  1. Recently I was going through the youtube there I saw a fountain pen never heard off....the name is Parker Folio Fountain Pen. Any update regarding this pen?
  2. Although I found and bought a couple of Pelikan's five-packs of a long international royal blue to empty myself, I'd like to fill the other colors into cleaner empty "carts". I've searched threads here, eBay, and Amazon. (The search algorithms misunderstand the goal but wading through a bunch of results I see that this may never be possible...) I like my own bottled-ink choices. Just hope to use them with fewer refill breaks. Thanks, in advance...
  3. Hurry! Offer ends soon! There's a packet of Monteverde Neon Orange ink carts with one missing. These fit Lamy Safari and Lamy Nexx. They really do glow under black light for all your psychedelic needs! Krishna ink bottles: Myrtle, a burgundy pink with shimmer on the bottom. Shake shake shake and get your shimmer and exercise routine all in one! Empty. Is it brown? Gray? Black? Your guess is as good as mine, but it is SATURATED, for all your really elusive deep dark color expressions. Shamrock, an intense saturated shamrocky green. Just in time for next year's St. Patrick's Day! Plus, if you act now, a special surprise will be included! . Reply here to be in the running. Shipping is free, but substantial restrictions apply....as in CONUS only. Good luck! Hey...there's a shamrock! 🍀
  4. Hi, I have a Pilot Super 60 that needs cartidges or a converter. I tried the Pilot Namiki cartridges that fit in my Pilot Elite, an original tab filler from a Super 100, and a CON-40 converter, none of them fit, they are all too 'fat' to fit into the receptacle on the section. The opening for the cartridge/converter is approximately 6.7 mm inside diameter. The Namiki cartridges, CON-40 and tab filler are all about 7.1 mm in diameter. Does anyone have suggestions for cartidges or (preferred) a converter that will fit this pen? Thanks, Kent P.S. I also need a clutch/trim ring for the section for a Pilot Super 100. I took mime apart to replace the cartridge and the ring came off and went down the drain. So the cap doesn't stay on any longer. It is the ring that fits between the section and the barrel that I lost. the first picture below is of the section of the Super 60, the second picture I am pointing to the missing ring on the Super 100.
  5. I have this Waterman fountain pen. Here it is capped. Here is is uncapped. Here it is in a close up of the section/nib/feed. I probably need to ask about how to fix this one in the Repair forum, but I'd like to know what it's called. The nib is attached to the feed in an unconventional way. Sorry the photographs are crummy and done with such different lighting. I am not a photographer. Thanks for any help.

    It's Working Again!

    So this lovely Estie that I was given has been clogged and I have not been able to get it to write for a number of months. It had been leaking a little bit (which I ascribed to my inexperience with eyedropper-filling a used cartouche), and I had put a bit of silicone grease around the places where the body connects to the nib unit. Then I couldn't get it to write at all. Usually, when I am doing my pen maintenance, I will fiddle with it a bit. Yesterday, on a lark, I placed its nib on a paper towel that I had just used to blot up a bit of ginger tea. Although I had previously tried capillary action, for some reason this time the ink began to flow again. I don't know if it was the ginger, time or something else, but I am quite grateful to have this pen working again as it is a pleasure to use and had been very reliable.
  7. Hi there to all, A few weeks ago I bought a Cartier Vendome fountain pen which is unused.I did not know that it was difficult to find cartridges for these pens. I'm still looking for some cartridges. Luckily a friend of mine had three cartridges. The pen was his father and it was lost or stolen, but he would still have some cartridges. Anyhow It was three cartridges. I got them and I try to install one of them, but it doesn't get punched. I tried it many times and push it very good, but the ball does not come lose. If I take the cartridge system in my hand in push the cartridge all the way up, then I see some space at the bottom. I don't know there should be placed something there, or is this normal? Does anyone have any experience with Cartier Vendome fountain pens on this matter? Cheers to all, Byte

