It's not expensive, but it is my favorite orange pen

Orange is my favorite color. :wub:

I am happy to hear someone else loves Orange; I just received the new Kaweco Sport, NARANJA, that is made exclusively for the Spanish market. It is a wonderfully bright little pocket pen & a nice addition to the elusive Orange pen market. I have an Indian ink, KRISHNA's Chandon, in mine & it surely brightens my day.

Parker Big Red ball pen.

If you want a fountain pen, you can frankenpen it by replacing the section with the section/nib of I think a Cross Apogee.

Gold Nib will be $100 more...

 

The Orange Aero can be purchased for $179.99 @federalistpens (Steel Nib)

I wish Pelikan would do some of the M300 colours in an M400 - that orange, the ruby red... the 3's are just too tiny for me.

It would be great. I would like to have an orange M600. M400 is very nice, but somehow my small hands prefer the M600.

I think it's not within OP's budget?

 

quote: Budget is $100-150, but if you have a pricier pen in mind, by all means let me know.

 

The cartridge is a lot less expensive than the piston filler model. I recall it wasn't more than that with a decent discount from a big FP seller on ebay??

There's an orange Visconti Rembrandt that should be within your range, if you can find one:

If you win the lottery, I'd recommend this beauty from Conid :lol: :

A couple of others I forgot before:

 

1. Bexley Corona - This one is a DuoFold clone and comes in either cartridge/converter or piston-filler models. It may be now discontinued but I'm sure there are some out there either NOS (new old stock) or used. The orange color, I think, was called Summer Sunset or something like that.

2. Bexley Deluxe flat-top pens of their early years (1994 to about 2000). These were made in either cartridge/converter fillers or button fillers. Very nice pens, if you can find one.

3. More current Bexley pens - many of these also were made in orange.

4. Conklin (modern, but pre-Yafa acquisition of the brand) Glider Chased pens. These were large flat-top pens made around 2004-5 or so. Not too costly used, if you can find the orange one. May take some tinkering to get them working, but once you do they are neat.

5. No specific brand or model, but if you look around you can usually find third-tier pens from the 1930's or 1940's in orange. I've seen many of these at pen shows and some of them look like they would be fun to repair and use. Usually relatively inexpensive, and kind of quaint.

 

That's today's brain-dump. I'll keep thinking. . .

Or ... an Indian ebonite pen in orange. Ranga have a duofold-inspired flat top that is rather lovely, though I don't know how ebonite will sit in the OP's collection. The orange ebonite is not as kick-ass bright as some of the acrylic pens in orange, more of an understated colour.

Too many pens, too little time!

I find this LE stunning. It is a Pelikan M320 in marbled orange.

 

Your photo wasn't coming through, so I thought I would post another. I have one of these--they are beautiful, but very hard to find. If Pelikan released this finish in an M600 size, they would sell as fast as they could be made.

Ah, that's weird. On my computer everything seems to be working just fine, I haven't seen this thread on any other device, though. At first I was receiving a 'you cannot post this file extension" message, but then it disappeared when I changed the first three pictures to links. Anyway, thanks for help. :)

 

You guys have some really good suggestions. I start to believe that I need a new orange pen.

I forgot - Did anyone mention the Conklin All American? It comes in an orange resin very similar to the Delta DV series. Not too pricey, and mine wrote just fine right out of the box.
