Vintage Pens: Aikin Lambert Capitol Cabinet
Vintage Pens: 2915 Aikin Lambert Capitol Cabinet
It isn't too often that you find an Aikin Lambert that looks as if it just rolled off the assembly line. The imprint and chased black hard rubber look perfect! The imprint declares this a Aikin Lambert "Capitol Cabinet." We laughed when we read it. Wow. There was once a time when the president's cabinet was revered and respectable enough to name a pen after. Who knew?! Fully restored with a new ink sac, this vintage pen comes complete with its original 14k gold nib. The tines are a little bowed in the photo, but it writes a wet medium line with flexi tendencies. It is smooth in the sweet spot, but it sings a little. The semi-flex widens to about 1.2mm wide--not a huge variance from its wet medium nature. No cracks. 13.6cm capped.
