Paul E. Wirt Fountain Pens

Recommended Posts

There used to be a great website about Paul E. Wirt Fountain Pens, but it has not been up for a while. I love Paul Wirt pens, so I have decided to make a website dedicated largely to Paul Wirt pens to showcase this great brand that seems to be under appreciated by current vintage fountain pen collectors. It also showcases my other interest in fountain pen filling systems. Please check out the links below.

Thank you for your website! It is most helpful.

 

My husband owns a Wirt that is very similar to one that you show in your Overlays photos. It is the fourth one down - with the gold overlay on the cap and body. This pen was owned by his great-grandmother and is now part of my husband's mother's trust. This pen, however, was never engraved. It is in very good condition for how old it is.

 

So your website has been very helpful in learning a bit more about the pen. Thank you again.

I added this domain to help people find information about Paul E Wirt fountain pens history, models, imprints, nibs, etc.

http://wirtpens.com/

This is just another domain name that goes to the same Paul Wirt pen website. That should be easier to remember!

Thanks for a great insight (and enduring reference) into Paul Wirt pens.

Unfortunately I don't see many (in fact none!) on the Australian vintage pen scene.

Despite this, I have managed to acquire a few. They are amongst my favourite pens.

Well done.

      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
