I am looking to buy used.
  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?
  6. Hello, F.P.N. people from away down south in Dixie. I go by "The Leverist," I tinker with antique anything until it works, and I'm a random person on the internet. That's all you really need to know about that, so let's get down to the important business and talk pens. Okay, so I did the Sumgai thing and ended up with a pile of wrecked pens. One Parker 21 was the only one still workable, and it was cracked. Model cement to the rescue! It's fine now. Others were a mostly third-tier accumulation of pens that survived the Great Depression, and look like they rode in the glovebox of a Model T out to the land of opportunity. Here's the body count: 1. Fifth Avenue, built by Safford Pen Co. Red celluloid marbled. Condition: Poor--mangled brass nib, broken J-bar, obligatory ossified sac, and no cap. Has a red Waltham's cap with bent clip. 1. Wearever, Model "Deluxe 100," double jewel, brown striped celluloid. Condition: Very Shiny, but the nib tipping crumbled away when I touched it. "Special Alloy," indeed. Clip not quite right, lever very corroded, J-bar ok. 1. Champion. Model unknown. A very YELLOW pen colored like a Duofold, but shaped like a blend of old Sheaffer Balance and new Nemosine Singularity. Condition: Really good! Well, except for the sac. Everything else is just the way I never find them! 1. Sheaffer Balance Jr. Vac fill, flat ball clip, black with pearlescent flecks. Original Junior nib. Condition: I would tell you, if I could get the vacuum rod to move more than half an inch. Other than that, it's scuffed up but will polish nicely. Section is stuck on pretty good (regular non-triumph nib.) 4: Epenco's . Eagle Iridium Tipped nibs, GP steel. One burgundy, one navy, two really cool striped blue ones with a thunder-and-lightning pattern, like Noodler's acrylics but old-school. Condition: Every single one had a good sac (considering) but the J bars were neatly broken. 3. "Penman" pens. Look almost exactly like Nemosine Singularity pens. One black, missing cap band. Two grey flake celluloid, one in much nicer shape than the other, but I can't bring myself to part out the really grungy one. Curvex nibs, 14k Gold Plate. And--broken J-bar on one gray one. The other hasn't deigned to come apart yet. So There You Have It! I don't know what to do with the nib on the Wearever--not fond of Fleabay, but if I have to then I will. It doesn't have to be original Wearever, it just has to write. Fifth Avenue is cool but really battered. The Epencos are neat, the Penman pens are nice shapes, the Champion is really well preserved, and the Sheaffer is a seized-up but beautiful pen. The Parker? It's cool--testament to the most practical designs in history, if not the prettiest. I have already resacced another lever pen of mine (Gold Flex!) but these are pretty messy. Mostly I need nib ideas for that poor old Deluxe 100. Then, on to discussion of caps and clips, and freeing up the Sheaffer--which I think might be a 1935 model. I will trade a 1950ish Sheaffer Tuckaway Vac parts pen, with a beautiful pencil matching it, if someone can come up with either some parts or another project lever pen. The Tucky just needs the barrel bored and tapped and a new nib unit. A recognized pen mechanic quoted me $85 but I didn't have the money then. Anyhow, thanks for watching, and stay dipped. The Leverist (Who should have probably posted pictures.)

    A Vacuum Filler To Think About

    Auction here right now (not related with me) A "simple" golden pearl 1936 or later "VACUMATIC" with oldest and obsolete "VACUUM FILLER" imprint? or A golden pearl prototype long before the appearance of this color? Metal thread in blind cap. USA and PAT whitout dots. What do you think? http://s7.postimg.org/r42i8ufdn/PARKER_VACUUM_FILLER_LAZARD_GOLDEN_PEARL.jpg

    Twsbi Vac700 Vacuum Filler Question

    I ordered a TWSBI Vac700 and I have a question about the vacuum filler mechanism. More specifically about the removal of the o-ring as demonstrated by Brian Goulet. Has anyone done this? I'm interested whether there are any (negative) long term consequences? Excessive nib creep? Very wet writing? Leaks? And so on...
  10. For those that are interested, the TWSBI facebook page has a post about a new bundle promotion- a Vac700 & Vac20 ink bottle for $85. TWSBI Vac700 &Vac20 ink bottle promotion
