Dunhill...but genuine?

This - it's lovely to use, and I think the gold is real, but after buying this I noticed a lot of similarly-worked items out of Japan, mostly Dunhill-Rollagas-branded lighters and pens. So it might be a fake!

Beautiful! My dad just gave my husband an old Parker 51. He bought it before he left Venezuela in the 50s. Says it was his first nice pen. We love it!!

I’ve been enjoying this Franklin-Christoph #46 with an italic nib. This is my first F-C pen. There will be more, not doubt.

I have a handful of the FCs and all of them are better than I expected they would be. I really like their italic nibs also.

I love that green FC! Nice Tudor also!

Thanks. Have you tried their “SIG” nib? I gather it writes somewhere between a stub and an italic. They have a big desk pen coming out that I think I may order with this nib.

Yes, and the SIGs are very good. You can buy them separately and I highly recommend them.

Have not heard about the desk pen. Let us know how you like it.

Today it's one of my Sheaffer Tuckaways that was most likely made in 1945. It is the second from the left.

The Blue Mamba (Aurora) came in today, so that’s the one I am playing with the most. Here it is with the new 36mm Explorer.
