  1. This Sailor pocket fountain pen was manufactured in February 1965 (date code H. making it one of the first Sailor pocket pens to be produced. Although, once very common in Japan, they rarely come up for sale now. This is most likely due to the age and owners like to hang on to them. They are unusual which attracted me and they’re surprisingly good for writing. Pocket pens are still popular and make a revival every 15 years. Pocket pens are a rather unusual design (long cap, short barrel) and started by Platinum in the ‘60’s and due to the high demand both Pilot and Sailor soon entered the
  2. Hello again to all my FPN friends, When the original Moonman 80 came out, I resisted buying one because I already have more Parker 45s than I can remember. However, when the 80mini came out I knew it was worth a try, if only to be a recepticle for my favorite Parker 45 gold nibs. Although the quality isn't nearly as good as that of a real Parker 45, these pens still hold their own and nib swappability opens up endless possibilities. How cool is it that I can put a soft 14k UK Parker 45 OBB stub in a tiny pen that will fit in my pocketbook or even directly in my pocket?? Here are some of my

    Skyline Pocket Clip?

    Hi Forum Folke, Can anyone give me some instruction on how the cap on a Skyline comes apart? I have one with a semi-mangled clip (the "ball" at the end that lifts the clip over the pocket edge has somehow been flattened pretty badly.) I can't figure out how the thing comes apart so I can get the clip off of the cap and straighten out the bent metal; I need direct access from 'beneath' the clip... can't do it on the pen. Thanks for any direction! Pics would be good, but I can probably follow a good text description.
  4. Henlo!!!! I'm new here. I was wondering if any could point me towards some affordable pocket notebooks to write in that work well with fountain pen. I've heard of feild notes but I heard some of ya'll don't really like them.. also, bare with me, I don't really know how a forum works... Thanks!

    Platinum Pocket Pen - Nib

    Hello forum, I've just bought what I think may be a Platinum PKA 500. The design is white with green clovers, exactly the same as the pen in this link http://www.vitstyle.com/home/601-platinum-18k-gold-sf-nib-pocket-fountain-pen.html with one difference being, the nib is steel. I checked the photos very well, above the P symbol on the nib, nothing is written. Only some japanese under it. Does anybody have any expeirence with the performance of this pen/nib? And would it be possible to swab the nibs on it? I intended this pen to be a present for my wife but was hoping the nib would be g
  6. Hi all! Just got this cute little converter in the mail, and I thought it could be interesting to a lot of folks looking for converters for their smaller pens. This model does fit the liliput, so I think quite a few smaller pens will fit it. It is a push and pull (no twisting), and feels very well made. The opening was a little too small; I had to stick a toothpick in there and wiggle it a little bit for it to fit. But after the first time you plug it onto a pen for the first time, it's a nice fit. I carefully measured the ink capacity and it's about .58mL. So yep, not a whole lot... You p
  7. I'm a student, and I usually carry one of my nice pens (I don't actually have any cheap pens - just my grandpa's 51, Snorkel, and my Edison Nouveau Premier) in a leather sleeve in a separate compartment in my backpack. In my pocket, along with my keys and knife (and whatever else makes its way in there) I usually carry a cheap ballpoint or gel pen. Just a Bic or a G2, sometimes a mechanical pencil. I want to carry a fountain pen instead, and I was wondering what you thought would be best for something that I can throw in my pocket and not worry about it breaking. It's between a Preppy, a Metro
  8. Dear forumites, It's my 10th day on this forum and my first topic here. I really enjoy lurking through this site and my FP-mania grows with each passing minute Now today I've found a tiny fountain pen in my granddads closet. All I know is that it's a Pilot, maybe from '70s (or '80s. or '60s...). The nib is 14k 585. It's folding. And it's very thin. Kinda reminds me my Pilot Birdie pencil (however not that thin of course). Pictures: It's in excellent cosmetic condition. Folded. The color almost looks like surf green on my Precision Bass Posted: Disassembled with squee

    Pocket Safe?

    Is it safe to carry a fountain pen in your pants pocket? I wear cargo pants and like to carry a pen and notebook in my cargo pocket, but I'm worried that the pen will leak. The pen's that I'd carry would either be the Platinum Preppy, or the Pilot 78G. I'm not using an eye dropper conversion, just using cartridges and converters. They seem pretty secure, but I'd hate to ruin a pair of pants.
  10. I've been following this for a while, and see Massdrop just added a second color option for the Franklin-Christoph Pocket 40: https://www.massdrop.com/r/8DRCZ3 Having never owned an F-C, is this a good pen? Good track record? I'm tempted by the Ice with violet, but having just ordered an Edison (yippee!), it's tough to justify yet another pen unless it's a really great opportunity. (Mods: If posting the link violates any rules, please feel free to remove it.)
  11. I'm using a pocket Moleskine as sort of daily bullet journal , and having recently switched to using fountain pens as much as possible , I've found out that the notebook + Preppy Medium are not a good combo at all .. Looking for a notebook of ~ same size (3.5 inch*5.5 inch or 9 cm * 14 cm), preferably hardbound , and not too expensive. Also, needs to be available online as I'll need to have it shipped to me in Israel. Thanks
  12. I am in the market for an every day carry pocket fountain pen to be carried in the pants pocket with keys. I read a quote many years ago in Popular Photography magazine something to the effect of: "What is the best camera?....the one you have with you." In that same spirit, I don't always have my work bag, pen case, or desk with me. I want a pen to keep on my person at all times without worries. After researching, the Kaweco Sport seems to be what I am looking for. I LOVE the look of the aluminum AL Sports (especially after earning pocket-worn status), but I cant justify the triple price

    Lamy Mini?

