    Default New Pen Day

    Just received this at work.




    I've never heard of the brand "Accurate". Is this likely to be a sub brand of a larger company? The nib just says Warranted 14kt. Have to wait another 4 hours until I can get home and ink this beast. Have to decide on an ink too.



    If this doesn't work for me, Will, there may be another package heading your way.

    David, I have encountered at least a pen and a clip (no idea where it came from, part of a bulk purchase) that was branded Accurate.
    I do not have the records on whether that brand is a stand alone, or (more likely) a sub-brand or store-brand.

    What I do recognize is the shape of the metal brace around the lever. I've seen a lever frame or brace in that shape on some Eclipse fountain pens, and I do know that Eclipse has several sub-brands like Marxton, Park Row, and a few others.

    So maybe Accurate was another sub-brand of Eclipse, maybe it's just a brand that someone hired Eclipse to produce for them. Or maybe it had nothing to do with Eclipse, without a complete records (or a time-machine), who could really know?

    I think this one you will like and will stay with you.

    I mentioned this in our correspondence, but I think this is also useful for others here in the forum:

    With ebay being the largest marketplace for vintage fountain pens, the spectrum of seller quality are as wide as it is tall (read: very wide and very tall).
    So to counter that massive variations, I adjust my expectations that I most likely not get *all* that I wanted in a single purchase. Unless I am willing to pay the exorbitant price that some sellers ask.
