German Tintenkuli Rotring?



Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm am new to this forum.

I bought a Tintenkuli and would like some information on it. I have read a post from this website about the history of the pen, but would like to find some instructions. So far I have seen some pictures of the original instructions on eBay but they are in German. I am sure it is a piston driven pen becaus there is a twist knob at the end of the pen. How does that work? Where the ink go in through? The tip or just behind the tip?

Any info would help. Please point me in the rite direction.

I would appreciate it.

Thank you

The ink goes in just behind the cone that holds the writing tube. Bythe way, you can screw it out like a FP's nibunit for cleaning. In principle there is a thin wire inside the tube for supporting the cappilar effect for the inkflow toward the tip of the inktube. They write with no pressure when in good conition- in fact pressure can easily destroy the tube. You can fill it up like any pistonfiller.

 

There is a picture of the instruction sheet in more than one language in this old ebay auction

Scratchofapen, thank you.

That explains a lot. I wasn't dipping the pen in enough to get ink in it, since it pulls behind the cone, not the tip.

Thanks again

Hi there,

 

I am looking to purchase a Tintenkuli- remake in 1998 by Visconti the limited edition. Does any one have an idea where I would get one. Appreciate your reply- Keith

Stylographic pens were the forerunners of fountain pens, available at least in the 1870's.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

Hello Ancient Artifact,

 

I owned a Tintekuli (Tiku) - but lost it. Therefore intend to buy one. Do you suggest a place that I can buy a Tintenkuli.I heard there was a remake by Visconti in 1998 limited edition.

 

thanks

      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.
