    What Is My Pen?

    Hello! I don't know what this fountain pen is. Could I please get some help? I don't expect it to be something special. My friend just found this and it says on the nib "IRIDIUM POINT". Thanks in advance! http://imgur.com/60PzwEX http://imgur.com/xuNB9RC
  3. Hello! This is my first post so I figured it might as well be a cry for help. I picked this up at the flea market and have been fixing it up. I can't figure out what it is, though. Any help identifying this pen would be greatly appreciated! The clip is missing and the nib is unbranded. The only marking is an A on the spoon lever... All I can figure is the era, late 20's early 30's... The nib it came with was missing the tipping material so I've swapped in a flexible Wahl nib for the time being (fun). Thanks for the help! Daniel
  4. Hello everyone. I'm new to this. Is there a permanent ink that does not clog or dry in the pen (nib?) if the pen is not used for a week or more? And, a permanent ink that flows well, is "wet", and easy to clean out of the pen? If I only use the pen several times a month for check writing, etc, is that enough? I have several Pelicans, a Sailor 1911, and a couple cheapies. Thanks so much for your help. Newbie here. Aloha jim
  5. Can anyone help me I'm trying to figure out this pens brand and name. I found one similar on ebay but it just says "Mother of Pearl" but doesn't give me an actual brand or name. The nib is marked "WARRANTED 14K". Can anyone help?
  6. Does anyone know of Daniel Steiger fountain pens? They appear to be a watch/jeweler for men, and must have made some branded fountain pens at some point. I got one as a gift around 2010, and need a replacement nib/feeder, but can't find anything that fits and don't know what to look for in a generic nib/feeder anyway. If I knew the mfr of this pen I'd have an idea where to look, or if I knew how to know what size nib/feeder I have, I could look for a generic. Thanks for helping!
  7. Hi! I have recently gotten back to using fountain pens after having used them in middle school, where it was mandatory. I find some old lens lying around the house and though i could identify most of them, I have no clue about this one. Please help! Im new to FPN and this is my first post, so if there is some other thread where I should be posting this, please direct me to that. Thanks in advance.
  8. Apologies if this is a bit of a tenuous connection to Pelikan but I picked up a t-shirt in the UK with the attached image on it. I obviously bought it because of the Pelikan and ink bottle imagery but I wondered if anyone knew whether this really was a Pelikan brand poster from years gone by.

    Which Green?

    Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting a green ink, which I really want to be dark, have some shading going and have a good flow. But there are not much good quality video reviews on green inks that I can check out. The other problem is that I have brand limitation. I only can get one of these brands: Parker, Sheaffer, Waterman, Lamy, Caran D'ach, Mont blanc, Diplomat, Cross. I'm currently using waterman absolute brown which I really love and my pen is sheaffer 300. What do you think?
  10. I've noticed recently that De Atrementis, Diamine, and some Montblanc special edition ink bottles share the same lid design. I'm now wondering if these inks are made by the same manufacturer. Montblanc recently came out with an ink called 'blue hour' which, judging from online swabs, looks very similar to diamine twilight. Both have very similar names. Also, De Atramentis and Montblanc have inks called Mahatma Gandhi and look very similar. Is it possible that these inks are made by the same manufacturer? Let me know your thoughts.

