Pensbury Manor

Now you can bring back the deep black color and  luster your black hard rubber pens and pencils once enjoyed by using Pensbury Manor Black Hard Rubber Pen Potion No. 9 to re-blacken the oxidized, faded and browned out color that time and exposure to the elements has caused.  It uses the very coloring agent that was used when the pen was originally made.  Pensbury Manor Black Hard Rubber Pen Potion No. 9 is a dye that penetrates the rubber surface pores and bonds with the original rubber in a most satisfactory way.  It is a water based, black liquid dye that bonds with rubber but will not bond with the metal parts of the pen.   The resulting restored color can be hand  buffed to a very high sheen as you can see in the after picture below.  PMHBRPPNo9 comes in 1 and 2 oz bottles - enough to restore from 15 to 40 pens or more.

Pensbury Manor Black Hard Rubber Pen Potion No. 9 - Black Hard Rubber Dye



“The black is totally uniform and  the former line between faded and unfaded BHR is essentially undetectable. It stood up to a great deal of hand-buffing and took a nice shine, and the  buffing didn't appear to remove any dye whatever"          (E.V.)

“Good stuff, Syd. I used it and with one application it restored the original looking color. Buffed up the next day; like new . It was easy. I Would recommend to anybody.“          (D.L.)

The choice to restore any antique object should not be taken lightly.  Some antique and vintage items including Fountain Pens may be of considerably higher value if left in their original, aged, with respectable "patina", condition.   If you have any concern about whether the item you are considering restoring is going to suffer a loss in value by being refinished, do not restore that item. However, there are many wonderful daily writers that will never become the most prized among collectible, investment grade pens, yet they bring pleasure to their users.  The outward appearance of these delightful instruments however may need a boost so they are more "presentable" in public and more pleasurable to use.
