  1. The Ferocase Pan-Gora Classic Pen Box (45 pens) I ordered from La Couronne du Comte earlier in November, taking full advantage of the free international shipping offer and 20%-off site wide discount for Fountain Pen Day, has finally arrived in the post yesterday. This is what I was expecting: Ferocase Pan-Gora Classic Pen Box (45 pens) [FER-930] The rosewood Pan-Gora Classic pen collector's box by Ferocase offers room for 45 pens. The tempered glass window shows your pens in a stylish way, while at the same time the case offers maximal protection. All compartments are covered with a
  2. I just partially cleared out my desk to make room for more stuff. I removed many cardboard and plastic boxes that pens came in. Right now they are in a paper bag. Do you keep them? If so why?

    My First 51 Experience

    A couple of weeks ago I spotted a lovely burgundy vintage Sheaffer on the website of a well-known and reputable British vintage pens dealer, at a very attractive price. I ordered the pen, but as fate would have it, the dealer sent me an email that upon final inspection he'd found a hairline crack in the section, so the deal was off. We corresponded for a bit and I shared my small collection of vintage pens with him and inquired what he felt was needed 'to complete my education'. Among the pens he kindly suggested was the Parker 51. I've never been a Parker fan, based on looks that I don't ca
  4. Dear all, I have the good fortune of a Swan 242 1/2 50 in my collection. My pen came with its original guarantee slip (fun for a 100 years on), and in a presentation box. However, as far as I can see in the advertising, Mabie Todd didnt make presentation boxes for single pens (only pens with pencils) for this model and at this time? I can only assume the branded, cardboard box the pen came was discarded at some point and the guarantee and pen itself transposed. Although it seems strange that someone went to such effort to conserve the form, unfilled in and redundant? Aside - Im intrigued to kn

    Montblanc Greta Garbo Box :d

    Hello ,guys ! I am new to the forum ,just purchase my first montblanc for myself ,I have bought a 145 for my friend as a gift for doing the surgery on my mom !

Hopefully some of you guys have a box that is just laying around
  6. Hello fountain pen enthusiasts, Today I am writing my very first review. I am new and not well informed on the subject, I will probably make some mistakes. So, please excuse any error I can write. I am open to critics as long as they are not mean. Recently I was looking for several fountain pens in various colors to match with my mood. I already own a blue and I was looking for a red one to pair with the dark blue suit I have to wear sometimes. I am no a fortunate person, sadly I cannot afford the Parker I really like. I do not think buying a £400 or so pen is a good idea when I have millio
  7. Found this beauty on a Dutch auction site. There is a story behind it: What makes this cabinet unique is the story that goes with it ..... Once upon a time in the late '70-s/early '80-s the general manager of Parker Netherlands designed this cabinet and had some 100 made by a German factory that was renowned for the cuckoo-clocks it made. The cabinet was intended to surprise the global Parker CEO when he came to visit the Netherlands. He did like the cabinet, but when he found it was made by the cuckoo-clock company he forbid it ever to be sold as a PArker product, because .... everythin
  8. Hey everyone! I just got this idea and tried it. I am new to fountain pens and have some ink bottles that are taller than I would like. I am a klutz so I tried to figure out how to keep the bottles (ahem, Noodler's, ahem) from tipping over while I was filling them. I took the box the ink came in and use only one other piece of cardboard to make this pretty stable stand for my Noodler's ink. It is as simple as cutting the box down a bit, folding over the sides and taping the flaps to a square piece of cardboard. I have included a graphic and two images of what I came up with. I used

    Box For Danish No. 20 Pen?

    Friends, I'm looking for an original box for my Danish Montblanc No. 20 pen, circa 1935-46. Does anyone have one for sale, or know of someone who does? Cheers, Rob D.
  10. My wife and I paid our monthly visit to our favorite Japanese resale shop on Rizal Avenue in downtown Manila ("the armpit of the city", as one poet-friend picturesquely calls it), and I found a couple of very nice wooden boxes (selling for about $3-$5) which I've repurposed for my pens and inks: The second box came with built-in dividers so it seemed a natural home for inks: Not bad for less than $10, plus the pen tray, one of which I still thankfully had lying around.
  11. http://www.penshop.co.uk/products/authentic-models/ae3118022000-authentic-models-colourful-prose/ Just saw this, and wondered about the ink....can't seem to see what the brand is('Authentic Modes' is as far as I got, and Im not familiar with it) Just curious.... Alex
  12. I decided to take some pictures while I was making a simple pen box for my father's birthday. I was so happy when I found a Parker 45 (that was in great aesthetic and functional condition) for my father's 45th birthday. But there was no box so I needed to make one myself. If you want to give away fountain pens without a box, maybe this simple tutorial can help you. I managed to finish this box under one hour and I spent nothing, every material and tool that I used was found at home. 1. Materials needed: - coloured cardboard - some kind of foam (polystyrene, thick cardboard, etc) - piece
  13. Does anyone here knows why there is so many different packaging versions for the Safari pens? I went to a local pen shop to buy some Safari pens and I was given this, rather nice, boxes for each one (see attachement). At first, I thought it was due to the fact that all are special editions, but turns out all the Safari, Vista, Al-Star pens they carry are sold like these! The couple of pens I've gotten from the US all came in small dark grey cardboard boxes and I've seen another package from a European FPN member that is only a cellophane bag. Is this determined by the export market?
  14. Okay, this might be a rather dumb question, but when one purchases a pen and it comes in a box, do you always keep the box? I have lots of pen boxes (some still storing the pens, others empty and some empty with booklets and paperwork) of those pens that I've purchased new in the past 25 years. Obviously, vintage pens or those "found", pen show purchased, swapped, etc. usually are boxless, but does the box on some pens make them anymore valuable? You realize that if this addiction hobby continues, I could easily acquire MORE boxes and that would require MORE storage space! Like I said,

    Sheaffer Valor Box

    Hello, I just bought a Sheaffer Valor which I've been saving up for some time now. The pen is great, what what disappointed me a little was the box. I had come to believe it would have come in a wooden box, but it was actually packaged in a rather normal Sheaffer box. Does anyone know if this is standard? I bought this at a Sheaffer retailer at a department store.
  17. Hi All, I'm looking for information on vintage Pelikan pen boxes, specifically which box(es) is correct/original for which model from the 1930s to the 1960s. Photos would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance, Rob
  18. So, i am soon going to start a project creating a pen box out of a Cigar box. I plan to make it hold 4 pens (more like 3 pens and an ink syringe) and 4 vials of ink. I have a few questions before i start (and one random question). 1. (random question) i plan on buying this Pilot Metropolitan off Ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pilot-Metropolitan-Fountain-Pen-Silver-Zig-Zag-/400499897700) and they say it has a "Pilot aerometric converter (squeeze type)". Do you keep the nib attached to the converter when you squeeze it? 2. What is the maximum length of a pen? I dont want to someday buy some
