Mysterious Pen Identification

Recommended Posts

So looking for some help, folks. I got this pen earlier because I loved the way it wrote, but unfortunately didn't have too much info on fountain pens when I bought it.

 

Some features: It has "Aristocrat" stamped on the side, that's essentially the only marking. It's a button filler with a small ink window towards the bottom, and doesn't hold much ink at all. The nib is 14K gold and stamped with "Warranted 14K 8." Semi-flex, goes from around a XF to M/B.

 

Thanks!

What does it say on the nib. On you picture there appears to be some kind of writing.

Looks like a button-filler to me, please say you're not turning it to fill.

 

With a name like that and a warranted point, it's probably one of the vast legion of forgotten smaller brands; you may know as much about it now as you ever will.

Oh, good heavens. He's got a blog now, too.

On the nib it says "Warranted." Underneath that, "14 K." And right under that is the number "8."

 

And yes sorry, button filler :P.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
