  1. Many words are translated by Google, but it is still easy to understand. I make a summary about the cost of various special materials that may be used in the pen making. Only special materials, such as TC4 titanium alloy/Brass/Normal Steel/Acrylic/Ebonite/ABS/Normal Plastic Carbon fiber and other conventional materials will not be discussed. All Materials Price is calculated with a ROD. Its size: φ15mm(Diameter)*150mm(Length) So the volume is 26507.1mm3≈26.5cm3 1---Non-precious metals (only the material cost itself is considered, and the proce
  2. This Pelikan Pen M800 is made of Optical Borosilicate Glass in body and Shappire in cap. However, after I made this pen within 48 hours it just broken(I am a very careful people who never drop a pen on the ground for 10 years) Maybe the only reason to explain it is that thread stroke was too long. At least I know that Shappire & Glass are too fragile to make a endurable fountain pen. So I remove those materials in my transparent pen making :{ Luckily, a friend made a optium museum acrylic pen body with sterling silver clip for me as “backup”. Some good trans

    For Fountain Pen Technologists

    For five years, around 1980, I worked for a pen manufacturer, as designer and ingeneer. During this time I discovered that not everything that works, can be or needs to be explained. For an ingeneer, to accept magic and let it exist in his work is a huge step. Thirty odd years later, fountain pens still fascinate me, their function in particular. Therefore, I started publishing my memoires on my web site titled Fountain Pen Magic. You can / will find there all sorts of interesting things relating to technology, function and manufacture, as much as I can remember. The link to my site is

    Omas 50Yr Anniversary Fao- Need Info

    I recently acquired an Omas FOA Limited Edition pen. It seems to be in good shape, could us a tune of for sure, but there are a couple of things Id like to know before I keep the pen -On the barrel it says "OMAS EXTRA Italy". The other numbered versions I think only had "OMAS EXTRA" -I bought it without its standard box, even thought the seller sold me "box and papers" Fishy Overall it writes pretty well, piston is somewhat smooth. The nib looks legit but those other details seemed fishy.
  5. One of the great qualities of fountain pens is that they combine utility with beauty, in a tool we use daily. The material is a key factor in this formula, and a recent discussion on Fountain Pen Network gave people the chance to name the most beautiful materials they had ever seen. Italian celluloids topped the charts: Tibaldi Impero, Omas Arco, and Omas Burkina, for example. This month I began writing with a Ranga Model 8b pen made from a blue, red, and pale yellow ebonite recently created for the company, based in Thiruvallur in southern India. Its a gorgeous ebonite, layered in rich comb

    Material Question

    Hello everyone, I saw this material a few months back on Fountain of Ink's Instagram. The pen itself was made by Herbus Casameerus. I wanted to know if anyone knew anything about the material it was made from? I have seen some close matches but nothing exact. Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for looking.
  7. Hi everyone, I am currently considering buying the Karas Kustoms Ink fountain pen. I am having trouble deciding on a nib material. I want a very rugged pen that I will be able to carry around without fear of breaking and so I also want a nib that will stand the test of time, i.e. resist to corrosion, not bend beyond repair too easily (although I am not much of a flex writer, I don't enjoy a stiff nib either) and generally be easy to maintain. The gold nib is out for me though just because I feel like it really doesn't fit wit the rest of the pen's design although if they ever came out with g

    Fountain Pen Magic

    Around 1980, I worked for a pen manufacturer, as designer and ingeneer, in Germany. During this time I got a good insight into the function of fountain pens and other pens and their manufacture. Thirty odd years later, fountain pens still fascinate me. I started a web site titled Fountain Pen Magic. You can / will find there all sorts of interesting things relating to technology, function and manufacture, as much as I can remember. The link to my site is https://fountainpend....wordpress.com/ I am happy to discuss any question you may have on those topics. Amadeus W. Penmacher Inge
  9. I am really interested in talking about materials of montblanc regular edition. I email official for many time, but some results really make me confused. http://www.montblanc.com/content/dam/mtb/products/writing-instruments/111/037/111037/191338-ecom-retina-01.png.adapt.500.500.png Montblanc STARWALKER EXTREME STEEL FOUNTAIN PEN its description lacks the material of pen's grip and clip , so I emailed the official website and got this reply:"The grip is made of steel, the clip is platinum plated. " However, it still lacks the vital part: plated what? brass or steel? After saw the secon
  10. Okay, so it's partly my own fault, but... ...two years ago at the Dallas Pen Show, I purchased this beautiful little Majestic vest pen? I call it a vest pen as it's small. I did not take reading glasses along with me at that time and my eye sight wasn't perfect. So, I took the pen on good fait that all was well. (Perhaps the seller's eye sight was as bad as mine!) Long story short, I went to clean/use the pen for the first time tonight (don't start with me as this is the third tiny pen I had acquired) and I decided to look and see if the nib had any flex. I started to gently press the nib
