  1. Disclaimer: I am new to vintage fountain pens. I recently acquired a Mabie Todd Swan (photos of the pen and some scribbles below) and would appreciate assistance with the following items: I know very little about this pen and would like to learn about its provenance, approximate age, model and comparison with other Swan models, etc. The body of the pen is marked "Eternal" but the nib is not. Does this mean that the current nib replaced the original? The pen is a very nice writer once the ink is flowing; it can feel very smooth, provides nice line-width
  2. Here is a small self-filling Swan with a flexible #2 nib. I know little else about this pen and would appreciate any information (model, manufacture date, etc).
  3. At a local vintage store, I have found some vintage ink. Some of it was GTG right out of the bottle, most even almost full, and then there was the one which was just powder at the bottom of the bottle. I bargained with the owner and got for about 1 $, basically thinking, "well, if nothing else, it's a nice bottle". This is, BTW, a real aged bottle & box where the founder of Pelikan, Günther Wagner, is prominently displayed. At that time, perhaps the Pelikan brand was not so widely recognized? The type of ink is Königsblau, or Royal Blue, which is fine for comparison, since I already

    LAMY Inkomatic N.E.G

    I recently picked this pen up as it was a good price, but upon googling I didn't find any information about it at all. I eventually found out about the Lamy 27, which is quite well documented, and obviously the 2 pens are related. It shares characteristics with the 27 31, but even that isn't the same. It's a very nice pen, and it reminds me of a parker 45, but still if anyone knows anything about it or could help research it? Mostly just what the difference is between the Inkomatic and 27 line, what year or years it was made and what N.E.G actually stands for? I disassembled and cleaned t
  6. So.. I finally got my shipment from Anderson Pens for restoring my little Wearever and everything went great! I put a new sac on (which is watertight) and put a new j-bar in (40mm) but since they didn’t have talc in stock I ordered it from a separate place, and it is due to arrive soon. Anyway, so as I was moving the barrel with the j-bar, I dropped it, and the j-bar moved a little bit further back (I didn’t know it could, I pushed it back as far as I could) leaving me not able to pull it out with the hemostat. Long story short, I gave it somebody who, despite me telling them explicitly severa
  7. Hi, my name is Aidan. I've been collecting vintage fountain pens since September and now have 6 of them. I would love to make the leap into restoration, but don't know how.... The tools involved, many steps, and just the pen to start off with overwhelm me. If anyone can provide me with the information to start, it would be much appreciated!

  20. My collection is still quite small. But I have some more vintage pencils on order. And my nightstand drawer and the closet shelf are getting to be too messy (and potentially damage-worthy on the pencils). I can't put them all into coffee mugs on my desk. I already have three mugs jam-packed with pencils and other writing utensils! I can't afford to do what I would like, which is to buy half a dozen Musgrave cedar boxes. So, what do you lot do? I am considering getting a few of these Container Store pencil boxes, for starters. https://www.containerstore.com/s/multisnap-office-storage-boxes
  21. I just impulsively got my first vintage pen, as well as my first pen needing restoration, at an antique store a few hours ago. But, I have absolutely no clue how to restore it. When I opened it, the sac was absolutely dust and the metal pressure bar fell out in two pieces. I expected the sac to be destroyed, but not the pressure bar! So, could anyone please make a step-by-step instructions for how to restore it, as well as what I will need and where to buy it? It would be much appreciated! Thank you!
  22. I have enjoyed the heck out of the Parker thread. And since I have a couple of nice Sheaffers scheduled to arrive as soon as Monday, I thought I would start this topic up. So, what Sheaffers have you added to the fold of late? Modern, vintage, rare, easy-to-find. All are welcome in this general discussion thread. Bring photos when you can!

  24. I recently had the good fortune of running into a second Pelikan D.R.G.M. stamped leather pouch for two pens, most likely from 1930s-1940s. As I call it I got it for a song (15€ with shipping and with a no name fountain pen included) so it is currently on its way to me from Germany. The pouch itself is made of four pieces, black leather on the top and bottom with a liner of red leather running in between, and a zipper with red textile backing running on top. The back piece is stamped in the center with Pelikan D.R.G.M. It fits a 100, 100N and even a 400 with a matching
  25. Hi! I have a nib that came in sad straits - bent, crossed, in a cracked and chipped section and sans cap, but I have the chunky 1.4 mm italic up and running again and would love some advice on finding it a new home, vintage or modern. It looks almost the same diameter as an esterbrook nib, but those nib units are ridiculously fragile and I don’t have one to spare. Any advice on swapping a size 3? It is currently the ugliest duckling, with a baby-poop brown body, tape on the section and barrel and a horrific donor cap from a wearever that gives it long-short proportions, but it writ
