  1. I'm trying to get this unknown pen from a pen lot purchase back in working order, It has "Arrow" written on the lever and a Signature 4 Made In USA Nib (See pics). Unfortunately, the clip is broken off so I can't be certain about the make of the pen. When I search for arrow pens all I get is Parker variants. Also, the clip slot is perpendicular to the barrel and it seems that a s shaped clip would work as a replacement. When I took out the inner cap a small tab fell out which I assume is what held the clip in place. However, I don't know what these types of clips are called and therefore can't search for them. If anyone can help, or knows of a source for these types of clips, it would be appreciated. JAB
  2. I found this cool looking pen in a junk box at the DC Pen Show. It has a gold nib and definitely had a sac installed so its not a eye dropper. There is a "USA" on the clip, but that is the only marking. There is a 3 on the nib and appears to be some writing below the plastic. So its an unknown pen. Did they make pens that had no filling mechanism other than the sac? It doesn't look like there is any room for an aeromatic cage or filling system. There is no hole for a match to push on a a j bar, or any other type of lever, or button. I'm stumped. Also, for these types of pens with such a covered nib, is it typically friction fit? I don't see any other way to get the nib in and out unless it came from the back. If anyone can identify the pen, it would be great too. Jim Bunch
  3. I've long liked Asa Gao but thought it came out too dark in several pens I tried. I settled on a Pelikan m600 with an 18k F nib, which had the advantage of showing some shading, but still came out dark. Then came along Hisoku which needed a pen that made it come out with the same colour consistently, and Asa Gao lost its home, although I'm waiting for another Pelikan. http://i66.tinypic.com/2eygh7t.jpg In the meantime I remembered I had a busted Waterman Lauréat with a nice nib, which leaks all its ink onto its cap, rendering it useless; and a no name pen a friend gave me some time ago, which I never really used but whose nib I still managed to destroy and lose. I fished it out but its rubberized finish felt sticky, so I applied some alcohol to remove it, revealing a plastic layer. Unexpectedly the Waterman nib fits, and makes Asa Gao look like I've always thought it could. Of course it remains to be seen if this will be a reliable combination, but it's a nice surprise that I can finally use Asa Gao in all its glory and the old Lauréat nib is still as smooth as I remember it. http://i63.tinypic.com/2h6dohi.jpg Conclusion 1: for me its clearly ink first, nib second, pen third. This unknown pen is heavy as it's made of some metal, but comfortable and has an inner cap which always helps. Conclusion 2: don't give up on that ink, it might look boring in a pen, as good and expensive as that might be, and spectacular in another, even a lesser pen.
  4. See attached photos of an old Sheaffer fountain pen I have had for years. The cap NEVER had a clip fitted nor is there any place for it!! It is god plated and uses a cartridge.
  5. I bought this pen off of Ebay. It had a very reasonable price attached to it so I went for it because the nib was described as flexible. I cannot find anything about the pen. It is marked Eastern on the clip and Frawley Pen on the nib. When I searched Frawley I found something about an ink manufacturer that became paper mate but nothing on Fountain Pens. If any of you know anything about this pen, its manufacturer, etc I will be very appreciative. I would really like to find another pen that looks a little better from the same manufacturer. I dont really care for the looks on this pen but the nib is one of the best I have used. Thank you in advance for your help. Sorry to impose. Aloha, T

    Unknown Old Pelikan Pen

    Hi Pen-Experts, Back in the days I received a Pelikan pen as a gift of my grandfather, who died in 1992. I cannot really make out what pen it is and would really appreciate your help. It was probably bought some time in the 1960s. I attach a general picture of the pen, but my (mobile phone) camera is not strong enough to photograph the small details, so I have to write them out here: - on the golden ring around the closing cap it says "Pelikan - W. Germany" - on the top (the golden part to write with, I do not know the name for it) it says: "18C-750" - on the same part a little below it says "OB", followed by a tiny symbol Apologies for my amateur description! Does anyone know what pen this is and can provide some details on it? Especially the meaning of "OB" - it does not seem to exist anymore?! Thank you for your help and all the best from Germany!
  7. A friend of mine recently picked up this pen and asked for my help in its identification. I don't know what it is. The only marking I see on the pen is a small diamond on the filling lever. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you, Adam Raymond http://i1370.photobucket.com/albums/ag267/morgoth833/download_20140705_194656_zps28529b66.jpeghttp://i1370.photobucket.com/albums/ag267/morgoth833/download_20140705_194649_zps6aeb19cf.jpeghttp://i1370.photobucket.com/albums/ag267/morgoth833/download_20140705_194651_zpsc1f7440a.jpeghttp://i1370.photobucket.com/albums/ag267/morgoth833/download_20140705_194653_zps2d66121e.jpeg
  8. One says Pierre Cardin the other says nothing but is very cute. I hope someone can direct me tp cartridges or converter. Do all types of pens accept a Lamy converter ? First one says Pierre Cardin but have not found any docuemntation about it. Only a photo with no description in the intenet. Also a gift from persons who knew I love pens, any type. Second t image is of a fountain pen with no ID in any place. Iguess those were made with design in mind, maybe not highly engineered. Anyway I like it and was agift which I appreciate. Both says Iridium point. Thank you for any help.
