Pre-Owned Pens: Sheaffer Sentinel

Pre-Owned Pens: 1921 Sheaffer Sentinel
Era: 1980-present
Price: $29.99
Reviving the Sentinel name, Sheaffer brought forth this fountain pen in the 1980s or '90s. It bears a striking resemblance to the Mont Blanc Noblesse, which is unusual for Sheaffer designers. Still it is a nice slender preowned fountain pen in excellent condition. The alloy nib is marked both "F-4" and "M,"over the years those would imply two conflicting nib designations. Either way, it writes a nice, smooth fine-medium line with only a hint of feedback. It uses cartridges or a converter but comes with neither. It does include its original box and papers. 13.4cm capped.
