I'm happy to report that I'm using my Conway Stewart 57 again today. I took the feed and nib apart, did a minor reset of the feed, and put it all back together. So far, the ink is making it to the nib again. I'll be using this for a few days to be sure I have it right, and possibly tune the nib just a little.

Thank you, mallymal1! I love the photos of your collection.

 

Today I'm using my new Marlborough Vintage, F, with Pilot Take-sumi ink. I had some fun photographing it:

I'm happy to report that my CS 57 has been a reliable and smooth pen since realigning the feed. I really like this pen.

 

...I need to get more...

I don't have anything marked "Conway Stewart" - I was never a fan even as a schoolboy and I do not know why that was but it has stayed with me.

 

Meanwhile I do have this antique syringe filler which carries no name, but an expert tells me that it was most likely manufactured by Conway Stewart. I really like it!

Cob, I see you with the most amazing pens.

 

Very nice.

 

How does it write?

@ Cob: thank you.

 

You have a good hand, and I think that is a very nice flex nib there...
