    Franklin-Christoph 40 Panther

    I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to acquire a Franklin-Christoph 40 (Panther) recently. They don't come up for sale that often, so you have have to keep an eye on the F-C stockroom and be quick! My 40 has gold-white-gold bands on the cap. From a distance, the gold is more like a subdued light brown. But when you look at it in bright sunlight, the gold sparkles and shimmers. Like most of the F-C pens, the body of the pen is made from acrylic. All the 40 models so far are in black, with the variations being the colors of the bands. I like simple, ungaudy designs, wh
  2. Hello, I'm fairly new to the world of fountain pens. I've picked up about 10 now, and I keep buying more and enjoying tinkering with them. I have purchased high priced pens for my g/f (high-priced for me), like the vanishing point and the Lamy 2000. For myself, though, I can not imagine spending that amount on a pen. Up to this point, I have been doing the frankenpen thing with Jinhao pens and Anderson / Edison / Goulet nibs. I went to the Dallas Pen Show, and I purchased a Franklin-Christoph nib assembly. I had to remove the nib and feed from the F-C section / collar. However, even as just
  3. Just got in the mail today a Franklin-Christoph Pocket 66! It looks so cool eyedroppered. I got it with the Masuyama medium stub. I have the #5 version of that nib and liked it. It does not have a lot of variation but it does write nice. Maybe next time I will get the broad stub. I found I did not care for the S.I.G. nibs and the ones I tried were not much sharper then the stub version in the same size, but would sometime catch paper on me. I think that is just me not the fault of the nib. http://driften.dragonsightsoftware.com/images/F-CPocket66.jpg
  4. My F-C Model 31 PC showed up in today's mail and I think I really like it. This set of materials is a Pen Chalet exclusive and actually has a PC engraved over the 31 on the cap. Speaking of the engraving its very finely done and nicer then on my Amber Model 45 XLV. This is my second F-C so I don't know if other solid color ones are engraved as nice. The black like my other black pens does show finger prints, but that is nothing new. I like the transparent section and final. F-C calls that bronze to be different then the smoke color used in other models. The pen is heavier and thicker then I

    Franklin-Christoph Midnight Emerald

    A while back Franklin-Christoph added some inks to their "special color" line. I'm not sure how the "special color" line relates to their "regular" line of inks. Their Midnight Emerald seems to be a darker version of the Emerald (bright green) ink. I tend to like murky greens, so I picked this one up a while back. The Midnight Emerald is a moderate valued, fairly pure green that leans strongly to blue. It's no where near as dark as Diamine Deep Dark Green or even F-C's own Loden, which is great. There's nothing really wrong with the handling, but the color is just not so interesting for me p
  6. Folks, here’s a quick review of my recently-acquired Franklin-Christoph Marietta 20. In a nutshell, I love this pen. I have two Stabilis 65s from F-C, which are in ice (i.e. see-through), which I turned into eye-droppers for red and blue ink. I wanted a basic black pen for everyday writing in black. Of the three F-C pens I have, this is my favorite. Here is the F-C site for those interested: http://www.franklin-christoph.com/view-all-fountain-pens.html I should admit from the outset that I dislike pens that have metal barrels, are heavy, gaudy or jewel-encrusted. This pen is th
