    Penman (Usa). Very Happy.

    This is an eyedropper filled Penman(USA) brand fountain pen that I was able to clean up and get working. The nib says "spenco" 14k. By just pulling the nib and feed off, I was able to flush out the barrel and put in fresh ink. I cleaned up the nib and feed and put them back on. The black plastic portion that is hidden in the barrel is the reservoir. I did not touch that. From older posts I remember if you mess with it you can crack the barrel. $6 eBay auction. I'm assuming through research this was manufactured in the 1940's. http://www.richardspens.com/index_m.html?page=ref/glossary
  2. Hello, F.P.N. people from away down south in Dixie. I go by "The Leverist," I tinker with antique anything until it works, and I'm a random person on the internet. That's all you really need to know about that, so let's get down to the important business and talk pens. Okay, so I did the Sumgai thing and ended up with a pile of wrecked pens. One Parker 21 was the only one still workable, and it was cracked. Model cement to the rescue! It's fine now. Others were a mostly third-tier accumulation of pens that survived the Great Depression, and look like they rode in the glovebox of a Model T o

    Parker Penman Sapphire (Vintage)

    While I was working on some comparisons of PPS to some of the modern inks I have, I decided to work up a review. The short answer is PPS was a great ink with excellent handling characteristics. Perhaps the color was not so popular back in the day, but today there are many inks with saturated color. And this "middle blue" that ever so slightly leans green seems a very unusual color for modern inks which in my mind seem to lean red to blue-violet, or heavily towards green. For those that might not have heard of PPS, it's been long discontinued, with prices now heading towards the stratosphere
  4. Hello, As per request of some fellow members, I decided to give away a bottle of Parker Penman Sapphire in form of 2-3 ml sample vials, the problem is that sending to so many people is not possible for me, so contacted amberleadavis and she very kindly accepted to help with the postage, so I will send the bottle to her and she will work on the sample vials and posting them. Details: - 15 people will be selected, Anyone interested please leave a comment and we will pick the 15 people at our discretion. - This PIF is for people who have not used PPS before. - Preferences will be given to t

    Parker Penman

    Hello, Sometimes back, a fellow FPNer asked me if I will fill any of my expensive pens with PPS because of all the reports he had read about clogging problems and may be damage that PPS could cause, my answer was that for me it's worth. Wanted to know what you all think about it. Best regards.

    How Much?

    Hello, Does anyone recall the price of a bottle of Parker Penman when it was in production (before it got discontinued)? Best regards.
  7. I recently picked up a few bottles of Parker Penman ink for what seemed like a bargain price compared to some I'd seen. The deal also included four vintage Pelikan bottles (the ones with the Mont Blanc style tip-fill well), which made it extra sweet. I tried each to see what all the fuss was about and it came down to just loving the Sapphire and Emerald. The Ruby was an odd browinsh color with a lot of sediment, possibly suffering from too much age. The Ebony and Mocha were OK, but not interesting enough and are currently for sale on flea bay Australia if anyone's interested. Wary of their

Why did it take this long? Good question....and it doesn't even matter I think. Here it is http://kepfeltoltes.hu/140807/IMG_001_www.kepfeltoltes.hu_.jpg On the scans you can spot the difference somewhat easily, but to the naked eye they are very similar. The Emerald is a more vivid green, and the Moss Green is just a bit more
