Original Bic Cristal Pen by J.B. Wood
Hello, all, and at the risk of revealing my age a bit of trivia: Back in the early 60s when the subject pen sold for 19 cents the "nose cone" was all made of solid brass. At that time Bic had TV ads where the pen was fired from a rifle, attached to the boot of a figure skater, etc to show how...

Mis-threaded Waterman Carene? by [email protected]

Quick Reference Guide for Noodler's Ink by Tim McNamara
Given the near-total lack of activity in this newsgroup, only you and I seem to have seen this attack on Nathan's products. That said, I no longer use Private Reserve or Noodler's Ink because of clogging problems in my pens, including a couple that are just no longer usable (and I don't...

Rotring 600 - was there a 1mm mech pencil? In lava? by [email protected]
I am madly and deeply in love with .9mm/1mm pencils. I currently use a rapidly wearing (but gorgeous!) cheapo Ticonderoga, with a twist-erase Pilot as a backup, but would like something more... substantive. I have heard tell of the Rotring 600 being made in 1mm, which I understand is identical to...

Inkless Metal Pen by Aaron W. Hsu
