    Zunächst mal: toller Internetsauftritt. Alle Reviews alphabetisch zu ordnen erspart dem Füllerinteressierten Zuschauer eine Menge Zeit. Eine Frage habe ich: hätten sie Interesse einen Füller zu reviewen? Ich würde ihnen einen Cleo Skribent Tertius zur Verfügung stellen, allerdings nur leihweise (er ist mir zu lieb und teuer als das ich ihn verschenken könnte). Wenn das kein Problem darstellt, würde ich ihnen diesen Füller gerne zum reviewen senden.
    Vielen Dankes grüßt ganz lieb

  • Paullette Francoeur

    Mr. Brown, i am very interested in purchasing a Trio A3 Glass-nib Fountain Pen. Please advise. Thank you.

    • sbrebrown

      That’s a tough pen to get a hold of. All I could recommend would be to keep an eye on Ebay and the Fountain Pen Network.

  • Rishabh

    Hello Mr. Brown.. Could you please tell me the name of the tune that plays in the intro of your reviews. Thanks !

    • sbrebrown

      It’s a bit of Greek orthodox music, Ton taphou Sou Sotir.

  • Kevin Geiss

    the pelikan m1005 demonstrator video is marked as private on youtube. I didn’t know if that was overlooked or if it’s not ready for publishing yet?

    • Kevin Geiss

      More precisely, I’d say I’d love to see it but I can’t because it’s marked private, and I was hoping you’ll publish it soon!

      • sbrebrown

        Yes, it’ll go online this Wednesday.

  • Markus Speringer

    is there a personal reason why there isn’t a single review of a S.T.Dupont pen? or just coincidence?

    • sbrebrown

      The brand doesn’t particularly appeal to me.

  • Michael Copple

    Good evening Stephen, I just a couple of days ago acquired a JinHao 250. I don’t see it in your reviews, but I’ll give you my quick impression of it.
    Dis-assembly is just like a Hero 68 and they are about the same weight give or take some. Very sleek stainless steel body. Cap does not post very well when you want to use it. And I am using Hero black ink on a Leuchtturm1917 notebook. The pen is very wet and the ink does not dry fast enough for a leftie to use as an everyday pen.
    You should get one to try and see about what you think.

    • sbrebrown

      I recently tried one, the review will be up in the foreseeable future.

  • Michael Copple

    By the way, the Hero black ink has a rather peculiar (not appealing) scent to it.

  • Mehrzad Ghasemi

    Hey there Stephen Brown. I purchased a Sheaffer Sagaris, a Parker IM, and a Parker Sonnet by your videos. Now I want to buy a Waterman Expert. I think it’s beautiful and the nib is large and shiny. Is it possible for you to review this pen? I thank you so much in advance.

  • Anirban Bhaduri

    SBRE Brown you always say,”I hope this was useful”, but your videos are not at all useful.

    • sbrebrown

      And yet you keep watching them.

      • Randy R

        I noticed that too, Stephen.

        Personally, I find your videos exceptionally useful, helpful and entertaining and suspect that Anirban is in the loud but very tiny minority. THANK YOU!!

        • sbrebrown

          Thank you.

      • Susmita Bhaduri

        Which pen’s picture you have put in the background of where you have written ”PENS PAPER INK & GEAR” in your website

  • Anirban Bhaduri

    What is your favourite pen and why?

  • Susmita Bhaduri

    Which pen’s picture you have put in the background of where you have written ”PENS PAPER INK & GEAR” in your website

  • Gabriel Everest Gonzalez

    Hello Dr. Brown :)! I didn’t know you were a PhD, thank you for sharing your research… Could I please have your thoughts on my following question? I’m looking for beautiful — soft (gold or palladium) fine to extra fine nibbed fountain pen. I want this pen to be an heirloom so the quality of the materials and craftsmanship must reflect that goal. I have about $600 to spend on a pen and was looking at the Montblonc classique. Would you have any thoughts or suggestions for a pen I can use in a suit working, or in class, or just taking notes studying and is therefore not too disturbing in these situations. So, would you have any thoughts of a pen that fit this description? I am doing tons of research on youtube channels like yours, figboot’s, and Goulet Pen Company as well as through jetpens and various other stores and websites. Thank you very much in advance. I quite enjoy your videos, I have always learned something from them.

    • sbrebrown

      The Classique is a good choice.

      • Gabriel Everest Gonzalez

        Thank you, I’ll take a look.
