  1. Dear friends, I've recently got attracted by Montblanc limited edition pens, like the PoA and Writers Edition. I can easily find their list according to their release year, and current trading price on Ebay. But I'm interested in making some chart including their prices when they were originally released. Especially, I want to compare their prices when released with the price of plain Montblanc 149 at that time. I can find some on Ebay if the outer box includes a price tag. For example, I can find Hemingway was $600 on this listing on Ebay (https://www.ebay.com/itm/Montblanc-Writers-Edition-Hemingway-Fountain-Pen-Brand-New-In-Box-SEALED/233642242043?hash=item366629affb:g:Va0AAOSw3nNew~V7), but it looks like Montblanc had quitted to write the price on the outer box quite a while ago. Could you let me know if there's any resource or assorted table that I can find their release price? Thank you in advance.

  5. From the album: Chinese pens

    I came across this on Instagram just now while looking for reviews of Fine Writing International's Fenestro pen. This looks pretty nice, although unlike the resin-bodied Fenestro models which are fitted with steel JoWo #6 nibs, this version has a gold JoWo #5 nib. I'm not sure if this can be used as an eyedropper-filled pen with the barrel serving as the ink reservoir. I have an FWI Planet series ‘Mercury’ pen, and am pretty impressed with the build quality and writing performance. Its biggest ‘flaw’, to me, is taking more than three whole turns to uncap, so I wanted to find out whether the Fenestro offers any improvement in that regard. Irrespective of that, I guess I'm not inclined to spend US$260 (plus shipping) on a pen made in either China or Taiwan.

    This pen is rather tricky to photo and show off its true colours, so I placed it on top of a reference card to help you better calibrate your perception of the colours in its aurolide body.

  8. Leonardo Officina Italiana from time to time makes special limited editions of their pens. We all know this. But some of those editions are not just a known model in different material. They more unique and special, and one of them is Leonardo Tainan Pen Show 2019. Only 60 pieces, and in the ebonite version even rarer. Unique pen - ebonite, ebonite feed, gold nib, real piston filler - not "captured converter". A thick hand-made sterling silver ring on cap... A special pen, isn't it? And two of them (no 28 and 30 out of 60) are going to be even more rare (if i succeed). I am lacquering them with urushi. One is already in the process, the other one is waiting (inked )) Below - beauty shot, explosion pic and video of part of the lacquering process.
  9. 2012 Montblanc Writers Edition Jhonatan Swift M Nib The Art Of Engrave Montblanc Special and Limited Editions Nibs I am a Montblanc collector, and as someone have already known, I have a great interest in special and limited editions of the company. It is true that, as a good purist, I started with a 149, which has been followed by several others 149´s and Meisterstuck pieces, but my collection has focused on the writers edition, expanding to great characters and donation pen. In short, special editions and limited editions. It is not my intention to comment about the virtues of the special and the limited editions of Montblanc, because all of you surely know them, someone have their opinion, many like them, some do not, anyway. What I wanted to share on this occasion is to invite you to an incredible trip, to discover a world in miniature, which passes, largely, unnoticed to the naked eye, and even more if we have some years; to know in detail the work of decorate the nibs of special and limited editions, and let us surprise with “ the art of engrave " Have you ever seen Gulliver's belt, or the difference in size between him and the citizen of liliput on horseback? I will be sharing the nibs that are in my collection, and I will appreciate that you get excited and upload the photos of yours special and limited nibs. Let's start. Enjoy it. FEAMAT
  10. Not a lot of drawings this time because this ink took sooo long to dry and bled like a stuck pig. As always, YMMV! Swabs on Clairefontaine: Various Paper Tests: card stock:

  12. Recent haul from the flea bay! Italian fountain pen maker MARLEN's Silver 7 Wonders "Christ the Redeemer" fountain pen , happens to be a Limited Edition too. The seller mentioned that each design is limited to 77 pieces, although I am not sure about this information. These beautifully crafted and exquisite looking fountain pens had my attention for quite some time, but for the price. These pens are not inexpensive, or at least the website www.giardino.it/pens/marlen/index.php has these listed at 1490 Euros or 1670 US Dollars (which is in fact an "offer price" on the actual MRP of 1740 Euro or 1950 US Dollars). I very well assume that shipping would be extra, and taxes, if any. Well, the haul was at...well, let me keep that undisclosed While this piece of art will take a while to reach me after it has traveled half the world, here are the pictures from the seller. As I do not know much about Marlens and have never used them before, I will be honest - it was an impulse buy! Feel free to comment and let me know how you feel about this new acquisition of mine...