    Esterbrook Cartridges

    Hi, I have just acquired an Esterbrook in a job lot of old pens and would like to bring it into use. It currently has an empty old Esterbrook cartridge fitted. Can anyone advise what cartridges will fit? It is much longer than the 'common' cartridges you see around. Also from an environmental perspective is there a filler e.g. pistion filler I can use? Not sure what model, but if I can work out how I will post a picture in this part of the forum. Just been looking at Esterbrook.net and think it is a CX-100 model with a red barrel :-) Many thanks, Julian
  9. Inspired by a Goulet blog and instructional video, I've discovered a new way to clean Waterman fountain pens which use converters or cartridges. I've always flushed the pen by filling and rinsing, filling and rinsing, etc., with a converter. The new way is to remove the converter or cartridge, then use running water to flush out the nib and feed, and fill and rinse the converter by itself. I've got a bulb syringe on order. However, I've immediately run into a problem. After doing this flushing, if I insert an ink cartridge and start writing, the writing is very faint. It takes a lot of writing before the writing darkens to a usable level. Dipping the pen in ink makes very little difference. Any suggestions on how to speed up the process of getting my writing to be dark enough? Relevant details: Waterman Expert GT and Waterman Phileas pens, Waterman Intense Black and Serenity Blue 75mm cartridges. The Phileas is about 10 years old, the Expert ir 6 months old. I use a variety of inks.

    Lamy Cartridges. Poor Fit Or Counterfeit?

