  1. Yesterday, I received from Grifos, the Italian pen maker based near Turin, Italy, the Grifos Masonic Square & Compasses (the “Masonic”) fountain pen with a medium gold-plated nib. I inked it up with Waterman Purple ink, began writing with it the same day, and have written with it today. First, here are photos I’ve taken, and then I’ll provide my early first impressions of the pen. This Grifos pen appears to be unique among the many Grifos offerings on its website; those other models normally contain heavier components, including more metal. Th
  2. Back in the mid-to-late 1990s, I was fortunate to be a part-time online U.S. retailer of a few brands, including Cesare Emiliano ("CE") pens, made by Grifos (CEO: Maurizio Sturza) in Milan, Italy. I was, and still am, a fan of this brand, although I understand from other postings at FPN that CE no longer is an active brand, although Grifos is. I wanted to show you what remains in my inventory, even though I'm solely a collector now, I'm not selling anything, and I want to retain these pens in my overall collection. My CE pens are a very small set of the great variety of styles and finishes th
  3. Here's a sampling of the Grifos pens we will be bringing to Ohio. Handmade in Italy, alll start with solid sterling silver, guilloché engraved and then combined with other precious/exotic materials. Included are our new line of sustainable leathers (including various fish leathers, all of which are one of a kind). Stop by our table at the show to see or try them out!
  4. Im trying to justify adding an 18kt gold nib to an order for a Grifos Pen. I dont recognize the markings on the nib and Im not completely familiar with the brand and what nibs they use. Is the nib worth an extra $160 over steel? The pen is made in Italy but I know nothing about the nib maker. Maybe the good people on FPN can tell me if its worth the up charge? I have a couple hours to make the decision so no time to email the manufacturer. Its a massdrop deal.

    Grifos Vs Montegrappa !

    A friend of mine asked me an advise as he is going to get one of these pens from massdrop : Grifos Pen and the City Fountain Pen https://www.massdrop.com/buy/grifos-pen-and-the-city-fountain-pen Montegrappa Ducale Fountain Pen https://www.massdrop.com/buy/motegrappa-ducale-founatin-pen Montegrappa Game of Thrones Fountain Pen https://www.massdrop.com/buy/montegrappa-game-of-thrones-fountain-pen-bundle unfortunately I haven't use any of them ....I hope to get some thoughts from you and so far I don't think there is budget issue
  6. I received the Grifos Nero Muse Bog Oak Wood that I bought on Massdrop. Only after receiving this pen did I realise that I had completely wasted almost SGD 200. The pen is made of 5000 year old wood and has sterling silver accents, which are nice I admit. The shape, design and weight of the pen are also pleasing. But what really irritates me is that the nib writes worse than my Pilot Metropolitan. I have 3 other pens in my collection, excluding the Grifos, a Pelikan M200, an old Sheaffer and the Pilot. The Grifos is not only the most expensive of the bunch, but also the worst. The threads on t

    Grifos Repair

    Hello all - This is my first time in any forum, so please forgive me if I do something incorrectly. I am wondering if anyone knows of a pen repair shop that might be able to fix my very favourite Grifos fountain pen. It is a celluloid and sterling pen, with the sterling being the broken portion. I unscrewed it to check the ink supply in the converter, and when I put it back together something popped and the parts would no longer screw together. I spoke with a couple of different repair places and they all said that they wouldn't be able to get parts for the pen. I am trying to avoid having
