  1. Many words are translated by Google, but it is still easy to understand. I make a summary about the cost of various special materials that may be used in the pen making. Only special materials, such as TC4 titanium alloy/Brass/Normal Steel/Acrylic/Ebonite/ABS/Normal Plastic Carbon fiber and other conventional materials will not be discussed. All Materials Price is calculated with a ROD. Its size: φ15mm(Diameter)*150mm(Length) So the volume is 26507.1mm3≈26.5cm3 1---Non-precious metals (only the material cost itself is considered, and the proce

    Retipping material

    What are the requirements for retipping a nib ? Can it be done using affordable machine ? Share your experience ! I have recently bought a Chinese welder for 100$ does it do the job or does it need more sophisticated tools both for gold and steel nibs. Thank you in advance

    Comparative Costs Of Inks

    The costs of different inks vary considerably, even by a factor of almost 6. My question is: what do you get for your money? Why are some inks so much more expensive than others? Is there any common reason? My data for comparison are inks listed and priced in the Annual 2020 Fountain Pen Hospital catalogue. Other relevant inks are sold by other dealers. They're not listed here. Also, prices will vary. So here's the list, sorted from least expensive to most expensive. What is relevant is the price per ounce. Noodler's: $4.17/oz. - $13.50/oz. Diamine: $5.56/oz. - $14.29/oz. Parker:
  4. I've decided to impose a limit of ten pens on myself, in an effort to ensure that all of my pens are used, and not just sitting there. What's your pen limit? Why do you have one? Why don't you have one? I've also made myself promise never to spend too much on any one pen - do you have a top limit? What is it?

    M 800 Renaissance Brown

    The day before yesterday news broke about a new M800 Release, the Renaissance Brown. The Pelikanperch has a interesting article about the new release and is quoting some sources. Just wanted to add that The Couronne du Comte has an interesting offer until April 12 using KINGPELIKAN. For us outside of Europe (no VAT) it boils down to EURO 335.- (or around 360.- USD) shipping included. No affiliation
  6. Hi, I am new to this site and had a question regarding MB prices. I was bought a MB Meisterstuck Rollerball by my team at work, back in 2008. As our birthday budget back then was around £150-180, I assume that this is how much they cost then (I think that I also bought a Starwalker Rollerball as a gift, around then, at a similar price). Is this correct? I ask because I have just looked at the MB website and it looks like the same pen now costs £330?! I realise that it was 8 years ago, but could they really double the price in 8 years? Thanks!
  7. In the northern hemisphere from now until school starts, school supplies will be on sale. Many of us stock up on FP friendly supplies at this time of year. I've already picked up a few composition notebooks at the local WalMart for $0.69. What are you finding?
  8. If there is such a thing Inwould like to know. This is the opposite of this trail|. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/283726-expensive-looking-inexpensive-pens/#entry3258953
  9. How common are beat-up pens that are perfect where it counts - nib, cap and body all sans micro-fractures and chips, discounting all dings, scratches, tooth marks and dents. I'm interested in something vintage which will last as a user, not a collector's piece. If these things are semi-readily found, how much of a difference would a battered body make to the price? Of would lovely nibs be taken out and put in something prettier? Cheers for your input!
  10. What price do pen shops and retailers pay for an M800 before selling on to the end user? Just curious..
  11. I use Waterman Phileas fountain pens to create drawings for my website www.TwelveDrawings.com Through my several years of buying, I have watched these wonderful pens creep up and up in price. I hear that back in France, they were strictly a school student's pen. In America, they once sold at Staples for about $20. When I bought my first one at Staples (2011) it was up to $50. I bought two more as gifts. One day, I dropped my pen (nib down onto concrete) and went back to Staples for another. The clerk said the pens were no longer made and suggested I check eBay. At that time (maybe 2012), n

    Levenger Ink Question

    Hey all. I have been looking at some Levenger inks that people seem to like. They have a nice bottle, colors look good and reports are they act well. But I am put off by the price. The bottles, according to the Levenger website, are 15ml in size but cost $12 each. Surely that can't be right. That's .80¢ per ml, making the ink some of the most expensive around (Pilot Iroshizuku is .56¢ per ml, and Pelikan Edelstein is .50¢ per ml in the US). Do the properties of the ink really justify the price? I mean Noodles is less than 1/5th the price.
  13. Serious journalers know the trouble of finding truly good journals at a good price. Cares such as blank pages, no showthrough, product availability, and reasonable hope of future availability over a decade or more really narrow the options and, in fact, may leave no good option. Attached is a cost-value study I conducted in 2013 based on the cost per square inch of paper surface. Taken into account were features (cf., above) as well as dimensions, page count, and price with shipping. My preference finally fell to Kunst & Papier, Item #100295: (5) Hardbound 8.25 x 11.75 journals price
