~ Dear Shiraboshi:


What exactly do you plan to buy in 2024?

That's six years later. Will something special be offered for sale in 2024?

Thank you very much.

Tom K.


Tom, he means the 100th Meisterstuck anniversary 149. I know I'm waiting for that too!


But he is likely not going to keep that promise -- since the 149 flex needs to be updated into this table as well! What a surprise.

Does anyone know of any experiment 149 feeds that have made it into circulation? I still have yet to see a nib like the one on mine. I know it is early 90s based on all the other parts and the general appearance of the feed. But I have yet to see a feed with a hole through the underside of the nib. The nib itself is on the flexy side. I once cleaned the pen and made sure the hole was cleaned and dried out. I placed it on the pen, filled it, dried out this hole once again, and it immediately filled with ink. This makes me think it is a hole used to help flow of ink for a flexy nib.

hi !



Thank you for information.

Now, the table frame is full and the layout is under consideration.

Updates after 2015 are still to come.

Single information can be uploaded first.


Mr.Tom k

Maybe the next update will be around 2024-2025.

I think other parts have changed.


Thank you.

Here is a little first-hand update about the ink-feeds in the 70s MB149s.


I have a 149 purchased as new from a stationery shop in 1974, which dates it to that year or earlier. I have been the only owner ever since. It had no major repairs or part replacements for so far. However, some components of the pen dont quite fit into the trends diagram:


1. Its split-feed (or two-part-feed), marked in the diagram as B-6, reportedly introduced in the late seventies, must have been put into production few years earlier. Else it would not have been installed in pens sold by 1974.


2. Manufacturing of the friction-fit piston mechanism marked in the diagram as F-2 reportedly manufactured between 62 and 72 might have also extended later into the seventies.


3. Its nib is 18-ct-tri-color, marked as A-3.


This dates the pen most likely around 1972, which means that split-feed (two-part-feed) could have been introduced as early as 1972.


Hope this update can help.

      @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.