    Wait.. That's A Twsbi? Twsbi Aurora

    So, lazy Sunday here and was just swiping through my IG feeds and caught a glimpse of a green acrylic pen that got me interested. Was thinking probably an Italian manufacturer that I follo or Moonman related pen but was nicely surprised that the it came from the official TWSBI Instagram. They are calling it the Aurora and will be a Limited Edition pen released on 18th of March (tomorrow!) so for those interested can prepare their wallet. Flat top and bottom, green swirly acrylic and a piston filler. The price is defined though at $100 which will make this the most priciest TWSBI pen ever released CMIIW. Here is the picture of the pen along with the TWSBI home link: https://www.twsbi.com/ (photo courtesy of TWSBI)

  15. Write smoothly under the hand of justice with the newest creation by Grayson Tighe, the legendary pen creator! The Lady Justice encompasses the perfect balance of heat treatment and grade five Titanium, all hand made to produce the different effects of the coloration. Featuring a detailed carving of Lady Justice—the classical representation of the moral compass in history—it is truly a perfect gift for a Paralegal, Law School Student/Graduate, Attorney, and Judge. The heat treatment produces a transparent oxide on the surface. The oxide refracts the light spectrum, portraying similarly to a rainbow in the sky. This effect is created by allowing the barrel, cap and nib to be exposed to an open flame by hand, where the different degrees of heat create the varying colors. The lowest temperature reached is the golden color, reaching a purple shade transcending to medium dark medium and light blues which reach the highest temperatures. Since these masterpieces are created by hand, no two will be alike. Making each one a “one of a kind”. Draft and sign with precision under the knowledgeable hand of the Greek God Asclepius with Grayson Tighe's new Asclepius pen! Inspired by the Greek God of Medicine, Grayson Tighe has combined a harmony between varying levels of heat and grade five titanium depicting the image of the Greek God of Medicine, Asclepius to guide your writing to be as sharp as a scalpel—Got any surgeon friends? They would surely love this as a gift. Each of this pens is able to be customized with the engraving of a name, initials, or even a special date to make for a thoughtful present. The edition size on both of these pens: 88 Rollerball Pens, and 88 Fountain Pens. The Rollerball can accept Schmidt Ceramic, fine liner or felt tip. The other option is to design a refill accepting the Parker Style ballpoint refill, which allows the use of refills from Parker, Schmidt, Itoya, and Monteverde—among others. For all inquiries, please email us at orders@airlineintl.com or call us at (915) - 778 - 1234.

