  1. This is a review of “Kaco Master”. It’s the best Chinese Fountain pen I have come across till now.Kaco is a young company which makes some great products. Kaco since its inception in 2011 have launched many pens & accessories . This “Kaco Master” is among their most premium offerings .This has German Made Gold Nib , it doesn’t feel like it’s made by Jowo or Bock. It feels a bit different from those both. I think they are made by special order or made by some other company ! Pros- – Great 14k Gold Nib – Well Tuned Out Of The Box – Soft & Springy Nib –
  2. HI, I'm new to the network having a revived interest in fountain pens over lockdown, resurrecting some old pens and adding a few (too many!) new ones... lots of fun!! I have some pretty dry inks and some F and EF nibs, and after research I'm wondering if getting some White Lightning Ink Additive might help the pens write a bit wetter. However, I cant seem to find a UK retailer that stocks the product and paying almost $40 for shipping seems a bit OTT... Does anyone know of a retailer that stocks it in the UK or Europe? Thanks, Joe
  3. Pros- Huge Ink Capacity Shut-Off-Valve prevent leaks & burps. Unique Ice-Effect Design Well Balanced Good Quality Material used – Scratch Resistant The Jowo nib on my Opus 88 writes flawlessly. Nice Packaging Comfortable even when used capped Fits perfectly even in people with small hands. Affordable Price Tag Good EDC Pen Cons- It takes many turns to uncap – 3 turns!!!! You need to open valve for long writing sessions Some Other Specs You Should Know – Nib Material – Steel Body Mate
  4. Hey guys! Normally post in the Japan pens forum but I picked up a TWSBI 580ALR from Mark Bacas with a special nib grind and I wanted to share some info about it. First off - the ALR is just like an AL except the cap band has a difference finish(?) and most importantly the grip section is 'ribbed.' The lines on the grip section feel amazing, really good to the touch. I consider it an upgrade from my AL, but you do have to be careful not to get ink in those lines because you would have to clean it out. Mark Bacas is a popular nibmeister. You can see his work at https://www.instagram.com/n

    Lingmo Lorelei Review

    Hi everyone. First review here and open to suggestions. This is largely pulled from my blog post on the Lorelei with minor edits for your reading pleasure! Appearance The Lorelei appears to be a dupe of the Sailor Procolor 500. Mine is a clear demonstrator with silver trim and the clear feed displays inks quite nicely. The brand name”LingMo” is engraved on the trim of the cap in a similar manner found on the Sailor Procolor. Even the font used is similar to Sailors and the similarities don’t end there. LingMo Lorelei Converter. Potential Sailor CON dupe.Filling System The pen came with a
  6. Recently I was going through the youtube there I saw a fountain pen never heard off....the name is Parker Folio Fountain Pen. Any update regarding this pen?
  7. I came across a “Worth” gold plated pen. I thought maybe it was a Woolworth store pen. Has anyone else run into a Worth pen? thanks

    Japanese Custom Ink Blender

    Watched a wonderful story tonight on NHK World News about a Japanese gentleman who blends custom colored inks for his customer's fountain pens. Story starts at 08:31: https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/programs/#1005
  9. The Caran d'Ache 849 Ballpoint was the only ballpen I ever considered buying since I got into the habit of spending large sums of money on writing instruments, almost 5 years now. Knowingly or Unknowingly I never got myself to buy the (ballpoint)pen.Around March of this year,the Fountain Pen iteration of the Ballpoint was teased, it was love at first tease and so began the constant badgering of various pen retailers regarding launch and availability,always ending in disappointment,until Pen Chalet listed it on their website(first?) (June 20th) and I wasted no time in ordering mine. In eye blee

