  1. Hi, just thought id share my selection of Stephens (1932) & Parker victory (1935-46) English made (discounting the first 5 years made in canada). when you look at the the period in general a lot of the the other makers were concentrating on lever fillers. would be nice to see what else is made during the period in button filler. regards Rick
  2. Hi I am new here so be gentle I have a modern 58 series Conway Stewart fountain pen.It is in a black presentation box with padding and blue ink. On the barrel it says Conway Stewart 300/113 Made in England and on the nib Conway Stewart 18ct Gold M It has a twist ink converter and is a reddish colour. Its never been used (I would like to find out roughly what it is worth before I use it) I got it through a competition win in the 1990s and the little book with it is not stamped or signed. I have tried to research it periodically over the years to find out the colour name and what it is ma
  3. I like celluloid, Omas, vintage (and of course modern too)... For a long time I resisted getting a vintage Omas Cracked Ice. The combination of the rare pattern and vintage Omas makes it quite expensive to acquire a senior sized or even a mid sized Omas Cracked Ice. I also have a vintage Conway Stewart Cracked Ice, which is considered one of the most attractive Conway Stewart patterns (along with Herringbone, Tiger Eye etc). So I convinced myself that I didn't need an Omas Cracked Ice. That is until the right moment came. Recently I was able to acquire a vintage Omas Cracked Ice in the lady/ri
  4. Hi All, I own a few modern Conway Stewarts in their various marbled/cracked ice finishes and I am wondering who makes the pen blanks for them? I know that SEM was their supplier for ebonite but I am not sure who makes the resins for them. Here are a few shots of my Conway Stewarts. If you aren't sure but you have a hunch of who is the manufacturer, please do share anyway. Thanks! Churchill in Honey Noire Belliever in Poinsettia and Duro in Cherry Red
  5. Having just picked up my grail pen, I was astounded by its size and thought a post such as this would be a useful reference. Take a look at the comparisons with a green Dinkie 540 (c.1950) and with its larger counterparts, a #77 (c.1958) , #58 (Red Herringbone c.1958 & Silver hatch c.1955) as well as with the c.1940s flat topped #1200 and the mighty Onoto Magna Classic (2019). The heart-breather nib design suggests my pen is a first edition. The #100 was released to coincide with the Golden Jubilee of Conway Stewart in 1955. Later models featured one band, no bands and a Duro point wit
  6. I considered the Churchill to be the my favorite Conway Stewart design during my first few years or collecting pens. Its stepped clip grabs your attention without being ostentatious. It has an imposing size but remains practical even to those with smaller hands. It has a classic early 20th century design. And, it has a nice respectable name. I decided that if I could only have on Conway Stewart, it would be the Churchill. I ignored other CS designs like the Marlborough for the most part. In fact, I bought the top pen in the image below with the sole intent of reselling it for a small profit to
  7. I currently have an old celluloid CS 479 from the early 1930s on my bench that, not surprisingly, needs a new sac. It's in very good condition otherwise. Since I have not that much experience with CS pens, I wonder if anyone here can tell me whether the section is friction fit or screw in? Thanks a lot in advance. P.s.: Sorry, my previous post had a typo in the title, which unfortunately I cannot edit. Maybe a moderator can remove the earlier post.

    Conway Stewart No.489

    The pen that I'll be reviewing (or discussing) today is: "The Universal Pen Conway Stewart London No.489" I have had this pen for a bit over a month now, have used it everyday, and have found it to be a reliable writer. I managed to pick this pen up after doing some antique shop hunting, and managed to get it for only $23AUD. On that note, I think it is actually much better to go vintage pen hunting in person rather than online. It's more fun that way, not knowing what you'll find, and you probably end up with a nicer price, provided you're willing to do some relatively easy restoration work.
  9. I have recently inherited a couple of pens from my father. I'm mainly a Parker freak, and one of them was a battered P75 I've repaired and put back on the road. The other takes me out of my comfort zone: a Conway 87 - see photos below. It's in quite a bad way and needs a good deal of TLC. It is inscribed 14CTGOLD on the nib, and 'Conway 87 made in England' on the barrel. I've found a website that sys these pens were made (or started being made) in 1960. The sac has totally perished. It looks to me as if the squeeze filler is not a removable converter, but is fixed into the pen. Is this corre

    Conway Stewart Duro 2A

    It's been some time since I wrote these first impressions but there's little to add. The Duro remains a delight to behold and to use. I've kept it at home and take it out of its dark cupboard every other night to write a page or two just for the fun of it. It starts without hesitation and keeps on going.
  11. Hi All, Recently, we did an India Exclusive Group Buy, for ASA Azaadi. A model which was designed after Conway Stewart Churchill model. Here I am producing a Group Picture of the pens made with Conway Stewart, Omas and Cocktail Blanks, for some of our customers. Thanks for looking. Subramaniam
  12. ASA Azaadi in opal Creating a new ASA Azaadi in opal gave me a four-part tutorial in pen design. I commissioned the Azaadi after reading an account of a stunning similar pen in casein by Prithwijit Chaki, a prolific contributor to the Fountain Pen Network. Inspired by the fine white-on-ivory veins of the casein, I set about looking for a material that would simulate the elegance without the fragility. [/url] Capped, the Azaadi is about 1 centimeter longer than a Lamy Safari. Uncapped, it’s about the same length, and considerably thicker. Lesson No. 1 – Material Selection The Azaadi, as
  13. I have just stumbled upon a lovely blog. There are some great posts on Pitman's shorthand, Platignum pens and school pens from the 60s. I hope you enjoy reading it as I did. Link: https://shorthandtypist.wordpress.com
  14. I recently won an auction containing a bunch of beautiful Conway Stewarts. I'm in the process of getting them ready for the San Francisco pen show and sale in general. I opened one up late last night and instead of the usual flakes felt something solid, I pulled gently and got a very fun little surprise. Included also is a photo of the whole lot, mostly English celluloid, just for eye candy!
  15. Hallo, I'm looking for cap for Conway Stewart 756M, because pen is whithout it (photo attached). If anyone from You have such a cup, please give me a sign - I'd like to buy it. Regards. Artur

