    The Super 5 Fountain Pen

    A couple of months ago now (in early October), I had to take one of my children (the youngest, and the only one who *really* likes fountain pens) for a specialist’s appointment in Sydney. We decided to make a day of it, to lessen the angst of being poked and prodded and hooked up to a bunch of machines, so… we just happened to wander past Dymocks in Sydney, which now has a fairly extensive pen and stationery section. In addition to the inks we chose together – and the 8-pack of colourful Ooly fountain pens my daughter asked to buy – I spotted a few Super 5 fountain pens going for half price. I didn’t need another fountain pen, I *really* didn’t, and yet… within a few minutes I’d picked out the yellow version with the B nib, and headed out the door. I’d seen these pens advertised in various online stores, though not recently, and hadn’t been tempted – but this has turned out to be a surprisingly good pen. ______________________________________________________________________ Appearance & Design The Super 5 pens on sale were brightly coloured – I had a choice between a bright red and a cheery yellowy-orange, and decided to go for the latter. The plastic is probably similar in quality to a Lamy Safari – sturdy, shiny, and fairly durable. You don’t feel like it’s going to fall apart in your fingers, or crack the first time you drop it. If you look closely, you’ll find the word “SUPER”, and a sideways “5” embossed on the barrel – but it’s not very visible. The snap cap comes off to reveal a surprisingly weighty metal grip section (coated in some kind of black ceramic?), and a proprietary steel “Super 5”-stamped nib. In shape it’s not too dissimilar from my Jinhao 992, though the grip section is somewhat longer and girthier. Very impressive packaging... The back end of the pen can be screwed off, to reveal the bottom of the cartridge or converter. I struggle to see the purpose of this – it’s just a weird / interesting feature. The black-coated metal clip stands out from the yellow body – I like the overall appearance, though it’s nothing “special”, just a lovely bright inexpensive pen. … Construction & Quality The pen is quite sturdy, fit and finish is great, the snap cap snaps on and off without issue – everything looks pretty good. I don’t know what kind of black coating has been used to coat the metal clip and grip section, but it’s not unduly slippery, and so far shows no signs of scratching or flaking away. My only complaint is that the clip is quite stiff – it could be a challenge to clip it onto a thicker-fabric shirt pocket. … Weight & Dimensions The Super 5 sits nicely in my ‘sweet spot’ for a standard pen – 139mm capped, 125mm uncapped, or 153mm posted. The grip section of the pen ranges in diameter from 9mm (closer to the nib) to 10.55 mm, with a ‘step up’ where the cap clips on, to 12mm. The pens weighs 24.8g capped, and 19.6g uncapped. The one big surprise is the weight of the grip section – being metal, it weights the pen significantly towards the front of the pen. This might be off-putting for some people, but I took it in my stride – I actually liked the substantial feel this gave to an otherwise insubstantial pen (at least in terms of weight!). … Nib & Performance The B nib is definitely a B nib – it lays down a fairly wide line. It’s fairly wet and very smooth – a pleasure to write with. This is not my hand. But this is my handwriting... A close up of the nib. … Filling System & Maintenance The Super 5 pens come with a single cartridge of their permanent blue ink – I haven’t yet tried this. I stuck a Kaweco standard international converter into the pen, and it worked just fine. I own a piston filler and vacuum filler pens with much larger capacities, but for most of my writing (especially with non-blue-or-black inks) I’m happy with the 0.5-0.8mm capacity of a cartridge converter. … Cost & Value I think I paid AU$15-20 for this pen (it was half-price) – a better than fair price for the quality. Would I pay full price for a Super 5 pen? Not sure – though they’re cheery and functional – but I’m *very* happy with the pen, given the price I paid. … Conclusion The Super 5 pens (and their accompanying inks) don’t seem to have done particularly well, at least in the American and Australian markets – but this is actually a pretty nice pen. Worth keeping an eye out for! …

