  4. Garcia-Deschacht “A&A” Sterling Silver Fountain Pen --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Andy Deschacht and Laura Garcia of “Garcia-Deschacht” collaborate on creating art in several forms. One of their endeavors is custom made-to-order fountain pens. I came across their website while looking for a large sterling silver fountain pen. Their site (www.garcia-deschacht.com) is a treat, with beautifully presented examples of their handmade custom pens in a variety of exotic woods, acrylics, and silver. I’
  5. To the point: any advice before I start using a Parker 75 bought used? One with the thinner section, fine size nib. Longer story: I'd given up on the 75 given that I have no way of trying them in person, and they are apparently thinner than Sonnets, of which I have two. But... I came across one for a low price, which seemed in good nick, and in the design that intrigued me the most, milleraies (yes, ciselé looks awesome too). So... Instead of wisely saving for the one pen missing in my collection, a Waterman Carène, there I go blowing the budget... Which was already seriously dented by a Pel

    Montegrappa Sterling Silver Fountain Pen

    Hello All! I am new to this site, but my father was a frequent visitor to any site devoted to pens, especially fountain pens. Unfortunately, he passed away a couple of months ago and left behind his collection. I am not completely ignorant on the subject, I have a few myself that were given to me (by him, of course) as gifts. His collection consists of Montegrappas, Sailors, Namikis, Lamys, Mont Blancs, Pilots, Watermans and more. My family has given me the responsibility of researching his collection, including the value of the ones that we are willing to part with. The first of which is a

    My New Little Friend

    Just got this interesting little feller...it's marked "Wahl", so it's pre-merger. This probably also explains the engraving style. Anyway, into the shop it will go. Here's a picture:

    St Dupont Fidelio Sterling Cap

    Hello everyone, I just bought this St Dupont Fidelio Sterling Silver cap FP BP set
  9. Hello Estie lovers, My first real "rabbit hole" into fountain pen collecting was the serendipitous purchase of an Esterbrook that had an 8668 palladium-silver nib attached. I have a background as a chemist and have long been in love with palladium; that coupled with the WWII history (another interest of mine) made this a fantastic discovery for me. It writes just beautifully! The first thing I did, being new to the game (and I still am!) was to look for advertising about these nibs and Esterbrooks in general during WWII. I loved finding ads stating that "only a few pens can be made" due to

    Parker 75 Florence

    Hello everyone, Two days back this super beautiful Parker 75 Florence joined my collection of 75s
  11. Hello everyone, I just purchased this set of NoS Aurora sterling silver fountain+ballpoint pens (only FP shown in the photos), i need help with identification of the model name and any other info, many thanks in advance
  12. Hi everyone!! I'm new here and I’m hoping someone can help me identify this pen and/or get more information on it. What I’ve figured out so far is that it’s definitely of Czech origin based on the 14 carat gold nib saying “CZECHOSL”. The cap also has a Czech silver mark of a goat head with a 3 underneath plus the US mark of 900 indicating that it’s 90% silver. There’s another mark that I’m assuming is a makers mark but I haven’t been able to pull up info on it. It appears to say K1P but I’m not sure if it really is a “1”. This was recently given to me after it was found in a desk. It was l
  13. It's been awhile since I've written a review, my last one being 3 years ago. Of late, I've been making it a habit to rotate my pens, to the tune of every 2-4 weeks. One of the Montblanc Writer's Edition receiving less love than their peers is certainly the Kafka. Hence my choice today Price: I bought this at the London WES in 2013 from a dealer for 450 GBP/560 Euros, being told it was 'mint' but anyone who's bought a pen or two could tell that wasn't true, from the number of micro scratches found on the pens which you would get with use. But the condition was good, the nib acceptable to w
  14. Hi All I'm new to this forum and would very much appreciate if you could help me to obtain any details about this vintage Waterman Ideal ballpoint pen that has been given to me by my father in law amongst many other pens when he was clearing out his house prior to sale. Info: (1) Appears to be a limited edition, the number of the pen is 829 of 2000(2) it shows Waterman 'Ideal' on the card and case.(3) Most likely purchased in the 80s. My father in law is Japanese but lived in France on business in the 80s. There is a chance that the pen was purchased in Japan. (4) The pen is of solid weigh
  15. Earlier this year, Anna and I visited Yard-O-Led in Birmingham and had a factory tour. You can read about it here. Enjoy, Martin
  16. Hello, I got this pen last year, and its one of the extremely rare instances where I buy a pen other than FP, but I couldn't resist this beauty, this edition is limited to only 100 pieces. Best regards.
  17. If pens were merely instruments with which we write, FPN would not be as extensive as it is. The truth is that our pens are not only the means of recording our thoughts and everyday tasks; they also say much about our passions, what makes us tick, our aesthetic sense. They are works of art, they give us an object on which to meditate as we are stuck in thought, they tease us with their bemusing patterns and jog our memories of simpler times. This review is about a pen maker who came to the game of making fountain pens relatively late in life, when he had already established his name and
  18. One of my earliest memories of pens being special and valued was a Parker ballpoint and pencil set my grandfather used to wear in his shirt pocket. I always thought they were special and I guess I coveted a set like that for my very own. He had them for many years, but they seem to have been lost during a move in the 90's sometime. So I don't have them now as a memento, but I remember them clearly and always associate that pen and pencil with him. Fast forward many years and I'm poking around on pen sites and there is the same pen that my grandfather had! Turns out it was a Parker 75 S

