  1. A year ago I "accidentally" transformed a pen I failed to finish into a prototype (kind of capless bulkfiller). This pen had several issues like an uneven finish, flow issues, ink burping when retracting the nib, no clip, bad ebonite quality: not the ideal workhorse. Here is the journey to this prototype improvement... Overal view of the 3 versions: All the pens have both an inkview and a view on the capless mechanism, an ebonite feed, and hold a large amount of ink. V1 has a flexible size 2 eversharp gold nib, V2 an V3 have a cursive italic nib gr

    Omas 360 Proto

    So Id like some input. I found and ordered an Omas 360 piston fill. This is the large size. I bought this pen to use and not abuse, but. not worry about scratching either. So Im looking at it, and its marked 000/360 PROTO. So now based on how expensive these pens are, Im wondering if I should just stash it away. The pen was probably unused before I inked it. Looking forward to your opinions.

    Omas 360 Proto

    So Id like some input. I found and ordered an Omas 360, piston fill. This is the large one and a piston filler. I bought this pen to use and not abuse, but. not worry about scratching either. So Im looking at it, and its marked 000/360 PROTO. So now based on how expensive these pens are, Im wondering if I should just stash it away. The pen was probably unused before I inked it.

  4. This is a bit of an essay! Apologies. The first Sauvage F.P. (as I understand it) was the Moonstone Blue (AT 0316-1). It was one of four styles listed in the 2008 catalog. By 2010 the Moonstone had disappeared, only to be replaced by new styles: the ever-popular Azurite Blue and the Stingray. The Stingray F.P. was AT 0316-6. The next Sauvage was Ivory/Pearl. It appeared in 2011 listed as AT 0316-13 In 2012 the first of the "Zodiac" pens appeared: the "Dragon" pens, black and red, AT 0316-8 and AT 0316-9. The eagle-eyed will spot that between the 2010 Stingray and the 2012 Dragon
  5. At the end of last week, September 15, I believe, an FPN member listed three pens for sale in the Classifieds section: 2 Eversharp and one Bexley. That particular Bexley pen is described as a Bexley 10th Anniversary Limited Edition in green pearl with red veins. The seller states, “With some help, I determined that this pen was a prototype, as it is missing the normal laser engraving and it has a blind cap to access the converter. The regular production models do not have a blind cap. I find that to be a strange description for this pen as The Noble Savage, in his review of a production Bexley
  6. We have all seen the dozens of books telling the story of the Waterman fountain pen beginnings and we all know about the L.E. Waterman and A. A. Waterman problems,, but... ...have many seen and read this tidbit of information? It's a fascinating read and actually makes one wonder if the details are genuine or if some of the Waterman historical facts could be erroneous?! Because I love history and things that are old (although my hubby is younger), I found this a very interesting read. Just wanted to share...thoughts? The missing pieces? (With thanks to Daniel Kirchheimer).
  7. Along with 5 other members of the FPN ‘fraternity’, I was sent a complimentary prototype of the Blackstone Axiom – a new pen design from the JustWrite Pen Company based in Queensland, Australia. It’s taken me a few months to get around to this review – mostly because of the ‘busyness’ produced by moving house in the lead up to the Christmas-New Year season – but the upside of this is that I’ve had quite a bit of time with this pen – and I have to say up-front, my appreciation for the pen has only grown in the time I’ve been using it. There are a couple of issues I think Kevin and the JustWri

    Pelikan 120 Merz & Krell Prototype?

    Recently I saw this 120 Merz und Krell on Ebay and was curios enough to buy it. The seller guesses that it may be a prototype. Have a look at the pictures, that shows a normal 120 and the odd one to compare: I do not see any difference comparing the capsNo difference at the filling knob and nib endSame imprints and cap ring inscriptionsThe barrel color is darker on the odd one The big difference is the ink window. The odd one has a striped ink window, double the length of the normal one. It even shows with the cap on.It has fine longitudinal stripes in the barrel color on clear transparent
  9. Visiting Fountainbel to have a nib (or two) tuned, I got a chance to snap these fabulous prototypes of his bulk filler - prototypes 100% engineered, designed and handcrafted by himself. The bulk filler is now being made and sold by Conid (conidpen.com).
