  1. Heres an interesting little thing which I snagged on eBay, a Brevetto 599/600, possibly an OMAS pen although I cant be sure. Perhaps it looks familiar? I doubt its a coincidence, whomever designed it seems to have drawn their inspiration from the iconic Parker 51, if it were an OMAS, it wouldnt be the first time theyve looked to a Parker pen for inspiration. There are subtle differences, such as the extent to which the feed protrudes beneath the nib, and less subtle ones, such as the section of transparent bands in the hood. Another notable difference is that the clutch ring has been reduced
  2. Hi, just rediscovering fountain pens - after 10 years not writing with them (but used them all through school) - I came across this pen - can anyone tell me what it is? it has a brushed steel body, gold tone clip, and gold tone nib with "M" with scrolling ornamentation either side of it:
  3. Hi Everybody. First of all I have been reading this forum a long time and the community is great! Today I managed to go on an old market-bazaar and I have found two fountain pens which I bought for under 3$. One was a Parker 25, as soon as I identified it I wanted the other one, maybe it is a gem too . So my question is, anybody has an opinion what brand/type is this pen in the pictures? It had a Parker cap but as it can be seen in the pictures the pen has a "screw cap tread" above the section, so probably the cap is not the original one, just a replacement (it fits quite well though t

    1989 Montblanc Id?

    A friend's grandfather is selling his pen and I am considering going to take a look at it. It was a corporate gift to him many years ago (~1989), so he doesn't know which model it is (he says it's cartridge only, but he could be mistaken about that). I'm not that knowledgeable about MBs either, but I do know the slimmest models don't suit me. It's rather a long drive, so I was hoping to identify the model in advance if possible, and save a trip if it's not right for me. I'm hoping there is a Montblanc expert here who can tell which model this is. Sorry for the lousy photos; this is all he wa
  5. Hi! I was in a local stationery shop today and picked up a Laban fountain pen at 50% the $82 price tag. The lady in the shop told me that she has had that pen forever and would give it away at that price since she has had it so long. My first reaction was that this must be a Laban Maya (http://www.penheaven.co.uk/laban-maya-925-sterling-silver-and-black-fountain-pen#), but if you look at the clip on the pen at the link and at the one I got, they are very different. I'm confused, as this is my first Laban and I don't even know what it is!! Any help would be GREATLY appreciated
  6. I have always had a love of fountain pens since I was in grade school as my sixth grade teacher advised using one instead of a rollerball to improve my penmanship. Sadly, it didn't help much, but it did instill a wonderment for their beauty and they way they did write. It had been years since I had used one and through collecting beer steins on ebay, for giggles, I looked up vintage fountain pens. As I looked through the lot, I came across tools for rebuilding and restoring these timeless writing instruments to their former glory. So, off to Youtube to see if their were any videos on the subje
  7. Hi I am enjoying researching old fountain pens but am relatively new to this area. Recently I cam across this nice looking pen but am unable to work out what ot is or who it is made by. Is there anyone out there who could help me please? Many thanks. I have triedto add photos - any problems or help please get back to me. Looking forward to hearing some news :-) http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/8/3/6/5/2/7/webimg/816265368_o.jpg http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/8/3/6/5/2/7/webimg/816265382_o.jpg http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/8/3/6/5/2/7/webimg/816265388_o.jpg
  8. hello im new to the forums and have decided to join to figure out the maker of a vintage pen I recently bought. It is in good shape for the most part, but I have no idea who made the pen. I am hoping somebody on here has an idea of where it came from and who made it. It is made of what appears to be a brown marbled ebonite and had a simple gold pocket clip and lever for filling ink. It has a 14K nib, and on the nib it says "PATD". I love the look of this pen, It has a beautiful brown color but i have no idea who the maker is. I need to replace the nib and I need to know who the maker is. A
  9. I recently purchased a black chased hard rubber pen on eBay, with the only markings being an imprint of a soldier on the cap, and "Cadet 14K 2 S" on the nib to give any indication of what make or model it might be. I've been trying to research Cadet, and have turned up nothing but Sheaffers (which this pen is decidedly NOT) and Summit, perhaps? It's a really nice pen, great writer with great flex, and much cleaner now than the listing photos I'm sharing. I'm just befuddled by the lack of information. And hoping that someone more knowledgeable of pen history might be able to shed some light o