  17. This is my review for the WINNOLAM: Limited Edition IPS Krishna Inks. This review is also available on my blog in more detail here. This ink is a beautiful deep royal blue with a red sheen wherever the ink pools, which kind of reminds me of Organics Studio Nitrogen, but doesn’t show nearly as much sheen. This ink costs Rs. 225 for 15 ml on thepenworld.com. Definitely pricey, but most Krishna inks cost that much. Supplies Used 1) Parker Frontier (Fine) 2) Classmate Exercise Notebook The ink writes very wet, which I love. The classmate notebook is holding up to it really well with minimal bleedthrough. There is definite ghosting, but absolutely zero feathering which I love. This ink kind of reminds me of Organics Studio Nitrogen, with it's blue and red colours, but I've never used the ink so other experienced users can comment more on it. Images attached below:
  18. It's been awhile since I've written a review, my last one being 3 years ago. Of late, I've been making it a habit to rotate my pens, to the tune of every 2-4 weeks. One of the Montblanc Writer's Edition receiving less love than their peers is certainly the Kafka. Hence my choice today Price: I bought this at the London WES in 2013 from a dealer for 450 GBP/560 Euros, being told it was 'mint' but anyone who's bought a pen or two could tell that wasn't true, from the number of micro scratches found on the pens which you would get with use. But the condition was good, the nib acceptable to write with on paper , so I took a leap and was rewarded. Design: The Kafka is a long pen - in length, the main reason I've not used it as frequently as the rest of my pens, simply because it doesn't fit into my shirt pocket, which is a pity, since it actually has a clip that would make Goldilocks proud. Most fountain pens don't anyway, but this one really sticks out as shown. So it's mostly a pen I use for writing out study notes, or in my journal. It's not a pen I would post. The clips stems off the top of the cap, and is neither too tight to the point of frustration or too loose for comfort. Haven't used the pen in awhile, hence the dull silver, but I think it lends character ! After all it is a 2004 pen, a great way of tracking how old your pens are, when it's engraved on the nib directly ! From top to bottom; Kafka, Pelikan M1000, Pelikan M600, Parker 75 The nib is an 18k gold nib, with the familiar 4810m and Montblanc snowflake symbol engraved on the upper half, and a cockroach to represent one of Kafka's most famous publicly known works, Metamorphosis, where the main character well...not to spoil the story...turns into a cockroach. The nib is not particularly stiff, nor does it have any amount of flex to it, as most modern nibs do. As this is a medium, it doesn't have the 'stub' feel you may get with the broader Montblanc nibs. It was a dream to write with, and the feed keeps up very well, I never had to adjust the cartridge converter mid way ,as you would get with some pens. The sometimes misunderstood, maligned and yet reliable cartridge converter. It seems tightly sealed, so I've not tried seeing what happened if I tugged harder. It's not removable from the pen unit. The choice of colour for the body and cap is a dark ruby red, which at most angles, seem to be a deep and dark black. The body and cap of the pen isn't very reflective for all purposes, so even shining a light directly on to the pen doesn't bring out the reds in a more pleasing manner, as seen in the photo with flash below. Glimmers of red, mostly at the tips. It somehow shuns the light and displays its colours best in a dimly lit room, much like the terror of a flying cockroach landing on your face when the power goes out. Not a finger print magnet, which is a huge plus as well. Why red ? I haven't read enough Kafka, but I can only guess that the term Kafkaesque is frequently applied to the bureaucratic red tape we all find ourselves entangled in on a daily basis . Back to the pen, it's mostly seen at both ends of the pen, where the innards of the pen end at. The bottom end of the pen is tapered off with a piece of sterling silver, which you will see is rectangular in shape, but that transits into a the circular shape which we are all familiar with for most pens. Difficult to capture on camera. but the reflection of light of its surface tells you it changes along the way. Running your fingers along them and you'll find a seamless transition of the shapes. Why wasn't this pen more popular ? My guesses: 1) regarded as being cheaper due to the cartridge converter filling mechanism. I've noticed many FP users here regard having non cc's as being more 'premium', so this was probably seen as Montblanc going cheap on a writer's edition. In my opinion cc's are great, much easier to maintain and less of a hassle to repair. (walking into a minefield here..) 2) less trimmings: The entire body of the pen is mostly 'precious resin, aka plastic' besides the silver trimmings, compared to other pens which had more ornately decorated caps, bodies, nib sections etc. 3) simple design: well some of the writer editions can simply be...quite garish. I've a George Bernard Shaw as well, and it can be, sometimes, a bit ostentatious and invites unwanted conversations and attempts to try it... Overall, it's a design I find very pleasing, simple but elegantly done. I was happy to pay the price for a 2nd hand pen. As I slowly move away from broad nibs, but not yet to fine ones, I think this pen will feature more frequently in my daily pens. Hopefully I've convinced you that this is a wonderful pen ! I didn't score the pen out of a 10, because pens are like watches, love them or hate them, someones 10 maybe someone elses 3.75. I'm always taking suggestions for red fountain pens !
  19. Concise, minimalistic presentation, useful for comparison. Text is laconic somehow poetic never ever negative. Tactful. I've been following his ink presentations for a year.