    Pelican 140,

    i found a pelican 140 for about $80 us. how do i know if i am getting a 40s or 50's etc pen? the nib says 14c 585, and has the pelican logo on it. is this a semi flex nib or the ultra semi flex? how do i know how flexie this nib is by looking at a picture? the seller claims it is in perfect working order, i am on the fence with this purchase, can anyone help?
  3. Hi everyone! I recently picked up this pen that I believe to be from the civil war era. The nib says "John Foley's Bank Ben New York No. 7" I have seen varying versions online, but they all have a date on the nib; this one does not. Is that a problem? This does seem to be from the civil war era, but again, I am not an expert in this. I'm looking for more information on this such as when was it made, if it is okay that there is no date on it, what is its worth, that sort of thing. Any and all help is much appreciated. Thank you! Pictures can be found here because they are too big/too many to upload https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RuRTQbTIIVBUo-FK_QZFKnIdYjC7RXjJ
  4. Hi everyone! I recently picked up this mechanical pencil that I believe to be from the civil war era. It is a slide pencil, has a screwable jewel top, and the name "Ezra C. Dean" engraved on it. The mechanical mechanism slides in and out, the jewel top comes off, and the hook loop on it also slides. I'm looking for more information on this such as who made it, when was it made, what is it exactly, what is its worth, that sort of thing. Any and all help is much appreciated. Thank you! Pictures can be found here because they are too big/too many to upload https://drive.google.com/open?id=1y0mBbdECrPOceGDBoCoLkEj-yrhHq12v
  5. So, I'm going to use the Pilot Metal Falcon as the example for this considering it's by far my favorite fountain pen. About 6 months ago I purchased a used one off of Ebay for 158.00$. They are about 240.00$ brand new. Whoever previously owned the pen either didn't use it very much at all, or they took excellent care of it. If i were to show it to you when it arrived (and even now) and told you I bought it brand new, you would have been lying if you could claim to tell me you knew for a fact it was used (without *extremely thorough* visual evaluation). When I bought this pen there were only 3 colors available but now there are about triple that, so I decided that eventually I want to have one in every color. The thing is, I'm not rich by any stretch of the imagination, and it's a rather expensive pen especially for myself, and had I purchased the pen brand new and then decided to sell it on Ebay or elsewhere 6 weeks later I wouldn't get anywhere close to the 240$ I would've had to pay for it even if I never even touched it (other than opening it). So, I'm almost wondering why I'm even asking the question considering that the answer seems rather obvious to me, but....... If I want to collect these pens not only as a hobby but as a sort of asset, should I always search high and low for the best price and ***ALWAYS*** buy used fountain pens? Also, if the answer to that question is as obvious as I assume it is, I have an additional question that I could use some advice on: Is there a way to know what a good deal is when buying a used fountain pen? The example pen I used I purchased for ~66% of the price I would have paid had I purchased a brand new one. That sounds like a good deal, but I had absolutely nothing to compare it to as it was literally the only use Pilot Metal Falcon on Ebay at the time. Thanks in advance for any input. =)
  6. Does anyone have any insight into how much an 888 edition of the Montblanc Patron of Art Karl de Grosse, Charlemagne fountain pen would be worth on the secondary market? I see one being offered on Ebay for about $10k, but no results there or on LiveAuctioneers, Invaluable, etc. It is lightly used but with no apparent flaws, and I do have the paperwork and boxes. Thanks in advance!
  7. Hi Everyone, I came across a porcelain Inkwell with Sand Shaker and am hoping someone here can tell me more about it. I have it for sale on eBay and a member pointed out the wells are different size and the elaboration is different. On the bottom are some markings but I wasn't able to find any other information. That's when I happened to come across this website :-) I'm hoping someone can give me guidelines about it's worth. Thanks, Rick
  8. I inherited this pen when my father passed last year I cant seem to find out exactly which pen model it is or its value. Any help is appreciated thank you.
  9. Hi, I came across an old pen of my grandfather's. I am guessing it is from the 80's. It's an old Dunhill rollerball with a weighted desk holder. The pieces separate. Does anyone know it's worth? Cost to restore? Is it any good? Etc.? Any help would be greatly appreciated, as it is the only thing I have of my grandfather. Thank you, Scott

    Montblanc Meisterstuck 146 Set Value?

