I recently acquired this ST Dupont. Thing is I'm not sure what type or age it is. The nib is 18K - but I'm not sure whetehr it will take Parker or International standard cartridges. Thank you.

Thank you. I thought it was an Orpheo/Olympia.

 

have made the cartridge mistake before and it got very messy.

Sorry but I fear that is NOT an ST Dupont fountain pen. I certainly hope I am wrong but pretty sure it is a fake. The nib and section are wrong for an Olympio/Orpheo and the Fidelio only had 14 k nibs.

Is the nib magnetic? If so it's definitely fake.

 

I recently bought a Dupont on eBay that ended up being my first counterfeit pen. Fortunately the seller refunded the money but it was still annoying/traumatizing. I was too naive and assumed counterfeit MBs were the only ones I had to worry about. The eBay seller I bought from even had a good review history, and the pen included an original warranty card from a well-known vendor (who confirmed that the reference # on the warranty card didn't match the pen). The ebay seller has a few other Dupont listings which I'm highly suspect of and I'm waiting to see if he re-lists the pen I purchased.

 

I'm now paranoid about buying second hand Duponts from unknown sellers since these pens are easier to counterfeit than piston filled pens.

Actually, today it is as easy and cheap to counterfeit piston fillers as any other type pen.

      @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.
