My Rotring 600 leadholder collection
Ref. : …
Production Date : 1989 to present
Here’s a short post about my Rotring 600 leadholder collection. There’s already a lot of reviews regarding the 600 line, so I won’t go into a detailed notice. Some very good ones can be found here :
The thing I’m very happy with is that (to my knowledge) I’ve got every nib sizes that are (were) available : 0.3 – 0.35 – 0.5 – 0.7 – 0.9 – 1.0 – 2.0 mm. They came from different batch of productions and have small differences between them but the full line is quite impressive. The definitive story of the Rotring 600 still needs to be written, but it’s an overwhelming and quite frankly frightening task as they were a lot production batches, mix and match between the batches (and the country they were destined to) and Rotring does’nt clearly documented these changes. I’m working on it but there’s stil big gap in my work, and unknown models seems to pop-up every time I think I’m ok on a particular year or model.
So, to be continued…