    Hello. I recently got my hands on a complete Meisterstuck 146 set (Fountain pen, rollerball, ballpoint, and mechanical pencil, all black with gold trim) and was wondering: about how much is the whole set worth? They've all been used before but are in nearly mint condition (though the boxes for the ballpoint and mechanical pencil are missing). Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

  13. Hi First of all, let me say this is a great forum. I've been reading it for quite some time, but just now registered to make my first post. A few days back, I was allowed to steal a Parker 51 from a thrift shop. All I had to do was pay the 6 bucks noted on the price tag My knowledge and experience with vintage pens is limited. As I was looking at the pen in the shop, I had a faint recollection of reading about the Parker 51, but didn't remember what I had read. For $6, it was worth checking out anyway, so I happily brought the pen back home to test, and do some research. I am pretty certain I have picked up one of the later versions of the pen (Mk3?). The rear end of the barrel has the almost flat, conical shape. The clutch ring is slim, and the sac guard is all metal, with no plastic cap on top. The clip and jewel are two separate pieces, indicating it is from before 1973. The clip is long, and it has "51" inscribed twice on the cap. Wish I could include some images, but I don't have the pen with me. I have tested the pen for a few days, after simply soaking and cleaning, and it works flawlessly. Great ink flow, no leaks or anything. Very smooth fine/medium nib. The ink sac was actually quite clear, so I don't imagine the pen was used that much. It has a few scratch marks on the cap and body, but no dings or other damages. The body is plain black (unfortunately engraved with a name), and the cap looks like the one to the left, in the last picture on this site (link). As you can imagine, I am very happy with finding this pen. Could anyone tell me how the Mk3 compares to other ones, both in terms of market value and build quality/performance? I haven't been able to find any information about this. Cheers, Håkon
  14. This review and others can also be found at my website: www.pensinksandpaper.com The Indian fountain pen market is an interesting dichotomy between cheap, largely unreliable pens, and gorgeous handmade pieces of ebonite that are a joy to write with. This pen falls firmly into the latter category. Appearance & Design (9/10) – The Ranga is absolutely gorgeous in a way no picture I could take will ever convey. There’s something about rippled ebonite that even the most experienced pen photographers (one of which I am most decidedly not) cannot convey in their work. If you have never seen a pen made from rippled ebonite in real life before, go buy one now. I promise you it will not disappoint. The size is perfect for what I was looking for, and Mr. Kandan (the pen turner who created this masterpiece) was very cooperative in making sure the design was perfectly made to my tastes. There was a slight communication error in ordering a color, but it was a happy accident; I love the color I have now more than I think I would’ve liked the other and Mr. Kandan helped to rectify the situation almost immediately with a partial refund. (Which I naturally used to help fund another Ranga… I couldn’t help myself.) The only flaw in the design of the pen is the cap posting. It does post, but not very securely, and the pen feels awkwardly long when posted. Otherwise, the design is flawless; this is a truly gorgeous pen. Construction & Quality (10/10) – You can’t beat handmade. The pen was obviously crafted with great care, and there is an undeniable beauty to having a pen made from a single piece of material with no seams or manufacturing nicks to be found. Although the 2C is the lightest and smallest Ranga available, about the length of a Lamy Safari and a bit thinner, it feels solidly made, and the ebonite of the pen is smooth and well finished. Handmade pens are always special in my opinion, and this one is no exception. They are made with special care and attention that no mass-produced pen can be, and the results are magnificent. Nib & Performance – The nib section of this review is where my experience may vary from that of others who use this pen, so I will refrain from giving a numbered score in this section. I set the stock nib aside almost as soon as I received the pen, and had replaced it before I inked it up for the first time. I did this because I use this pen for small annotations and Calculus, so I replaced the nib with an Extra Fine from JOWO of Germany. The 2C fits a number five nib perfectly as a replacement for its original nib. This is different from most Rangas, which accept number six nibs. The nib I swapped in was purchased from fpnibs.com, who also provide excellent service as well as a variety of affordable nib services. Filling System & Maintenance – The 2C is an eyedropper filler, so for a small pen it has a significant ink capacity, around 2-2.5 mL. This becomes especially significant (and useful) when you use an extra fine nib. I have not experienced any issues with burping, and the pen is relatively easy to clean. Cost & Value (10/10) – A handmade ebonite pen for $18 is unbeatable value. Mine came to a total cost of $28, including shipping, if you factor in the JOWO nib, but when you think about it that is an incredibly low price. It’s a handmade ebonite pen with a very nice German nib used in much more expensive pens smoothed by a nibmeister for the same price as a Kaweco Sport. (I have nothing against the Kaweco, it just happened to be the same price and a good comparison) At that price, the Ranga 2C represents an incredible value and I’m glad I purchased one. Conclusion (9.67/10) – The Ranga Model 2C is both a gorgeous pen and a fantastic value. Mr. Kandan is pleasant to work with, and happy to answer any questions. Should anything go wrong, he rectifies the situation almost immediately. The pen itself writes beautifully, and is both reliable and well made. It has been one of my daily writers since it arrived, and I can’t see it stopping in the near future.

