  1. Hello all FPNers! Today I have in review a very interesting and unusual tool from the Ystudio design. For a long time I wanted to buy something unusual, not classic, and began to look at faceted pen (hexa- and octa-gonal design) from different brands. Actually, having seen this unusual design about six months ago, he laid down an idea for my mind (like in the “Inception” by Christopher Nolan) and a week and a half ago, accidentally hitting the manufacturer’s website, flipping through the pages, I couldn’t resist and wrote to contact – and I have this handsome in hand:) Ystudio Bras
  2. I posted this in the Waterman forum as a response to someone who was concerned about brassing on his celluloid bodied pen clip. I thought it might be of use to the entire forum. So I post it here. Home plating is not difficult. The hardest part is the surface preparation of the metal before the plating. Before you get started, mask any areas which you are NOT plating. It protects those other parts from physical abrasion and chemical attack.

    Help With Clips

    Hello all. I have a couple of pens with clip damage. I'm aiming to keep them both, so I'm not too concerned, but I was just wondering what I might be able to do. I have a lovely red Eagle Prince at last. I've been trying to score one of these for ages, and while they come up fairly often on eBay in the States, they're pretty hard to get for a reasonable price in the UK. I assume the clip has lost its gilt, and I think it looks quite nice actually, as it's a lovely near-black tarnish, with the remains of the gilt on the imprint. What I was wondering with this one is what the base metal is,
  4. Hey all, Is it possible to repair a clip that has 'brassing' on it? Is it possible to get it plated in gold or anything? And; Can you remove micro-scratches from resin pen barrels and caps? Thanks, Tom.
  5. Check this... http://zobeid.zapto.org/image/pens/bexley_clip.jpg That's what the pocket clip on my Bexley "America the Beautiful" looks like now. It sure didn't look like that when it was new! I understand that thin platings do wear off, and supposedly "brassing adds character", but... This pen isn't all that many years old, hasn't been used all that hard, nor polished excessively. It almost seems as though the plating is just... evaporating? What gives? BTW, this was the model with "rose gold" plated trim, which also includes the cap bands.
