    Hello to all fountain pen fans! In 2019, this brand shook the world pen community with its appearance. Of course, it would be more interesting to try the Nautilus model, which from the point of view of design is much more attractive, but the only one Korean store where I found an attractive color completely ignored me. That is, when you are refused, it is of course an unpleasant thing but sometimes understand, but when you are completely ignored, it is much more unpleasant, especially since I asked to purchase for the full price, I was only interested in the possibility of delivery with any variants. So a few days before my latest purchase – Pilot Custom 845 , I happened to see this model for sale and decided to take a chance.

    Narwhal Schuylkill 365 Limited Edition Ebonite (made in USA?)

    This pen has a straight cylindrical shape with an almost flat tops and made of red-purple woodgrain ebonite. Some sources say that it is red or dark red ebonite, but it is actually red-purple. The body and cap are fully turning on a lathe, not injection molding. Filling system is real piston-filler. Cap on thread, 2 starts thread, opening/closing in 1 and 1/3 turns.

    @Andrew, lovely review as usual I love ebonite pens, especially vintage ones. You probably know this but Narwhal changed names to Nahvalur

    Yes, thanks, I like the vintage much more too. I know that the name has changed now, but the official website has remained the same and this model has not changed its name because it is limited and is no longer produced. So I allowed myself to keep the name Narwhal))

    Hi! Early some markets did not accept 14K gold as jewelry gold, notably France, so the Montblanc produced 18K nibs for those markets. This model is just one of those. And although I already have several reviews on this model, I decided to make a personal post. I had planned to finish the review on Tuesday, but another missile attack by the Russians plunged us into darkness for 30 hours and left us without heat and water, so I’m only finishing the review now.

    Montblanc Meisterstück 146 French edition (made in Germany) from 1990

    This tool has the same shape known to us as “cigar-like” shape named Streamlined at the time of its release. The body is made of black plastic, which traditionally glows red on backlight. There is an ink window on the body for monitoring with gray tone. Cap on thread, 4-start thread, full closure in 1 turn. The base of the piston collar made from metal (brass), but internal parts are plastic, including the rod.

    Hi friends!
    I decided to do a review of the ink, or rather, not just one ink, but the series of inks. So I'm asking for advice on the right place/thread to publish it. Thanks

    Hello everyone! I haven’t done reviews for a long time, I even miss them a little, but today will be a very short review, because I already have quite a few reviews of this model, it’s just that it has small differences and is made for the French market.

    Montblanc Meisterstück 146 French edition (made in Germany) from 1994

    This tool has the same shape known to us as “cigar-like” shape named Streamlined at the time of its release. The body is made of black precious resin, which traditionally glows red on backlight. There is a striped ink window on the body like in modern LeGrand models. Cap on thread, 4-start thread, full closure in 1 turn. The sleeve of the piston mechanism is made entirely of metal (brass), unlike the previous 146.

    Hello community! I don't know where to post it, but I made two posts about the experience of pens grinding and fixing\adjusting. If anyone is interested, come and watch.

    If you consider the Montblanc 149 an oversize large pen, I can tell you that you simply have not seen large pens)). Today is a review of really oversized pen.

    Lotus Maharadja in Nikko Red (made in India) product code 35

    Earlier, in describing pens, we could find a comparison shape with the shape of a cigar, so the shape of this pen is a real cigar also by size. The material of tool is red Nikko Japanese ebonite. Filling system is cartridge-converter, international format. Cap on thread, one-start thread, for open\closing used 1 and 3/4 turns.

    Hello community! Couldn’t resist against my second color scheme favorite after Aka-Tamenuri, so today is another Urushi beauty in bright red (Aka). I don’t know how it happens, when it seems that the color is simple, and the surface is just glossy, like plastic or resin, but in your own hands and by own eyes, the pen looks so attractive that just can’t stop yourself from buying.

    Wancher DreamPen True Urushi Red w|18K JoWo nib B size (?) true craftsmanship

    By shape, it is the same form as the previous Dream Pen Aka-Tamenuri – is a real cigar made from black ebonite and covered by Red Urushi (Aka – 赤) lacquer (by the way, this cover is more attractive than on Pilot 845 Vermillion). The filling system is cartridge-converter by international format. Cap on thread, close/open in 1 turn. The design of the cap is clipless and have inside a second spring-loaded cap to seal the nib.
