Meet Mabel and Her Fine-Point Nib

The only imprint or engraving on our latest green lady's pen is the name Mabel. We don't know much about her, but she seems to be English. Her "1st Quality" 14k gold nib writes a fine line that is lovely.

England might be known for fog and grey skies, but there is superb aqua-green coloring on our newest vintage pen from Platignum. It is just a basic steel-nib lever filler, but it will be sure to brighten you collection.

Hard to come by, we have an Eversharp Skyline with a flex nib. While it might not be a wet noodle, it has more flex than most people commonly see in this vintage pen classics. Fully restored, it is well worth checking out.

Start your weekend off with a classic Parker Vacumatic with a wet, smooth, fine-point 14k gold nib! It is a great daily user from 1942 that is fully restored and ready for years of pleasurable service. We might be mistaken, but we think this vintage pen has silver trim, as opposed to the nickle trim of the later war years.

It is time to stop teasing you. There's a handsome devil on the vintage pens page. It is a daring oversized golden brown Sheaffer Balance Lifetime. With a fresh ink sac it is ready to write for hours with its original two-tone 14k nib that straddles the line between extra fine and fine. See it today!

We have a handsome Sheaffer Imperial with its original store markings on our Vintage Pens page! We restored the filling system, and it writes with a great medium nib...that appears to have been super glue back on at some point. It writes well, it just looks a little odd on close inspection.

Every pen collector needs at least one good ballpoint pen, and we think our sterling silver Parker Classic set is a perfect addition to your collection. The click pen looks like the sterling Parker 75 fountain pen. It is in nearly perfect condition with a working refill. The pencil also works perfectly. No dents!

We had a great run of Esterbrook sales in the past month, and now we're restocking our collection. We've just added some very nice daily users in red and black J and LJ models.

Wahl-Eversharp was resurrected for the first time in the late 1990s or early 2000s. Part of its return included this limited edition tribute to Walt Disney. Disney used to advertise for the brand when the Skylines were first popular. We have one of these handsome limited editions on our preowned pens page for under $100! Click here to see this great modern Eversharp Skyline.

Gallop on down to the Trading Post to see a great classic Mont Blanc 212 set and a brand new, never used Visconti Pininfarina! They just went live today. Don't miss 'em.

Also hailing from that wonderful northern neighbor, is our latest Parker Duofold True Blue. Yes, it is discolored with some wear and tear, but it is still a great writer and a fascinating addition to your collection.

Write some out of this world prose (or poetry) with the Omas Galileo. A limited edition luxury fountain pen, it comes packed in a heavy telescope lens. Numbered and handsome, we've got it going for a bargain.

Today's preowned luxury pen is a 1995 tribute to the invention of the radio back in 1895! The Omas Marconi is a fabulous Italian pen and part of a limited edition. It comes with its original box and papers. See it today!

We just picked up a beautiful new collection of preowned luxury pens. We are uploading one a day, and we are starting with this handsome tortoise shell Chinese lacquer rollerball and fountain pen set by S.T. Dupont. It is the S.T. Dupont Montparnasse. The FP writes a fine-medium line with a beautiful 18k gold nib. We put a fresh refill in the rollerball pen. The set comes with its various certificates and most of the original contents of its original box.

We've added a beautiful new lavender Conklin Herringbone to our preowned pens page. It comes with its original box and papers, and it is in minty fresh condition.

Slowly but surely we are updating our new pens section. Today we are pleased to announce the addition of the Lamy 2000 line of writing instruments. Award-winning design is its hallmark. Made of steel, these pens have a nice heft and balance while sporting a wider grip that also helps people who suffer arthritis and hand cramps from skinny pens.

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!
