  1. Long time ago I got this Soennecken fountain pen from my father. I am not shure if the pen was from my father or grandfather. I assume the pen is made in the period 1950 - 1960. Does anybody know this pen and what the value might be?
  2. I'm trying to establish a timeline for the dates that Soennecken used these Gold and Steel nibs in their pens. The first one on the left came from a 507 (circa 1938), but I'm curious to find out which year Soennecken first allowed this type of steel nib (crown w/ 3 jewels and "S", all beneath the big "V") - were they an option for their pens as early as 1930? Certainly they were the standard 1938-1945, but when did this particular style end, and when did the appearance of their steel nibs change over to #3 and #4 from left (crown w/ 3 jewels and "S" beneath "Soennecken", and no big "V")? Was it 1947 or later? Does anyone know when that newer style steel nib was phased out? Regarding the 2 gold nibs pictured: I believe #2 from left was used 1930-1937, and fairly sure after post-war production picked up again around 1947 until the late 1950's. Any thoughts? The first time I've seen the newer style gold nib (#5 / far right - big "S" superimposed over an "O") is around 1960... but I'm wondering how long this style gold nib was used (?). - Don Jr.

    Rebuild Keyway

    I have a recently arrived Soennecken which will allow only very short piston travel, about the length of the ink window or less. Taking it apart, the piston mechanism uses a key on the piston running in a recessed keyway inside the barrel. Examining inside the barrel, I could see that the plastic is slightly fractured on the clockwise (from the back) edge of the keyway. What happens is that the piston draws up then the key enters the fractured section to the side, under torque from the piston knob, and jams there having no further straight path up. A bit like a train accidentally diverting to a siding with no exit route. The first obvious possibility is to rebuild the fractured section, perhaps with an epoxy. The difficulty will be to keep the barrel concentric and to shape the edge sharply. Fiddling around a couple of centimetres down an 8.5 mm barrel, I am not confident of that being a great success, if there is a better resort. Has anyone experience of this type of repair? What worked? I could ask the vendor for money back on the pen sold as already restored (they replaced the cork seal). I prefer to make things work if I can.
  4. Hi, I have found this Soennecken pen in my grannie's drawer. Any idea what series it could be? It has no numbers, no names apart from the brand name....It has a gold 18 kar nib...with brand name on it too. Thanks in advance for your help..... M

    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!
  6. 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 insides of the pen in... (Don't worry, the grommet is holding everything in place!) Please help, if you can. I absolutely love the pen, and the nib is the most incredible flex I have ever seen! It is an EF, according to the inscription, but it is much thinner than that, and I can flex it at least eight times the size of the fine line, without ever seeing any railroading.
  7. Is there any difference in the size of the nib between the Superior and the Extra?
