What Is Your Opinion Of The Mb 146 Doue 75Th Rose Gold?



dmvara

Recommended Posts

So I am also looking for a 146 limited rose gold doue, but was curious to see what the more astute fp aficionados think of this pen. Is is overkill having a silver cap over a resin body? I would think the resin body is easier to write with as opposed to an all silver body which i have found to be WAY TOO expensive for my taste. :yikes:

Even if I could throw down that kind of bling, I think I would shoot myself before I did. Opinions on the Doue would be appreciated. Is it overkill and I should just stick with an all resin body? I know to each his/her own, but it never hurts to get a few opinions. Thanks!

 

:D

Not a rose gold Doue, but I really like my 146 Doue. Sterling over resin isn't overkill to me....

You are correct! Beautiful! :yikes:

I love the look of the doue, but I'm partial being the owner of a 162 75th anniversary roller ball with the sterling silver cap and rose gold trim. Fact is however that the plain resin versions are much more sought after and retain better resale value. So if it's an investment your after I'd advice against it. If not, buy whatever sings to you. The pen is stunning, and contrary to it's full resin counterpart there are still a few available on the market at a reasonable price.

 

I'm including a link that shows the full range of pens to wetten your appetite.

Good luck with the hunt.

The sterling silver cap may need more maintenance for it to remain "clean" and shiny. Sterling tends to stain too. On the looks department, having a silver on black body tends to make the MB look a little less "classier" IMO. I would personally go for an all black resin. If you're really into sterling, might wanna go for the solitaire. But that's just my opinion.

Yea, I guess I see your point. Either all resin or all silver in my opinion. Just makes sense.

Not a fan of any of the Doues. I get the idea, but I like the cap and body to be the same material.

 

Maybe old fashioned of me, but I'd be going for all resin or all silver (or whichever material you're fancing)

 

Each to their own, though.

 

Good luck.

Thank you and yes I agree with you after giving it some thought. A uniform body of resin or of silver is much more appealing.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
