  1. Hi, last week a stunning Swan #2 tuned up nib arrived on a Swan L212/60 (late 1930s). It has a double pointed tipping: downside a F with good flex and on the top a real needlepoint! The L212 isn't restored yet, so I took a 6260 for a writing sample on A5 paper with 5mm squares: Some details of the nib and tipping: I haven't seen such a nib before, it seems to be a lucky find...

    Identifying An Early Parker

    Hi all, I picked up an old Parker button filler at a flea market recently and I can't figure out what it is. https://parkerpens.net/luckycurve.html#jackknife This makes me think its a Jack Knife, but I really have no idea. Can anyone give me any background info? In case you can't see the (ridiculously huge, sorry) photos, here are a few details: It has a 2 imprinted on the blind cap. Just 2, nothing else.The nib says PARKER PEN MADE IN USA with the number 6.It has a lucky curve imprint on the barrel with a long string of numbers I can't make sense of. It's longer and slimmer than a Duofold Jr. Thanks in advance!
  3. Howdy, So I'm pretty new to Waterman pens (I'm new to the hobby as well, but I have done -some- research on P51's and mid 40-60's Sheaffer pens, specifically because I wanted an Imperial IV TD, which I got and love!) and was looking around for a decent, yet cheap, vintage flex. I saw a few sites out there selling refurbished flex pens and used that as a guide on what to look for on ebay and I came across this: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Vintage-Waterman-Stalwart-Fountain-Pen-Ideal-14K-Canada-2-Nib-Vg-Cond-Works-/281257980826?ssPageName=ADME:B:EOIBSA:AU:3160 Fully working, #2 canadian nibbed Stalwart. In the small amount of research I've done, I've heard a few times that #2 ideal Canadian nibs are good for flex, but then I've had other people say that they're at best semi-flex. Also, the stalwart's don't seem to be that common (the search on this forum came up with only a few threads and very few of those were people who actually owned one). Would you say this pen was worth a $50 or so price tag including postage? Did I pay around average or did I get a deal? I don't mind if I got it for the average-ish price (I like the look of it and it seems that it should flex -enough- for what I need it for). Is there anything I should know about these as a first time owner of a waterman pen from the 40's (for ex - certain inks to avoid etc). From what I understand, they have an older feed type that can struggle to keep up, so I would imagine that a wetter ink would be appropriate, no? Cheers in advance - Josh
  4. Hi All, In need of some advice. I have a busted feed and section for a #2 Waterman nib. It came from my 14k solid gold Edward Todd ringtop (lever fill). The crazy thing is it is a screw-in section. I am not sure if this is original? Anyway, I would like to replace the feed and section and get the little guy up and running again, but I cannot find a screw-in section and feed. My thought was to find a similar (same) pen and swap out the feed/section, but I do not know what to look for on the cheap and not in the mood to spend hundreds on the same pen to fix this one . Any suggestions on how I can get this little feller going again? Can add pictures if you think it would help. Thanks in advance!

    Round Robin Letter #2

    For anyone who has expressed an interest in forming another Round Robin Letter, here's where to sign up. A round-robin letter is one that circulates within a family or small group. Each person writes his/her contribution and forwards to the next on the list. The second person adds a page and forwards both pages to the third person. The third person adds a page and forwards all three, etc. When the envelope comes back to the first person, his/her original page is removed and replaced with a new one. The cycle continues. These are the parameters: SIX 8.5 x 11 inch pages of 20# paper plus one cheap lightweight envelope weighs one ounce. Therefore participation is limited to 6 people. (Anybody can set up round-robin letter 3, etc.) Each person may write only one page and must use 20# paper or lighter, but may write on the back of the alloted page. Letters must be forwarded within 3 days. If that's not possible for any reason, just mail the bundle and catch the next round. No bogging or hogging the letter. Letters may be international, so members must be willing to pay international postage for a full ounce. Remember that if you use heavier paper, you force everyone to pay for an extra ounce of postage, which becomes expensive for every other member of the group. If more than 6 people want to try a round-robin letter, I would encourage someone else to jump in and start a third.