  20. This is my own pen. I did not receive any compensation for this review. This pen is available to hire through pensharing.com. Looks, description, build quality, dimensions This is my limited edition (number 14 of 25) Delta Fantasia Vintage. It's made completely from turquoise blue celluloid, has a fine number 6 rhodium plated steel nib (there is an option to have a gold nib, at additional cost), and rhodium plated clip and cap band. The cap band is fairly slim and carries a "Greek key" pattern. The clip has a little scroll work and a rollerball and is firm but not overly stiff. There are chrome rings just behind the threads and below the blind cap at the end of the barrel. The finial is in a cone shape whilst the end of the blind cap is rounded off. The nib carries the simple Delta logo, name and nib size, with no other markings or engraving. The celluloid is absolutely sensational, the turquoise colour is gorgeous. As you rotate the pen in your hand there appears to be four distinct sections to the celluloid - on two of those, the celluloid has a deep 3-D stripey effect; on the other two it's more muted but still lovely. You can spend hours just rotating the pen in hand, waiting for it to catch the light in a certain way. The pen comes in a variety of celluloids, all limited to 25 pieces: Brown (the only pen which comes with gold trimGreen (with black marbling - verde variegato)BordeauxTurquoise (now sold out)Red (with blue marbling)Green (verde scuro) L-R, the colours described above, from the cover of the accompanying booklet. The build quality is fabulous, it feels beautifully made. The only minor disappointment is the clip: from the front it's a nice shape, with the roller ball and scroll work, but side on it looks rather thin and flimsy, compared to say a Montegrappa clip. Dimensions are: Capped 135mm, 28g (Lamy Safari 139mm, 18g)Uncappped 123mm, 18g (Lamy Safari 128mm, 10g)Posted 148mm (Lamy Safari 164mm)Other: barrel width 14mm (at its widest point just behind the threads), section width 11mm (at its narrowest concave point), section length 21mm (including threads), nib length 23mmStory behind the pen I first saw this on Instagram, on Edwin PG's feed (@fountain.gem). He had just purchased 3 different ones: the turquoise, the brown and the marbled red. Photo credit: @fountain.gem on Instagram I instantly fell in love and knew that I had to have one.. I didn't realise this before purchasing but the pens are made by Salvatore Matrone in collaboration with Stefano Senatore (owner of Stilograph Corsani, retailer of fine writing instruments since 1924, in Rome). Salvatore is, of course, the founder of the sensational new pen company Leonardo, and is the son of Ciro Matrone, one of the founders of Delta. So the pedigree of the pen is impeccable! I emailed Stefano to enquire about the pen and he responded to all of my questions quickly and with great enthusiasm and we established a great rapport. Once I placed the order it arrived extremely quickly. Awesome customer service all round! Feel in the hand Celluloid is a beautiful, silky smooth material which is warm to the touch so naturally the pen feels great in the hand. And because the section is also celluloid it means that you benefit from that same feeling whilst you are actually writing. The circumference of the section is slightly larger than I prefer (and the same with the nib size at number 6, I find number 5 is my sweet spot) however I knew this before purchasing the pen is not in any way a hindrance to getting a comfortable grip. It's quite a light pen unposted so no fatigue from long writing sessions. Filling / refilling I believe the term for the filling system on this pen is "captive converter". It's essentially a cartridge converter except that the twister is longer than on a traditional cartridge converter, is metal rather than plastic, and can be accessed by unscrewing the blind cap at the bottom of the barrel. The barrel also unscrews so you can fill it as you would a normal CC if you prefer. So you have the look and feel of a piston filler and the convenience of a cartridge converter. Clever! The one minor downside is that because the "piston knob" is not an integral part of the barrel, it does have a slight rattle if you tap the pen in that area. Nib feel on the paper / ink flow The steel nib is absolutely superb and wrote beautifully straight out of the box. It's got enough feedback that you can feel you're actually writing but does feel lovely and smooth. Flow is on the wet side, in fact perfectly so. Line width / variation The steel nib is firm and doesn't offer anything in the way of line variation. It's a genuine fine line. Here's the comparison to the Lamy Safari F. They're pretty much identical: Top: Lamy Safari F; Bottom: Delta Fantasia Vintage How does it make your handwriting look I love the slightly wetter flow. Maybe this contributes to me slowing down my writing pace a touch, which means a bit more care. Whilst I don't have particularly "nice" writing, it does contribute to it looking its best. Value for money At the €300 mark, the choice is almost limitless: Pelikan, Montegrappa, Visconti, Sailor, Aurora, Pilot - all the great names have lots to offer in this price bracket. Many will be gold nibbed piston fillers but I haven't seen any other celluloid pens out there (you might be lucky and pick up a used celluloid Montegrappa from eBay at that price). The really hot celluloids to have right now are: Leonardo Momento Zero (piston filler, gold nib)Montegrappa Colori Del Mare (based on the Extra 1930, piston filler, gold nib)But both these pens command a much higher price: the Leonardo at around €700, the Montegrappa at around $800. So if you just want the material but not the piston filler or gold nib then this really is the only choice. Conclusion / recommendation The celluloid on this pen is the undoubted star of the show. It is stunningly beautiful. It is hand made by one of the leading lights in the fountain pen community, Salvatore Matrone. It was also amazing value for money at €300 and the buying experience from Stefano was smooth and handled with care and charm. For that price though, you have to sacrifice the gold nib, sterling silver trim and genuine piston filler, but they are sacrifices well worth making. Overall, I love this pen - I'm delighted to have been able to have obtained one of such a limited run of pens and I would buy them all if I could!
