View Full Version : Majestic Fountain Pen Versus Roman Harvest Fountain Pen

I have been asked to make a "special" pen for a friend for Christmas which will be a surprise. I was going to get a Majestic Fountain pen kit ( never seen one made up) for him but recently I have made up a Roman Harvest Fountain pen which I showed on the forum this week.
Now I have a predicament as to which pen to make!!!!!!

Has anyone turned both pens to give me some idea??? I know the Roman Harvest is about half the price but that doesn't come into the equation.

Your best bet mate is to make one up and then decide between the two sorry mate I cant help you if you had ask me which one I would prefer to receive then it would be the roman harvest

I am not so sure I agree with Jim sorry to say.
The old Majestic kit was a good kit but once again the quality has dropped over the years and quiet dramaticly in my opinion.
I have been dsiappointed with all kits and there quality of late.
I still have one of the old Majestic kits in its box that I was saving for someone special (yes boxed).
All of the so called high end kits have suffered decline, David at TB is doing something about it but still not enough as yet.
Perhaps I am just being to fussy but these things ain't cheap and we are trying to produce a quality item with crap in a lot of cases.
I would like for you to buy a Majestic and let us know what you think of it then compare it with my old kit.
Woody posted a kit today that is an old one with 5 pieces to make it and all metal parts just see the quality of waht is in that kit compared to what we work with now.
Save a load of money and get what you think looks nicest because they are all made the same now in the same factories, Dayacom being one of the better ones that we can obtain.

don't know if this will help but may depend on weather your friend is male or female as some pens a bit to blingy for men i feel regards mick.

PS if your friend is male you could try a regency pen kit from craft supplies, i made one last year a bit fiddly to make but very nice.

Can i Join the plonker club? I certainly would make a good apprentice plonker, I am learning fast.
Came home from work today and pulled out the Majestic fountain pen kit for Terry, you know the one I said I was saving for a special occasion.
Sorry Terry its a rollerball kit not a fountain pen DOH!!! PLONKER INIT?
I will still send it to you so you can see what a pile of poo kit it is and not worth half the amount they charge for this crap.
And I wonder why I am disillusioned with pen kits, I can't beleive I was gullable enough to actually buy these thinking they were prestige.
First class PLONKER of the highest order me init?




A bargain is something you don't need at a price you can't resist.

That is a nice pen Steven but I am definitely going down the route of the Majestic or Roman Harvest.
Thanks for showing!!!
