Pre-Owned Pens: 2258 Diplomat Magnum
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $29.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2258: Diplomat: Magnum
Need a go-anywhere pen? Germany's Diplomat Magnum fountain pens are a nice durable pen that look nice with modern design. The muted metal accents nicely accentuate the rubberized feel of the cap and barrel. Each show light wear but still look fine. The metal nib is marked medium and writes a very smooth medium line. This pen uses standard international cartridges, and one presumes will fit most any standard international converters. The section grip is a bit on the slender side. Very lightweight for writing all day. 13.2cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2249 Rotring Esprit
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $15.00
SOLD!
Pre-Owned Pens: 2249: Rotring: Esprit
Examine the photos closely when you click the headline. The Rotring Esprit is a fun little pen for your pocket. It is a conversation starter that works counter-intuitively. Slide the barrel and tail cap apart and the stick ballpoint refill extends. Collapse the pen in nearly half and the ballpoint refill goes into the pen. Seriously, you could play with this for hours just trying to figure out how it works. Leave it to German and Japanese engineers to invent something this cool. It takes those short stick-like ballpoint refills. This one works, but we have no idea how much ink is left.
Vintage Pens: 2238 Scripto Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $19.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2238: Scripto: Fountain Pen
Imitation is the highest form of flattery. This fairly obvious recreation of a Parker 51 was made by Scripto, which was originally an Atlanta-based pen company. (Although it gave up on the pen industry, Scripto still exists as a lighter manufacturer.) We restored this lever-filler with a new ink sac. The hooded steel nib writes a nice fine-medium line. The cap shows more wear (some brassing spots in the plating) than the lightly worn barrel. 13cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2239 Inoxcrom Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $29.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2239: Inoxcrom: Fountain Pen
Smooth-writing affordability is the best way to sum up this nice Inoxcrom fountain pen. We don't know the model name, but we like the way its two-tone steel nib writes a smooth fine line. It uses standard international cartridges or a converter. It hasn't a converter with it, but any standard international converter should fit. The stainless steel cap and barrel are nearly flawless. It comes with its original box and papers. Its only flaw appears to be around the breather hole of the nib, and you can only really see it in the close up visible when you click the headline. 14.3cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2234 Bexley Gemstone Collection Sapphire
Filling Mechanism: Rollerball
Era: 1980-present
Price: $174.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2234: Bexley: Gemstone Collection Sapphire
Believe it or not, Bexley pens is about to turn 25! This Bexley Gemstone Sapphire rollerball pen is a stunner. Borrowing heavily from the beautiful but ill-fated Waterman 100 Year Pen design, this modern classic is holding up much better. Not a true rollerball, it is a capped pen that presently writes with a Parker-style gel refill! The brilliant-blue finish shines through some light wear. 13.8cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2227 Portofino Walker Classic
Filling Mechanism: Rollerball
Era: 1980-present
Price: $19.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2227: Portofino: Walker Classic
They say beauty is only skin deep, and for as stunning as this set of Portofino Walker Classics look, they are a little troublesome. We squeezed in a Pilot G2 refill cartridge in the capped rollerball pen, and it seems to work well enough...although the refill has a bit of play for our taste. The ballpoint uses Parker style refills, and has some film on the cone where it meets the barrel. The Parker Gel refill seems to work well. The radiance of the pens is stunning. Very wear free.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2030 Platinum 3776
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $49.99
SOLD!
Pre-Owned Pens: 2030: Platinum: 3776
Platinum from Japan are popular and affordable pens. This Platinum 3776 is a standard sized pen that looks sharp in black with golden trim. It is nice and lightweight. Light wear is noticeable on the cap and barrel, but it is nothing bad. The gold plated nib writes a wet medium line fairly smoothly, with a hint of drag. The only downside to it is that it has no converter. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2090 Majestic Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 2090: Majestic: Fountain Pen
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.
