Congratulations, they look very fine. Where and how did you find them? Any chance of pictures of nibs?

I especially like the Sheaffer...

Enjoy!

Thanks mhguda for your kind appreciation. I got these pens from the largest stationary whole-seller in karachi, who is also a very avid collector of fps ,and I have been buying pens from him for more than 30 years ,he showed me some old stuff and I picked up these ,and paid 50 dollars ,including a parker jotter and an extra refill!

Thanks dr saleem, they indeed look nice. You are fortunate with such an association!

The right Parker nib looks like a stub in the picture, or maybe an italic?

They look as if you'll enjoy them for many years to come.

:P That one in the middle looks similar-ish to this Ultra I have (~1958... I think it's a store brand that was imported from Italy)

They call that pattern crosshatch right?

That piston filler, which if true to form unscrews from the section, seems to be typical for that type of Italian pen. So my foundling which has it is probably also an Italian Parker lookalike, in this case a 51 lookalike. Alas, it is not anywhere in as handsome a state as this one...

      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.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
