    Yes, I would like it back, and I'm willing to buy it at the price of Ilford Warmtone FB.

    Thank you all for the detailed feedback we now have a clearer picture of the situation.

    We will make a calculation now and then I will post which amount of paper needs to be sold in order to make the project possible.

    Someone mentioned Michael´s and Paulas project. This was a great idea of the two in order to keep Azo allive.

    We might do something similar with quantities.

    Feel free to keep giving feedback.
    I will check in here on a regular basis and post more information in about a week.

    Best regards,

    Mirko

    WOW!
    Rumours are spread even in Sweden and I recently got this thread sent to me by a friend.
    Polywarmtone? YES INDEED! Irreplacable!

    Pretty much love the current Foma Fomatone for lith and also the Kentmere Fineprint Warmtone Finegrain Fb which appearentely lith up similar to the discontinued Forte Polywarmtone. But, hey, the PW14 rocks and I would sell the car for a re-birth. Do it!

    I'd absolutely want it back, even at an increased price.

    I'll join the choir here and say YES PLEASE! PWT matt and glossy is the best paper by a large mile. It would be my standard paper over FOMA if I could get it.

    There's no doubt that it was a beautiful paper. I'll take a few boxes.

    forte coming back as Agentone?

    i've heard from my photo product dealer in toronto that forte employees have reformed into a new company, and will be producing forte formula papers as "Agentone". my dealer says that he is getting a shipment in May 2009...

    I guess you are talking about argentone?

    That datasheet looks like a copy of Fomas Fomatone.

    Argentone? could be!

    That would appear to be correct ath! my hearing must be going with age...

    so, is this Argentone a new paper, and does it have some of the Forte "team" behind it? i'm clearly not familiar with it at all. i think that when my dealer said that a Forte-esque paper was being re born i probably went into La LA Land! i'm a huge fan of Forte Polywarmtone, and was devestated when they folded. i, like many who have responded here, are grasping for any positive news re: a rebirth of sorts for these Forte papers...

    Would the new PWT have the same paper base as the old one? I'm asking because the base of the old PWT was very heavy and added to the high quality feel IMO.
