Featured pen of the week ...

Flex a Wahl Eversharp Nib!

Ringtops aren't the biggest attraction for pen collectors, but this Wahl-Eversharp's size 2 nib is! It writes an extra fine line but also has some flexibility. It even says so on the nib. See for yourself on the vintage pens page.

Purse pens by Esterbrook are rare, especially in good condition. Luckily for you, our light pink purse pen is in excellent condition. Fully restored it comes with a nice medium 2668 nib. See it on our vintage pens page today!

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.

Rare pens aren't hard to find on Today's vintage pen trophy is a Grieshaber ladies' pen. Or is that lady's pen. Either way, its coppery fire will fan the flames of your desire, if it's original flex nib doesn't!

Our vintage pens pages are the host of a happily married Esterbrook fountain pen with a ruby-red V-clip cap. Said pen also sports an ultra smooth 9556 nib. Both elements are worth the price of the pen, which would be a handsome addition to your collection.

The National Pen Company was a great Chicago pen company before the Great Depression hit. We have one of their handsome oversized Lincoln model pens in a mottled black and orange hard rubber. See our National Pen Co Lincoln on the vintage pens pages.

Monte Verde got really clever when they invented their famous Mega Ink Ball. It is a rollerball pen that fills like a fountain pen from a converter or cartridge! We now have a very gently used one in stock on the pre-owned pens page.

Fine-line writing pen junkies looking for a good daily users will really enjoy today's fully restored Sheaffer Valiant. It has a very smooth nib, and comes with its pencil mate in an original Sheaffer box.

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!