    I bought some Lamy blue/black cartridges and I have been using them in a Safari & a Nexx. The issue is that they seem to weep ink where they push-fit onto the 'pip'. I tried wrapping the cartridge with paper, so there's some kind of a seal around the end of the section. The paper was impregnated with blue/black ink when I just looked, but there was nothing in the barrel. I would have tried the cartridges in my Yiren 566 but the damn thing has an EF nib. The cartridges have the 'LAMY' mark and are in a box with a Lamy name. Has anyone else had any issue with the fit of the Lamy cartridges? The poor fit made me think they might be counterfeit. I have some Lamy Blue cartridges, but I have only fitted one you my Yiren 566 demonstrator, not to a genuine Lamy pen. My actual Lamy branded pens are a Safari & a Nexx. The b/b cartridges weeped on both pens. I quite like the Lamy blue/black ink. I don't know whether it is non-gall or not.
  11. Hello: I recently purchase a platinum gold honest fountain pen. It is very nice looking and very old. Unfortunately, I can find no ink cartridge or converter to the nib section The current platinum cartridges or converter do not fit. Can anyone help? See picture of nib section.
  12. I figured there are so many pros on here, and tinkerers, this has probably been done. Any feedback on long term use of the Kaweco short standard international cartridge jammed onto the feed. The fit was nice and tight and the flow started right away. May be sacrilegious but I was jonesing to use it again with nary a correct cartridge or converter at hand. Thoughts?
  13. I admit I do not use this pen the way it deserves to be and so I am moving it on to an appreciative FPN user IN THE UK ONLY. Sorry to raise my voice. Transatlantic postage is stupid expensive. The pen is from a Group Buy. It is entirely of polished black ebonite. It should have a Schmidt K5 converter, but the red rubber seal washer inside the converter failed. It has a Jinhao converter in there now. The pen has a 3 in 1 ink feed but i'd suggest you had a specific nib unit for that role as a Bock 250 nib unit writes very wet with 2.5ml of ink in the barrel. The pen has a Fine & Extra-Fine Bock 250 nib unit included. I am passing the pen on because my preference is towards Eyedropper pens with basic ebonite feeds for easy cleaning.
  14. Hi all, today I was in my local branch of the UK chain of discount stores ‘Home Bargains’. I chanced to walk past their stationery section, where my eye lit upon a sales pack that contained a cartridge-fill fountain pen and two cartridges, for the price of 59p For those of you who do not live in the UK, that bricks-and-mortar store price of £0.59 includes my country's sales tax of 20%. At today's exchange rate, £0.59 = 0.69€ = $0.77. As a ‘purchasing power’ comparison, at the time of typing this the price of a 2-pint bottle of whole milk in my local supermarket is 80p. The ‘huge’ investment outlay gets you a "MADE IN CHINA" transparent plastic pen that has a completely-unmarked nib (which I assume is steel and ‘medium’), and also two cartridges of ink that the packaging describes as black. The cartridges are slightly shorter than standard ‘Short International’ cartridges (I measured them at 34mm long, whereas an SIC is 38mm long), but their nipples look like they might be the same size as those on a SIC. The pen's grip section looks as though it might be slightly too-small for my paws (I am 6'1" tall), but I am certainly curious enough about it to ‘risk’ the sum of 59p to find out Bon; after I have run some dish-cleaning water through it to remove any manufacturing residue, I shall run one of its cartridges through it, and then some Waterman ‘Serenity Blue’ for comparison, and a SIC of ‘WH Smith’ branded black ink too. Once I have collected and collated all this ‘data’, I shall post a review of it on the relevant board here. After all, I wouldn't want to inadvertently be the cause of any FPN user ‘wasting’ their hard-earned 59p on one of these if it turns out that the thing doesn't write very well Cheers, M. [Repeatedly edited to correct FFE's ]
