Which Conway Stewart Are You Using Today?



Recommended Posts

An early 1930's (flat peak & ball clip) 475 green marble with black veins bought at the London Pen Show yesterday. Has a fine nib which is perfect for the form filling I'm doing at the moment.

 

I also bought a similar black Conway which on closer inspection is a Svanstrom So Popular no.1.

Sounds like you had a good show. Peter.

 

Good score with the Svanstrom. Any chance of some piccies?

Those were just the Conway Stewarts. I was even more happy with the others!

 

What can possibly be better than a green marble 475? :D

 

Do tell.

An onyx button fill Unique, an Olsen ladies Duofold, a massive (149 mm) Acca, a Duovac and olive ripple Waterman. Less better were a brown Unique and nos. grey Summit 160.

So close! --Winston, black, with Diamine Cult Pens Deep Dark Purple--rich and distinctive, but suitable for work too.

A Montague with ESSRI and a 100 (2012 reissue) with Super Quink Blue-Black Solv-X. Two new CS that are actually quite good. shame about the company.

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

 

Beautiful, that's my favorite Conway Stewart color. I would love to have a 100 in Poinsettia--have they all been sold? What are the chances of finding one these days?

I have not seen any offered for sale, certainly not new. It's been 5 years, that stock which was limited to begin with is long gone. Might find it occasional on the secondary market, but that's going to be very hoit or miss. And I would not mind owning one as well.

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

That's too bad. :( I looked for the closest possible colors to it since I noticed that some of the names have changed over the years. A less vivid variant--'Exmoor'--comes close, according to online images, but none are offered in the 100 version. Well I guess we'll have to keep an eye out for one. Let's see how long it takes to find it...
