Unidentified gold FP a Kaweco?

Recommended Posts

I found this pen in an online auction and I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about it. I believe it to be a Kaweco due to a few styling cues -- the nib section in particular is very similar to a few 60s Kawecos in my collection. I will receive the book: "Kaweco Book Writing Instruments Since 1883" in a few days, hopefully I'll find more information in that.

There's an interesting steampunk vibe from that pen design. Sorry I don't know anything about it.

I have seen that pen before, but I can’t recall where, nor if it was identified then as it may have been at a pen show or it might have been in a catalog, possibly Levenger about 20 years ago.

Sorry to disappoint you but this is a vintage Chinese pocket pen , several brand had this model on offering and it come with fixed aerometric filling. Considering that the nib show no stamping that tell me it's one of those either for OEM or from the 2nd tier Mfr

 

This one look exactly the same as the GLM 958 but there are others.

      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
