Another of the classic third-tier brands, Penman made a descent, inexpensive daily user. Borrowing a little of the Waterman Taperite look, at least in the nib department, it is a serviceable pen for daily use or introducing youngsters into the hobby. We restored it with a fresh ink sac. The cap and barrel have moderate to heavy wear, but the plated nib writes a very nice fine to fine-medium line. 12.8cm capped.
