  1. Hello all Yesterday I got my Noodlers Safety Pen, filled it up, all worked. Coming home today and problems started. First the nib did not want to retract, it was stuck. I twisted the upper sleeve and somehow managed to unscrew the sleeve so I could take it off, the inner rod stayed in. I screwed it back on. Finally the nib moved after pulling a bit more. But: it retracts only half way! I cannot get the sleeve to screw off again, nor will the top nob unscrew as in the video which the leaflet refers to (same for the top nob on the cap). Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks a lot Andy

    The Myth Of The Artist Pen

    Greetings, It has been a while since I have posted. While I have many pens the focus of my collection is vintage Waterman pens. In particular, I focus on pens with flexible nibs. A few years ago I picked up a Waterman Artist Pen (Model 751) from the Fountain Pen Hospital. I can't remember if it was advertised as "New Old Stock" but it appeared to be brand new. Recently I was looking for more information about it. Having not found much at all, I decide to post my observations from the limited information that seems to be available. If anyone else has any experience with these pens, pleas
  3. Hello everyone. In the past I had made a publication that was to make a decision to get my first vintage flexible fountain pen and finally I could own one of these beauties.It is a moore safety pen in black hard rubber with a very good ink capacity since this is a long but slender pen.The pen feels quite comfortable and light in my hand is a pretty beautiful pen that always impresses people when they see a retractable nib of my moore.The 14k gold nib is small but has a good flexibility as the seller told me on his website that he lists it as a nib superflex. The 14k nib is an extra fine poin
  4. Hi Everyone, I am humbly requesting your aid in identifying the brand of this safety pen that resembles a vintage MB simplo. By the way, might anyone know what the white inlay is made out of? Appreciatively yours, Confucius_cat
  5. Hi all, this small safety model MB Rouge et Noir with what seems to be a gold body emerged from my late father-in-law's belongings (pics below). It's a very short pen (10 cm/4 in with cap on) and needs a bit of work since the nib in/out mechanism is a bit hard to operate. I'm trying to find out what year this model might be from and its potential market value. If anybody would provide more information, I'd be very grateful. Many thanks.

    Help Id Safety Pen

    Hi, folks. Can someone identify and provide any information about this safety pen? According to the engravings, it's a «Stoffhaas» 204, 14K nib #4, but I can't find any information on the web. Dimensions: Closed: 11,8 cm Uncapped: 10,4 cm Uncapped + nib: 12,2 cm Posted: 16,7 cm Thanks in advance.
  7. Hi, this pen has nothing inscribed, I have seen Watermans with this style. The nib puts Waranted Quality, 14KT-ST. The ebonite is like new, has been cleaned, had dry ink for years. What you see in the bottom is an O-ring because the ink comes out in that section, I do not know what I can do there, any ideas? The nib scratches enough to write, the tips are poorly aligned but have a lot of flexion. It only shows the name of the previous owner, no more letters. I had this clip, but the previous owner broke it by removing it.
  8. Purchased a safety pen and i believe it is a Matador. Nib says matador 18ct 1st quality. BUt, the barrel says MYCO? I have included pix. The nib is the size of #2 waterman.
  9. Yesterday i've attempted to repair a waterman 42 safety pen for the first time . everything has gone fine until i reached the cork seal. Of course it was old, full of dirty and almost in pieces. I managed to make a well-fitting one from a nice piece of cork but i've read somewhere that i'll need to boil it in paraffine or wax to make it works properly, but i can't find a complete description of the whole process. I've also read that someone use o-rings instead of a cork seal. Can someone link me a source where i can find/buy them? (possibly in Europe ) Thank you for the help!
  10. Hello FPNers, I was able to acquire the attached Europa Safety Pen and Pencil (18ct r.g. with Fine/Flex Warranteed 1sr Quality nib) on ebay for a good price. From what I understand, Europa was founded by Giuseppe Cavaliere. I think the company created overlays for Waterman, Parker and Montblanc. Can anyone point me in a direction to find out more info on the company and, perhaps, the model of pen (or correct any of my previous assumptions)? -Mike-

    Soennecken Safety Pen

      I have just got hold of this beautiful vintage Safety Pen made by Soennecken, a German FP company that stopped production in 1960. I guess these safeties are from the 1920's. Am trying to find someone in Delhi who knows how to handle these and do a servicing for proper maintainence. Would appreciate any comments or Inputs on these rare pens too!
  12. I have stumbled across the Merle Blanc retractable safety pen made in England. I have not yet found any information on similar Blackbirds and been wondering whether there were any or this particular Merle Blanc was just a rebranded version of the Swan safety pen made for the French market?
  13. Hello, I just acquired and restored a safety pen. Although I now know what it is made of, important questions still remain, so I was wondering if anybody knows more about the pen. I am not even sure I know how to fill it correctly, although I did manage to fill it. It fills through the end that the nib is also coming out from. Can I turn it upside down when the nib is in or I'll have all the ink on my hands? Is there a certain technique to fill it? There is a hollow screw that is supposed to keep it in place, which is now loose inside the pen as I can't figure out how to screw it with the insi
  14. Hello to everyone! I found that golden filled pen on my grandfather desk, could I have some information about? ps there's no nib Many thanks
  15. I have been shown by mail a short (9 cm) vintage waterman safety pen, dated 1916, that has no cap threads, no sign of cap wear, nor any obvious design feature to support a cap, tapered or otherwise. Has anyone seen others like this? If it were to be used as a desk pen, would the nib have to remain extended at all times? Is this just a pen that has lost its cap and is therefore essentially unusable? The seller couldn't help me, and before I send for it I wish I could know what to expect...
  16. Hello, I am new to this pen scene & I have in my posession an interesting pen. I'd be much obliged if one of you fine people could help me to identify it. I believe it to be a 1920's model 25, 35, or 45 safety pen with snake clip. I will include photos as well as a bit of an article from Pen World with a picture of what I believe is the same model pen as mine. Unfortunately the picture is small so its not the biggest help to me when it comes to identification. Unfortunately I don't know much of anything about pens, I'm just getting into it as a hobby after inheriting a few. I have
