If you've never tried the brilliantly Rube Goldberg Sheaffer Admiral snorkel fountain pen, you need this to be your first. We love the overly elaborate snorkel filler that keeps your hands clean from having to wipe down any ink. We restored the pen with a new ink sac, point seal and O-ring. There are no cracks, but it has some light wear from use. It also has a tiny edge of brassing on the back of the cap ring. It comes with an open 14k gold F2 nib. This was a grade of fine-point nib, and we think it writes a beautifully smooth fine to fine-medium line. Click the headline for a close-up. 14.1cm capped.
