  1. My collection is still quite small. But I have some more vintage pencils on order. And my nightstand drawer and the closet shelf are getting to be too messy (and potentially damage-worthy on the pencils). I can't put them all into coffee mugs on my desk. I already have three mugs jam-packed with pencils and other writing utensils! I can't afford to do what I would like, which is to buy half a dozen Musgrave cedar boxes. So, what do you lot do? I am considering getting a few of these Container Store pencil boxes, for starters. https://www.containerstore.com/s/multisnap-office-storage-boxes

    Bock Nibs Leaking?

    Dear all, I've recently tried 3 bock nibs (all new), all with three sealed cartriges, and all 3 nibs, when pointing downwards, would collect ink quickly between the fins, and if I write like that would burp the ink on paper. None of my other Bock nibs that I've had for a while did this. Now I have another one in hand (for someone else), and it's doing the same thing, using a converter. I am sure there is no air leak anywhere, and to be honest, 4 nibs is way too much of a coincidence. What are your thoughts please?

    Parker 51 Feed Very Tight In Collector

    I am in the process of reassembling a Parker 51 Aerometric (1948 marked nib and barrel, no O-ring) after replacing the breather tube and sac. I had really no problem getting all the parts disassembled but I am now concerned with how tight the feed is getting it back into the collector. It feels much tighter going in than it felt coming out. And it seems like I can't get it as far in as it needs to be because one, it's so tight that I can't even feel the feed hitting a stop point and, two, when I then put the nib in as far as it can go the tip of the feed is too far forward compared to the ti
  5. So I saw this this parker sonnet at my local book/stationary store. I didn't see any finish resembling the finish on that sonnet on parker official website. After googling for a while I found out that that was a parker sonnet laque moonbeam! It's a 1994 edition and it's still brand new, the price tag is $150. Is laque moonbeam a rare collector item now? I'm wondering if I should get that pen, if it were you would you take it?
  6. Hello All! I am newer to the world of fountain pens/inks, excited to be here! As a noob to the community, I could not relate to this statement more - "The ever-reliable Pilot Metropolitan, an oft-cited gateway drug to full-blown fountain-pen addiction.” - YUP, first pen that started it all for me. I am trying to track down a bottle of the 'Noodler's Berning Red' ink from 2016 to purchase. I have not had much success, so I thought to ask the community directly. If anyone had a bottle they would be willing to part with/sell me, please reply to this post or PM me please, thanks so much!!
  7. Pelikan P476 cartridge fountain pen was manufactured from 1973-77. Although, very common in Germany 40 years ago, despite not being rare, do not come up for sale very often. 1. Appearance & Design (8/10) This is a rather conservative design using chrome and plastic. Not what I normally associate with the majority of Pelikans traded today. I suspect it was the company's attempt to manage the transition from fountain pens to the convenience of ballpoints. Despite using cheaper materials, the quality and construction is very good. I particularly like the use of stainless steel for the
  8. Hello everybody, a suggestion for improvement of my website was to have a Changelog. Absolutely good idea and comprehensible, but much additional work for me. Now the changes are more manageable and the idea of linking to social media brings both topics together. I have registered with facebook only because of the last Pelikan HUB. So I'm a layman with facebook. Suggestions for improvement - also to the Facebook page - as always - very welcome. https://www.facebook.com/pelikan.collectibles Hope nevertheless it pleases. The changes of the last weeks I have already recorde
  9. I've gotten more than one Platinum Preppy fountain pen lately. I am cleaning and flushing them all. A problem I'm running into is that they take so long to dry out. All in all, a Preppy will take about three or four days to completely dry out once I've gotten done with cleaning it. I really would like to have the drying process take a lot less time. I also don't like a pen with enclosed parts to be wet and exposed to the atmosphere for that length of time because it increases the possibility that something will start to grow in the water in that part. The problem is the collector, or whate
  10. What, exactly, makes a pen a "user grade" pen? I see this term all the time, and am sure it applies to most of my pens...is there a specified amount of wear on an older pen that puts it in this category? Or something unusual like a really deep scratch or a personalization or a cap that doesn't quite fit? I'm asking for knowledge, but I'm also asking because, if I decide to sell any of my pens, I want to be able to describe them properly. Thanks.
  11. I finally got around to re-sacing the ~1935 Swan M2 self-Filler (with a hard rubber lever) I bought months ago, now I can't put it down. I know it's just because it's the flavour of the week and the novelty will wear off but it's reminded me just how satisfying it is to get a very old pen writing again. I've now found my interest in mid-vintage (1940's and 50's) totally reinvigorated. They knew how to make 'em back then. 1930's and earlier are interesting too, but it was a bit later when companies worked out how to produce really high quality in large numbers. I have a preference for English
  12. Hi all, I've been wondering about the Hero 616. Does anyone know if the feed/collector system is the same for the 616 as that on the Parker 51? Just curious is all... Thanks, Badger
