Do you have what it takes to join the Black Pen Society? This little black ring top makes entry very affordable. (All you need is to own a black pen.) We think this is an Eclipse brand pen. It isn't marked with a company imprint, but it has a wreath on the lever filler, similar to other Eclipse pens. The black hard rubber is in great shape, and there is very little wear on the near perfect pinstripes. No cracks or deep scratches. We restored it with a fresh ink sac. The Warranted 14k gold nib writes with FLEX that smoothly goes from extra fine to 2mm. It isn't a wet noodle. It rides that line between semi-flex and flex. Once you learn its behavioral trends, you can use it like a true flex. 11.8cm capped.
