Vintage Pens: 2259: Sheaffer: Lifetime TouchDown
Forest green makes for a standout color on this very early wide-body Sheaffer Lifetime Touchdown. We restored it with a new ink sac and O-ring. The pen is very handsome, but there is some light-moderate wear on the cap and barrel. The imprint is strong, but you can see a little bulge warm from where the cap hugged the section grip. Click the headline for bigger photos of it. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes an extra-extra-fine line. It is very firm, but it is a dream pen for extra-fine nib fans. A great vintage pen. 13.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2228: Sheaffer: Craftsman
The engineering geniuses at Sheaffer used pneumatics to fill the company's latest line of "TouchDown" pens in the late 1940s. This Sheaffer Craftsman is a very simple and easy to use vintage pen. We replaced the ink sac and O-ring. All you have to do is unscrew the blind cap in the tail and pull up on the filling tube. Completely submerge the nib in ink, and then you push down the tail filler and wait a second. Your pen is full, and you can tighten down the blind cap. This classic Canadian Sheaffer only has some light wear from use and looks great. The 14k gold nib writes a very nice medium line. Click the headline for a close-up. 13.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2075: Sheaffer: Craftsman
Save on New Old Stock pens with this Canadian Sheaffer Craftsman! You can still see the "chalk" mark pricing on the pen. It is in incredible condition, except there is a bit of plating worn from the clip. We restored the pen with a new ink sac and O-ring to ensure its proper operation, if you want to write with it. The 14k gold nib is marked as a medium, but it writes like a very smooth broad nib by modern standards. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1248: Sheaffer: TM-Triumph
All engravings aside, this rare Sheaffer Touchdown TM Triumph has been one of our favorite finds of late. It looks like it did when it left the store more than 60 years ago. We replaced the ink sac and O-ring. The clip is on tight. There is no wear on the gold-filled pen. It is engraved on the barrel with the name of "Louis Schaaf." The cap is engraved "10 Years / Tension Env Corp". The two-tone conical Triumph nib is 14k gold and writes a firm fine line. Click the headline font to see a close up. A small patch of gold shines through the palladium plate on the bottom tine of the photo. 13.5cm capped.