    My Impressions On Twsbi

    Why the heck should I pay fifty dollars for a cheap plastic pen?—those were my initial thoughts as I fresh review after review raving about how magnificent a pen the new TWSBI was. This was 2011, when the TWSBI Mini had just flooded the market, generating a parade of followers with size rivaling those of Pelikan’s and Lamy’s. Twenty-eleven was about a year after I had begun my fountain pen collecting journey, a time when I still put my fullest beliefs in solid, heavy brass-barreled cartridge/converter pens, when I believed every-bit that weight represented quality. So I brushed TWSBI aside as a fad, partly because I didn’t believe in lightweight pens, and partly because I was scared away by the numerous pictures and posts about cracking issues, and slowly waited for TWSBI to eventually disappear, bound to the obscure edges of the fountain pen world. But it always stayed, looming so strong in the distance, reviewers raved about the fantastic pens, and TWSBI’s pens showed up on list after list of must buy pens. It would not be until 2014—a good three years later—that I would finally give in. By then, I had warmed to the idea of plastic pens. I had owned a couple plastic pens—namely a Pelikan and a Pilot 823—which I absolutely loved. I had slowly begun to understand the long-term value of a pen that was light and easy to wield, a pen that could beautiful dart between the purple lines of crisp Rhodia paper. It was November 1, 2014—that was the day I ordered my first TWSBI, a clear demonstrator 580. I had $50 in my Amazon account that was burning a hole in my pocket, and my qualms about the cracking issues had finally been set aside slightly by the commensurate posts about TWSBI’s great customer service. I figured there was nothing to lose in purchasing a TWSBI, and I figured if all went to hell, I could just return the pen on Amazon. The pen arrived just two days later, peeking out at me with its yellow envelope. And I was blown away. Reading the reviews, I had always expected the TWSBI to made of cheap Bic pen plastic. I had expected the pen to be something that I would have to replace in about a year—a consumable pen, which I so much abhorred. But the TWSBI 580 was something of a next level pen. It’s plastic bore a sort of familiar heft, and the way the plastic was molded on the barrel—the absolutely striking diamond design—blew me away. I was startled by the creativity behind TWSBI, the idea to cut the barrel a certain way so as to add some depth to the basic cylindrical design that plagued so many other demonstrator pens. In the light, it resembled the crystal bases of whiskey glasses, creating a dance of light and reflections as I slowly turned the pen in the sun. And then I lost my TWSBI 580. Just a week later, it was gone. I set it down somewhere, and that was it. It was the first time I had lost a fountain pen, and the fact that it was a TWSBI, made it that much more heartbreaking. It felt as if I was just beginning to discover a pen that could very well be everything I was looking for—and then, it just disappeared. Later that year, and into 2015, I would order a couple other pens—a Lamy 2K that was way overdue, a Visconti Homo Sapiens, among others—but I always felt my mind coming back to the TWSBI 580. Both the Lamy and the Visconti were absolutely fantastic pens—don’t get me wrong—but I always had this sense that TWSBI could do better—TWSBI could easily make the same pen at a far lower price. But I couldn’t bear—at the time—the thought of owning another TWSBI 580. The wounds of my loss were too fresh, the TWSBI was like a dog that had passed away—I couldn’t just go out and get one that looked just like it. June 3rd, I finally ordered another TWSBI. This time it was a TWSBI Mini with an extra-fine nib. I knew I would love the TWSBI Mini because it had everything I loved about the 580 in a smaller—and postable—form factor. Like last time, the TWSBI Mini came two days later. I can confidently say now that the TWSBI Mini is my favorite fountain pen. Expensive pens like Viscontis and Pelikans are fantastic, but I’ve always been plagued with the fear of losing them, and thus those pens rarely leave the house with me. Chase Jarvis has said that, “The best camera is the one that’s with you”. Similarly, my great Holy Grail pens are fantastic, but—unlike the little TWSBI—they are never with me, and therefore the TWSBI is my best pen. It is pen that is available at a price point where it will always be with me. Furthermore the absolutely stellar customer support at TWSBI means that I don’t need to worry if any problems ever arise. I can’t think of a single other fountain pen brand—not even Pelikan or Omas—where I can personally e-mail the owner and immediately get a problem fixed. If purchases are a union of trust between the seller and buyer, then I have every reason to trust the people at TWSBI. In a way, I feel inspired by TWSBI’s story. TWSBI began as a manufacturer churning out uninspiring, cheap unbranded ballpoint pens for other brands. But then TWSBI decided that it would create its own brand, that it would manufacture absolutely fantastic fountain pens at a low cost. TWSBI to me represents the classic story of trading financial security for passion. The people at TWSBI decided that they wanted to create something that absolutely delights and inspires its customers, instead of basic cheap ballpoint pens. Today, I would purchase a TWSBI fountain pen even if they weren’t good, knowing that I would be supporting a company that seeks passion. But TWSBI pens aren’t just good, they’re fantastic, which makes purchasing that much easier. And every time I pull out my TWSBI, I am reminded of the great quality and writing experience, and I’m reminded that if the desire to pursue a passion can create a fountain pen this great, then I have every bit the reason to pursue what makes me happy. In a way, TWSBI inspires me to ignore the basic securities and pursue—throw myself head-first—into whatever it is I love. And perhaps, just perhaps, I can create something as great as a TWSBI fountain pen.
  12. So, I was rummaging through my late father's belongings, and I came across this pen of his. My friends and I don't recognize the logo on this pen, and I'm having difficulty finding the answer with google. Thank you for your help in advance
  13. In my obsession of all things Pelikan, I've contemplated getting the Pelikan: The Brand book, which is easy to find. Apart from the interest in having it for those who are collectors, is it as interesting as the Pelikan Schreibergate book, or something one would read once and then never again? For those who have the book, are there pictures of pens as well and documentation of the history of their pens? Thanks!
  14. Hi, I recently bought this lovely fountain pen with wooden barrel and fine nib. I found its picture on internet as well but I have no idea about the brand. It takes international cartridges and it rights only 'iridium point Germany' on the nib. I would be happy if you can help me find the brand. http://justwrite.com.au/justwrite8/images/products/rosewoodfpbpwc_3.jpg
  15. I saw a curious thing in the wikipedia entry for Sheaffer a little while ago (spurred on by part of a post here on FPN that mentioned it). Someone has edited the wikipedia article on Sheaffer to include this bit: Of course, the Sheaffer website itself is still branded Bic, and likewise the NR website (and wiki entry) have no mention of sheaffer. Big shocker here- I've actually been able to find absolutely nothing outside of that wikipedia article (which seems to have been edited back in April and remained fairly consistent with this new info since). The new info at wikipedia seems just a little... too positive, if you ask me. So, since everyone knows wikipedia is SO trustworthy, has anyone else heard anything about this?
