Vintage Pens: Majestic Fountain Pen

Vintage Pens: 2090 Majestic Fountain Pen
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $39.99
It isn't often that you can find a gold-nibbed vintage pen for less than $40. Majestic pens were a third-tier pen maker back in the 1930s and '40s. This attractive brown-striped pen has a brand new ink sac and is ready to write. It also has a clear ink-viewing window. There are some scratches and wear on the pen. No cracks in the lip of the pen, but the very top has either two little cracks or deep scratches. Armed with a 14k gold nib, this pen writes a medium line with a little feedback. Technically, the nib has a little flex, but it isn't really a flex writer. Yet, if you want practice honing a nib to make it a flex, this might be a good nib to try your hand while not spending a fortune. 12.4cm capped.
