Very nice!


All those 1009s in one place! They should be split up. I have room in my cabinet.

I am not allowed to sell on this site yet. I have not been an member long enough, nor do I have enough forums / threads started. Also yesterday I managed to get my wrist slapped by a moderator for answering a question honestly. That entire thread has since been totally removed.


Over next few days I will add more photos / threads on other pens that I have been gathering up over last 4 or 5 years in the course of my Charity Fundraising business. Sorry I am not allowed to give any info as to name of that business or its outlets. I am currently assisting 40+ charities across the UK.

Talking about selling here is a touchy subject. All pens I have gathered from my business activities over the last few years I have just been putting these in a box for my retirement fund. I have accumulated a few nice pens, Waterman, Cross, Parker, Sheaffer & Conway Stewarts to name but a few.


I laid my staff off last year and moved into semi-retirement, I now work a 3-4 day week aiming eventually to do 2-3 day week, this will allow my poor autistic / dislexic brain time to relax and unwind. I will never 100% retire. I have been looking for a platform / group where I may be able to pass on the better pens I have to people who will really appreciate them.


I still have a lot to learn about this site, must not break any more rules. This will also be my last post for now as I have now reached my maximum posting limit for 1st 24hrs on site.

      @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.
