Hello. I have acquired a very used Parker B5 Big Arrow on the Japanese used goods market. Reading the description on Parkerpens.net, it was offered in "black" (body color) for the period 1979-1981. However, the one I have acquired is an English "burgundy" with English black F refills (a black body color B5 must have American black F refills). I could not see any B5s other than "black" on ebay or in any other online vintage pen store. If you have any information on the standard color versions of this pen, refills, or other specifications, please provide them. My post will serve as a case report, but I would also like to know if the B5 is a model that specifies a black body color, refill country of manufacture, size, etc. Any and all information is most welcome and appreciated in advance. https://parkerpens.net/parkerb5.html *This is a reference video about B5. You can read the instruction manual for B5 in the program. (around 8 min 10 sec) https://youtu.be/SzhJTwD8Q3A
Purchased a Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen. As expected there is a Germany 2 stamp on the back of the pocket clip. However, on the side of the pocket clip the Lamy logo was not laser engraved. Instead the letters are raised. Is this an older variant of the logo? A newer one?
I recently purchased set of Variant(discontinued), Isograph and Rapidograph pens. All still working It got me thinking, how many people are still using these and which do you prefer the Isograph or Rapidograph?