    Hey all, has anyone ever heard of or seen a mini Lamy? Like a short version of a Safari or Al-Star? Has anyone ever wanted one? I think a pocket length Safari would be pretty sweet! Similar in size and use to a Kaweco. What do YOU think? Tim
  14. I was late catching the train this morning, late enough to get a good jog on. Not enjoyable in the slightest. I finally caught my morning train (it was late... Haw), sat down to read my morning emails and enjoy my tea... But then I saw them. Little patches of magenta, red and brown on my forearm, wrist and palm. I looked down... http://i164.photobucket.com/albums/u11/davidfielding3832/Mobile%20Uploads/IMAG0369.jpg Bugger. It seems I didn't cap my trusty little Kaweco securely enough when leaving the house and it managed to worm it's way free from the cap on my little jogging episode.

    Pocket Pen...

    Does anyone know anything about the Lanbitou pocket fountain pens, or others? I've only discovred their existance a couple days ago, and I'm curious. Figured I'd start with something "cheap" just to play around before getting a higher valued Pocket pen. And I do know about the Pilot Elites, botht eh 100 or so dollar and higher, and the $20 US dollar version. But i'm looking for alternatives. Thanks! ~Nikesh

    Dex Compact Fountain Pen Review

    IntroI have lately been looking to add a few low cost everyday pens to my collection so when I saw the UK high street and online retailer "The Pen Shop" had launched a new range of low cost fountain pens I jumped at the opportunity to add something new to my collection. The new youth orientated pens are under the Brand Dex as a division of their existing Kingsley own brand pens. I’m not really sure what to think of the name Dex as a pen brand, but hey, I may be too old to appreciate it’s name appeal, perhaps they were trying to associate the name with the once popular 90's Dexter’s Laboratory
  17. Hey everyone, I'm relatively new to fountain pens (I only have 2), and I was wondering how you guys carry your pens. Personally, my wardrobe doesn't include many shirts with pockets so that's out of the question for me. I've been carrying my pens (one at a time) in my pants pocket for about 4 months now; I simply slide the pen in and clip it on the pocket (making sure the rest of the picket is empty so that it doesn't get scratched), but I've seen many people on here strongly discouraging this and say that one should only carry the pen in an inside jacket pocket or a shirt pocket. Well, like I

    In Praise Of Moleskine

    I've always liked Moleskine notebooks and especially the pocket-sized ones - 9x14cm. Just ideal for the everyday 'get off my chest' sort of comments. A bit like my LOMO camera used to be for 'photo-thoughts'. I know that the Moleskines have a bit of bad press but that's probably down to people's reluctance to sort out what is right with Moleskine for themselves, rather than complain and whinge that Moleskine 'doesn't like my ink' sort-of thing. So I decided that I'd start using them again, in favour of the Leuchtturm pocket ones and see what happened. I've gone back to the soft-cover ones for
  19. Okay, I'm no good with paper reviews, so I'll just skip over that in this case since Kokuyo Campus paper is an old classic practically on par with Rhodia (at least for those of us who love our Japanese/Asian paper!) so it's bound to have been reviewed already. That's my story, etc. But I just HAD to share this totally adorable version that I recently found on Rakuten, because it is a total darling. Just look at that! That's a clip from a Lamy Safari for size: The best part for me, as a big fan of all things miniaturized, is that this is an exact replica of the larger Kokuyo Campus noteboo
  20. My EDC is a Parker 51 Aero, reporters style notebook, and a journal. I used to carry all the items separately but always wished I could consolidate. I made this for myself over the last week after seeing (lusting after) a pen case journal combo but not liking their choice of materials. If there is a desire for it I can make more of these to order. I used full grain vegetable tanned leather and hand stitched it using waxed poly thread. I will most likely only do plain and natural (unfinished) if there is interest as that is the aesthetic of the items I typically make as an artist regardless o
  21. Having seen the review of a cover made for Clairefontaine notebooks here, I eventually contacted Ray Clark and asked about producing one for me, for the Leuchtturm 1917 pocket notebooks I favour. Although happy with using Pelikan 4001 Blue-Black on Moleskine paper with perfect results most of the time, I've gone onto the Leuchtturm ones in both pocket and A5 sizes. So his response was marvellous - he said he'd produce the Leuchtturm model, which is only 10mm higher in effect, than the Moleskine template, for the same price. The one I chose was £35.00 plus the postage etc. I went for the simple
