Kultur Colors, 62 Of Them

Recommended Posts

It's been a couple of years since I've found a Kultur color I didn't already have. So I figure I have almost all, if not all.

I don't include post production advertising or printing. And I didn't include the Eiffel Tower because I've only ever seen a ballpoint.

I did include the Croft, Harley, and 2000 pens because they were Waterman Kultur models.

 

So below are pictures of the 62 distinct colors. If you know of more feel free to comment. But I might just cover my eyes to avoid the knowledge.

 

4 Croft and 6 Harley:

Didn't know there were 6 Harleys from this version.

 

Ofcourse there are also the versions with the exterior embellished with motor parts.

AFAIK these, too, are based on the Kultur.

Woah, all of these are pretty. Some of them look like real beauties to me.

 

Remind me again why they discontinued this model? Wouldn't it be the perfect competitor to Lamy Safari?

There's the Horizon model. They use the same nib, but a different barrel and cap featuring a cylinder and pushrods. The Horizon comes in a fuel tank case.

The other I think is the Combustion. They use an Expert II nib and feature something like a front fork. The Combustion comes in a head light case.

 

Common sense makes me think the Combustion is the cylinder and pushrod model and Horizon would have the suspension and headlight, but I think I have it right that the names came confused from Waterman.

 

Anyway, neither model is a Kultur. The Kultur Harley is called the Freewheel.

Do you have the Y2K pen (2000 on the cap)?

Well, this was an education!

 

I only have my clear one, but it is the pen I have my company's color in, so I use it every day.

 

Here's a question: do these all have the same problem my Kultur does of drying out if not used at least once a day, preferably twice?

A definite Yes.

A definite Yes.

 

Do you think this has anything to do with the clip on the Kultur and on the Phileas? I don't think it is the nib, because an 18K nib from one of the other Watermans that fit right onto the Phileas dried up the same way.

Beautiful pens. For those who experience drying out, I accidentally found that a wetter ink, such as Sailor dark blue or purple, will keep the moist at least overnight.

      @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

      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.
