• 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

    How do you lather Conk soaps?

    Thread Starter: smballer

    I tried lathering Col Conk or VDH soaps with different brushes. The lather sometimes either gets runny or its so thin that I can see my skin through it. I tried adding drops of water at a time and its gotten better. But I can't really seem to make enough lather for 2+ passes, it seems I have to...

    Have used many pucks of TOBS over the years. I received a Sandalwood for Christmas from the wifey and found this one to seem a little different. Not very slick, very dry feeling...has the formula changed at all over the years? Proraso and Tabac, my other favs, have always been very slick,...

    Supermax Titanium Review

    Thread Starter: CharlieFoxtrot

    This won't be much of a review. I tried one this morning in my '66 Super Speed. All the typical beard prep was in play. Today was a Proraso day, pre/post and soap. I do a standard 3 pass WTG/XTG/ATG shave, but I didn't even get through half of the first pass. Do be fair, I favor Astra SP & Gillette...

    First Charatan

    Thread Starter: simon1

    I've been looking to buy a Charatan for quite some time but, of the ones I was considering, I looked at them so long someone else bought them. :lol: I finally pulled the trigger on a Lane era Diplomat. It's just the Belvedere "Apprenticeship" grade, but the price wasn't outlandish either. Should...

    What is your least used?

    Thread Starter: jsado

    Some of you have monster collections and some have smaller collections. We all have our favorites though. Which AS is your least used and why? My least used AS is Clubman Citrus Musk. I'm ok with the scent and how it interacts with my skin. There's just not enough staying power for me though!...

    PIF vs passaround ?

    Thread Starter: Teppanyaki

    I'm almost to the point where I need to clear out a bunch of shaving stuff (some razors, razor heads, some shaving creams and samples, et cetera). My vision is to throw everything into a box which then goes from person to person, with each person trying out what they like/possibly keeping some of...

    Personna super steel 'comfort coasted' - which was I sent?

    Thread Starter: FatboyFan

    I bought a 100 Personna Blades in a barber pack from a vendor on Amazon but I am a little confused. The description was 100 blades '25% sharper' which I understand are a later (better?) iteration. I got mine today and there was no mention of '25% Sharper' on the box and the blades are in plain...
