  1. I have not yet posted a review on FPN, and I am a bit skeptical about reviews of recently acquired pens. I received this pen on 11 March 2021 and nevertheless decided to write a quick review for two reasons. First, I want to join in the praise that several other FPN members have heaped on the company for their stellar customer service and - communication. Second, I’d like to share my (initial) experience with their EF-tipped “superflexy” nib, since there appears to be some confusion as to the availability and characteristics of that nib. I will skip the customary “first impressions

    Offering two vintage Wahl Eversharp Gold Seal pens for sale, both with very flexible nibs. I'm working on a grail pen and have also decided to switch to italic nibs exclusively so these beauties need a new home. 1. Wahl Eversharp Gold Seal *Decoband* Oversize -- $575 Nib: This pen features a huge 14kt nib marked "flexible." And it is very flexible. Filling system: Lever-filler (new sac.) Color: The colorway is the very attractive and deep gold/green marbling. It's bright, without any darkening or discoloration. General: The overall condition is very good, having been lightly restored (with a new sac) before I bought it at the Philadelphia Pen Show in early 2020. Very clean overall, and without any brassing on the cap bands and clip. Very minor on the sides of the lever, but not substantial or distracting. 2. Wahl Eversharp Gold Seal Fullsize -- $475 Nib: This pen features a large 14kt nib marked "flexible" that lives up to its name. Filling system: Lever-filler (new sac.) Color: This is the red coral colorway and is gorgeous. Very bright, without any discoloration, staining, or darkening. General: The pen is in excellent condition for its age, without any brassing, etc. Was lightly restored by Watch & Write boutique in Switzerland (from whom I bought it early in 2020.)

  3. Introduction: Ranga recently held a group buy of this new model on FPN (https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/351924-ranga-handmade-pens-introducing-splendour-model-in-striking-stripes-colours/). Deeming the designs and colour options attractive, I went in for a blue-pink model. I requested Ranga for a customized model which has the cap of the rounded variant and the body of the torpedo, which Mr. Kandan from Ranga was happy to accommodate (on this note, it is always a pleasure dealing with Mr. Kandan). The pen arrived in due time (with the transport time being a bit longer than
  4. So today, a little package from India arrived on my doormat; slightly unexpectedly, but only because it was nearly two weeks earlier than anticipated! The packaging was very secure, with a thick outer envelope, double layers of bubble wrap, a plush velvet pen sleeve and finally cellophane over the pen itself; I'm pleased to say it survived the trip from India to the UK entirely unscathed, and as a bonus fit neatly through the letterbox! Mr. Subramanian of ASA Pens was very communicative and helpful, with emails on receipt of the order, processing, and on dispatch. No faults at all with the
  5. I am an avid Vacumatic OS and Maxima collector, but far from being an expert. I usually differentiate an OS or Max by the length of the pen, diameter of the cap, and the larger nib (I.e 9 or 10 feather nib etching as opposed to the 7 or 8 feather). I was cleaning out a Brown OS and discovered that it has a 7-feather etching, but is the same size as the usual OS and Max Nibs. The pen has a made in USA print with a 45 date. Have I been wrong with one of my criterias? Is this just an anomaly with bad Parker QC? I have also come across nibs with 8-feathers on one side of the shaft and 9-feathers o
  6. Hi everyone, I've been waiting a little impatiently for this pen to arrive I've started to get interested in japanese urushi pens recently and wanted to stretch out my collection that is mostly made out of european celluloid pens (ie. omas,montegrappa,pelikan etc.) My first urushi pen was a mikado which I really enjoyed, and was unlike any of the 30ish pens I've owned before. But as it was a fairly well known pen in the community I didn't feel the urge to write a review on it. My first review was on a KOP with blue urushi finish, which is my favourite pen still. My second review is this one
  7. Hello everyone and thanks for having a look. This will be my first review of a pen so all criticism is more than welcome. As this is my first review I wanted it to be of a pen that is special to me and at the same time not one that is beaten to death(ie. m1000). So that I would have a unique addition to the community and maybe the flaws of my review will be less overt . Anyway, without further ado, here is my review on the fabled kop with a blue urushi: Appearance&Design: 10/10 Marvelous! This is the part that excited me most when I got ahold of this pen
  8. Hi!! Two days ago I bougth at Mexico city (where I live) a faceted fountain pen, wich looks as a Parker Vacumatic oversize. I was searching in the web in orden to confirm if it is an authentic Parker, but I didn't get any information or images about faceted Parkers. The pen description is: Barrel engraved: "Parker Vacumatic USA" (the "V" is engraved on the "R") Long with cap: 13.5 centimeters (5 1/4") Barrel diameter: 1.6 centimeters (5/8") Color: Borgoña Faceted barrel and cap Apparently, the original nib was replaced with a "Harley Davidson" nib (!!!). Can you help me to confirm
  9. Introduction:The inception of this pen began with my curiosity of Titanium Nibs and I was able to put together this "customized" pen from my purchases made over a brief visit to the United States. Having read many reviews and opinions about Titanium Nibs online,being a different writing experience from Gold and Steels nibs, I started looking for an An American Vendor for titanium nibs. While doing my research I came to know that they are available in #8 size too. So as everyone knows, "Bigger IS better", I asked around for a #8 Bock Titanium Nib.Thanks to Shawn Newton who pointed me to Karas K

