Identification Of A Congress Bulb Filler


AndrewJ

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I'm new to the FPN and to online forums - so if I'm in the wrong place with the wrong thread - sorry.

 

I've recently purchased a Congress bulb filler fountain pen. I've read several threads about their history - from what I've seen, no one seems to know very much about them. I have one piece of information to add, which I haven't seen mentioned anywhere else. On the clip, not only does it say "CONGRESS", but it also says "PATU". I've tried Google but that got me nowhere, apart from somewhere in Asia. Is it any help?

can you direct me to the threads about them.

A friend just sent me a Congress lever filler short pen for me to re sack.

I know it has a pressure fit section. Is it a knock out nib? A screw in?

I think I can just measure what size sack but if you know....

 

Thanks.

Newark Pen Company made a pen called "Congress" that looks suspiciously like an Ingersoll.

 

But for some reason, the brand Congress sounds like something that J Harris (Ambassador, Majestic, University) would have done.

      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
