Hello guys,

 

This is my first time here at FPN. Just entered this fountain pen world a few months ago. I'm looking for a repair shop and vintage fountain pen shop in Bangkok, Thailand.

 

 

Thanks a lot.

Thanks a lot for your reply.

I checked the one at Forturne Rama9. It is the second hand store. Many Dupont, Montblanc, Parker. The prices are quite high compared to what i have seen on ebay. Many of Parker 51, if anybody s interested.

Were the prices you saw written on tags, or were they quoted to you by the vendor? If quoted, I would think you have plenty of room to negotiate a lower price. Even if tagged, since it is a second hand store, the price is what someone will pay against what the vendor will accept. If you have not done so already, read up on haggling in Thailand. If possible, take a local friend with you to do the negotiation. Just have a price you will pay in mind and be sure to purchase the pen once the vendor agrees to your haggled price.

 

Remember, the whole point is to make both buyer and seller happy, not to buy something under the seller's cost or to create bad feelings. Even if you do not agree to a price and the deal falls through or you never go back to this vendor, treat the whole process as establishing a long term and respectful relationship that will benefit you both. Smile and have fun.

That's a really good advice. Thank you so much. I was looking for Vintage Wahl or Waterman, they didn't have many though.

      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
