    Osmia 294 Loose Clip Repair

    Hi folks, One of the things that can be pretty annoying on any pen is a loose part, usually a clip. Not only does it bother me when I'm writing, I worry that it'll get caught on something and pull off, or otherwise get damaged. One of my favourite pens is a lovely wood-grain Osmia 294 from the 1950s. It writes beautifully, and looks great in that streamliney 1950s way! The clip was loose however, and I thought I'd share the repair procedure in case it's useful for somebody with a similar design of pen. Ron Z has a blog on a similar (but not identical) procedure on his Blue Fingers Blog, so c

    Osmia 1222 Ef

    Hi folks, I have picked up a very pretty green celluloid Osmia 1222 and it's on the way in the mail! I've been trying to find out more about the specific model, and it's proving challenging, as Osmias are not mean to have 4-digit codes. It is a pre-war (therefore pre-F-C) button-filler. Looks like 2-diamond nib (obviously not a huge pen at 5'/125mm). It has the long cap top and a simple "Osmia" clip. I'd be delighted if somebody could give me a sense of where this fits in the model line. Thank you! Ralf
  3. Does anyone know what the "G" stands for in the Osmia Supra 44 G for instance? Thank you!

    Bohler 56Gt Set

    Info wanted , anyone have one of these ? Has OM Degussa nib . Looks like it might be a good diameter and is in a length range that I seem to prefer. Not as pretty as the ones that Bo Bo has but I like it anyway . Thanks <*)))>< Eddie
  5. I currently have a 1930s Osmia 222 button filler on my work desk which needs a new sac. The barrel is celluloid and the section seems to be hard rubber. It's a rare pen and I need to be extra careful. What I don't know is whether the section is screwed in or only friction fit. Does anyone here have experience with button fillers from Osmia? Any info is highly appreciated.

    Ka-Bu-Co- 16B / Osmia 226

    In the mail and thought I'd share some pictures . Ka-Bu- Co according to the seller is the German Office Supply Company Kaut - Bullinger & Co and this pen is made by Osmia . It is the same as an Osmia 226 so is their large pen . The clip is a very nice but uncorrect replacement so I will be on the lookout for a correct one . #6 Broad flexible nib . Here are a few of the sellers pictures . Eddie PS: Forum wont let me post the other two pictures for some reason . I tried resizing by 50 % but it still won't accept them .

    Osmia Blind Cap Stuck

    Hi All, The crown of my collection, a 1930s Osmia Supra 76 EF, is having some trouble and I could use your help. It worked perfectly when I bought it, but it had the originally cork on it so I filled it with distilled water and put it away for a couple months just in case the cork needed some reviving. I just took it out to use it and to my horror the blind cap won't unscrew. When I try to do so it turns the now incredibly stiff piston a little until both are totally stuck. If I try to unscrew the blind cap even more the piston makes a clicking sound but the cap just keeps turning withou
  9. I just got this beautiful Osmia 973 M. But the thing is, I really can't find anything about this model from google. And this made me really nervous about this pen, could this be fake? This pen is tiny and its nib is smallest that I have ever seen. The nib is smooth but weird, it have Osmia markings. Nib makes really fine line, when doing cross stroke, wider when down stroke. My other Osmia, which have M nib too, behaves like normal M nib. This pen started working after cleaning and putting some silicon grease to piston seal. I didn't completely disassembly the pen, I only took nib and feed out
  10. A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a NOS Faber Castell 554D Progress fountain pen, when searching for inks. It was placed inside a cellophane wrap, printed with green A.W Faber-Castell and was finally packaged inside a small cardboard box. A small pen which kind of resembled a rather compressed modern MB146, with its striped ink-windows. Since, I have an excellent experience with most of the Faber-Castell fountain pens including the reviewed ones here – Ambition, Intuition and Elemento, I went ahead and purchased the pen. Later, Faber-Castell Co. confirmed that the 554D featured in their brochur
  11. Osmia is one of my favourite makes, so I had to buy this one: a pre-war 226 even though the listing informed me that it had a Parker nib; there was a Parker connexion with Osmia so I thought it was not too bad. The pen did look very sad when it arrived and the Parker nib was an English 35 so probably from a Duofold Senior of the 1950s. I cleaned up and rebuilt the pen, but though very good of its type, the Parker nib did nothing for me. The original nib in the pen must have been huge; I thought I might remove the Supra broad nib from an 884 but despite being about No 4 size, this was too s
  12. Hello! I came by a fountain pen today and haven't been able to identify it. I would be very interested to know about any information concerning this pen. I was able to find a short history of the company itself but not much about the pens they produced. I'm definitely not an expert on fountain pens (I've been researching them for a few weeks now), but I'd be very interested to know more! I'm wondering how old this pen might be, does it have any historical value, is it worth hanging onto? The pen seems to work - I've been cleaning it for the better part of the day (carefully, taking pre
  13. Hi, now that I am finally able to enjoy my vacation I have time to browse the local antique stores for pens. Today I ventured out to this smaller boutique (fantastic place along Mannerheimintie, lots of fancy stuff and the owners are great people). Anyway, they had a few pens, one Montblanc 344 (or somesuch in need of a lot of attention, broken cap jewel, missing clip etc.) and the one that caught my attention (Osmia 984 M). Ok, it had brassing in the fittings, it was in dire need of polish (a bit worn, usual wear for such an old pen) and it was engraved with the previous owners name...
