  1. I have a Sheaffer Tuckaway pen of my father's, c. 1944-1945. It was recently professionally restored and I need to know the best ink to use in this type of pen. Is Noodler's Eel safe? Monteverde or Herbin? Do I need to use, or avoid lubricated ink for this pen?
  2. Hello everyone at FPN , on Friday I just bought my first vintage fountain pen a beautiful Parker 51 teal blue lustraloy cap in near mint condition and restored, I look forward to it coming soon . I'm looking for a blue-black or blue ink that is water resistant and does not fade like other blue inks I've used before such as lamy blue that behaves quite well but my notes that I took a few months ago are about to disappear completely and also with the water goes completely. For that kind of problems I usually use noodler's black and blue black which turned out to be good inks in my 2000 lam

  4. Can someone let me know the manufacture date for this pen. It is a Burroughs Fountain Pen On the transparent part of the barrel, it says Burroughs Pen Co 333 Washington St. Boston Massachusetts USA I've tried researching it, but I have not found any information on when it was manufactured. I found the pen on Ebay, and the seller doesn't have any information on the pen.

    Wilson Gold Coronet

    This pen was lying in my Fathers almirah , and is called WILSON CORONET. I do not understand how i can fill ink in it.There is a plastic container at bottom and that cannot be opened by any means. http://i64.tinypic.com/2802xs7.jpg http://i66.tinypic.com/v6lp20.jpg
  6. Just picked this little guy up on eBay... Hasn't arrived yet, but I'm wondering what I need to have on hand to clean it when it gets here? The auction description gave zero info on what materials it's made from (except the nib), so I'm not sure what solutions I ought to use to soak what looks like old gunked up ink out of the feed, etc. It appears I may need to de-gunk it before I can even get the nib & feed off to straighten it out. Thanks in advance for any tips! I'll post more photos (if needed) as soon as it arrives! (edit: Just realized how huge the original images were. Uploaded s

    Kaweco Dia 803 08 Piston

    My dear FPN crew, I'm a little frustrated. I found this beautiful Kaweco Dia 803/08 on Shpok (online flea market app essentially). I first cleaned it and flushed, and soon noticed that the cork must've shrunk over the years. I sat it in water for a few days, which couldn't revive the cork's functionality. So I tried to look up how to change the piston, and found out through this video, how to actually screw out the piston unit. Timo also pointed out in the video (at around 3:48) that unscrewing this part would prove to be quite difficult, because it's quite small. I already saw that people
  8. It was my father who planned the Varanasi outing last December , I was initially not much excited for the trip but as the trip progressed I quite liked the idea. Nevertheless Varanasi is around 250-300 Kms from Lucknow and a Night train world always work as long as you are in the AC compartment . So apparently we booked a rather decent hotel which we found out not to be so nice as on the left of the hotel just below two floors from our window was a milk delivery factory from where the Milk Delivery Guys refilled their cans and this went on 24X7 so there was a lot of noise even at 2 am . Well
  9. A friend found and gave me an old fp. It's gray and green marble plastic, side lever action refil mechanism, and the nib and clip says sapphire on it. Any clue who made this pen?
  10. Hey everyone! Recently inherited a vintage 146 from my uncle with a cracked cap, and took it into the Hong Kong Montblanc store for a repair. Had just the worlds worst string of bad customer service, lack of professionalism, and overall horrible attitude far beyond anything I've experienced in a long while. I really am hoping to write an email to someone at Montblanc - ideally someone in the Hong Kong, or APAC region - but really anyone who can help with customer service would be appreciated. After an hour or so of searching, I can't seem to find anything except for the CEO, J Lamber

  12. Hi guys, I bought this pen at the marché aux puces in Poland for $3 I am not the MontBlanc expert, so I am no sure what the model is. On the cap I can read: "4810" and below: "MONTBLANC//\\MEISERSTUCK". The pen has other imprints, but I can't read them in all. Something is on the barrel, but completly unreadable and on the head of piston (photo no 5)... maybe 2F, EF and D, but I am not sure.I think that body was made of black rubber. Pen has 18ct gold nib, marked 25 with MB logo. Anybody knows what model this is, when was made and what it's worth? Much more than $3? Thanks

    Ink For Parker Vacumatic

    Would you consider using J. Herbin Bleu Ocean 1670 in a Parker Vacumatic? Or De Atrementis inks? I have a Sherlock Holmes ink from De Atrementis I also like.
  14. Hello, This is my first post in the Pen History forum. I hope it is at the right place. This may not be clear, as it's a meandering post, a post that has been prompted by a conversation I had with obnubilator via PM. He of course agreed that I post it. Since it's a conversation, I will to preserve a conversational tone. *** This conversation started because I was reading one of obnubilator's Classifieds ad, and thought of sending him a note of appreciation: Since the question was quite open-ended, I received a question in return: I then tried to clarify what I meant, at the

    Orion 491

    Hi everyone! I found this vintage FP at a local garage sale here in Denmark. It's Orion 491 with lever filler. I searched the interned trying to find out more about the brand and the model. I found only one of them (among archived sales on a forum) - restored - and the seller mentioned the pen is from 1934. However, on a German website I came across another information that the company Orion Pen Co. changed the name to Miller Pen Co. in 1933 - meaning the pen must date from before 1933 - my guess is early '30s... Any help about sheding more light on this little thing? The nib
  16. Hello everyone! I am quite annoyed. I purchased a 50's Mont Blanc ballpoint pen some time ago and I'm having a hard time finding the good refill. When i got it, it came along with a Schneider Express 225 Fine refill which plastic bottom had been cut out in order to make its length fit the pen's body. It fitted perfectly but soon ran out of ink. I then learnt the Express 225 Fine refills are no longer produced and purchased a Medium size, thinking it would fit in anyway. But it didn't: the nib and pre-nib circumferences are a bit too large. The refill easily gets blocked when I am using