    Greetings From Cold London

    Hello from cold London (-5). I like fountain pens, but also have a Yard o Led ballpoint and one from Pelikan. My fountain pens (all broad nibs) are Grand Victorian by Yard-o-Led which is a great pen, albeit have nib replaced, Conway Stewart Churchill Poppy Edition, Conway Stewart Rudyard Kipling, Visconti Bronze oversize Homo Sapiens, Visconti Dali and a bright orange Visconti. I am just about to buy a Onoto Shakespeare. I use Diamine ink :- Royal blue, crimson, green, purple and red. So the collection is quite small and I have only started in the last four years. Any feedback or recommendat
  17. Introduction: The Conway Stewart brand has always been one of Interest, Desire and Pride in the Fountain Pen community more so since the unfortunate events that befell it. But it seems that a conscious and considerable effort is being made to revive the brand. I was fortunate enough to attend my first pen show at Los Angeles in February of this year. After the initial “pen”sory overload, the hunt for a memorable “First Pen Show” Pen began. A word of caution, such hunts can begin and end at a single table if you’re not careful with your cash! And for me this could have been Sarj Minhas’s ta

    Joined Today In Plymouth Uk

    I used to work t Conway Stewart in early 2003 for a few months as one of their Laser Engravers until I was made redundant. Just found this site and joined today whilst researching a Conway Stewart Cracked Ice 24 that came into my business yesterday. I gather from some comments I am getting I have been posting details of some of my pens in the wrong forum. "Chatter"
  19. Hi all. Today I bought a Conway Stewart 466 lever filler from an antiques market. The pen is in nice condition and fills properly, but when writing with it it feels "scratchy" to me - at least compared to my TWSBI Eco(F). The pen has a 14ct gold nib(not sure of the size) and it is a flex nib. However, the nib looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/6rZpQNp.jpg?1 (Apologies for the slightly poor out-of-focus picture) Is the nib supposed to have that subtle "bend" in it at the end? Or am I just using a flex nib wrong? I gave the pen to my mother to try(she writes with a "straighter"
  20. TL:DR There are wires in the ink channel of a Conway Stewart 75: 1) are these original, 2) can they be removed for the cleaning/restoring process? Longer version A friend has an inherited Conway Stewart 75, which he wants to restore to working order. Inevitably, there is a lot of dried ink in the channel and feed that doesn't come out (4 days of soaking only loosened up a little of it). The obvious thing to do would be to knock out the nib and feed and clean it manually. However, there are several wires stuck down the ink channel. We have removed one (it came out easily) and it runs the leng
  21. Here I am with a question about restoring casein. I already cleaned the body, removed the old petrified sac, and ordered a new one (I'm waiting for it, I should receive it within days) The cap of the pen has some "corrosion" marks, see in the attached image the red circled spots. There is a way to fill that marks and then sand them? I've also practiced static modelling in the past (tanks, airplanes, ships...) so I'm quite used to work with plastic materials and resins. I'm wondering if there is any safe material to use to fill that marks, maybe a transparent paint or some resin? Thank
  22. Hi all. I've discovered lots of modern Conway Stewart for sale on this website, www.retail-world.net. I really like the Winston Lapis Blue and I was thinking on ordering (it's offered here: http://www.retail-world.net/conway-stewart-the-winston-pen.html). Does anyone have experience on this website? Thanks for the information! João.
  23. There is a pen purported to be a Conway Stewart Model 100 made by the "new Conway Stewart America" company. The nib engraving and band are like nothing I have seen before. One of the photos has a brochure with a CS logo I have never seen before and a URL that is Mary Burke's old site. The pen looks like a Model 100 superficially. Supposedly is celluloid (not usual for CS). The gold rings and the cap jewel are not like the Model 100. Here is the link to the offering: New listing CONWAY STEWART MODEL 100 BLUE CELLULOID NEW MODEL ** NEVER BEEN USED **REF The seller is in Italy and has modera
  24. The announcement was made last night here at the DC show that Kenro will be the US distributor for the latest reincarnation of Conway Stewart. They hope to be back into production by late fall.
  25. . INTRODUCTION: This 58 is the first “vintage“ FP I bought. The moment I first saw the pictures of this iconic Conway Stewart, I was impressed by the classic old-fashion design. When I found one in near mint condition (at about 120 UK pounds) I was happy. The overall aspect is a high quality one. Inside its cardboard box (even this near mint), there was the FP and the original warranty sheet. The pen has even the original price tag (32 shilling and 6 pence), useful for dating purposes (until 1952 the price has been 31/6) . Appearance & Design (10-10) – This Conway Stewart pen
