  1. 我在二手市場上以90NTW的價格購買了一支原子筆。 它沒有任何保證,而且價格便宜,我認為它是假的。 有沒有人有任何想法或告訴我他的模特, 謝謝
  2. Does anyone know of any Canadian retailers who carry the Pelikan 337 refills? I'm in the Toronto area, but any Canada-based retailer with an online shop is perfect. Thank you in advance and Happy New Year!
  3. I found this Parker Flighter, listed as a Jotter. But there is no nock, so presumably it is a twist mechanism, and the bottom of the barrel is knurled. Can anyone provide the actual model?

    Bbc Ballpoint History Article

    You might why on Earth am I posting a link to an article on the BBC web site about ballpoint pens. Well there is some nice history there, some nice drawings by an artist. And the drawing of a supposed "fountain pen" is of a dip pen! Oh, the outrage! Enjoy. https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20201028-history-of-the-ballpoint-pen
  5. I have a a retractable ball point pen that a dear friend gifted me for Christmas a couple of years ago. He recently passed away so this pen is quite special. It is a Vera Bradly pen and I replaced the original refill with a Schneider Slider 755 XB. This issue is that once the pen is extended, pressing too hard or laying the pen down more than gently causes the pen refill to retract. It does not retract fully. If I drop the pen on my desk at a height of merely 1" the refill will retract. The point of the pen is still barely visible out of the tip of the pen thus I have to click the top twice
  6. I just bought this 1985 vintage UK-made Parker Jotter ballpoint. I bought it on a whim just because I happen to really like its color. But the minute I arrived home, I noticed that the clip has an unusual feature that so far I haven't seen on any other pen: the clip arrow has no feather up top! Anyone has a pen like this? Has any one seen one before? Really intrigued as to why it is missing such a feature.

    Pelican Click Ballpoint

    Came across a click ballpoint with unique Pelikan design and case. Promo? Curious on any info. Thanks
  8. Okay, sure, a lot of the driving force behind "tactical" pens is pure hype, appealing to the target audience of men for being something manly and to women for being some discrete way to defend themselves against the onslaught of touchy feely brigands, but hear me out. I've been using tactical pens as my main carry writing implement for the last eight or nine years now, the first and possibly most significant of which was this Schrade, still in use today. I say it is the most significant, because that is the one that got the ball rolling for me on tactical writing implements, not because

    Starwalker Line-Up, Old Design.

    Good evening folks! It has been quite a while since I posted here. My interest in the pen hobby watered a bit but lately it got renewed, in some form at least. I sold my pens, inks and some accessories and took a fresh interest in the Montblanc Starwalker series ballpoints of which I already had one for ages (Rubber & Platinum) and recently acquired four more (Red Gold Metal, Midnight Black Metal, Mystery Black and Doué). I'm planning to add two more for now. I am posting here for two reasons: - I have a few small questions. These will apply mostly to the ballpoints. - I want to make a
  10. The pen is probably 15 years old, and Im curious. It also has the words Dynasty (or something similar, thats all I can make out) engraved in the middle.

    Help With Cross Pen/pencil Set 6601

    I was just given a set of these by my grandma, they were my grandpa's, but I don't have the manual, so I was wondering if you guys could help me out. Doing a google search only resulted in sales links, and I want to know if/where I can buy replacement ink, and how to do it, and the same with the lead for the pencil. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  12. I was given a Parker Sonnet 2018 special edition, of the Metro variation of the special edition. This was a pleasant surprise - I did not even know that there were Sonnet ballpoints before I joined FPN last year. The Metro variant of the special edition are pens with black bodies and chrome-coloured caps with a city map pattern over the metal. The black plastic body feels like some sort of organic material, not unlike MB's "resin" plastic, to the touch. The map pattern's tactile sensation is matte. Metro pens have palladium trim. Pictures of the Metro fountain pen can be found in this thr