  16. So here are some thoughts on my two Kanwrite Heritage pens - One in Green marbled pattern and the other in Blue marbled. One with a Fine nib (currently the blue, but it changes), and one with a medium. I will also talk a bit about writing with the KW Fine Flex nib which had brought separately for another pen (this is I think the same nib as the Noodler's flax pens). TLRD: the pens are great value for a price of under $30; the nibs (and feeds) and ergonomics are the real stars. Filling mechanism is dependable. The body is pleasing to the eye albeit without feeling premium (but acceptable qu
  17. With the recent Stipula Etruria thread that was posted in this sub, I thought it was high time we had a dedicated photo thread for the Montegrappa Extra. This can include the earlier Classica and Historia models, along with the more modern variants including the Extra, Extra 1930 and Extra Otto. The key here is to share what you have no matter the size of your collections or your photography skills, so that we may appreciate, discuss and enjoy the variety of trims, nibs and colours these exquisite pens are available in. My hope is that this will breathe a little more passion into this model

  19. Pros- Beautiful Finish Perfectly Balanced Amazing Nib (both steel & gold nibs are amazing). Snap Cap Very Solid Pen, Almost Indestructible Comfortable grith Great Packing Cons- Price is very higher for steel nib variant , you will get too many gold nibs in this price segment. Clip is tight. Diplomat don’t has good Customer Service, incase your pen turns out to be faulty. It’s a Heavy Pen, And people with small hands won’t like this pen.

  20. THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!

    • For Sale
    • Used

    Inked a couple of times. Dipped a few times. Sitting in a desk unused for several years. Bought from a Montblanc Boutique in Troy, MI in late 2006. Stamped on the warranty booklet. Model 3497. You can see the serial number in the picture. The cap is pinstripe gold and the body of resin - my terrible pictures don't do it justice. The model was discontinued. It's a 144 size that works with cartridge or converter. Comes with box, warranty card and converter. Was inked a couple of times and is now cleaned out with distilled water. You may be able to see there is slight tarnish / discoloration on the gold plated clip ring at the end of the section, which is common, I believe. I may have left the pen with some ink residue on that clip for a while. Normal desk wear from it being moved around a bit. Please PM me with questions, more pictures, writing samples. Price does not include shipping. Will be approx $20 in the CONUS, including insurance and tracking. More if outside CONUS. Proceeds will go to charity to help with food and education: 33%: https://fcpsfoundation.org/impact/kids-in-need/ 33%: https://www.foodforothers.org 34%: Food / Education charity of your choice. (Please pick one with < 10% of revenue spent on Admin and overhead expenses.)

  21. I know it’s a very subjective question, but what would be your “THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE” pen? Hello vastly knowing Fountain Pen People! I’m a writer belatedly celebrating my first book deal and wanted to get a “fancy” fountain pen, but as one uninitiated into the realms of FP experts, I’ve spent a few weeks reading through the forum and watching a gazillion review videos. I am left more confused then ever - so many options. so I thought I’d ask the experts. if you had up to 1.5k USD to spend on a modern pen, and it was your only FP, what would you get (and why)?
  22. Introduction This is a review of the "Master" from Kaco. I saw precious few reviews of this pen while I was researching for it, for possible purchase, either on youtube or written. I took a chance based on a few comments regarding the quality of the nib, and I am very glad that I did. This is one of those occassions where a gamble pays off. This is one of the best, if not the best, Chinese pens that I own - compared to 5 pens form PenBBS, 5 from Moonman and a couple of Wing Sungs and Jinhaos. This is also the most expensive Chinese made pen that I own, beating the 14K WingSung 698 and
  23. Hello, Recently my father gave me his old parker fountain pen that he no longer used, i've been trying to identify the model but so far have found only this similar one sold in an auction, "Parker 111L". On the middle it says "Brazillian Industries" and "Parker" with the logo . As far as i'm aware Parker had a factory here in Brazil from 1958 to 1990. Apologies for the poor image quality. Cheers, Mark
  24. Hi. Found this old fountain pen at my family’s home. Can anyone tell my the model and year? Is it something worthwhile repairing? Thanks for help!
