  1. Hello there, this is my first post here. Currently I'm using the decimo and pro gear slim the most and I enjoyed both metal and resin pens. But I wonder are there any good wooden pens? I would like to have one as I like the touch of wood. I have seen pilot custom maple and sailor precious wood, but are there any more choices? I know wooden pens are not a common choice, but there should be some more. I don't have much budget, so 300usd is maximum and I would like a gold nib. Thank you so much!
  2. I do not know if SYAHI pens is still operating but they make beautiful wooden pens. There is also Lotus Shikhar in Sandalwood and I know Lotus also makes sandalwood pens in other models. It will be great if there is someone like Ryan Krusac in India, who makes pens in different types of woods.

    Delta Magnifica Amalfi

    This is my first review, so if you can think of any part of the pen I did not cover then please ask questions below. This is the beautiful Magnifica Amalfi from Delta. The pen has a 14k extra-fine nib and comes with a gorgeous olive wood barrel with prominent grain. The rest of the pen is constructed from a variety of resins: two shades of blue, white, and red. 18k plating trims the pen. The filling mechanism is a captured converter - one which is highly efficient and takes ink all the way up to the seal. Fond, as Delta are, of basing their pens on locations and features of landscape
  4. Hey guys! During my recent travels to Japan, i found a unique wooden fountain pen case from Storio. I'd never heard of the brand before but the moment i saw the case i fell in love with the way it looked and felt, so I just had to get one! I thought I'd just shed some light on this relatively unknown brand, as i think this case is beautiful and worth every penny. It looks professional and sleek/ stealthy, yet is interesting enough to get anyone who lays eyes on it to start a conversation about it! If you guys are interested, i made a video review about it! Theres also a link to where to get
  5. Has anyone tried one of these Vindolanda pens made from 2000 year old oak dug up at the archaeological site in northeast England? I think its a cartridge converter pen. https://www.vindolanda.com/shop/vindolanda-wood-ink-pen From a Reddit post I found it looks like a F/M-ish nib. https://www.reddit.com/r/fountainpens/comments/csjvti/my_first_fountain_pen_made_by_david_wayper_out_of/

  7. I finally took the plunge finally and bought an Izumo (Tagayasan) after going through some lovely reviews from my fellow fpners. I could not find a review of the matte version at fpn before buying this. Here is also a link to my blog with some more pics: Platinum Izumo Tagayasan - Matte Review The Izumo series was launched in 2010 to celebrate the birthplace of Platinum’s founder Shunichi Nakata. The Nakata surname of course reflects in all Nakaya nibs. Coming to Izumo, the Izumo province is located in the eastern coast of Japan and is famous for its political history as well as ma
  8. GvFC Platino intuition has 3 colour option, sure Ebony and Grendilla are both great, but I really like the Pernambuco wood. By the time I spend on trying to buy it from internet, I realize its not an easy task. And my friend tells me that Pernambuco product has been stopped. So here comes some question: 1. Is Pernambuco really out of the production line? 2. If its true, is it because shortage of material or quality control issue? 3. 😂😂Last but not least, whats the fair price of Pernambuco now?😍😍

    Syahi Pens-India

    Hello FPN! This is only me second FPN post, so I am going to reintroduce myself- My name is Sanay Shah, and I am a 21 year old mechanical engineer and the co founder of a brand called Syahi, that handcrafts wooden fountain pens(from scratch-these are NOT kit pens. The brass parts, section, rings etc are all made in house). We are only a year old, and have released a few models in this year, taking feedback from customers each time and implementing the same. We have now arrived at a few models that we are very excited about.. there are no pictures anywhere though-they will be shown at the DC

    A New Pen From India-Syahi

    Hello! My name is Sanay Shah, and I am the co founder of a brand called Syahi(urdu for 'ink') based out of Bombay, India. We handcraft pens using exotic hardwoods that have been seasoned for years at end. We haven't really launched yet-the past year, we made a bunch of pens, got feedback from our customers, and are trying to incorporate it in our new models. We will (hopefully) be launching at the DC Pen Supershow this year! We have been asked to make pens in acrylic etc but in the near future, we only see ourselves making wooden pens. Being a natural material, there are so many nuances

    Sec Magia

    My first italian fountain pen - the SEC Magia (magic), that wood artist Stefano Costatini has made for me: It is made of rosewood that has been specially treated so that ink and sweat cannot harm it . The metal parts of the pen are from sterling silver and goldplated. They are also made at Stefano`s workshop. The Magia sports a well-tuned, flexible 18 Karat gold nib from Bock in Heidelberg, Germany. It is mounted on a Bock #6 inkfeed that is screwed-in, so that the nib unit can be exchanged easily. The Magia works with a standard converter. You can also use cartridges. The meta

Interestingly, the Staedtler Foundation owns all shares of the Staedtler Group since 1997.