    Vintage 144: Seeking Advice

    I have some questions that I'm hoping the assembled MB experts can answer. Posing them requires some background information, which I hope will be interesting by itself. Some time ago - about 18 months or so - I walked into a slightly run-down, old-fashioned store in an unnamed German town that sells some books and some stationery, mostly catering for the school market. I asked the owner if he had any fountain pens, and he showed me a small range, most of which was new old stock from the 1990s or earlier. He also had one Montblanc pen - a 144. The cap had a flat top and a wavy clip, and the end of the barrel was rounded. Although the styles don't really match, the cap is a perfect fit. The pen was fitted with a lovely (14K) 3B nib. The owner had no idea of the age, but it looked like it was quite a lot older than the other pens in the shop, and is probably from a personal collection. It was clearly used - the piston mechanism was entirely gummed up and the feed was flithy with dried ink. The owner let me dab some water on the nib and the dried ink allowed me to write a little, which produced a very nice line. Anyway, I asked if he was interested in selling it, at which point he got a crafty look on his face and he said he would send it away to Montblanc for them to repair, as they used to offer a lifelong guarantee. I wished him luck and said that I would pop in at some point to see how he was getting on. Between then and now, I've been back three times, at long intervals. The first two times, he was waiting for MB to get back to him. The last time I went, he had received the pen back from MB: they had apparently wanted nearly 500 Euro to work on the pen, without any guarantee of a successful repair, and he had, unsurprisingly, refused the offer. The owner wants to try to find someone else to work on the pen - the look on his face tells me that he thinks it's worth a great deal of money, perhaps more than anyone is prepared to pay him. I am not a major MB fan, and I'm a user not a collector. But I did really like the nib on that particular pen. So I'm going to return in the second half of 2017, as my travels allow. It may have been repaired by then, but it's just as likely that it will be in the same state as before. As far as I'm concerned, MB's price quote suggests a challenging repair - well beyond my own limited skills - and any repairs would be expensive, perhaps prohibitively so. The nib (and cap) may in the end be the only things salvageable. By now, I'm interested more in the saga than in acquiring the pen. So, here's where my questions come in. Given only the information availabe in this post, 1) Does my understanding of the pen seem sensible? 2) Would you make an offer on the pen in unrepaired state, taking a risk on being able to have it repaired? 3) How much would you be prepared to offer for the pen in unrepaired and repaired state? 4) If I were to buy it and could salvage only the nib, which other models would the nib fit in? I'm really looking to test my understanding, with a view to using any responses as 'ballparks' if I do manage to get back there next year some time. Thanks in advance!

