  1. Recently acquired this lovely silver pen and would like more information about the model. I have not found any information about Stylomine pens that were lever fillers. Any background about this model would be greatly appreciated. Nib reads J.M.P. ,18 Cts, UNIS.FRANCE. There is a hallmark on the lever and on the lower end of the barrel that looks like AYL, but I can't be sure. Also two marks on the cap that could be an animal head, but I can't make out what they are. Pen is just over 4 inches or 103mm long capped.
  2. First Impressions (9/10) I came to own this pen as a result of an unintended visit to a jeweller´s shop during a short holiday visiting my in-laws. We went to this shop to buy a silver picture frame as a present for my mother in law, but as they also sell some pens and watches I was wondering around while my dear Mrs. went around her business. They largely sell Montblancs , a few Montegrappas and half hidden behind some golden lighters was this beautiful gem. As I showed some interest the shopkeeper was very kind to take it out of the display cabinet and put it in my hand. I initially thought
  3. I present this little beauty in its classic vintage box. I was super lucky to find this on eBay! Now if only I could find a matching Mastodonte.
  4. Recently I received a Bayard Souverain cartridge fountain pen, made in France probably in the 1970s. It has a nice 18-carat nib with a good amount of flex. I wanted to get it back in service. After exhausting my supply of various makes of cartridges an internet search and French pen blogs indicated pens made by Bayard, Unic and Stylomine use a ‘BUS 5’ cartridge (BUS = Bayard, Unic, Stylomine). The BUS 5 is no longer manufactured. Fortunately my local pen store (Bromfield Pen Shop) came up with a solution. After a number of tries the answer is to use S. T. Dupont propriety ink cartri
  5. Well, the original design as I got tons of mails for this pen, its available finally, although its a very difficult pen to do so it takes time. The system has been tested over 6 months now, the first VAC are shipping by the end of novemeber (the carbon fiber version) A video will be posted soon with the pen in action. A really different pen, even for our standards. https://www.venvstas.com/shamash enjoy.
  6. Dear fountain pen people. One of our best known models have been re-designed and we are going to give away 2 different pens for review and testing purposes before making them available. You can pick the nib you want, and you will be able to keep the pen afterwards, current reviews here or online are from very early models or from stuff that has been changed, or discontinued, or both, plus there is almost no information on the pens. The only condition is that you did already at least 3 reviews on the FPN, that you follow the FPN guide for reviewing, and having a blog or a U-tube channel is
  7. I recently acquired this button filler fountain pen in France. It cleaned up nicely. I've examined the pen with a loupe and cannot find any maker's mark. The plastic (Bakelite? Celluloid?) is substantial and a very nice burgundy-black-gray mottled pattern. It has both top and bottom black jewels. The clip resembles an Edacoto clip except it is unmarked. My guess is the clip is brass while the other metal features seem to be gold plate. The nib is marked: Wellgraph Pointe Iridium with the number 97 in a box.Measurements: Capped 12.6 cm, Posted 14.9 cm, Diameter approximately 1.2 cm Any th
  8. After I took up fountain-penning as a hobby (I used to just use the things before this year), I started seeing this fountain pen for R$ 29 (about 8 US Dollars) on big-box stationary stores. So I bought one! Maped is a French company that makes almost everything related to school and art that I can think of. From that maker, I've got pencil sharpeners, scissors with weird blades, pliable rulers... but didn't even know they made fountain pens. (The back of the package says it’s made, unsurprisingly, in China.) As you might expect for R$ 29, it's not the greatest of pens (as a comparison, L

    Watermans: A French Pen That Has Me Baffled!

    Hello, or perhaps I ought to say, 'Bonjour', This French Watermans pen, possibly a Ligne 60(?), has a filling system that I haven't come across, before. http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/2/5/3/2/1/0/webimg/827324423_tp.jpg Dipped in ink, the 18k nib writes beautifully, but I can't fathom out how to fill the 'cartridge'. The aluminium cartiridge has a hinged, brass tab at the end. Does the cartidge screw, or pull out? I'm reluctant to use force for fear of breaking something. http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/2/5/3/2/1/0/webimg/827324814_tp.jpg http://ti2.auctiva.com/web/supersize/click

    Bayard 656

    This is my latest Bayard-- a 656, circa 1950s. Thanks again to ebay seller amateur25. I decided to play up the pen's shade of green by contrasting it with foliage from our garden. It's inked with Montblanc Red Chalk and the writing sample is written on Clairefontaine. The nib reads P and F with the crossed nibs logo and 18ct as well as 50. Thanks for looking! http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee513/betweenthelens/IMG_4275_zps4d98a37d.jpg http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee513/betweenthelens/IMG_4315_zpsef8e3723.jpg http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee513/betweenthel
  13. I have a friend who is visiting Paris. I was wondering if anyone might have any information on papers that may only normally be available in France. Also, if you are this familiar with France, where are the nice pen shops in Paris? I would like to relay this information to her. If there are any France only papers I may ask her to pick some up to bring back.
