Orange Fountain Pens

Recommended Posts

This is a bit of a strange request... Could somebody post pictures of really really cool looking orange fountain pens? (I tried looking up for them with not much results)

 

I just LOVE spending hours and hours (I know) just looking at pictures of fountain pens and drooling over them. I don't know what's up with my current obsession with orange fountain pens, but I would love to see some pictures (please include the pen names)

 

Thank you in advance!!!

The TWSBI Vac 700 is called amber, but I think it's pretty orange-y. Here's mine:

I have the orange Lamy Safari too, but I can't seem to find a picture. I'll try to snap one later. :thumbup:

 

I've actually been thinking about getting another orange pen. Maybe an Edison in orange ebonite. I love orange; reminds me of fall leaves. :)

Delta Dolce Vita (first photo) with second photo a pen made by Ken (Dr. Goretex), both of which I foolishly sold.

Jotting down first impressions:

 

  • It is substantial. It is almost 6" in length, and the acrylic is thick. Weight is similar to that of a MB146.
     
  • The bands are plastic, as are the threads. But, they are well-machined.The cap/section screw tightly onto/into the barrel. No wiggling. No gaps. The thinner bands are flush with the cap.
     
  • The orange acrylic is nice - bright, slightly translucent in places, and much as I detest the word, a bit shimmery.
     
  • It comes with a converter - friction fit, secure, above average capacity, with a ball inside to prevent tension.
     
  • The nib is large, like the rest. It is firm and fine, reasonably smooth out of the box. No skipping or other issues.

The Visconti Rembrandt I have is a beautiful, swirly orange. The photo I'm using (from Amazon) shows its shade more accurately than my cellphone pic:

Gsteer - that's a beautiful collection of orange pens.

 

How do you like the Ipsilon? I've had my eye on one for a while.

Fool me once, shame on you.

Fool me twice; damn

There goes that fox again.

Thanks :)

 

Guilty admission time - the Ipsilon is uninked. I picked it up last year when a UK vendor had a very nice sale on, and, apart from getting to Canada haven't used it as yet.

 

It'll be inked this year though as I'm 'finally' getting around to my Blue vs Orange pen / ink battle, so at that point they'll be a full review.

 

I'm getting better though, it's only one of two (I think!) uninked pens I've got.

Not the best picture, I'm afraid. But after I got rid of my TWSBI 540 Amber last week, this my my only orange pen.
