Signum Nova Review


Recommended Posts

I was planning to write a review of my now 3 week old Signum Nova. However, I loaned it to a friend of mine and he reviewed it on his blog.

I certainly could not do a better review, so I'm posting it here.




What i can do, is tell you that I like the pen so well that i have ordered 2 more Signum pens with 18k nibs. Another Nova with a F nib and a Carene with a M nib.

I only have one Signum pen, a Orione, I believe. It is a beautiful "golden" colored resin, piston filler with a very forgiving & pleasant nib, despite being marked as a "M" only on the side of the cap band. It was purchased from Chatterley Pens ,offered as NOS & has remained a happy experience since purchase. I probably don't use it as much as other pens because of the piston filler's mechanism which requires more maintenance between different fills of ink. It is filled @ the moment with the Indian made, Krishna's Gold Rush ink & I was happy to bring it back into rotation. I just have never seen very many Signum pens offered for sale.

Using a Signum Orione Red Fine (steel nib). Nice dry writer, not a gusher like the Visconti Arc beside it. Does not have problems with the inks I fill it with. Wrote right out of the box no tuning required.


Not easy to find the pen in North America (Canada for darn sure), under rated writer. Would purchase another no hesitations.

      @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.
