We work with a lot of teenagers, and the big thing many of them are into is defining themselves as "a basic." We aren't 100% sure what it means, but it seems to involve leggings, fairy lights and Starbucks. When it comes to this plain black slender nonLifetime Sheaffer its like the perfect basic vintage pen. Fully restored with a new ink sac, this ink pen is a great daily driver. It has a nice imprint. The tail has a "c" imprinted, which means it was outsourced to the Celluloid company. Overall the pen looks great, but there is a little brassing. The cap has some pitting and marking. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth, dry extra-fine line. 13.2cm capped.