    Best Value

    I was wondering what everyone's take is on good value fountain pens out there. Best pen under $50? What about best under $100? Am curious to know!
  17. A friend of mine purchased this Waterman - either a Hemisphere or Ideal, not sure - the box says "Ideal" - in 1990 while in France. She wants to sell it to me but has no idea what it's worth. She paid 160 Francs in '90, so about $30. It needs to be cleaned, and she thinks a new nib. Nib looks fine to me, but I could be wrong. Pics below. Any help on value, what to do to clean before inking, and if you think it needs a new nib, would be greatly appreciated! http://i208.photobucket.com/albums/bb176/clmautz/2014-10-22121937.jpg http://i208.photobucket.com/albums/bb176/clmautz/2014-10-22122200.jpg Thanks! Bamboo...
  18. Okay, I am going to once again call upon the wisdom of the Estieville community for guidance and information. In my research, I've not been able to find any information about my unopened NOS Esterbrook dip nibs, Assortment #11. As there are 144 points in the box, I'm not sure if I should keep the box sealed and intact or should I crack the thing open and use some of the nibs? I have dip pen nibs, so I'm not in need of them necessarily, but does anyone know where I could find a listing of what WAS Assortment #11 without opening up the box? Should it not be of much value, should I open it and use/sell some of the nibs? This is way out of my league. Thanks for the read.
  19. Levenger and their True Writer series presents a bit of a puzzle in their value proposition. On the one hand, I have a Kyoto True Writer, gotten for a cheap price on a deal, which is a wonderful pen: lovely writer, well balanced, and very pretty. So I thought about adding a stub nib to it, as a fun option. Visiting Levenger, I discovered that regular nib units run $30, not great but not horrible either. Stubs, however, cost double! That's about what I paid for the whole pen! And seems like a total ripoff. So what's the deal? Is there some justification for charging double the price for a stub? Do they really cost so much more to make? Or is this pure price discrimination on Levenger's part where normal people get the "good" price on fountain pens, but those of us who love them get killed on "specialty items" like the stub. More broadly, does Levenger represent legitimate value or is it a ripoff?
  20. Okay, this might be a rather dumb question, but when one purchases a pen and it comes in a box, do you always keep the box? I have lots of pen boxes (some still storing the pens, others empty and some empty with booklets and paperwork) of those pens that I've purchased new in the past 25 years. Obviously, vintage pens or those "found", pen show purchased, swapped, etc. usually are boxless, but does the box on some pens make them anymore valuable? You realize that if this addiction hobby continues, I could easily acquire MORE boxes and that would require MORE storage space! Like I said, dumb question, but I'd be curious what others do. Tell me.....

    Bottled Ink Cost - Per Ml

    I really like how The Writing Desk shows the cost of ink for sale per ml. Perhaps this is in part to push the sale of their own rebottled Diamine ink at a lower cost, but it helps me see the overall cost vs volume. Looking at the Goulet Pens website, here are the current costs per milliliter of bottled ink for the most common and available brands in the US: Aurora - 45ml, $15.00, $.33 per ml DeAtramentis - 35ml, $12.50, $.36 per ml Delta - 30ml, , $15.00, $.50 per ml Diamine - 80ml, $12.75, $.16 per ml - 30ml Registrars, $15.50, $.52 per ml - 100ml Registrars, $29.75, $.30 per ml - 30ml Flowers & Music 10 bottle sets, $89.00, $.30 per ml J.

  22. William Mitchell's Pen Collection I have inherited this collection from my grandfather. It has about 110 to 125 nibs intact and about 60 to 70 years old minimum, I guess. Please if someone has information about this collection please advice, its value and details.

    Identify The Parker

    Let's play a little game I call "Identify the parker" (it's really just a nice way of me asking you to tell me what pen this is). If someone could identify and value this Parker pen, that would be much appreciated (I have another Parker pen that needs Identifying, so look at my created threads for that). Anyway, here are some pictures: http://i.imgur.com/RDDuwxC.jpg http://i.imgur.com/06p5YbS.jpg http://i.imgur.com/pNTE6vd.jpg http://i.imgur.com/2DRNRCG.jpg http://i.imgur.com/bdxKtQQ.jpg Thanks in advance guys

    Doric Questions.

    Hi all I have mainly been a lurker on FPN, but I have a question. I impulsively bought a Doric off of EBay, for around $100.00. I really shouldn't be spending any more money on pens till I fix, repair and sell some of my collection. However I jumped in the auction and managed to land the pen. According to the description it is a manifold nib. I have been reading about Dorics a little here and there and I see some pens came with an adjustable nib. Did I overpay for the pen since it has a manifold nib? Pen looks to be in good condition, it would I am sure need a new ink sac. Should I attempt the ink sac repair myself or leave it to the professionals? Who would you have repair the pen? Should I consider putting a flex nib in it or leave it alone?
