  1. Hi, Please can someone identify my fountain pen? It only has the word 'Italy' on the top of the clip. It has an IPG nib without the ornate decoration on it. It is nicely weighted when the top is attached to it. Thank you.
  2. Hi, I want to replace nibs in my pens. Where can I buy spare jowo or schmidt nibs in India ? I know, FPR sells spare nibs. But, I am interested in German nibs. thanks, Dinuraj

    Where Is This Nib Unit From?

    Hello, This Brazilian pen maker, Crown, uses this nib unit in all but their most expensive pens. I've seen pics of pens on Google that use that very same nib unit, and I wonder if anybody know where it's made. I'm guessing China. I started investigating this nib unit after I got frustrated with how little information Crown has on their website regarding their manufature or even brand history. I had to Indiana Jones on Google to find out who owned Crown but I still can't even find where they make their inks for example. It seems they don't actually make anything but order bits and pieces from everywhere and maybe assemble them in Brazil. Maybe. Well, have you seen this nib unit before? It's not clear in the picture, but "Iridium Point Germany" is engraved on the nib, which Brian Grey from Edison Pen was really helpful when he blogged about it in 2009. That made me come just a little closer, though: Crown nib units are made (possibly) in some rough form by JoWo or Bock and finished up... anywhere in the planet (possibly China). So... has anybody seen this very same nib unit somewhere, used by some other manufacturer that's maybe a little more forthcoming when it comes to where/how they make their pens? It might help me track it down. Thanks!
  4. I inherited this pen from my late grandpa this past Christmas. There are zero identifying marks, beyond "Iridium Point W. Germany" on the nib. My best guess is that it's a #5 nib, probably a western EF, and gold (or gold-color) plated over steel. The nib is not magnetic. It's a cartridge-converter that takes standard international cartridges. I can easily pull the nib and feed out for cleaning/readjustment. It's about the size and heft of a Waterman Hemisphere. I'm guessing it was bought in the early-mid 70's, but that's just a guess based on my grandpa's work history - it could have been purchased right before the wall fell for all I know. (The purple is from a VP, not this pen.)
  5. I feel a certain pleasure and pride in introducing and reviewing Click Pure Crystal. For quite some time I have been searching for affordable "made in India" fountain pens, I could recommend to anyone. I guess I have found one more such pen. I have been using this pen for three days and without a glitch. As you can notice, the pen is fully transparent. The gold-colored clip and cap ring give the pen a classy appeal. Perhaps its me, but the design of the clip is coolest thing about this pen. The clip reminds me of Egypt, Pharaohs and Pyramids. The golden aura of the pen matches with the dual tone nib. Inner rings of the piston look like whirlpools and threads give me a feel of sporadic clouds in an otherwise clear sky. It is a pen I wouldn't be ashamed of carrying. The pen weighs around 14 grams. Which is fairly light. The body is made of transparent resin. The great thing is that there wasn't any of that obnoxious odor of resin, unless the pen was smelled from very close quarters. I feel that the pen can be fully disassembled, though I couldn't dare to try it. I don't want a blot on this beauty. Close inspection of section also reveals that the pen boasts of a threaded nib unit. Nib is a dual tone one marked with sagacious words,'Iridium Point Germany'. Section ends with a gold ring and immediately the nib starts. The finish of the pen is really good for its price. What startled me is the fact that apparently a good amount of brainstorming has gone in designing this pen. Take for example the fact that the pen comes out in merely two turns. Or the fact that the cap posts very securely. Or the good news that they have made the section substantially thicker than Pilot 78G or the Chelpark Sona or Click Majestic Crystal. Thicker section ensures a comfortable grip and the fact that the pen allows secure posting further permits the pen to be used by hands of every size. The pen writes an Indian fine. It lays down a smooth and wet line. There is a little drag but my experience suggests that it will go away. The thicker section and smooth transition from body to the section with light weight makes this pen a delight to hold and write with. The piston filler mechanism means that the pen can hold a decent amount of ink that will last far more pages than a cartridge. I was happy to see a plastic finned feed rather than an Ebonite feed. It means that the feed will offer good buffer and there won't be problems of burping and leaking. I used this pen with Click Majestic Crystal which has an ebonite feed. At the end of the day where the Majestic's cap was smeared with ink, the Pure Crystal's cap was as clean as glass. Moreover, I didn't see any cap hole. No drying! That's good! Overall for a pen that costs less than say 5$ it is a really good value for money. It is in same league with Camlin Elegante and Chelpark Sona and better than many other costlier mass-produced fountain pens. If you want a fine piece of Indian Fountain Penmanship with very little strain on your pocket then gooooooooooo for it!!! You can find this review and more such reviews on my blog. Good day!!
  6. A couple of months ago I inherited a pen from my late grandmother. Seeing as I didn't, and still don't know much about fountain pens, I was completely unable to ID it. I accepted that for a while, but when I discovered The Fountain Pen Network I rediscovered my hopes for finding out what this pen is. Unfortunately I don't have too much information on it. The only things I can think of that might help you are: The stamp on the nib that says "Iridium Point Germany", though I've been told that means next to nothing.The fact that it works perfectly with Pelikan 4001 "giant" ink cartridges. I've looked through the Pelikan "Product Finder" to no avail. I don't know if this discounts it being a Pelikan pen entirely, or may just a modern Pelikan pen? Sorry for being so absolutely clueless, and thank you for your help! - Cerek Here are some images of the pen:
  7. I thought it would a good idea if I wrote the review and posted the picture. I remember another member do this although I don't remember his name, I liked the concept. Cheers. I used an online picture optimizer to get a smaller size. Let me know if anyone wants a high quality picture.
