Three currently in rotation - my modern CS100 in black with the Simpole overlay capband (Diamine Onyx), CS206 with Diamine Onyx and a CS27 with Diamine Midnight. The two vintage pens have stub nibs (the 296 has the broadest stub I have ever met) and the CS100 has an IB.

Today was a Wellington in Black Whirl, Medium nib, filled with Diamine Delamere Green. Man, that pen is a juicy writer! I have to be very careful of my hand position because all that ink takes a long time to dry. :D

Vintage 58 in marbled blue, using Akkerman Shocking Blue (which I don't, frankly, find shocking!). Wonderful pen from the 1950's.

RolHls-RHavinoyce Commissions Pen Set By Conway Stewart

Published: 29th June 2005

Rolls-Royce Phantom

 

Rolls-Royce has commissioned Conway Stewart to produce 25 writing instrument sets to mark the 80th anniversary of the Rolls-Royce Phantom. Each set will be housed in a hand-crafted case of aluminium and leather, made in the Rolls-Royce workshops at Goodwood. Each one will be fitted into the glove box of one of 25 special Phantoms, built to commemorate the anniversary.

The set will comprise three items - a Duro-style fountain pen, ballpoint pen and propelling pencil. Originally designed in the mid 1920's - like the first Phantom - the Duro pen was widely acclaimed for its quality and style. It was therefore judged entirely fitting to be included in the specification of this car.

The original Phantom was launched in the summer of 1925 and soon became an iconic motor car. It was followed by the Phantom II in 1929 and the Phantom III in 1936. The name returned to the line up after the war in 1950 with the Phantom IV, followed by the Phantoms V and VI, the latter being produced until the early 1990s. Then in 2003 the Phantom name was chosen for the all-new motor car, built at a new manufacturing plant in Goodwood under the ownership of BMW Group. The black and silver exterior of the limited edition Phantom echoes the colour scheme of the early 1920 models.

Conway Stewart is one of the great English pen makers. Thomas Garner and Frank Jarvis started the company in 1905.

 

 

 

Having problems with transferring photos at moment (don't know why as I have had no trouble before). Above is the write up from CS will send pictures as soon problems sorted.

I don't normally contribute to threads like this but the pen I'm currently using is on its 3rd or 4th consecutive fill and that's unusual for me (I usually change pens when the one I'm using empties). The pen is a:

 

100 Series Poinsettia with fine nib, number 18 of 50.

 

It was a birthday present to myself a few years ago. I don't have a photo of the actual pen but here's a catalogue shot:

With the recent sad demise of Conway Stewart I'm going to carry on with this for a while in recognition of the fabulous pens they produced. It's also prompted me to get some of my vintage Conways out, which cannot be a bad thing.

Thank you for posting that picture Martin, it helped me to identify a pen I bought new from Gary at FG Thomas, mine has stayed in its box but I think I even bought a converter from you to fit the pen. I must give it a try.

Thanks Matlock.

Sleek, black and silver, simple but very elegant.

I suppose the silver is warm to the touch?

Is the angel on the cap?

Warm to the touch but VERY heavy. Sorry no angel on the cap, just the RR logo. Unfortunately I seem to have mislaid the car that went with the pen :(.

That's a real beauty. In fact that's the pen that birthed my desire to own a 100. Enjoy.

I went to our local Montbland boutique to buy some ink yesterday, and I thought I'd take the opportunity to also get a bottle of this year's special edition Daniel Defoe ink, Palm Green. I think it suits this pen perfectly. :wub:

Looks very nice indeed!

 

I myself own a Churchill Classic Brown, and I love it.

The nib, the weight, the warm color.