  14. I've recently added a Moonman M1 in brass and Tiger wood to my collection and am glad I did. The pen was was about $12 on Taobao. The pen is relatively long and slim. The section doesn't taper much at all. The cap takes about 3 turns to remove. The cap could post, I suppose, but the threads would likely tear up the wood and severely mess up the balance. Moonman M1 Dimensions 13.5cm / 13cm capped / uncapped 26.2g / 16.7g capped / uncapped 8mm section diameter 12mm barrel diameter It uses the same screw-in nib unit the Delike Alpha and New Moon 2 so if you have any of those pens, you ca

    Japanese Pen Brag Page

    Greetings all, Do we have a "Japanese pen brag page" , like the "What Parker are you using this day?" page or the Pelikan "Whats the most recent addition to the flock?" page. A interesting brag page is the "Whats the most recent MB purchase?" These pages allow us to share our enthusiasm, joy and pride with a community that appreciates and supports and even encourages this compulsive behavior. Pens need not be exotic or expensive, pictures are whatever can be achieves with what at hand. And the reason I ask...... I just adopted this Sailor Denshiro and wanted to share this beautiful pen w
  16. I found this artist's case for paints, brushes and other materials in a Japanese surplus store, and decided to convert it into another case for pens. Some of you will recall that I turned a similar case (a larger one) into a case for pens five years ago: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8224/8443280687_ab69f77bb1_z.jpg http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8355/8443285285_663d0c565e_z.jpg http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8512/8506094988_aebae6ea7e_z.jpg This was the case I used this time--older and narrower: Got some help from a handyman who varnished the case and installed the dividers (leftovers from

    New Desiderata Pen…For Real.

    Hello Everyone, I don't announce this kind of thing very much, but I wanted to share it with you kind people because this is one of my favorite places to go on the internet, and the FPN community is what makes it so for me. I am coming out with my latest production pens since the Icarus. I am very pleased with how they both are coming out. Those of you who know me personally know that I am not very easily pleased. It's been a long time since I used a pen that felt as comfortable as these. 1: As some of you know, I love wood. I think it's beautiful, has an unsurpassed feel, and makes an
  18. I just picked up a new Montegrappa Fortuna Heartwood in teak the other day from an authorized dealer. I received the pen and it looked fine on the initial inspection but after looking at the body under mild magnification, I can see several cracks, about 3, in the pen body lengthwise starting at the metal insert where the cap threads too. These look to be all the way through the body. After seeing the cracks location under magnification, I can spot them easily without magnification now. Is this acceptable for a new pen? I have 2 Omas rosewood pens without cracks and also another Montegrapp
  19. Hello, One of my acquaintances will be in Japan in the next couple of months and has very kindly offered to bring back a small package for me. As part of this package, I was looking to buy a Japanese FP that is challenging to get in India. We either have to buy it from online sources) from Japan (Engeika, Rakuten, direct seller, etc.) or ship it from US/UK or buy it at a premium in India. In all three cases, we end up paying customs duty and/or shipping costs which make the pens anywhere between 10%-30% more expensive. I thought this would be a good opportunity to buy a pen from Japan for my
  20. Hello, penfolks! This review will be of limited use, as a. the pen in question is brand-new to me at the time of this writing and therefore still suffused with new-purchase glow; b. I’m writing with it as regularly as I can, but I’m still only a couple of fills in, which means I haven’t had too much opportunity to get to know it; and c. my cellphone photography skills leave something to be desired, but I nonetheless took lots of pictures that are eating up your bandwidth as you read this. All caveats aside, I was itching for more reviews to read while I waited for my Pilot Custom Ichii to ar

After 13 months my Hakase is finally here! Since I ordered it last December, I've been anxiously awaiting this little ebonite barrel with a cocobolo shell. My model is called CW15C, which stands for cocobolo wood, large size nib, flat-top and solid 14kt pyramid barrel stopper band (no plating here!) For those unfamiliar with Hakase, I'd highly recommend watching the Masters of Fountain Pen series video on Haru

    Omas - Which Would You Send Back ?

    A bunch of Omas that were offered at significantly (IMHO of course) reduced prices, have landed on my desk. I can afford to keep 3, so the rest would need to go back. The wish, of course is to keep all of them, but my banker vehemently disagrees. Do note that all of them were offered around the same price around 375 Euro equivalent, except for the c/c filler which is reduced further. All of them new/un-used/un-inked The question is : Which of these would you send back and why #1 Paragon - Art Deco Limited Edition - Piston fill - Gold Trim - Stub #2 Paragon - Art Deco Limited Edition - Pist
  24. Hello Fellow Members! Attached are photos of custom pens created by master pen maker, Bill Scharinger, of BJ's Crafts. They have a 6 mm, JoWo nib/feeder. The woods incorporated are of premium quality, and for this project we selected Quilted Sapele and Bethlehem Olive Wood. The beauty and depth of the wood cannot be appreciated in a photo, but are most evident when held in the hand. Also available are striking acrylic/resin pens. People who purchased after I referred them to Bill have been overwhelmingly satisfied. Like me, they are enjoying these custom-made (not mass-produced) writing
