    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. Hi, does anyone have one of these who could compare them in size to other pens they produce - specifically the 02, Marietta or Stabilis 65 please? It doesn't seem to be included in the crucial (for me!) cap off comparison on their website. Thanks!
  3. Hello, I would like to pick a Pen from F-C and I have doubts between Medium Italic vs Stub in steel from Meister Masuyama. I would like to know your feedback if you have tried both. I would pick up an italic because it is supposed to have more line variation. But I am afraid it to be very scratchy, I don't mind if it has a bit of feedback, like a sailor or so, but not too much that it is bothering. Would an italic from Masuyama be smooth or scratchy? Or something in between? I am used to write in cursive, since in Spain print script it is not taught in school. Also it would be great to see wri
  4. Hey Everyone, I've just sent back my Franklin-Christoph medium S.I.G grind in order to exchange for a broad Masuyama italic. Don't get me wrong: the SIG nib was great to write with and I liked it very much; but, since you can't buy Masuyama grinds separately like you can a sig, I've opted for the CI. I'm also interested in learning an italic handwriting script some time, so this makes sense long-term. Now, however, I'm hearing that Masuyama italic grinds are dry writers. One post I've come across was particularly bothersome in that the OP said their f-c Masuyama italic required loads
  5. Well, here it is. F-C's new model, the 45 XLV. http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o535/Keir_Williams/image1-5_zpsucwimyu0.jpg This is my 2nd FC Pen, the first being a 66P. I saw the 45 in Black on their Instagram page, and noticed it was at Initial Price Offering of $90 including worldwide shipping, so I thought I'd take a look, and shortly after looking on the website I purchased it. I bought the Pen on a Thursday night here in the UK, and on Monday morning, the FedEx van called round and delivered it ! That's what I call good service ! http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o535/Keir_Willi

    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?
  7. One Eagle eyedropper and one Franklin plunger (piston?) filler with very little discoloration. The other is a Parker Victory I'm working on.

    Frankin Christoph Terra Firma

    Terra Firma is one of Franklin Christoph's new "Special Colors". This is how they're described on the website: "These are our new inks. These are generally lubricated inks, with moderate shading and some sheening". If this is their version of 'moderate shading', I'd really like to see an ink that FC calls highly shading. More on that in a bit though. First things first: their bottle is very practical, with quite a wide neck. Their label is decent too; its nothing fancy but it certainly is not ugly like the Private Reserve bottles are. I did find it odd that it comes without a box- isn't keep
  9. I came across Franklin Christoph when there was a review here about another FC beauty, Model 02 Intrinsic. After checking up Franklin Christoph website for a while, I have settled for the 1901 model as I prefer big pens. I placed an order for the model 1901 Black with creme bands and a pen tray but the pen was out of stock. I was promptly informed by the sale department there would be a delay of 7 days before the pen was available again in all three colours. It was then I decided to go for the one with cherry ice bands. I ordered the 18K Masuyama medium italic nib to go with the pen. The pe
  10. I am really attracted to http://www.franklin-christoph.com/model-33-abditus.html. I keep postponing buying one because of (the cost and) my concern with it that the pen itself may be a bit thin. As I cannot try and hold one in real life, I would appreciate thoughts and experiences from Model 33 owners. I own different pens and particularly like my Pilot VP's, Pelikan m205, Lamy 2000 and TWSBI 540, just to give you an idea of the diverse type and sizes that I like. Thanks!
