Vintage Pens: Wasp The Clipper
Vintage Pens: 4078 Wasp The Clipper
Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
You can tell pen collectors pre-Generation X designated this design as "retriculated" and "circuit board" not "Matrix." We think Neo might approve of our Wasp "The Clipper." It is a very futuristic design for the 1940s. Wasp tried to pretend it was an independent brand, but it was really a Sheaffer brand designed for the second-tier market. We restored this pen, and there is nothing second tier about it. It has a new ink sac, and the vintage pen has very little wear. No cracks or noteworthy scratches. It has a little brassing or chipping of the silvery finish on its lever. Strong imprint. And O-M-G! The 14k gold nib writes a super-smooth fine line that is fine and wet. You will love writing with this pen. 13cm capped.
