Which Conway Stewart Are You Using Today?



Recommended Posts

Just inked up a 58 series pen bought new in 2010. The colour is #620 Coral Green.

It's a CC filler, with a Medium nib, is inked with Blackstone Black Stump, and writes very nicely.

I love my stub Churchill lever filler! I walked into World Lux in Seattle and asked about stubs, and the wonderful staff introduced us and we fell in love.

 

When the lever fell off, they took care of it, and more, at new charge.

 

Now Churchill has been put aside, with the lever lying in the velvet slot along side.

 

And World Lux is sadly gone.

 

But Churchill is known for comebacks !

 

Any suggestions?

 

Cheers,

Unusually, I have a ball pen today, as part of my famous five EDC - I'll do a separate post on that little project, stay posted!

 

But this isn't just any old jotter (sorry Parker fans!) - A green and gold Conway Stewart 90 from the early 1960s.

 

As readers of my post about the blue #90 know, this was C.S's first and (in my opinion) most successful model of ball point pen.

 

I just need a pink and gold one now to complete the set! - unless they did a black one?

 

Some little gems out there if you're lucky!

I'd been wanting a CS SCRIBE for some time, so was delighted to pick up this blue marbled 336, with the generous 3B nib.

 

It does not disappoint. The nib sails through all the shades of flex, or can be used as a straightforward everyday writer - and it just keeps laying down ink - these really are writers' pens! I've been a bit greedy and fitted a size 17 sac into it, so I have a bath-tub full of ink ready for my every need.

 

It's still relatively new to me, but has already made its way into my daily carry and is getting a lot of use!

 

Thanks.

Inked with J. Herbin Eclat de Saphir, a #58 with matching grey hatch #33 pencil.

 

And what a nice inscription on the lid too!

 

Anyone else with a C.S set they want to share?

I recently acquired a Conway Stewart 16 Blue Flame with silver trim. It's inked with Parker blue ink. It's a good companion to my CS 17 in gold trim which I have had for a while. The casein material of these pens is beautiful but very fragile. Unfortunately I damaged my CS 17 unknowingly when I got it by soaking it in water; but I was able to mostly fix the damage - though it still has a scar. Now I know better.

A beautiful set, and a cautionary tale we can all learn from. Thanks for sharing. :thumbup:

Some terrific materials out there make no mistake. Nice to see a doppelgander malcolmH!

 

I thought I'd share two oddities today, a #1200 (with the nib from the C.S advert it seems!) and a #60 Executive in burgundy hatch, with Mr Thompson's engraving it seems!

 

Take a look at the imprint of the #60's nib (Architect point) - anyone seen another?

Superb. Can't think that I've ever seen these nibs before.

 

How did you come across them?
