What Pen Did I Just Buy?

Recommended Posts

I just bought a fountain pen on eBay but neither I nor the seller know what brand it belongs to. All I know is that it is a rather old piston filler with a 14K Gold plated nib (inprinted on the nib as well).

Does anyone have any ideas?

I'd guess an untraceable German piston filler. I have seen a few in my time. How much did you pay for it?

I have to agree with fpSuperstar, there seems to be an awful lot of anonymous German FPs, I've owned a few, some have appeared on this Forum and despite a lot of head scratching never managed to identify a single one. I'm looking at one now, has a MB nib, but the pen is certainly one of these 'couldbethiscouldbethat' pens

 

But for only 8 Euros!

Probably impossible to know who the manufacturer was without some kind of marking. FWIW, I think there were a lot of 3rd tier German pen companies who made no-name pens for stationary shops (kind of like a store's own 'private label' goods today)...this is probably one of them.

 

That said, it's how the pen writes that's important, not necessarily who manufactured it...

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
