  1. 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 made of in particular but have been unsuccessful so I have signed up here in the hope that someone can tell me how to find these things out. Can anyone help?

    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.
  3. 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 length of the channel. I've not seen anything like it before. My guess is that the previous owner inserted the wires to reduce the flow, and that they can be removed without any concern as part of the cleaning process. But given that it is an heirloom, we're being quite conservative and don't want to simply proceed without advice. Any ideas? Also, what size sac would a 75 take? Pictures follow: Picture 1 shows one of the wires; you can see the ends of the other wires sticking out. Picture 2 shows the wires sticking out of the ink channel.
  4. 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 you in advance for any suggestion. Matteo

    Asa Monal - A Custom Beauty

    Recently I found myself to be using more pocket pens than bigger pens but I lacked any good custom pocket pen. So I went to Lakshminarayanan Subramaniam of ASA Pen who suggested me to look into ASA SWAN ,I liked the model and thought how to spice things up .. I recently acquired only 1.5 rods of the very illusive and sold out Conway Stewart Flecked Amethyst and thought to make a custom pen based on ASA SWAN out of those blanks .. The end result http://i.imgur.com/QGnOBg7.jpg THE ASA MONAL 1. Appearance & Design:- The pen is a rod shaped pen .The body and the section is made from Conway Stewart Flecked Amethyst blank. The cap is made from black glossy Indian Ebonite and te cap finial is also made from the CS blank. I opted for this custom design mainly for two reasons . Number one being there wasnt enough CS material available anywhere to make a full size cap and number two this design shows off the fusion between EAST and WEST .. http://i.imgur.com/BH5UPPj.jpg The fusion between EAST and WEST Here the gorgeous CS blank weds the Indian shiny ebonite .. I also made a smaller cap from the CS blank ( still in making process) 2. Construction & Quality : As always ASA made a fantastic job with the CS blank. The finish is world class ,devoid of any tool marks or imperfection . I cant even feel the joint where the black ebonite meets the Flecked Amethyst finial on the cap . http://i.imgur.com/LKaYidd.jpg The cap opens in very convenient one and half turns . The section is a nice and smooth hourglass transition from the barrel and the threads are perfectly smooth http://i.imgur.com/UyESpOB.jpg The smooth barrel to section transition with hourglass section 3.Comparison :- As this pen is based on the model of ASA SWAN a comparison with it only fair. Both pens are almost equal in length when capped . However the barrel of the ASA MONAL is a little bit thicker and has flat ends . http://i.imgur.com/shct06r.jpg ASA MONAL AND ASA SWAN CAPPED Opening the cap of both of pens reveals hourglass section in both , ASA MONAL has slightly thicker section diameter which I enjoy a lot .. http://i.imgur.com/DdUe9K8.jpg ASA MONAL AND ASA SWAN UNCAPPED 4. Nib & Performance: - IF you ask anyone from India the best Indian nib , I am sure they will come up with KANWRITE .. The ASA MONAL is custom fitted with KANWRITE #35 M FLEX nib unit ( same unit in noodlers ahab) The beauty of this nib unit is that not only it writes super smooth out of the box but also you can swap the nib unit with inexpensive nib units from KANWRITE with the range of EF,F,M,B,BB, RTOBLQ,LFTOBQ ,STUB in regular line and F,M,B in flex lines . This gives an amazing adaptability of the pen .. EF TO BB just in one quick screw in and out http://i.imgur.com/DVBEg2L.jpg KANWRITE #35 M FLEX AND SCHMIDT M http://i.imgur.com/KIPa9Nu.jpg ASA MONAL DISASSEMBLED WITH #35 KANWRITE NIB UNIT TO give an size comparison of the ASA MONAL with LAMY 2000 http://i.imgur.com/DHFlzt7.jpg ASA MONAL AND LAMY 2000 CAPPED http://i.imgur.com/OFxqsKh.jpg ASA MONAL AND LAMY 2000 UNCAPPED 5. CONCLUSION AND WRITING - The ASA MONAL is an example of true custom beauty ,an wonderful writer and superb craftsmanship of ASA .. I am very much delighted to possess this beauty .. http://i.imgur.com/5eMgc0s.jpg
  6. From what I can gather Conway Stewart Fine nibs are 0.7mm which makes them the same size as a Pelikan M and the Conway Stewart medium is 0.9mm which would put it between a Pelikan B and BB - does that sound right? ...of course you may or may not be a Pelikan users, so I am really asking if generally CS nibs are known to run large vs. other nibs? Does anyone have any info? ....I ask because I recently purchased a CS 58 with an EF nib which I was assuming would be way to small for me because I generally like a medium nib although I do have a Lamy 2000 F and a Montblanc 146 F which I regularly use when writing on standard office / copier paper. Thanks in advance! Bill
  7. New-style, bi-color 18 Kt gold nib. A Medium, custom ground to a crisp cursive italic by Oxonian Not so incidentally, the new style nib has basically the same writing characteristics as the old style nibs. It is pleasantly springy. The size, however, seems very slightly larger than my other CS #6 nibs. This nib has been custom-ground and tuned, of course, but it writes very smoothly with just enough feedback and medium ink flow. The fine lines are actually even finer than they appear in the document scans, above, and this is with an ink that is generally regarded as "wet" (although I don't find it so). Nebula meets of couple CS Belliver siblings - Red, White & Blue and Shingle (left to right) I did not perform a quantitative rating for this review. I really haven't found any reasons to deduct even fractions of points. So, assume a "perfect" score. Note that that is not the same as a "best" score. And now, a moment of silence for the Conway Stewart Belliver. I hope it comes back. It's been a terrific model, in my opinion. Happy writing! David
