My wife got these as a gift from work and has received nice pens before including a Montblanc Boehme fp. The pens and the case are real wood but there isnt an identifying mark anywhere. Although there is a good chance these are generic gift pens I wanted to double check in the event someone recognizes them. TIA
Hello to everybody, I'd like to introduce you my Caran d'Ache Varius Metwood that I have had for three years. The body of the fountain pen is rosewood, while the cap is silver plating with rhodium-coating. This is a detail in the cap with the symbol of the brand. Nib B of gold of 18 k with rhodium. The filling system is either by cartouche or converter. Right now, it is filled with a Caran d'Ache ink named Storm. It writes pretty smoothly, and the nib is wet. Nevertheless, there is no line varation because the nib is stiff. The paper is Kimberly Classic of 90 gr. Greetings!
Storia is a new brand that I recently added in my website. It's a small company, located in Bolzano, the furthest north of Italy, where few skilled artisans work with special woods and produce beautiful pens.

Fountain pens and rollerballs. I published an article in my Blog, with an interview to Mr. Testa, owner, designer, artisan: "If it’s true we write to remember, to prevent time to blur our memories, it’s also true the tool we use for writing can be itself an object belonging to history. Storia’s pens surely are. Storia is a company based in Bolzano, northern Italy, founded by a brave entrepreneur of Rome, Federico Testa. He designs and handcrafts his pens by himself, producing them in precious woods and metals: “Jewels for writing,” as he describes them. Indeed, there is much to be told about them. (...) “Each of our pens is a unique and irreproducible object – Federico Testa explains -: the model can be the same in design, but it will always have its unique features. We are talking of handcrafted pens, made out of precious raw woods, chosen for their peculiar features of tenderness and resistance". Read more >>>
plumon posted a topic in Japan - AsiaI have seen some Sailor and Pilot "precious wood" pens that look very appealing. Are they especially fragile? Is the finish hardy? Are they worth buying? On the other hand, can they be polished? I've seen them with glossy and matte finishes and wonder if it's just the photo that make them look like that. Is it a good idea to put some oil on the finish, like you would on other woods? Thanks, Plumon
