Go gray. It is not too early to appreciate this classic Sheaffer Statesman snorkel fountain pen. We love the intricate Rube Goldberg snorkel-filling system...the mess-free way to fill a vintage pen. We replaced the ink sac, O-ring and point seal. No cracks mar its surface, but it does have light to moderate surface wear, which is hidden easily by the handsome grey color of the pen. It comes with a screw-out, later-model palladium silver nib that writes a smooth, wet extra-fine line. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib. 14.2cm capped.
