WEAREVER PATENTS

Recommended Posts

I hope that you are not tired by my patents postings. Hopefully they will be few of you that remain interested :)

The surprise today is the list of patents by Wearever. Yes that Wearever, the pariah of the fountain pen word. Here is the list. Surprise surprise 59 patents. Not only the number is impressive but the list gives us a rough idea of when they started and when they folded. Note that some of the last few patents are for markers and ball points. I hope you enjoy it.

Please note that the web site is down everyday from 23:00 to 23:15 EST for maintainance.

Antonios,

 

I will never tire of this information. I really appreciate your posts. Thank you for sharing all this wonderful, obscure information.

Dear Antoniosz;

 

Thank you for posting the information on the Wearever fountain pen.

 

I have one that is in sad shape and though the body isn't cracked it has been abused, scratches on the barrel, nib broken, metal parts rusted-- but; despite all it really was a lovely pen at one time. The one I have is possibly the Deluxe --green marble with red flakes and a red on the top, like a button.

 

Might have to carry it down to a pen show and let the experts take a peek.

 

Respectfully,

Maria

Wearever, a remarkable company really and much overlooked especially in the use of plastics ( both injection moulding and patterns). Quality...no....cheap...yes...basic pens made to meet the market and price point ...probably one of the USs biggest selling pen manufacturers and one of the longest lasting as well!! Do I collect them...no...but from a historical point I'm actually very impressed by their achievments.

 

Regards

Hugh

I have always felt that Wearever made some of the more unique nibs. Maybe not always the best but unique. Look at the Deluxe nib which I have a couple of. Another one is the later nib that has the metal "thingy" over the split of the tines. I have one at home and pictures but I am at work but the link to my Flikr site has it there.

 

Thanks antoniosz.

EventHorizon, I did truly enjoy your pen pictures on your Flikr site. Thank you for making them available.

There's also this one, by David Kahn for a "fountain pen and pencil clip". It's how I identified one of my pens -- it sure looked like a 30's Wearever, but the patent # is the only imprint on it.

Dear Antonio,

 

Just read, and copied, your list of patents attributed to David A Kahn and associates. Thank you so much! How did you assemble all that information? If you have any other information, I would love to see it. Best, David Silber, noyesville pens (noyesville@peoplepc.com)

Just identified my Wearever's clip with "Writing instrument clip with interchangeable initials" - patent text at http://www.freepatentsonline.com/2094796.pdf. Strange to see the patent sketches identical to the item in my hand. Many thanks for adding to my pleasure in ownership.

 

Now all I have to find out who SGB was (or is) ...

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese
    • Texas42
      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d
    • A Smug Dill
      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