    Silver Pilot Mr In Europe

    Hello! I'm new to this forum and glad i found it. I was given a beautiful black Pilot Metropolitan a while back, but during a class it feel straight on the tip, bending it completely, and i have deduced from the internet that the most economical choice is just to buy a new Metropolitan. I'm not particulary fond of animal skin or retro pop designs, but those seem to be most readily available. My question is, where could i find a silver Pilot MR/Metropolitan (the one without animal skin or dots) in Europe? Does it even sell in Europe? Thank you for your responses, happy holidays!

    Polishing Silver Pens

    Silver pens like the Oppenheim and Gandhi (partly Silver) tarnish rather quickly. MB does have a polishing cloth that does an acceptable job of buffing the pen if it is slightly tarnished. Hoever, once it is a dark tarnish then only a silver polish like Silvo or 3M's Silver polish does a good job. Some say that the latter will eat up the Silver and therefore should not be used at all. Having a dull pen is not an option! Taking it in to MB for a service and polish each time is expensive and inconvenient. Any views, experiences or suggestions?
  21. I recently received a Caran d'Ache Ecridor in guilloché. It's a beautiful pen, but unfortunately I had to send it in for maintenance due to a feed issue. I was always under the impression that these pens were palladium coated. However, the owner of the shop I brought it to seemed to suggest it was silver plated, as was written in his catalog. One of the reviews on FPN mentions it's silver plated and palladium coated, and a second look at the Caran d'Ache website lists various models in different plating. Does anyone know what metal is on the Ecridor?
  22. So, I got this retractable Victorian dip pen today. It's my first dip pen. It writes nicely and I am enjoying it. I was told this was made in late 1800's or early 1900's, but I don't have any other information. I appreciate it if you could help me identify this pen

    A Prize From The L A Pen Show

    My specialty seems to be buying filthy, battered pens and keeping nibmeisters in provender. This one was lurking in a case next to something that turned out to be a very tarnished Mabie Todd. I bought that one, too, but that's another forum. It's a 452 1/2 V with a pattern I've never seen before, but it had a bad crack at the barrel end which my jeweler has skillfully repaired. Perhaps someone knows what this pattern's called? Pictures below:
  24. Ferrari da Varese Aura Sterling Silver Fountain Pen -M As part of the Exceptional series, the Aura pens engravings are inspired from antique times. Their caps are masterfully engraved by hand in accordance with traditional rules. The body and cap are crafted from sterling silver. The pen comes with an 18kt gold nib, medium in size and comes with a pump filling system. Together with the engraved patterns, the shape of the pen gives our ever changing world a look at the past. The pen is new and has never been filled or dipped. The dust sleeve shows wear from handling and the lining along

    Radical Surgery On A Precious Pen

    I bought a little silver ringtop on eBay: a Tiffany pen with a William Hicks nib. It's not especially different from other pens of this type, just subtly xbetter, more carefully made. Except for one thing: it leaked. When I uncapped the pen, the section would be covered with ink. I wore it to the L. A. Pen Show anyway, because it's such a splendid writer. Mr. Minuskin had replaced the bulb on the reservoir (it's that old) so I asked him what he thought the problem might be. He observed that there were no holes in the cap. This means that a sufficiently strong vacuum is set up to pull ink out o
