Update 17.01.2014. Today the final pen has been shipped. Unfoetunately I must withdraw the offer because of some urgent personal matters I must attend. Hope you will all understand



Update 14.01.2014. Today I bought three pens. They were 2 Silver ones with Gold EF nibs and one Black with Gold M nib, the black one is for me :D. There are 3 Silver+Gold EFs left in the store. And also there are couple of Black Ms and couple of Silver+Gold OMs. Here are some photos of the purchased pens and test of line width of my Black M. You can see on my Black pen an original German price sticker of 189 DM. It will stay there forever as a reminder of German engineering excellence. It makes it really unique!

Update 11.01.2014. Today I was near the shop so I entered again. Today was working a really unpleasant lady, and yesterday there were two really nice and helpful ladies. The point is, it appears that there was only one 600 Silver pen with Silver nib, the one in the cabinet and they sold it this morning. This lady didn't want to tell me exact quantities of nib sizes or even let me take photos of them. The only thing she said they have 26 pieces in total of Black and Silver pens with Gold nib combined. I'll go back there when there are going to be the first two ladies. I hope they will help me more.


Hello guys. Today I was on a business meeting in a town near where I live. I had some spare time so went to an art shop I know. When I entered I was shocked!

In the glass cabinet were sitting THREE Rotring 600 Fountain Pens. One was Black Gold Nib, one Silver Gold Nib and one Silver Silver Nib. I was amazed!

I looked at nib sizes. Black one was Medium, Silver one with gold nib was Oblique Medium and they have one Silver Gold Nib edit EXTRA FINE. And the Silver Silver one was Fine nib.

The most beautiful thing is they cost 185$ in gold nib version and 90$ in silver nib version.

If anybody wants one I'm going back there within 7 days and I can buy one for you.

The shipping with tracking is 15$, the tracking works for over 50 countries. edit 3. Unfortunately I'll have to ask 10$ because of PayPal fees. They took 20$ so far. So that would be 210$ of fees for Gold Nib versions. They come in simple Rotring cardboard box.

I don't really now the quantities. I now there is only one Black Gold M nib left and couple of others. If your interested I'll contact them by phone to get accurate quantities.

Send me pm if you're interested.

Edit2. The correction from Lava to Black. I confused the two. I'm sorry. Can the thread title be changed?

Are the silver ones the original version of the 600 with the knurled grip?

I think they are original version, all of them. I understand knurled means with grid like texture on the grip then yes.

They look all like this, all versions. This is not my photo.
