Conway Stewart Duro 2A

It's been some time since I wrote these first impressions but there's little to add. The Duro remains a delight to behold and to use. I've kept it at home and take it out of its dark cupboard every other night to write a page or two just for the fun of it. It starts without hesitation and keeps on going.

Thanks for sharing this story of restoration with us.

 

For me the Duro 2 and 2A are probably the best Conway Stewart pens ever produced. It’s quite subjective, but I love the design, the nibs and the writing ergonomics. The nib/ink combination looks wonderful with your handwriting.

 

If I was to neat pick, I would say the clip is a bit heavy for the overall line of the pen, but one could easily argue that a clip was missing from the original design as well.

 

Enjoy many pages of writing together!!

Thanks. I quite agree about the cap furniture. It's on the heavy side, especially for the length of the pen. Well, nobody's perfect and what matters most is the writing experience with the pen. In that respect the Duro cannot be faulted.

It is also my experience with those pens - they are excellent writers, which is the point of a pen indeed.

What a beautiful pen. Thank you for sharing its stories. :thumbup:

 

I'm lucky enough to have a black Duro 2.

It too has the #6 nib, which is such a pleasure to write with.

It looks in a very good shape MalcomH. I own a similar black one plus an Orange Casein and a 770M, each of them a pleasure to write with :)

I must say this 2A would fit perfectly well with those three :D

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