    Homo Sapiens Elegance

    Visconti is releasing a new Homo Sapiens, hopefully next week. It's made in black polished resin, with palladium rings and trims. Visconti said it's a more practical model, for a daily use, because of the material and the filling system, that here is converter/cartridge, even for the Oversize model. It's a bit less expensive, though. http://www.giardino.it/pens/IMMAGINI/copHSelegance.jpg
  12. When I met Tom on the last Köln Penshow in april, he showed me a nice Goldfink in Lapis Lazuli blue. The pen however was too small for me. So we decided he would make an oversized model for me in this beautiful Lapis Lazuli. Now, two months later I took delivery of this marvellous pen. It is a buttonfiller, has a tuned B 8 nib from Bock. The clip has to be changed to a new one with Goldfink engraved. The pen is postable, writes perfect and is usable as a daily writer. Nice job. Enjoy the pictures.
  13. Dear FPNers, Here is my take on a Visconti Homo Sapiens maxi with an 23k Pd EF nib. I hope you find the review fun and enjoyable. Wish you a prosperous and fun-filled new year with loads of new pens and paraphernalia. In case there are any problems with pictures you can also view the same review in my blog: http://iwonder-thecartographer.blogspot.in/2015/01/visconti-homo-sapiens-bronze-maxi-review.html Main Motivation Somewhere in late 2009, Florence-based luxury pen maker Visconti announced a nib made out of a 95% Palladium (23k) alloy, in a press-release. Most of the nibs that were common
  14. http://i.imgur.com/L1KmlxA.jpg The Danitrio Mikado is the only repeat in my collection. And it's for a good reason. The pen is just an amazing writer and it's ebonite construction makes it incredibly well-balanced. I own one Ao (blue) Roiro-Migaki and one Shu (red) Roiro-Migaki Mikados in the flat-top version, clipless. They also available in the round-top version. Both flat- and round-top version are available with and without clips. http://i.imgur.com/JSkqnd0.jpg The signature is of Koichiro Okazaki, also known as Kogaku. He is a master Maki-e artist commissioned by Danitrio to do

    Parker Oversize / Maxima Parts?

    I picked up a golden brown oversize Parker Vacumatic recently at The Hwy. 127 Yard Sale. It has the speedline filler and it has the two tone arrow nib, bottom jewel on the blind cap and a wide band with a small box for a monogram on the cap. The date on the barrel is "0.". However, it is missing the cap screw, arrow clip, and cap jewel. How hard will finding the parts be and what price should I expect to pay when I do find them? Thus far my searches on the net have yielded zero results for the clip and jewel. Any suggestions on sources? Also, is the pen technically an Oversize or a Max

    Parker Oversize Vac. Parts?

    I picked up a golden brown oversize Parker Vacumatic this week at a flea market. It has the two tone arrow nib and bottom jewel on the blind 's and a wide band with a small box for a monogram on the cap. However, it is missing the cap screw, arrow clip, and cap jewel. How hard will finding the parts be and what price should I expect to pay when I do find them? Thus far my searches on the net have yielded zero results for the clip and jewel. Looking forward to seeing it back in writing condition. Thank you, Rob
  18. I have been using FPs for some time, and while I haven't found an all-purpose writer I love, I do adore my Platinum #3776 Century w/ music nib for composing/arranging/etc... all those music-type-thingys that constitutes my freelance job. Now I would really like to find a good fountain pen to use in my everyday world of writing notes, jotting down lists of errands and such, but I have begun to develop a rather severe case of Rheumatoid Arthritis, so gripping is becoming more and more difficult by the day. I have decently large hands anyway, so I'm thinking an Oversive is probably the way t
  19. You probably all know about the Parker Vacumatic 'Overmax' -- a pen that combined the features of the 1st generation Oversize Vac with the 2nd generation Maxima. Its shape and threading is that of the earlier pen, the Oversize, yet it has the wide Vac band of the Maxima. It's found only in burgundy, with 1939 or 1940 date codes. I've had 2 or 3 of them and they're really cool. A while ago David I. identified a pen that was exactly the opposite of the Overmax. It was in every way a Maxima, yet it had the triple cap bands of the Oversize. It was gray. The whole logical progression, with phot