  15. I really like Kaweco Liliput pocket pens – they are simple, robust and beautifully machined fountain pens. However, the Liliput’s small size mandates that ink cartridges need to used instead of a cartridge converter. I became frustrated with what I perceived as ink starvation when writing for extended periods of time with the pen, so I decided to look into this phenomenon in more detail. The picture below shows a cross-section view of the interface between the ink cartridge and the Kaweco (Bock) 060 nib. This 060 nib is used on all Kaweco fountain pens, except the Elite and Supra models. It shows that the plastic ball that originally sealed the ink cartridge sits nicely on top of the feed tube when the pen is orientated upright – which is the opposite of what’s desirable from an ink flow perspective. The feed tube length for the Kaweco (Bock) 250 nib (used on the Elite and Supra pens) extends about twice as far into the ink cartridge, so the mechanism for the plastic ball to obstruct the feed tube is largely mitigated for this design. My solution to this perceived problem is to prevent the plastic ball from being pushed into the cartridge. I use crimp pliers (i.e. smooth jaws) to squeeze the cartridge and eject the plastic ball from a new ink cartridge. Its a bit messy, but only needs to done when a replacement cartridge is required. I empty the cartridge and dry it out – then fill it with my favorite (Monblanc permanent blue) ink using a 0.2ml disposable transfer pipette. A photo of a (truly) empty ink cartridge and pipette is shown below. The 0.2ml pipette is small enough to be inserted into the ink cartridge, and represents a very compact and inexpensive approach to fill cartridges. I reuse the pipettes numerous times, so I have a lifetime supply from the minimum quantity of 200 that I bought from Amazon for about $20. If you find that you’ve experienced similar ink flow problems with your Kaweco cartridge pens, you may wish to consider the above approach to hacking the Kaweco cartridge interface.
  16. Hello everyone! I have recently fallen in love with the Parker-Eversharp 10,000 Word Pen, which I think is so odd-looking it's beautiful -- it's like the Edsel of pens! At any rate, I wondered if the claim was true, and how to test it. I obtained some original cartridges, and then was so excited at the fact that I could buy some of the original Quink with Solv-X. The chemist in me is still fascinated by what Solv-X could actually be. I have one pen that came to me with cartridge attached and still with fluid, useable ink. It's just incredible to me that a product like ink could last so many decades, and still be useful and beautiful. "Does not dry in the pen" indeed -- one claim proved true from the outset! Anyone else with "historic ink" they like to use? Given this festive time of year, and the ability to count words quickly with a computer program, I selected 10,000 words of Dickens's _A Christmas Carol_ (all of Stave One, a little of Stave Three, and all of Stave Five) and decided to write a "love letter to Christmas," as it were. The pen was ready, the Quink took some filtering and dilution (with discovery of an incredibly pretty crystal! Solv-X? or just pigment?), and I set aside paper and time. Several beautiful nights teary-eyed at the beauty of Dickens's writing later, I had written 10,000 words with the namesake pen, and I still had more than 1/4 cartridge of ink left. Photos provided to prove all this, naturally-- I'm certain my micrographic printing helped, but also I think Dickens's writing has a disproportionate number of Very Long Words, so perhaps that balanced toward the other side of actual writing line length. (Pages are written double-sided) Merry Christmas to all, and God Bless Us, Every One! Matt
  17. Hi, I picked this up recently in amongst a load of other pens - having difficulty in tying down the model/date. In style (nib, barrel and cap) it appears a good match with the Imperial II Touchdowns of ca.1962. However its a cartridge filler and i haven't found any reference to Sheaffer marketing such a pen. Is there anyone out there who can enlighten me? With the conical nib it makes for a fine writer (even finer with the nib reversed). Thanks PS. I did find a reference to the Imperial models being reintroduced in 1969 with a cartridge filler option, but these had a new style cap with a white dot - I suppose its possible that over the years simply an old style cap has been paired up with a 1969 Imperial CT model.

