Looking to try your first fun vintage pen? It will be difficult to find a better deal on a gold-nibbed starter! Sheaffer Craftsman pens offer a great first experience with an easy-to-use pneumatic "TouchDown" filling system. Unscrew the tail cap, pull it out, stick the nib in ink, push the tail tube down and wait a few seconds. Wipe the nib with a tissue, and you're ready to write. We restored this pen with a new ink sac and O-ring. This is a pastel green 1950s Canadian made Sheaffer. Its 14k gold nib writes a buttery smooth fine-medium line. No cracks, strong imprint, only light wear. Click the headline for closeups. 13.2cm capped.
