  1. 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)?
  2. 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

  4. 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
  5. 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!

    Bril Fountain Pen

    Bril is a company based in South India known for producing very good inks. They generally do not produce pens(Somebody can correct me if this is wrong). So, I was pleasantly surprised when I had an opportunity to buy a Bril Pen and immediately grabbed it. I bought it from Sreekumar, who is a nibmeister with a bunch of other pens. The price of this pen is just 50 INR(<1$). At this price range, I was blown away at how smooth the nib performs and how pleasantly it writes. The Bril pen is a all plastic body pen and the plastic is sort of cheap looking. It comes with 2 Bril catridges fille

    Ab Conklin Chicago

    Hello everyone, Does anyone have any information about the AB Conklin brand? Though the nib is marked "Chicago," this pen and nib look like they predate the 1938 Chicago acquisition of the Conklin Pen Company of Toledo by quite a few years. I'm quite interested in the story of this pen, because it is in excellent condition, and seems to be a high quality pen with a very flexible nib.

    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 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.)

  10. I got 3 Laban Pens & out of those 2 have very bad nibs . I wrote to them and it has been around 6 months & I haven't heard back from you. How has been your experience with them?
  11. Hi, I am looking to buy a pilot custom 74 in a fine nib(soft is preferred). My only criteria is that it writes smooth and isn't too weared out. If you have a custom 74 you'd like to sell or trade, hit me up and we can talk about the pricing!
  12. Can any one suggest me some Indian handmade ebonite piston-filler pens? I know of Noodler's Konrad Ebonite and Narwhal Schyulkill Eobnite 365, but I want an Indian handmade one. Does anyone in India make such pens?

    Montblanc Boheme Rouge Ballpoint Pen.

    Dear Forum. I apologise in advance in case this is not for what the forum is meant for. I have been trying to convince my father that the Montblanc which was given to him as a present, not a long time ago, is actually a fake one, but he refuses to believe me. He has shown me uncountable tests proving that the pen is authentic [The material does glows in red(if we put a flashlight under the cap), the Montblanc peek/logo looks good, its serial number seems correct, and with high quality, the engravings like Pix(under), and Germany, are written on the clip and can be read
  14. I would like to introduce you my last Leonardo fountain pen: The Leonardo Momento Zero Grande Golden Rule. This a collaboration with J.Brooks, who made this beatiful resin, where bronze and red are mixed to create a fusion of warm colors. Limited edition to only 70 pieces worldwide. The first time I saw this pen I fall in love due to the red parts among the bronze style resin. After seeing the feed, made out of red ebonite... that was the end of my piggy bank. I got it at "Fontana Penna" in Spain. Now that it has arrived to me, I have been deeply impressed by it and I could no
  15. How long does it take for the Kaweco fountain pens to ink the first time? I inserted the cartridge that goes with it but its not writing The ink in the cartridge is not dry. I have shaken the pen and everything and no ink is coming out. Im leaving it pointed down waiting for the ink. I'm using a double broad nib.
  16. Hello there, this is my first post here. Currently I'm using the decimo and pro gear slim the most and I enjoyed both metal and resin pens. But I wonder are there any good wooden pens? I would like to have one as I like the touch of wood. I have seen pilot custom maple and sailor precious wood, but are there any more choices? I know wooden pens are not a common choice, but there should be some more. I don't have much budget, so 300usd is maximum and I would like a gold nib. Thank you so much!
  17. I do not know if SYAHI pens is still operating but they make beautiful wooden pens. There is also Lotus Shikhar in Sandalwood and I know Lotus also makes sandalwood pens in other models. It will be great if there is someone like Ryan Krusac in India, who makes pens in different types of woods.

    Greetings from Dublin!

    Hello everyone: I'm Nestor, I came here to learn more about Fountain Pens. I've always loved them but just started to collect them last year. As of now my humble collection is made of 24~ pens and couple of bottles of ink. I love Fountain Pens because it honors the tradition of handwriting while conveying care and commitment in any letter or card.

    Duofold Roller To Fountain Pen

    Does anyone know if you can convert a Parker Duofold rollerball into a fountainpen, by replacing it's front section with one of a fountainpen? I found a rollerball mosaic red for sale, but since I don't use rollerballs I wanted to know if it is posible to convert it into a fountainpen if I have a modern duofold fountain pen and exchange the sections between them. Thanks in advance!
  20. Maybe a year ago, I embarked on a journey to learn various finishing techniques for fountain pens owing to the fact that many of the Indian pens I own, weren't that well finished. Lathe marks, inconsistent polishing etc. Fast forward to now, I have worked on many of my pens and also on many friends's pens. I can now take a poorly finished pen to a mirror like polished pen and this is extremely satisfying on an ebonite pen. Over time, I also learnt how to do a baakul (rough tree like) brushed finish found on many black ebonite pens from India. Today, I present one of those pens on which I've
  21. I just got hold of a couple of NOS Parker 15 pens from the Newhaven-era. One is a Matte Black GT and the other a Energy Yellow Demostrator. I want to create a frankenpen out of the two by using the clear section of the Demo on the Matte Black cap and barrel, but I want the gold nib on this clear section. Anyone knows how to safely remove the nibs out of these pens? Thanks beforehand!
  22. Hi, I found a Sheaffer fountain pen in an op shop, can anyone please help to identify what model it is? The only markings I can see is gold electroplated USA. Thank you. Thank You.
  23. 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
