Featured pen of the week ...

Visit our Filigree Eyedropper

There is an air of mystery surrounding today's eyedropper pen with golden filigree. We don't know who made it, but it is looking for a loving home and a little nib repair for its slightly flexible nib. It is an interesting vintage pen.

Not quite a Porsche, but almost as smooth and fast is our Sheaffer Targa on the vintage pens page. Yeah, we guess it is time to start thinking of the '80s in terms of vintage. The kids born in '89 are now 25. Anyhow, this pen is a smooth-writing beauty with a great gold inlaid nib.

Egyptologists will dig our latest Trading Post submission! It is a Cross Townsend with of the Tut-uncommon (haha) variety. You gotta see it to believe it.

The black jewel gives away the age of this Parker 51. It is a baby compared to most of the one collected. Ours was a daily user and engraved, so we gave it a little extra discount!

Big, bold and beautiful. That's the best way to describe our latest oversized Sheaffer Lifetime. We really zeroed in on a great nib photo that you need to see, too. Fully restored and ready to write or display! It is at the top of our vintage pens dial.

Everybody needs at least one Waterman's Hundred Year pen in their collection, and today's offering is a beaut. You'll love its huge nib that writes a delectable fine line. Fully restored. Wide bodied. Large pen. It's got some wear, but it is a great daily writer. Better still is the rare Hundred Year Pen with a center band instead of a cap band! Check them out today. 

Check out our handsome black-and-gold 1940s Waterman fountain pen on the vintage pages. It is fully restored with an excellent fine-writing "Ideal" gold nib. Just below it is an even more amazing Waterman Red 5!

Pre-owned pen lovers will flip when they see today's Waterman Lady Agathe. It comes complete with its original box, papers...and travel tube. Like new and barely used, it is a green and purple vision. You'll also love its 18k gold medium nib. 

We are pleased to feature series of piston-filling Faber Castell fountain pens from the 1970s. These vintage pens come with different nibs, and our first one has a delightful stub nib made of 14k gold. Our second has a plain bold/broad nib on it. The third has a fine-point nib.

Head over to our Ink Pages to see 4 great colors of bottled ink by Yard-O-Led. In addition to that, we now carry Schmidt rollerball pen refills!

If a mandarin yellow oversized senior Parker Duofold fountain pen is the holy grail for main collectors, does that make a junior sized one the holy sippy cup? You won't laugh when you experience the remarkably smooth medium nib. Plus it still has its Christmas tree inkfeed.

We just posted a rare early hard-rubber Sheaffer's self-filling pen to our vintage pens page. The clip and cap band are even marked 14k gold! The original nib has a bit of flex and is stamped "self-filling".

We just picked up a stack of 24 new-old-stock German fountain pens by Reform. These steel nibbed pens are good writers with a piston filler. It is an ideal pen for knock-about use or for beginners.

Rock and roll your troubles away with our newly added rocker blotter. Made of wood, with a nice little inlay design, it is sure to dress up your desk while helping with the occasional spill or drip.

Even today the bold art deco Parker Duofold twin desk set is a sight to behold in "big red" glory. We think the base is quartz, and we know it is very dynamic and handsome. See it today on our vintage pens page.

There is something about the elegant swirls of brass that create an inkwell's base and tray that will take your breath away. We won't waste your time describing it here. You really need to see it on the Inkwells and Blotters page!

The pen is mightier than the sword, but our new Allegory 1941 ballpoint pens are battle proven! These limited edition pens are made from the original teak deck of the U.S. North Carolina, a battleship that earned 15 battle stars during WWII. Bolt actions extend and retract the Parker-style refills, which are a nifty addition to the pens. See them today on our Pre-Owned Pens section...even though they are brand new in the box.

Remember, also is your home for great vintage pen restoration. All customer repairs move to the front of the repair line, which means we plan on maintaing our one-to-two week turnaround time on your pens!