    Carene Ballpoint Issue

    I bought an amber carene BP from a well known auction site. When it arrived today I went to put in a refill but the cap just keeps spinning without unscrewing. It is the version with the cap which turns 180 degrees to extend the ballpoint. Is there any way to repair this? Thanks for your time.
  15. Hello to all, I got a Rotring 900 "side knock" ballpoint pen and I would like to know how the internal mechanism works. I was able to open the pen, but I did not find anywhere on internet an explanation regarding its internal structure, so at the moment not only I am not able to understand its mechanism, but also I do not understand if my pen is broken or not, and if some components are missing. I have not got a refill for this model, and I am not sure on what refill type is compliant to this model. This ballpoint pen is one of the most original I ever saw, and its mechanism is quite origi
  16. I’m having difficulty with the fit of refills in a Montblanc Leonardo ballpoint. An older “Pix” marked refill works, and allows the click mechanism to work perfectly, but when I fit a current production refill, the point barely protrudes from the nose of the pen. Maybe the recess in the refill end cap is deeper on the current product refill? Can anyone please suggest a fix for this? Any help will be appreciated
  17. Why is it so hard to find yellow ballpoint pen. I mean yellow ink ballpoint pen. I have yellow fountain pen ink. Yellow gel pens. Yellow pencils. you can find yellow in almost all art supplies. And when you want ballpoint pens, where is yellow? I have visited many art stores. I have purchased these https://www.amazon.in/Paper-Mate-Retractable-Ballpoint-1788863/dp/B005DEW3J4/ref=sr_1_63?keywords=colored+ballpoint+pens&qid=1565679755&s=gateway&sr=8-63 https://www.amazon.in/Staedtler-Triangular-Ball-Pen-Colours/dp/B002BDNLR8/ref=sr_1_7?keywords=colored+ballpoint+pens&qid=1565679

  19. I received a pair of CS, a ballpoint 95 and a fountain pen 150. I love these models, esp. the ballpoint. And folks, I need your help....... For the ballpoint, I can't fine the refill in Hong Kong, I tried many similar refills but the metal points are too big that cannot be used. Any recommendations for getting any compatible refill anyway? I saw a thread here below saying that 2 refills may fit. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/342875-a-vintage-conway-stewart-ballpoint/?hl=%2Bconway+%2Bstewart+%2Bballpoint Anyone tried before?, as I need to order form Cultpens
  20. Hi! Several years ago, I got this Sheaffer ballpoint from my mother. She had kept this ballpoint for the memory of her father (my grand-dad). The white dot on the clip is missing, however this ballpoint works perfectly. I use this ballpoint with my utmost admiration. From online reference, the model is quite similar with a Sheaffer Imperial, made around the 60s or 70s. I am not so sure because the pattern is not the smooth type. It could be a 203 or a Lady Sheaffer. Can anyone please help me to identify this ballpoint? Thanks in advance. Greetings,

  22. Hi, As I wrote in the title, how hard would it be to convert a Vector pencil into a ballpoint? There's one on ebay that I like, but I would like to know if it's possible and how to go about it. Thanks! Alex
  23. Hello everyone! When one discusses about the writing experience of fountain pens, a common topic is the combination of the three big elements of FP writing: pen, paper and ink. If one starts the fp hobby, more or less inevitably end up becoming a paper connoisseur and with one or more tri-part favorite combos. Perhaps less mentioned is the recurrence of the topic with other types of pens, specially with ballpoint pens which have a double reputation of "writing on almost anything" (including paper, plastic surfaces, etc. due to water insoluble, high viscosity ink) and also of being really tem
  24. I have a Waterman ballpoint and case given to me in the 1970’s. I ask for help in identifying the model and name they assigned to it. I do not see any comparable pens on various websites due to the 2 rings on the bottom portion of the barrel and its tapered curve. The cap snaps on vs. screw on. The widest part of the barrel is 14mm. I cannot find any model number or serial number on it. The top of the cap is at an angle and has the W logo imprinted on it. Anyone have any ideas? See photos please.

    First Year Jotter Mystery

    Hello all, I recently got a first year Parker Jotter in grey. I've noticed that this pen seems to only work with Parker branded refills. I have tried other refills such as the Schmidt Easy Flow and it seems when I click the pen it sort of gets stuck in the out position. This doesn't happen at all with Parker branded refills even after clicking the pen 20-30 times in a row. I was wondering if others has experienced this phenomenon. Also I was wondering which refills have worked well in first year jotters besides Parker Branded refills. Thanks
