  1. So I finally bit the bullet and bought a Pelikan m800 this weekend at a pen show. It writes wonderfully, I got a pretty good deal on it, and seems like a fantastic pen. One problem: although it's brand new, I brought it home to realize it's got some scratch marks, particularly on the metal part of the cap. I figure this is probably because it was laying out at a few pen shows before I bought it, so people were handling it, their rings and things scratched it, etc. It's otherwise in pristine condition. I should be able to return it, but I'm wondering if these are scratches that I could remove
  2. Hey guys, I need your advice!! I always liked the Parker Urban but didn't really think it was worth its 60 EUR price tag. I found a nice deal on ebay for 17,5 GBP + 6 GBP shipping (brand new) and thought I should go for it. The pen arrived today and although I would say that it is genuine, there are some things that bother me. A ) The pen arrived with a few small bumps/dings on the cap. They're not terribly visible but they're there and shouldn't be. B ) The pen arrived with a slide converter and no cartridge. I know that the Urban is supposed to come with a cartridge and no convert
  3. I bought one of the clear acrylic Gama Jumbo demonstrators from Asapens, and it's been a very nice writer from day one. Here is a photo (copied from their site): http://asapens.in/eshop/image/cache/data/GD-01-500x500.JPG I have had it for a few months now and use it regularly. And with use have come the scratches - inside of the cap, and nowhere else. The cap is scratched from all the way to the top of the nib to the rim. I've contacted Asapens and they have offered to help remedy the problem, but it will take time. To begin with, shipping to and from India takes, on average, 3 weeks - it's no

    "scratches" On Lamy Al-Star Coffee

    I'm a new FP convert...and now officially a Lamy addict...7 Al stars, 4 safaris, 1 cp1, 1 studio; anyway, bought a coffee "New" from an ebay dealer...just recently looked closely at it and the "LAMY" on the barrel has lines coming off the letters to the edge of the surface. Sort of like there was a problem with the machine that created the logo...all the lines are continuation of the lines in the letters (hope that is not too confusing)...it's driving me crazy...it is obviously a defect, (I hope)...and the place I got it from won't take it back... anyway, any help on this mystery would be GRE
  5. What, exactly, makes a pen a "user grade" pen? I see this term all the time, and am sure it applies to most of my pens...is there a specified amount of wear on an older pen that puts it in this category? Or something unusual like a really deep scratch or a personalization or a cap that doesn't quite fit? I'm asking for knowledge, but I'm also asking because, if I decide to sell any of my pens, I want to be able to describe them properly. Thanks.

    Removing Cosmetic Scratches From Phileas

    If you use only vintage, high-quality fountain pen, please move on. This subject matter is strictly for people like me who mess around with "genuine, non-imitation" plastic fountain pens. Plastic pens can receive minor or major scratches. So can metal pens, but many metals can be polished to remove most scratches. My Waterman Phileas began life as an inexpensive student pen. No lacquer finish. No solid-gold nib (at least that I've seen). No wood, glass, or ivory inlay. It was and still is a molded plastic pen cast in one solid color (and others bear a faux-marble appearance). I shouldn't
