  1. Can anyone explain to me why they like the designs so I can appreciate it more? I don’t mean to be rude or criticize people for what they like, I am just curious why you like the look of these pens. Just please reply! I really want to know what the appeal is. Thank you for your help! W. Major
  2. Not unlike how things are in New Zealand, postage costs in Australia are almost prohibitive for exchanges and giveaways even when just sending stuff domestically, especially when they involve pens, which Australia Post has explicitly stated are not to be sent by letter post, which is far cheaper, but must be sent in parcels (Parcel Post minimum cost A$7.95) that are not subject to being stomped on by automated mail processing machinery. A better way may be to pass around a box of surplus and not-my-cup-of-tea-but-may-be-someone-else's items of up to 3kg, using a flat-rate prepaid mailing bag
  3. This is a review of “Kaco Master”. It’s the best Chinese Fountain pen I have come across till now.Kaco is a young company which makes some great products. Kaco since its inception in 2011 have launched many pens & accessories . This “Kaco Master” is among their most premium offerings .This has German Made Gold Nib , it doesn’t feel like it’s made by Jowo or Bock. It feels a bit different from those both. I think they are made by special order or made by some other company ! Pros- – Great 14k Gold Nib – Well Tuned Out Of The Box – Soft & Springy Nib –
  4. Hello everybody Today I would like to start a conversation about EDC systems and which pens you carry everyday. I'll start: I have two pen pouches, one with 3 slots and one with 4 slots. Both of them are in brown leather. In the pouch with 3 slots (which has my last name engraved in the leather) I have the pens which have the 3 'basic colours'/most frequent used colours of ink: - Red: For the red ink I use Pelikan Edelstein Ruby, in my Parker Sonnet in red lacquer. Fine nib. Lovely pen but rigid nib, in the future I'd like to upgrade this pen to a burgundy sailor pro gear. - Green: The
  5. I started using fountain pens back in 2016 and I remember there being a huge amount of interest around the hobby and the community back then, to the point that I knew numerous people in my own life who began getting onboard and seeing article after article being amazed by the resurgence in the fountain pen industry. I also remember this being a huge time for smaller companies and it seemed like there was a new pen model coming out every day and hundreds of people buying new pens every hour. I stopped following everything as actively in the years after and I'm wondering what the state of the ho
  6. Hey Everyone, I just received this pen from my mother the other day as a gift. Its been her's for years but she's never used it. I'm new to the world of pens and would like to get some background info on this pen, and any thought you have on it. How much do pens like this normally buy/sell for? And is there anything special about this one?
  7. I have a few old Conklins, and I've looked at many online, and it's very hard to find one with an intact nib: I see many with the tipping broken off. I dropped my little ringtop Student Special on a carpeted floor the other day: it didn't land on its nib, but the nib cracked right across. I love Conklin nibs, but they seem weirdly fragile compared with other nibs of the same vintage. Does anyone know enough metallurgy to give an informed answer to this perplexing question?

    Who Makes The Best Nibs Today

    Theblackpen asks a great question - which leads me to ask a follow-up question: what about the business end of the pen? The bit that keeps a Mont Blanc from simply being a plutocrat's pacifier? Who makes the best nibs? Who makes the mechanism that most perfectly expresses the personality of the writer? Or makes for the best experience of making little marks on paper?

    Noodler's Brexit - Exclusive!

    Another UK exclusive from Noodler's - BREXIT! Available from Niche Pens/Pure Pens here in the UK. A smashing bullet-proof ink which is a deep/royal blue, possible with slight purple undertones.

  12. First off, I wanted to give a big shout out for everybody that was able to attend the Dromgoole's Dallas Pen Show 2 weeks ago! We were extremely happy to put on an event like that, and you all helped make it a successful event. It was so great to get to see everybody! With that said we are doing a similar show in San Antonio November 6th-7th!. The show will be located at the Doubletree by Hilton San Antonio Northwest right off of Loop 1604 and I-10. 6809 N Loop 1604 W, San Antonio, TX 78249 There will be a special room rate of $82/night if signed up before the end of October,
  13. There's a pen up on ebay branded as a "Commander" (not a Commando); supposed to be Danish. It has a very pretty nib and a very Forties design. Has anyone heard of this maker?
  14. Fountain pens are like quills, in that you never see them any more. So what do people say when you whip out that pen to make a memo? I've personally had things from "you think you're classy because you use a weird pen, don't you?" (?!?!?!) to "is that a weapon?". I've only had a few people identify them as fountain pens.
  15. Now heres an interesting thing: I was looking at a Conklin Crescent on eBay - a pen I find fun to use and often with very flexy nibs, and I happened to notice that the later Endura line - with a more conventional filling mechanism and less extravagant nibs - seem more desirable pens, as expressed by the listed prices. So Im intrigued: what is it about the Endura? I have eccentric tastes and my fancy runs to ringtops, but the Crescent is an older, rarer and odder pen, which usually adds value. Anyone care to hazard a guess?
  16. I had to see a cardiologist yesterday - my ticker makes a noise - but one of the doctors assistants, a lady named Christine, was fascinated with the pen I was wearing (my gold Hicks ED ringtop) and when we got into the exam room, she confessed that she was interested in pens. Well, they dont call me an enabler for nothing. Oh! You must try this! I said, unscrewing the pen. She did, and she started to giggle madly as she realized what that nib could do. Then she described how unsatisfied she was with most pens, but she didnt think a fountain pen would work for her because of her heavy hand. Wha
  17. The Pelikan M800 Souverän Fountain Pen- a general collector's viewThe Pelikan M800 series of fountain pens is one of my favourite, if not the favourite, type of fountain pen. In this I am not alone, as many consider the beautiful writing instruments produced by this German manufacturer to be some of the finest ever produced. But why? What makes these pens so special? Sharing my own experience in using fountain pens may explain my passion for Pelikan pens. I write a lot- both professionally and privately. This includes professional reports, fiction and non-fiction writing. I earn my living
  18. Dear forum members, I would like to introduce my new book to you. It shows in word and picture over 550 pens, all in connection to the animal kingdom. You will find pens from 80 companies.

We do accept paypal (regina.martini@t-online.de). best regards Regina Martini
  19. Hi all. I like to share some recent experiences. Vintage pens somehow captivate my imagination. But the vintage pens sold in ebay are generally the very high end pens, much beyond the budget I kept- rather those premium special editions range. I was looking for a softer alternative where I too can buy a few. This vacation , I have spent a lot of time and some nice pens came by at moderate costs. Trying to source locally at my hometown city of Kolkata was not so encouraging- of the three known vendors , two confirmed they do not get much supply anymore and there is a third with whom I am not
  20. Hi, Can anyone help determine which Pelikan Souveran this is? I think it's a M800, but I cant be sure. Can anyone help determine which one by the pictures with the ruler?

    Gladiator Pen Company - Any Info?

    I'm looking at a ringtop with an octagonal cap, a silver engraved band, an 18k Tacos nib and it says Gladiator on it somewhere. It's cute, but I wondered if anyone knew anything about the maker? It seems to have been made for the French market, but I don't know if it was actually made in France. Any info?

    Pure Pens Ink - A Taster

    Pure Pens based in Newport, south Wales, have launched a series of their own branded and 'Bottled in Wales' inks and this short comment features just two of the series, which arrived in the post this morning. There are far more details on their website and no doubt, there will be many more reviews and comparisons in the coming months but I just wanted to show a couple of images. I just wanted two colours at the moment - Celtic Sea and Saltire. I also purchased one of the TWSBI Eco T pens from them - blue to use with the Celtic Sea one but more about that on another occasion.
