  1. Hello! I know I've put this question almost a year ago and people seemed to disagree with me,, but lately I have got vibes that the intuition range of pens from Graf von faber castell is being discontinued. You can barely find it for sale. Ihe ivory color I know for a fact that is discontinued, and I'm beginning to think that the whole range is, because on their official website the range is not being listed anymore. Is anyone more knowledgeable than me? Is it really being discontinued? I really need to know. I recently traded one of my other pens for an Intuition Ivory because I could not f
  2. I have the choice between EF and M on a GvFC classic. I would probably have gone for an F normally but this is really a good opportunity so that is out of the question. I am happy with a fine line, as long as it isn't scratchy and has good flow. I hear GvFCs are on the wetter side so that pushes me towards an EF. Does anyone have any experience or comparison of an EF v M? I've again heard that GvFC, being German, tend towards a broader side of things. For comparison, I have a TWSBI EF which isn't too fine or scratchy for me (I think it's a good one though). I also have a MB 146 M which is a
  3. I bought a Graf von Faber Castell Classic (Pernambuco Wood) fountain pen earlier this year new. I wanted a pen for air travel that had cartridge filling but also had a piston or similar filler system for more economical use when not travelling. It had to have a broad oblique nib. The only other cartridge filling pen I have is a Mont Blanc Bohème where the cartridges seem to quickly self-empty into the cap, on an airplane or not. Pity because it has a nice OB nib, which is more than I can say for its big "Le Grand Meisterstück" sister's OB nib. I was pleased when I got the G v F-C Classic pen.
  4. I just discovered that I am quite unable at doing real "reviews" of the inks that I want to discuss . Apparently, I lack that sort of cool objectivity that makes a true review something a bit impersonal but for this same reason a very useful and unbiased point of view. My point of view is obviously not unbiased, as I am driven by passion, and I have never "reviewed" something that I do not like and, in a way, something that I wouldn't suggest. So, here goes my very personal and subjective opinion about Graf von Faber Castell (GvFC) Olive Green ink. For a complete disclosure: I like it...

    Would You Buy It?

    If someone offered you this pen, used, for ~135$ would you buy it?
  6. Hey guys, I'm planning to buy a Graf von Faber Castell Intuition Platino (with the large nib) and an Anello as you can get both of these pens for quite attractive prices on the German used market. As I never wrote with these pens and don't have a brick and mortar store nearby, I'm contemplating about the right nib size to get. Usually I'm writing with Japanese F or Western EF nibs, so I think that I should go with EF again, but then I read somewhere that the GvFC EF-nibs write quite fine. Could anybody who already owns a GvFC with F or EF nib please compare it to other brands? In particular,
  7. Hello! I'm trying to collect white/ivory pens, but I don't want to have doezens of cheap jinhaos and lingmos, or other cheap brand, and also not extremely expensive one. I might like the statue of zeus pelikan a lot, but it's too expensive for me to be comfortable using it daily, everywhere. Well I guess I'm not trying to collect them, but to own a few nice ones. I own 3 right now (A caran d'ache leman, a montegrappa fortuna, and the Pelikan m600 pink, which is mostly white), I will definitely buy the white tortoise, and I have also another 3-4 pens on my radar right now, and all of them cost
  8. Graf Von Faber Castell Here are my new Graf Von Faber Castell Pencil’s. Alas, still no Perfect Pencil. The difference between these and the Perfect Pencil is the heavy metal cap (is it silver?), integrated sharpener and integrated eraser. Appearance: The pictures speak for themselves. I very much like the look of these. Lead: A lighter, harder lead which nevertheless has a nice soft feel. Goes down nicely on GVFC paper. Here they are… Close- up of the ends… A GVFC pencil resting on it’s GVFC Grain Leather A5 Notebook holder… Face down in their GVFC pencil-pot… As you can see, I’ve be
  9. Hi guys, Check our latest post on Penficionado. Does it deserve to be called Pen of the Year 2015? What is your opinion: http://www.penficionado.com/index.php/2015/06/pen-of-the-year-2015-graf/ Warm regards, Iunal
  10. Hello all, Does anyone know typical resale prices for the Graf von Faber-Castell Pen of the Year series? I've been looking at these pens for a while now and I found many people saying the PotY does not hold it's value well. From that I was they should sell for less than retail price when they come up for auction on eBay. I am interested in the first few years of the PotY models but specifically the 2006 mammoth irovy model. I found some records from about three years ago when a couple PotY 2006 pens were sold at "bricks and mortar" auction houses and they were valued at the time between
  11. Hi, I saw the great reviews of the new Graf von Faber-Castell inks, and I would like to ask if anyone has some experience with the Stone Grey? I have one in the mail along with a bottle of Moss Green, but as it seems it takes way longer than expected to get here...I don't know if they'll arrive this year... Thank you in advance!
  12. I saw some of these pens yesterday in a pen shop in Oxford. I just wondered if anyone has one and what they think of them. How does the Fine nib compare with other brands, and are they all slimline pens?

Why did it take this long? Good question....and it doesn't even matter I think. Here it is http://kepfeltoltes.hu/140807/IMG_001_www.kepfeltoltes.hu_.jpg On the scans you can spot the difference somewhat easily, but to the naked eye they are very similar. The Emerald is a more vivid green, and the Moss Green is just a bit more
  14. So, the cost for Noodler's, Diamine and Toucan inks are downright inexpensive compared to Caran d' Ache and retail on Pilot Iroshizuku. Of course, we all search for deals or spend money with our favorite retailers. The question from Top Pen was should he spend the extra money on CdA? Let's hear from you inky buyers. (Because we all know Amber doesn't need a reason to buy ink).

    Another Beautiful Ink Bottle

    I was walking around a bricks and mortar shop and was grabbed by a beautiful counter display of two bottles of Graf von Faber Castell ink on one of the usual plastic display bases. One bottle was full and one empty, which really showed off the attractiveness of the bottles. Since they were out of stock of the blue, I scribbled a few lines with a dip sample of their "eternal" Carbon Black. I usually use Noodlers Bulletproof Black for specific needs, but it seems to take forever to dry and frequently smudges. The GvFC dried MUCH faster, with no smearing and no unpleasant odor. So I figure
  17. Today I have received the Graf von Faber Castell Pen of the Year 2014 Special Edition and I wanted to share with you a review of this gorgeous pen. For these that are not familiar with the pen of the year series, Graf von Faber Castell started a pen of the year back in 2003 and it did run the programme until 2012. After a break in 2013 they have re-started the series this year with a new concept that has essentially two limited editions. A "regular" limited edition of 1000 pieces (similar in run with previous pen of the year) and a new special edition pen of the year limited to 150 pieces. Y
  18. Hi Everyone, I was just wondering if Graf von Faber Castell stopped selling spare parts online or if I am just not able to find the spare parts section on their website. I would appreciate any help or info. Thank you
