Piave, 1930's 2Nd Tier Pen



Recommended Posts

sombrueil

I just got this handsome pleasant Italian celluloid pen from Rick Propas aka The PENguin. He couldn't find any information on it and of course neither could I. But it is an interesting pen. Rick placed it somewhere in the 1930's, a second-tier pen of what appears to be a very obscure make. It's a lever fill, celluloid. The photos don't really capture the color very well. It's green on black, faceted. The nib is a replacement Montegrappa, an example of a very flexible but not particularly soft nib. You need to press to get the flex, but there is a whole lot of it. Without pressure it is a fine. A great user pen! The lever is a bit rusty, and at some point in its career it got a couple tiny what look like burn spots on the cap. Otherwise though it is in excellent shape for a pen in its eighties.

Thanks for posting this interesting pen. I have a weak spot for mystery vintage pens. You never know what you get but sometimes I'm amazed. I have some no-names that put popular major brands to shame. B) Yours seems to be a really nice one. Is the replacement Montegrappa nib consistent with the age of the pen or a much younger one?

I don't think it is that much younger. It is ebonite, has a flat visible surface and the only channels are on the sides. I would take a picture but frankly my only camera is my phone and that is terrible.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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
