Good evening all. I got bit by the fountain pen bug a few months ago. To date, I've found two 51s, a 51 special, and a 25 in the wild. All of these are aeromatics. All but one was brought back to live in my kitchen. The other was restored and is my everyday pen.


I've also got two very old Underwoods under repair. If, anyone has information on the Underwood Company, I'd be very happy to hear it.


All the best,

Hi and welcome to FPN


You seem to like the older Parkers. Indeed much better than the modern ones.


I'm not familiar with Underwood. With that name I have typewriters in mind, but I may be incorrect.


Enjoy the forum





Edit: Indeed Underwood started as a supplier to Remington, also made typewriters under their own name.


And there is an Underwood of London, selling luxury goods, including some pens, but modern ones.


And have a look here:

Hi Bob,


You have come to the right place. There are some of the nicest, most helpful people. Go ahead, ask any questions you want but it helps if you use the search box to find out if it's already been asked and answered.


Still so much to learn and so many valuable resources.


BTW, check out the Boston Pen People and come on down to our meetings. Next one is January 25th, I think, at the Marriott in Newton.

Welcome, Bob !


The love of vintage Parker fountain pens is a natural evolution of intelligent, tasteful, beautiful people.


Try some Private Reserve DC Supershow Blue in your Parker 51.

Bitten by the FP bug. Well, no cure here I'm afraid. The prescription ?....further FP's, and watch the family grow.


Happy fountain penning.

Don't look down on someone, unless helping them up :D

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
