A nice one.

I have been "eyeing" this pen for a long time. Last week, patience was rewarded. A nice example with no lever was won on the bay for the price of 4 venti cappucinos. It arrived today. It sports now a new lever (non-original but I dont care for now), and a silicone sac and the #3 Diamond Point nib is flexing its tines. It will be one of my pens during Christmas travel.

 

This is a "Long and Short" Diamond Point. 1930-35 according to the blue book. Tres cool, as the cap essentially covers the whole barrel when it is closed /:) If you have any info about other available colors etc. please share it here.

Woo! :drool:

 

By "diamond point", does it mean that it has diamond as its tipping on the nib :o ?

Kissing, back to school! Would a crystal of pure carbon survive an (futile) attempt to solder it to a metal tine? It would rather burn to CO2 ...

And glueing it to tines doesn't sound very stable.

Neat, Antonios! My friend Bruno is making me one of his "Long Short" pens, which are a homage to your Diamond Point Long and Short. I had never seen the original before today, thanks!

 

Photo of my mostly completed pen below--Bruno's version comes with a base! Mine is the ivory casein to the left--it will be a bulb filler rather than a lever filler.

Very nice.

 

I have a Diamond point kicking around, the lever may fit your pen??

 

It is a black version of the pictured pen.

Dan, Bruno's base is very smart :) In fact it was a prior discussion of his pens that put me in the path for the Long and Short.

 

Jay, the lever in your pen is probably larger. The one I put fits and works OK.

I have never seen what the "true" lever looks in the original pen.

Is it something like the round top with the DPP inscription that we see in the ringtops, or is it something like in other pens like this one that I reviewed some time ago.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
