  1. Hi, everyone. I was just transferring my Lamy Dialog 3 Piano White from one storage case to another, and I noticed that the pen has got these stains running up and down the length of the body. These stains are a bit of a surprise to me since I've pretty much babied this thing and have used it sparingly. At this point, I'm thinking that the staining is something that happened while the pen was in storage in one of three Franklin-Christoph pen cases that I have and use. Attached are two photos that show the staining. I tried to rub this off with some distilled water and a microfiber cloth with
  2. Having thinned my collection with some selling on eBay I am now able to purchase a long awaited Franklin-Christoph pen. There's plenty of information on their web site but the breadth of the range and subtle differences between the various pens mean it's hard to get a handle on which one would suit. I'm based in Australia, so going to a Pen show and trying one before buying isn't an option. My pen preferences are for pens weighing 17g to 24g, not too long (a posted Lamy Al-Star is too long for me) and for F to M nibs, including stubs. Think vintage Pelikan 140/400nn or modern Pelikan 200/4
  3. Already sold out. It's an Ice blue 45 XLV model. Somehow much more expensive than the original one. https://bung-box.com/products/detail2228.html
  4. Hey everyone! I've been checking the F-C website every once-in-a-while to see if the Model 40 Panther has come into stock yet. No luck on that yet. However, it seems that F-C has released a new color, orange, of their pocket sized notebook in a limited production run. Only 75 pieces have been made so if you're interested give it a look! http://www.franklin-christoph.com/the-stock-room.html It seems that the price is the same as the regular pocket sized leather notebooks. Notebook alone is $25.00, $31.25 with shipping in the US. Orders over $50 get free shipping so if you want to s
  5. Hey everyone! So I've been hunting for a new fountain pen for the last while and was recommended to look into the Franklin-Christoph offerings. One in particular caught my eye, the Model 40 Panther. On Franklin-Christoph's website it says they come out infrequently, I was hoping to acquire one due to how beautiful it looks but they are not in stock. Are they on a rotating schedule or do they only come out at random? Thanks!

  7. I love this ink, and I should have bought a second bottle when my first one leaked a little over the label on my way back to the hotel through the remnants of the 20+ inch accumulation blizzard at the memorable and thoroughly enjoyable 2015 Philadelphia Pen Show. It's a wonderful dark green that, in a fine nib can initially be confused with black. I've had no problems with vintage lever-fill pens, and it's easy to clean. I'm 3/4 of my way through my bottle, and I'd be interested in hearing about any similar inks (or mad scientist mixtures) for when it finally runs out. Thanks!
  8. Please feel free to read my ink review: https://drpenfection.tumblr.com/post/170472057950/ink-review-franklin-christoph-ink-18-philly Also, please let me know if you have any problems with the above link. Is this inconvenient? I would appreciate your thoughts. I decided to post this on Tumbler as I thought it might be easier for photo posting. Your comments would be appreciated.

    Looking To Buy A New 1.1Mm Nib

    I am looking to buy a new 1.1mm nib for my Aldo Domani two tone pen. I had a Knox nib in there, but have since switched that nib out to a Jinhao X750, leaving my poor Aldo Domani with its plain old factory nib. I'm having a difficult time choosing a new nib for this pen...most of the available nibs are made by JoWo (Franklin-Christoph, Gouet Pens, Anderson Pens, Edison Pens, Monteverde) and are likely more or less the same (although I do wonder if the nibs made for F-C or Edison might be made to more exacting standards or with slightly different specs than the standard JoWo nibs), so I am no
  11. Someone will be smacking me over the head with something.... My lovely friend, gave me samples of pretty much the whole line (I am missing three, I believe).. That was almost 6 weeks ago !!!!!... I did sample/review them approx 5 weeks ago, but I keep forgetting to post them.. I am a horrible friend... (Plus, I've been busy with Robert Oster Signature Inks.. but don't tell her that) In any case... here it goes.. Intro.. I had the pleasure to play with the following: Spanish BlueBlue 72 (What an odd name)Noir et BlueTenebris Purpuratum (what an AWE
  12. Franklin-Christoph Model 31 “IPO” through Massdrop Franklin-Christoph released a new pen model last month via an “initial public offering” exclusive on Massdrop. (www.massdrop.com) I have several Franklin-Christoph pens and greatly admire their designs, quality of materials and stellar service. The new “Model 31” appeared to have many attractive elements, and the IPO price was attractively discounted, so I ordered one. I expect it will be made available on the Franklin-Christoph web site sometime soon. I received the pen just a few days ago. I inked it immediately and have some initial imp
  13. 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
  14. 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

  18. I'm in the market for a new fountain pen, specifically a big, wacky, eye-catching one. I've narrowed it down to two options: the Franklin-Christoph Abditus (model 33) or the Lamy Dialog 3. Anyone have any input about which one I should spring for? Some preliminary internet-ing has brought up some lukewarm reviews of the Dialog 3: it sounds like some people have found that the pen dries up easily. However, I've also noticed that most of these reviews are from about five years ago, while more recent ones specifically say that they have not had this problem. The other common theme among reviews
  19. I just saw on Massdrop that Franklin-Christoph came up with a new model and it's called Model 31. It's on Initial Public Offering (IPO) on Massdrop. Looks nice. It's available in Italian ice finish or Coco Pearl finish.
  20. I am going to buy a F-C pocket 66 solid ice fountain pen, but am not sure which nib to get. I prefer extra fine nibs for daily writing, but like the line variation found in stub nibs. F-C offers something called an HPS S.I.G. extra fine and I was wondering if anybody knew if that was kind of like a thin-writing stub nib?
  21. Hi, I am fortunate to have a Franklin-Christoph 02, Smoke and Ice, and thinking about eyedropping it. I wonder how easy it is to clean up. Does the ink get off the ice finish easily? Does it leave stain inside the barrel? I use Iroshizuku Kon-peki, Ku-jaku, Yama-budo, Tsutsuji, and Noodler's Apache Sunset, 54th Massachusetts. This will be my first eyedropper. Thank you for sharing your experience! Sue (1st post)
  22. Or "A very brief comparison of Masuyama nibs with a S.I.G.". Either way, it sounds like a fun time, am I right? Long story short, I agonized over my choice of Masuyama broad italic vs stub when I got my first Franklin-Christoph pen. Writing samples I could find were often not the broads or not in direct comparison to one another. I ended up with the italic for that one, but after a while, I was curious what I was missing not having the stub. Curiosity got the best of me & the next time I got an F-C, the stub was a must. All good for a time. Then this mysterious Stub Italic Gradient sho

    Franklin-Christoph Spanish Blue

    Franklin-Christoph is a pen maker in North Carolina, USA and they also have a line of inks. It's not a big line, but every now and then they add a color or two in their "special colors". One of these is called Spanish Blue. It's a light blue that's not quite green enough to be turquoise, but some may call it that anyway, and they may well be correct in their judgement. It's very similar in hue to a number of other inks including MB Honoré de Balzac LE, though with not as much green and not as saturated; KWZI Turquoise, but not as saturated; Sailor KN Porpita porpita, but not as straight blue a