    Venvstas D'art

    This is my first formal fountain pen review. Today's subject is the Venvstas D'art. https://www.venvstas.com/dart This is a custom plastic lacquered fountain pen in an irregular geometric form. From the website, the description is; Hexagonal irregular section 12mm/15mm - 5mm ink feed, length 155mm closed, 143mm open. Cap do not post. Weight 15g loaded. Links to all photos are here https://photos.app.goo.gl/3ZjY3wF8wyvfP6pU8 The nib is a bit of a nail and feels a lot like using a ballpoint pen. You don't have to adjust the pressure too much so this makes it a very suitable beginner's fountain pen. I grip the pen normally and the irregular shapes aligns with my finger placement. I didn't have to contort or hold it any different. The pen was comfortable for long writing sessions. The nib and feed keeps the pen wet for fast writing without any issue. The ink also doesn't dry up for extended 4-5 days sitting idle in the pen cap. Overall, a solid fountain pen and a bit of a conversational starter with its unique shape. edit: trying to upload pictures, but it keeps failing will save this post as a place marker for now

    Montblanc Mozart - Cartridge Size

    My husband has purchased a Montblanc Mozart in Bordeaux for me as a birthday gift. (YAY!) I know in advance because he picked it out and then had me approve, since he doesn't know a lot about fountain pens. He sure made a good call on this one! This is my first experience with a Montblanc, and I'm quite excited. I won't get to write with it until September, but I want to be prepared with the right ink cartridges. I assume that I could just go with Montblanc cartridges, but I'd like to know the right size so I can use other brands as well. The posts I've seen on this topic have been a bit contradictory - some say standard international, and some say short international. Can a Mozart owner/user chime in to confirm which is the right size? I have heard mixed reviews on using converters for this pen, so for the time being at least I am going to use cartridges. Caroline
  20. Does anyone know if there is a formula for calculating the maximum hole size of an ink cartridge without the fluid coming out? In this site I proposed the problem but nobody could find a solution. At the moment. https://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/412804/how-to-determine-the-maximum-size-of-a-hole-that-can-keep-ink-water-stay-in-an-i
  21. Hello everyone, I'd like to hear suggestions on which converters to use with Pelikan Pelikano Up fountain pen. I've read that Pelikan pens are compatible with standart international converters. Nevertheless, Schmidt converter, which I believe is a standart international one, does not seem to fit into it. However, I managed to fit a regular cartridge in it. I would like to be able to use the pen with a converter. Any comment, suggestion or correction will be appreciated. Thanks in advance
  22. I have just seen the review of the Rotring Surf pen on Youtube. It looks like a basic pen, with a smooth nib. Does anyone have this pen? If yes, then how cool is it? Here, have a look at the full review first: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEM_gAsrMm4

