A simple topic about THE pencil: BLACKWING 602 Eberhard Faber. I managed to fit some original Blackwings in a Traveler's Notebook (this is a passport size) setup. I inserted a Blackwing 602 (in this case a BW of the 7th type, following the lineage suggested by the late Sean Malone on his website Blackwingpages) stub in the Traveler's Company brass bullet pencil. This was planned to record news, history, facts, users and market prices about the magic 602... In this way the Blackwing history, already analyzed and reported by Sean, is recorded and further enlarged and (I hope) studied in deep, following news, documents and images found on the web, papers, magazines (even vintage), catalogs and books. Rarities, images surfaced on the web, and sale prices are also recorded. I plan to then publish a pdf here, on fountainpennetwork (in the present forum, of course), when a final version will be ready. Any contribution is welcome
I am currently in possession of a pretty E.F. lever filler, but I cannot find what the model is anywhere! All I come across is Permapoint. The coloring and pattern of the pen are really pretty, but hard to photograph with my cell phone! The nib says Faber and has a diamond with a star inside. (???) Pen writes very smooth and is a great little pen, but I have no history. Help!!! (please) http:// http://
Okay, so I scored a lot of 6 pens from fleabay and I'm curious about them as I can't find much info. (Okay, there is some info for the Permapoint, but not much for the rest.) In the lot, there was a black Eversharp Permapoint with what says is a Iridium tipped M nib, but it writes F to me. Nice pen! There was a small Onward that looks identical to the Permapoint, but has an Onward nib. (needs sac) There is a beautiful E.F. (Eberhard Faber) red and black lever filler (needs a sack) and then... ...3 AMERICAN button fillers- two green and a red of same model. These are the most mysterious of the bunch to me. I'm thinking they are David Khan pens? Maybe a sub, sub brand of Wearever? The two green ones work fine. The red one appears to have a stuck button as I soaked it in water for 4 days and the button still doesn't move. I don't know how to get water into the barrel to let the cork soak. What are these pens/models? What are they made of?? Age if anyone can tell? Are the nibs decent: (The American nibs are super smooth, but not much flex. The others are more flexible and nice writers nib wise.) I've not pulled any of the nibs, but they are all gold tones and don't appear to have silver coloring anywhere, but non are marked one way or the other. The E. F. nib has a star in a diamond on it. Any and all information and help would be appreciated. They were cheap, so the fact that 3 write straight away is awesome!
