  1. This is my first first review, although by now I've owned and used quite a few fountain pens. Franklin Christoph is one brand I've found myself going back to - perhaps it's their exceptional customer service, perhaps it's the quality of their pens, or perhaps it's because they ship worldwide for free. I had seen a "Smoke & Ice" version of their Model 40, and had been thinking of getting one for a while. So when I saw they're releasing a similar smoke & ice version of their flagship Model 02 (Intrinsic), I just had to get one! Appearance, Material & Design I'll let the photos
  2. So I've been thinking about purchasing one of these for a long time, and I have saved up enough to get one. I have heard great things about them but I don't know a ton about their pens. So I have a few questions. First, what would a good starter pen be? I'm not too worried about price, I just want a good model to start with. I was thinking about the 45L, so what do people think of that pen? A good starter? And does anyone have any more information about Franklin-Christoph? What is unique about these pens that makes people rave about them? Thanks for any information and answers

  4. What's up FPN!? Today is a truly awesome day! I have made a couple of purchases to make my own personally awesome pen! Not doing a lot here, just had an idea an praying it works. If someone has already done this, please chime in. This is what will happen... I'm going to take this pen body: and add this nib to it: Like I said, not a really big deal, but this will be my first time trying something like this. ASA Pens, for a small upcharge, will use Jowo nibs in their pens. This is why I'm thinking it'll work. I'm hoping I can using the entire housing for this too. Again, if you all have
  5. Quick little review of my new Franklin-Christoph Model 03. I usually get fine or extra-fine nibs but oh man! Im loving this broad! Pen - Franklin-Christoph Model 03 Ghost &Smoke Nib - Matsuyama Broad Cursive Italic Ink - Pelikan Edelstein Aventurine Enjoy -240KAR
  6. Hello everyone, I've recently discovered Franklin Christoph pens and I've fallen in love with them. I'm seriously thinking about getting a P66 or a 02, as everyone talks so good about them, but I just have some trouble deciding which nib would fit me better. I hope you can help me. I usually use European M such as Delta, Lamy or MB. I wouldn't like to have a broader nib than those I've mentioned, as I would use the pen for everyday writing, note taking, etc. I've seen everyone recommends getting a Masuyama nib from them, but they only have Fine Italics and then Medium Stub and Italics.
  7. 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

    Franklin Christoph

    I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with Franklin Christoph Pens. I live in Raleigh, NC and they are based in Wake Forest, NC which is one town over and less than 15 min. away. What has been the skuttlebutt?
  9. I'm thrilled that I'll soon have my first Franklin Christoph. I jumped on the Model 02 in antique glass when the opportunity came up a few months ago. I received an email that my pen is ready. I'm likely going with the Masuyama HPS CI - M, or possibly the HPS SIG - F. If you have pics to support your opinion, all the better..... Your input is needed! Quickly, please: Clip or no clip?
  10. http://www.franklin-christoph.com/flex-nib.html Are these new? Dying to see writing samples.
  11. I first saw this pen after a reddit user linked to it in kenshiro's masterpiece demonstrator collection thread a few months back. I love clear demonstrators and fat nibs; when I learned that Franklin-Christoph made the 66 Ice with a 1.9mm, three-tined music nib, it got put on the list. Then, some Christmas cash made it happen. And it arrived Saturday. Impressions http://i.imgur.com/tCj31Bx.jpg One of the first things that intrigued me about this pen was the cap threads being on the nib-end of the section. FC does this with their Models 02, 03, and 65/66. These front threads mean th
  12. I'm considering getting a Franklin-Christoph P66 and I'm having trouble deciding on the finish. I'm considering Emerald but I'm a little uncertain about the color (it doesn't seem to get mentioned much). Is the material translucent enough to see the ink level in the barrel when eyedroppered? Pictures of any Emerald Franklin-Christoph would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  13. I have had the worst luck when it comes to Eyedropper pens. They always burp and leak on me, really badly. I had hoped that the 66 Stabilis I ordered wouldn't have had the same issues, seeing the nib unit was a screw in type of one piece. Sadly this was not to be, but I would like to get other peoples' experiences just in case I'm doing something wrong or there is an actual fault with the nib unit. I have the pen eyedroppered and filled with Sailor ink. I followed the instructions on the Franklin Christoph website about greasing the threads of the nib unit and the thread of the barrel. I tur
  14. I love blues – from lovely turquoise to deep blurples. Last year, I ran across L’Artisan Pastellier Callifolio inks. L’Artisan Pastellier is a “boutique” brand that specially formulate fountain pen inks under the Callifolio name. They are made in France and are not widely distributed. L’Artisan Pastellier are better known for their dyes made for art products. I was able to obtain some samples of a few of their inks and liked them. I ordered a few more and like them as well. I picked up a few of their foil bottles at a pen show, then late last year, I ordered a dozen more foil bottle
  15. Yes, the twins are here and I love them (Pardon the low quality pictures)! Here they are, - Fosfor Sandalwood with a Franklin Christoph HPS #6 Masuyama Needlepoint Nib - Fosfor Islander in Red Burl with the Franklin Christoph #6 Music Nib The F-C nibs were a gift from a friend and I was given the freedom of choosing the nibs. My limited experience with EF or F nibs (limited to lower end Indian and Japanese nibs) left me wanting more and I was on the lookout for something that I could use for sketching and quick notes (among a few other things). The music nib was to continue to prac

    Christoph Music Nib Review

    Above is a sample of how the very wet Christoph Nib fares on the cheapest paper I have yet to encounter. I don't have a macro lens, but here goes my best shot at approximating the appearance of the nib. It is beautiful without being gaudy. A Gothic or Old English capital "C" is present, contrary to the "F" generally presents. The music nib has three tines, and the feed has two channels. Rays of what appear to be sunshine are bursting from the center of the nib. The nib does not contain a breather hole, and this has not seemed to affected the flow of the pen. This will hopefull
  17. Hello, I'm quite new to the fountain pen world. I'm a student, so I use my pens every day (TWSBI Diamond 580 and Franklin Christoph model 40 pocket) I was really pleased with the model 40 pocket, so I now got my eyes on the model 19 "1901" To the owners of this pen: What you think of it? How is the writing experience? is it worth the money?
  18. I have only recently entered the hobby, and I own a few pens such as a Faber-Castell Ambition, a TWSBI Diamond 580, as well as a few staples in the hobby like a Lamy Safari and a Pilot Metropolitan. Now I am looking for a nicer, more luxurious pen less than $200. I was highly considering a Lamy 2000 because of it's reputation and its gold nib. On the other hand I am just CAPTIVATED by the Smoke and Ice finish of the Franklin-Christoph Model 02 Intrinsic--as well as its ability to be converted to an eyedropper. I would greatly appreciate any insight from you all. I feel like both are soli
  19. So I've decided to buy myself a birthday pen, but my dilemma is choosing what pen. So I've decided to enlist the help of the FPN board members and base my decision upon your recommendation's. I've narrowed it down between 10 pens of which to choose from. They are as follows; Pilot Custom 742 SFM Black ~$163 Sailor 1911 Full Size Black w/ Silver trim FM ~$163 Platinum 3776 Chatres Blue F ~$84 *Delta Dolce Vita PISTON F ~$350* Franklin Christoph Model 19 '1901' Kings Gold Bands .9mm MM Custom stub ~$195 Aurora 88 Large Silver trim Fine ~$350 **OMAS Arte Italiana Noir Milord (331 made in each s