    Waterman Cf

    This is actually my third CF. The first was inherited from my grandmother, who passed away some time ago. My dad went to get the gold plated body polished, but ended up losing it, pen and converter and all. My second was a lemon from an eBay seller, which had many cracks as well as an underperforming nib. Based on my experience in getting a refund, I suspect that this was due to the shipping process because he proved very good at getting the refund back. Which brings me to this pen. I’ve wanted to replace the lost CF, since I adored the nib design on it. I found this also on eBay and got quite a reasonable price. Note: When there are 2 rating, the top is for my satisfaction, while the lower is for how much it could do, for that particular category. For example, I might be extremely satisfied with a stiff nib (5/5) but the lower rating would be (1/5) since it couldn’t flex at all. The ratings are not included in the final score. Initial Impressions Box and Instructions (5/10) I bought this pen used, but it came in a standard and, I think, modern Waterman box. This consisted of a blue cardboard and faux-leather box and a white cardboard outer sheath. Whilst not very exciting, it was a nice touch from the seller. No instructions were included. Aesthetics (17/20) The pen has a mesmerising moire pattern. There are superimposed designs on the lined silver finish which give the pen a very sophisticated feel. Some of the moire pattern is a bit off and inconsistent, so points are deducted. The cap band and barrel trim come together when the pen is capped and the moire pattern aligns beautifully if properly positioned. The silver coloured trim is very high quality and is not scratched even after use as a pocket pen for about 4 months. This pen’s grip section is on the thinner side but is still fairly comfortable. The rather long section is completed by the “Skripsert” type nib which is well-integrated into the section and is flush with the pen. Engravings on the pen are obviously high quality. Whilst they may not be obvious due to the colour scheme, they are legible when required and disappear when you’re not looking for them. “WATERMAN CF” is inscribed into the cap band, whilst the barrel trim is engraved with “MADE IN FRANCE”. The clip is a little large in comparison with the pen, but is expertly plated like the rest of the trim. It integrates well into the pen, with the clip ending with the cap top. Initial Feel (8/10) As someone who appreciates a hefty pen, this did not disappoint. Although small, the Waterman CF is quite solid and fairly heavy for its size. The moire pattern is quite ergonomic and provides a very nice grip, since I tend to post this pen and grip it fairly high. The barrel isn’t flush with the trim ring, though. Filling (5/10) The pen didn’t come with a converter, but I had bought one earlier. It’s a squeeze type, which has quite a tough sac but otherwise works. What is annoying is that it’s proprietary to not only the brand, but to the model of the pen. This means that if I happen to lose or break this, I’d have to either pay $40 for a new one or refill the cartridge for the rest of my days. Performance Smoothness (9/10) Satisfaction (7/10) Rating The nib has a very good performance on all papers. It’s smooth, but has some feedback which I didn’t mind. What I didn’t expect was for the nib to sometimes squeak, which has scared me on quite a few instances. Flexibility (5/5) Satisfaction (3/5) Rating The 18K nib was quite springy, but as it was already a broadish medium, there was little line variation to be had. Nevertheless, I didn’t expect any flex, so this slight variation was a nice surprise. Flow (10/10) Satisfaction (9/10) Rating The pen has a wet flow of ink, which keeps the nib well supplied. I haven’t yet had any hard starts or skipping during my use of this pen at all, which is quite pleasing and a relief since it would be a nightmare to prime the feed using a squeeze converter. General reliability (15/20) An annoyance with this pen is its tendency to leave a ring of ink on the section near the nib. This is quite minor, since I don’t grip so far down anyways, but my compulsive requirement to wipe it off has given my fingers a variety of colours. Other than that, the pen has not failed in its performance as of yet. I take it to places where I don’t expect to write too much, since it’s not the most ergonomic of pens for me. The nib, however, is smooth enough to warrant me to want to use it more often than not. Construction and Ergonomics Fit (8/10) The exterior of the pen is done flawlessly. The cap slips on firmly and stays closed. The clip does not wobble, and like I’ve said before, the plating on this pen’s trim is flawless. The section unscrews rather roughly, which is a minor concern. Clip (4/10) This pen’s clip is very stiff. It’s hard to open manually, and doesn’t slip on surfaces easily. The clip on my pen is also ever so slightly misaligned which is OCD-terrifying. However, this doesn’t affect the functionality. Posting (7/10) The CF’s balance is great posted, and I almost always use it that way. The cap isn’t the most secure when posted, but usually stays on most of the time. Miscellaneous (Extra thoughts) Value for money (8/10) I got this pen for $90US. Not an incredible deal, but a fair price for a pen in excellent condition. Considering the fact that $90 doesn’t get much these days, I am quite pleased with the purchase. Innovation (5/5) This pen was amongst the first cartridge pens, and the first commercially successful ones. In that respect, the Waterman CF is quite historically significant. Image and Advertising (3/5) Strangely enough, the pen isn’t as well known or respected as the 51. Whilst having a more conventional design, the fact that the first successful cartridge pen isn’t celebrated more is quite a surprise. Buying experience (4/5) I bought this pen on the internet, through eBay. I didn’t expect much and was rather wary after my previous experience. Free shipping was a very nice touch, even though I didn’t communicate much with the seller. Total (113/150)=75.3% This pen is a very pleasant writing instrument, although too small for extended use in my larger hands. It’s quite an underrated and underexposed pen, in my opinion. I feel that the extremely specific filling system and rarity of converters has put of potential collectors who would rather have an easily replaceable part as opposed to something that is expensive and difficult to find. The Waterman CF is a pen I take out in order to make quick notes or fill in forms. I find it visually appealing but cannot write with it for an extended amount of time. Since I’ve been through 3 of these, I am happy to say that I have found another piece that will stay with me in my collection.
  24. After asking for recommendations here, I bought a Platinum Century #3776 and I am delighted with it. After a couple of months using it, it's the most reliable fountain pen I've ever had (although this may be normal as the other pens I had were cheaper...), and I love the nib's feel too. The only downside of it is the fact that it doesn't take standard cartridges. I have bought the international cartridge adapter, and it works, but at least in my case (with Waterman serenity blue ink) it decreases reliability. With a Platinum blue-black cartridge, the pen never ever skips. But with the adapter, it sometimes does, and I need to squeeze the cartridge to get it working reliably for a while. So, question #1: is this just a necessary evil with the adapter, or should I be able to get the same reliability as with Platinum cartridges if I find the right ink and/or replace the adapter with another? If it's a necessary evil, then one possibility would be to stick with Platinum ink. I like their blue-black color, but I have read horror stories about it being an iron gall ink that eats nibs for breakfast. I definitely don't want to damage my pen. However, since it's a gold nib, maybe this shouldn't be a problem? So, question #2: can Platinum's blue-black ink damage a 14K gold nib, or is there no risk of damage in this case? Finally, a third option (which is not my favorite as it's more uncomfortable, but it can be a good B plan) would be to refill cartridges using syringes. But I have also read horror stories about bad stuff happening when you mix iron gall ink with other inks (in fact, Platinum themselves warn about this). So, question #3: can I refill a cartridge which originally held iron gall ink with a different ink? What precautions do I need to take to do so? PS: I know there is also the possibility of using a converter, but this is not something I like in my case, as my pen travels a lot between home, work, and various places and it would be a bit too messy for that kind of use. Thanks in advance!
