Who Can Identify This Soennecken Fountain Pen?



Recommended Posts

Long time ago I got this Soennecken fountain pen from my father. I am not shure if the pen was from my father or grandfather. I assume the pen is made in the period 1950 - 1960. Does anybody know this pen and what the value might be?

According to Lambrou's book, it looks like a S-4 (student pen) 1949.

 

According to Lambrou the Soennecken (111, 222, 333, & 444) were the best piston pens made in the '50's.

Pelikan and MB got into the ball point market early enough to survive. Soennecken missed the boat and died by @ 1960.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

Thank you for posting the link to the very interesting story of MB and Soennecken. It is indeed a S4 pen. Looking closer on the body of the pen I notice the S4 inscription.

 

Any idea of the value of the pen?

E-80-100 perhaps................enough for a good hangover.....then what?

You have fallen into a patch of luck....

But why not use the little darling....fountain pens are fun. :yikes: ................there are many fountain pen coms.....is there a ball point com?...............ok....there is one with 60 members, 45 are still alive, one of the members posted on it, just last year!!!

Ball points are not fun! Just a work tool. Or they would not be free.

 

We are living in the Golden Age of Inks..................we are all grown up Kindergartners.with our 64 crayon box of colors.

Hold the pen like a fountain pen, behind the big knuckle so the bottom of the nib tip can skate lightly in a small puddle of ink....with out any pressure needed at all.

 

Some people....not me, even learn to write well..........and have fun doing it. :unsure:

 

 

You have a pen I couldn't afford....Soennecken was always just over my budget. Osmia was my max....out side of a hand full of MB's that fell into them at various times.

I have one Soennecken.....cap and nib....can't be sure about the body (got it cheap in it was not marked) .....how ever it is my best Wet Noodle.

Yours will not be that, in it was a student pen.....like 3xx MB's or the 120 Pelikan.

Hi! Read this post now after spending some time trying to get details of a Soennecken. I got my hands on a Flipper-K model no: 219

Could you share some details or help me trace the history of this model..

Thanks in advance!

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
