I am looking for information on a Böhler Glorex model. The pen has "Böhler Glorex" on the cap.The nib is marked "Degussa" and has a half-sun logo (presumably gold-plated steel). I have yet to write with it (it's filled with water, rehydrating the cork), but it looks like a Fine-grade nibIt is a piston-filler, with blind cap.The back of the barrel is marked 36 and FL It's my understanding that the manufacturer is Böhler, and the model is Glorex. So, can anyone tell me what the << 36 >> and the << FL >> indicate? My best guess (poor as that is) is that they mean the following: 36 is either the year of production (1936, though that seems a little early) or some kind of sub-model name (i.e. Glorex 36) FL indicates Fine Left-handed. Ideas? Thanks in advance!
Hi Folks, Recently I acquired a Bohler Glorex c. 1930. Long story short- the piston mechanism was shot. I was able to disassemble the pen, successful only that the EXCELLENT Degussa nib/feed section is intact. The only other pen on hand is a Koh-i-noor Acetograph and seems the section (threaded) might accommodate the Degussa nib/feed. Though I don't know enough to proceed and must prevent further damage. Inside the section is caked with ink- though i was able to write-as it was (like an extended dip pen) before my problem solving began. Are the nib and feed removable? Do i transplant the section as-is to another pen, if so, what kind? Any direction/suggestion are much appreciated!
