    Spring Inks

    My winter inks are feeling drab and gray (I write with a lot of grayed colors in winter it seems). Even though here in mid-New England spring is still around a long corner the robins have arrived, the geese are honking in the sky, and the first green nubs of daffodils can be seen through the icy slush we got yesterday. The only really spring-like ink I have is R&K Alt Gold-grun. Anyone have any spring ink favorites?

    Sprung Nib?

    I'm afraid I accidentally sprung my Sailor 1911L nib a little. I may have accidentally given a tad too much pressure when writing. It's not bad at all. I can see a tiny separation between the tines, and the nib is writing more like a M than the MF it is (it is noticeably wetter than before). I don't have any skipping or hard starts, I just don't like that it has become much wetter. I may not have actually sprung it, but just in case, what measures can I take to fix it? Thank you.

    Twsbi Go Review (Brief)

    I recently have become very interested in the different filling mechanisms used in fountain pens. As a result, when the TWSBI Go was introduced with a spring-loaded piston mechanism at a reasonable (under US$20) price, I decided to order my first TWSBI. The Go is made of solid-feeling plastic. I like that everything on it feels nice and tight. The pen is a bit short, and I find the width a bit wide for the length of pen. It doesn't really seem to be intended for use posted, which is how I usually write (unless the pen is Capless). This is a demonstrator pen, so everything is on display
  4. I have a 1938 Parker Vacumatic with the lockdown plunger. I recent had it sent away for a diaphragm replacement. In the process, the repairman had to rebuild the plunger as it had seen some wear and had presumably been repaired at some point in the past. Unfortunately, when the pen arrived back in the mail and I removed the blind cap, I was greeted by a snake-in-a-can of spring and plunger button shooting out of the pen. It seems the button on the end of the plunger came loose from the metal plunger tube, letting the spring free from its housing. I've seen a lot of pictures of mostly disass

    Sheaffer Legacy Heritage Barrel Spring?

    Hello Sheaffer forum. I've been sold a new-in-box legacy heritage fountain pen that has the nasty habit covering my hands with ink every so often. No cracks or anything like that, the pen appears to be in good condition as per the ebay description. What I discovered was that, right at the bottom of the barrel, there is a spring. Now, correct me if I am wrong, but this spring is only supposed to be on the rollerball variant of this model, right? I mean, I did feel some resistance with first screwing the pen back together after inserting the included converter, but just thought that's how it

  7. Currently available and ready for a new home! The Spring & Autumn features Cherry Blossom petals and Maple leaves to depict their respective seasons. Abalone shells are used on one stripe on the barrel and some pieces can be seen on the cap. There are three designs on the cap made using tiny pieces of gold foil; a gold stripe, flowing water with a green background, and a hemp leaf in brown. The Pelikan logo on the crown, limited edition number and the artist’s signature are drawn in by hand using maki-e techniques. Comes packaged in a Paulownia wood gift box with documents. Equipped wit

We'll be getting these pens in at the end of th

    Parker Jotter Spring

    At local fairs I always buy Parker Jotter pens if I find them for $1 or less. They are all used and often had refills made by third part companies. What I noticed they also have different springs. Researching on internet I found that Parker today use type of spring as one on the photo. Most of my Jotter pens have it, but some have totally different shapes of springs. Can someone who has old original Jotter springs put here photos of them? Did Parker used always same shape of spring or it was changed during the time? Thank you!

    Where To Buy Pen Springs?

    The specific pen refill I'm using is the P900 Schmidt, which is measured at 3 7/8". I'm going to need to buy at least 100 of these springs at once. Any advice or direction as to where to buy such springs would be splendid!
  12. I recently acquired a smoky black OMAS 360 Vintage edition, that has a wonderfully springy broad nib. Was rather unexpected, but lovely to use. Any idea as to which OMAS pens have this kind of nib? Are all the 360 nibs of this type, or only the 360 Vintage editions? Any other, standard pen types have this nib?

    Unexpensive Fp Repair

    A while ago I discovered this pen thrown around a draw... It was a cheap Chinese pen with a marble-like body and oak cap finished with chromed fittings. The nib was damaged and tines blended apart. Moreover the ink cartridge was damaged and it leaked blocking off the feed and leaving horrible strains in the body. so yesterday I decided to dive the body into a weak bleached solution and restore the feed. As the nib was completely damaged and I had a spare semi-flex steel nib from fountainpenrevolution I decided to try a swap... First attempt was a completely fail. The nib´s body diameter was ju
