• Essential Fountain / Rollerball pen

    B&B's Essential Pen
    This one is not just for Fountain Pen Users!
    Brought to you by The Franklin-Christoph Pen Company
    Just in time for The Holidays!

    The B&B team is very pleased to announce the Badger and Blade Essential Pen. We are delighted to work with Scott from The Franklin-Christoph Pen Company. The pen will be based off of the Franklin Christoph Model 27 "Collegia" in the Tuxedo pattern. The Tuxedo pattern will have a black body with chrome accents. The pen will be available as a Fountain Pen, a Traditional Rollerball (uses ink refills) or as a Cartridge Roller System allowing you to use Fountain Pen ink to fill the converter for the Rollerball pen. And for those not sure they would like to use a Fountain Pen all of the time, a kit has been added to allow you to change out the fountain pen nib and section to either the traditional Rollerball section or CRS Rollerball section.

    The Fountain pen will be available in Steel nibs, widths include extra-fine, fine, medium and broad. In addition, Scott from F-C is allowing us to choose from the wide range of specialty nibs ground by the famed Nibmaster Mike Masuyama at NO additional charge, exclusively for this B&B Essential Pen.

    ♦ Markings will include the badger logo laser engraved on the top finial, as well as Badger and Blade around the bottom cap ring. The traditional four diamonds F-C markings will be layered on the clip.

    ♦ Cartridge / Converter (1 of each included) for fountain pens and CRS Rollerballs. Piper 888 refills for traditional rollerballs

    ♦ Spring Loaded Clips / Chrome Plated Trim

    ♦ Fountain Pens are available in factory Extra-Fine, Fine, Medium, and Broad. Additionally, custom ground nibs are available in needlepoint, medium italic, broad italic, medium stub, and broad stub. Custom nibs are ground by nib master Michael Masuyama.

    ♦ Designer's note: The FP and RB will post, but are a touch top heavy, so you may prefer writing without posting cap.

    ♦ Lifetime Warranty. Gift Box included. 30 Day Return Policy.

    The price for the pens will be:
    Fountain Pen $69.50
    Traditional Rollerball $59.50
    CRS Rollerball $59.50.
    Rollerball Sections (traditional or CRS) $20.00

    Measurements are 5.5 inches capped. Posted 6.5 inches. Diameter .48 inches. Weight 1.65 oz.

    Prices will include Shipping, to the entire World! As stated, specialty nibs are included, as well as Franklin-Christoph's Life Time Warranty (check website for details).

    We hope to have the pen on sale on a regular basis, but act fast because the first 50 pens ordered by

    Muhle DE Blades

    Thread Starter: lancelot

    I find Muhle DE razors to do well in the fit & finish department. They also have weight and balance which seems to suit me. Has anyone tried the Muhle DE Blades they now show on their website? They apparently only offer them in batches of 200. At $87.50 they're not cheap. At one time the...

    Need help identifying this vintage Gillette safety razor

    Thread Starter: omegajinx

    I purchased this razor for a whole whooping $10 yesterday at an antique store. I was pretty sure it was a Gillette Super Speed, but I don't really know. I was hoping someone may be able to help with identifying this razor and possibly even it down to a year/decade for the razor's production date....

    Ark with only mineral oil?

    Thread Starter: imatabor

    Can you use plain mineral oil with these stones or do you need honing oil? I saw that some use mineral oil and kerosene but not just plain mineral oil.

    Hoping this is a "Keeper"

    Thread Starter: DaltonGang

    I just bought this a few weeks ago, and have been badger the seller to accept payment and mail it, from France. I don't think the seller liked it going for the low price. The seller didn't know exactly what it was, other than an "Old Gillette". I am awaiting arrival, however long that will take....

    They call me insane

    Thread Starter: euro

    Everytime when I start to talk about this hobby with someone they really keep looking at me as if I'm speaking a different language. I even showed a guy some pictures of my DE razors on my mobilephone (seriously), when he saw the razor he told me "you are crazy, the blade looks so dangerous". I was...

    Cake or puck?

    Thread Starter: fram773

    It is obvious everyone uses the word soap "puck" because many shaving soaps come shaped like a hockey puck. Shaving Made Easy, a vintage book about shaving, used the word "cake" of shaving soap. This seemed curious to me because, again, everyone uses the word "puck" today on the forums. Now,...

    Well I did it

    Thread Starter: dieselfuel79

    I had the bug, and the urge to try out Arko. But how about buying just 1 stick and seeing if you like it first Brad? Nooooooo. I found a great deal on Amazon.ca, and bought a box of 12. Coupled that with a 100 Astra's. $29 later, and free shipping, and I should have the "goods" here by the end...
