  1. Yes, it's a gift. http://www.giardino.it/IMMAGINI/Mailing/ScatolaFiocco800.jpg It's a Visconti's luxury business card holder, made of genuine Italian soft leather, with magnetic closure, with its hard box and cardboard cover. http://www.giardino.it/IMMAGINI/Mailing/RegaloAperto116.jpg And it comes absolutely free with every Giardino dell'Eden (fountain pen or roller) you buy in Giardino Italiano, until Tuesday, December 3. Don't you know what is the Giardino dell'Eden???? That's it: http://www.giardino.it/IMMAGINI/Mailing/Eden3punte1200.jpg Don't wait: only until December 3.
  2. I am looking for a good pen to give a friend. We meet up a few times a year and I want to give him something that he will like and actually use. He would mostly use it at work and it would need to be something fairly conservatively styled and absolutely reliable. A few years ago we were talking and (surprise!) the subject turned to pens. It turned out that was using and enjoying the Pilot V-pen/Varsity. But he wasn't so keen on disposables, and was very open to something more stylish and business-appropriate. So, sticking with the understated pens and Japanese nib theme, I gave him a Pilot C
  3. The pen in the picture was given to me in December 1990 when I was working for Bull, which is a French computer company. The pen is a Waterman and is in what were then the corporate colours. It came with a single cartridge and I used it till the cartridge ran out and then it languished in its box at the back a drawer until Friday when I found it again. I managed to get a bit of Quink blue into the cartridge and it wrote pretty well. I've now bought some Waterman cartridges & a convertor so I can use it regularly. Does anyone have any idea which Waterman it's based on?
  4. "My First Love" Several years ago, a black version of this pen was sold in the US as the "College Cartridge Pen". I had discovered fountain pens in my freshman year of college with the Sheaffer Reaktor from Walmart. It was night and day compared to the Bics I used up to that point. This was night and day compared to the Reaktor - the nib was buttery smooth, the feed even and reliable, and it was a joy to write with. For more than half a decade and most of a pen worth of replacement parts, it was with me in my pocket nonstop. I put most of a bottle of Sheaffer Turquoise through that thing
  5. Hi everyone! My mother loves these pens, and recently made comments about how she lost her set yada yada.. So i like to make stuff with polymer clay, and recent saw a video on making a ink well holder and a nib pen in a fariy-ish theme. and thought awesome I can make mom a sea themed one. As i was looking on line i see there are more then one type of nib, and I am not rely wanting to make a new pen for every nib, lol So i have a few questions. 1) Are all nibs the same sized around the top part that is inserted into the pen handle? 2) Were can I get a good set of same sized nibs that

    Parker Gift Sets! For Grads Or Dads!

    If you're scrambling for a last minute gift for a Grad or Dad in your life then have a look at our fresh new stock of Parker pen sets. Parker is well established internationally as one of the forefathers of the modern fountain pen. Parker's have become so ubiquitous in the pen world that many "pen standards" have been set based on how Parker did it at first (a Parker-style ballpoint refill is extremely easy to find and will fit into ballpoints from many pen companies). While Parker is still making classic, low-key pens, what many people don't know is that they have a stellar selection of pens
  7. Hello everyone! I've been reading this website for months but this is the first time I post. I wanted to ask you guys to recommend me which pen I should ask for as a gift for my college graduation, with a budget of max 400 dls. I have been considering the following options: Visconti Van Gogh Starry Night, Visconti Dali, Montegrappa Ducale and Espressione and Montblanc 145, but I am open to more suggestions. I have been into fountain pens for a couple of years and I currently own 2 Lamy Safaris and a Sheaffer 100. Which pen would you choose for this special occasion?

    Best. Gift. Ever.

    Disclaimer A: This is most likely the wrong section. Moderators, if you feel this belongs in chatter please move it! Disclaimer B: This is most likely going to sound like pure meaningless gushing. Sorry. As a high school student, I am definitely in the minority of pen type. Luckily, my friends tolerate my fountain pen obsession (it entertains them). I've even tried to convert a couple of them to fountain pens (to no avail). Today, a day before Christmas break, we were exchanging our Christmas gifts with each other. My girlfriend presented me with a small, heavy box. I was thoroughly
  9. I'm hoping to purchase a pre-owned Montblanc fountain pen for my mother as a Christmas gift. I've been doing some light research since yesterday, but this is a topic I know very little about. It should be noted that she also isn't a collector by any means, and I think also isn't particularly knowledgable about pens. But I noticed her admiring someone else's Montblanc a few weeks ago, and I think it would make a neat gift. Because of that, she's not likely to be nit-picky about smaller details, and an overall nice feel is what's most important. I'd like to stay under $200 if possible. Based o
  10. I already posted in the Montblanc forum, but I want to ask this question here as well because I figure this section probably gets more traffic.

  11. I started to collect this by curiosity and I discovered that I don't have the patience for this. There are 8 dip holders with nibs on them, slightly used. Some are not even used. But there are a lot of them in a box and outside that are unused, just tested. Feel free, if in USA, to request to be awarded this gift. Send PM telling me. This is a great opportunity for someone curious about calligraphy, drawing, etc. I only request payment of $6.50 for shipment via Paypal, You have until Friday to make the request. The winner to be announced on Monday 3rd. Thanks. http://i70.photobucket.
  12. A couple of months back Jeff Pearson posted some comments and queries on my blog regarding fountain pens. Later on among the comments and replies, one day he suddenly asked for my mail address as he wanted to gift me certain fountain pens. Thinking it a bit quirky, I avoided it. Later on after more of such requests I finally relented. btw Jeff is a member of FPN (which I came to know later) & having username notimetoulouse So yesterday I got these wonderful fountain pens - Jinhao x450, - love it Kaigelu 316, - had only seen its reviews on FPN Picasso, - had only heard of the brand
  13. Let me preface this by saying that I have no idea if this is the correct forum to post this in, but none of the others seemed to fit exactly. I recently received a gift card for Levenger Pens, worth $75. I want to use this to buy a pen, but Levenger does not carry any of the brands I prefer. For those who do enjoy the products sold at Levenger's site, I wondered if you would like to swap a gift card for a website I can use, mainly gouletpens.com or nibs.com, for the levenger gift card I have. Or even if you do not have a gift card for those places and are simply looking to buy something from L
  14. Before I say anything I think it is important that I set some background information. My mother has been going to the same hairdresser with my grandmother for the past forty years. When I turned seventeen this past year, my grandmother asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I replied asking her if my grandfather (who died when I was young) ever used fountain pens and that it would mean a lot to me to have one if he did. Unfortunately my grandfather did not use fountain pens and instead my grandmother gave me money to by myself a pen and some ink. Now back to the hairdresser; a little w
