  1. Fountain pen hospital In NYC is selling new old stock Krones for $89. Its not advertised on their website, but you may be able to buy over the phone, if you cant manage to go to the store. I picked up two. One is, I believe, a Metaphor Chesterfield. The other, I dont know. It has a flat top, black resin with brown, blue, and silver-grey stripes. And, even though it doesnt look it, the barrel is so much longer than the Chesterfields that it takes a bladder thats almost twice the size of the Chesterfields. They both have the same size 18K nib. Can you help me identify the mystery Krone?
  2. This is the Krone Couture Precious Metals Collection Kronology limited edition. Pen body is lacquered sterling silver with multicolored replicating crowns around the cap and body. Nib size is medium and is made from 18k gold. Limited edition number is 048/888. Converter filler. Not many Krone pens are reviewed here, or perhaps anywhere. Many of the pens from Krone are more art than pen celebrating some person, place, or thing. Most of those pens are very expensive for a pen and even expensive for art, although the quality level is very high. According to Krone this pen has been designed to bring extravagance to my fingertips. Well, how about that? About the size of a Montblanc 146 the Kronology is weighty thanks to the sterling silver body. Compared to many pens this is heavy but you can put it in a shirt pocket and balance for writing is very good. Overall, very solid construction and it really feels like a special, luxury product. One cool thing is that the cap locks securely into place. The cap screws on in 1.5 turns and right at the end the section seats securely into a pocket in the plastic cap liner. This prevents the unintentional opening of the pen. Very nice feature. Normally, I'm not a fan of metal sections. That is a common refrain here, but this section is decorated with guilloche patterns that make for a positive grip and the flair at the end of the section provides a secure resting place for my finger. The nib is simply decorated with the Krone crown logo and Krone text. The medium nib writes smoothly from about any angle and flow is medium high. As expected there is no flex to the nib. It's a good nib and the pen is comfortable to write with for long sessions. Essentially, this a pen with classic shape made to exacting specifications from precious materials (silver and gold). I think it does define a luxury product. The decorative logos provide a bit of color and whimsy. I'm sure the repeating crown logos are intended to evoke images of Louis Vuitton, which may not please all, but it does actually look pretty cool. This pen is a bit extravagant but manages just enough restraint not to be gaudy conspicuous consumption. Hard to describe really--this pen really sparkles in the right light but it also takes on the character of its surroundings. If bright it is bright, if dark it is more subdued. It's not cheap but there are many more expensive pens out there. Quality is high and writing performance is quite good. Highly recommended.
  3. I bought a Krone Vintage Select Fireball at Fahrney's at a deep discount about 20 years ago. I thought it was beautiful, but it seemed like more of a display case pen than a daily writer. As a result I never even inked the poor devil...until this morning. I loaded it with a nice J. Herbin midnight purple and gave it a whirl and man, was I pleasantly surprised. It was buttery smooth, started right up, and didn't skip a beat...until its ink supply was exhausted after just one page. One page in an A5 notebook! Are Krone bladders just that small, or has mine suffered in storage? I've read that Krones have notoriously thin-walled sacs that may be prone to premature failure. I read a previous review on FPN of the Krone Boulder, and it made no mention of ink capacity. Anyone reading who's experienced with the brand? (This one's a button filler, so I'd have to take it apart to view its innards; I've never done that before, and I definitely wouldn't want to make this one my guinea pig!) Thanks for reading!
  4. Does any one know what model Krone pen this is? Thanks!

  7. Picked up these two Krones at an auction some time ago. I'm not a Krone guy at all, so I'm in the dark as to their history. Tried to search online, but since they bear no real markings that I can find (like I said I'm a noob to Krone), I haven't found anything close to definitive. All help is appreciated in regards to any ID suggestions!!
