Vintage Pens: 5432 Waterman C/F
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 5432: Waterman: C/F
Waterman C/F rocked the world of vintage pens by introducing the first disposable plastic ink cartridge. This example is a New Old Stock pen complete with its box, papers and sample ink cartridge. The cartridge dried out years ago, but it is amazing to have the complete kit. A nib sticker reads "medium" on the underside of the section, not photographed. Interesting to us is the tag line on the instructions "...loads like a gun...writes like a dream." To the best of our knowledge this pen has never been used. 13.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5430 Waterman C/F

Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI

Vintage Pens: 5430: Waterman: C/F
Cartridge fillers are not a new phenomena in fountain pens. The first ones date back to around the turn of the 20th century. However, those early ones were not entirely practical and prone to their glass and clay cartridges breaking. On the American market, Waterman C/F pens introduced what we have come to know as the first cartridge pens with disposable plastic cartridges. These pens were Waterman's last hit in the 1950s and until the company was revitalized in the 1980s. This rare New Old Stock set is unused and pristine. From the "Fine Flex" chalk mark on the barrel of the pen to 4 unopened, still waxed shut original cartridges, this vintage pen belongs in a museum. Click the headline for close-ups. The steel nib doesn't feel flexi to us, but that is how it was advertised.

Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $59.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5416: Cross: Century Set
Matte black with golden trim makes for a handsome pen set at home or work. The fountain pen might be a Cross Century II while the ballpoint is a Cross Century. Each is in good working order without any serious cosmetic flaws. The preowned fountain pen writes a fine-medium line with its golden alloy nib that is very firm. It also comes with a converter. The ballpoint comes with a new blue Cross refill.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5415 Cross Century II
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $49.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5415: Cross: Century II
All too often pre-owned pen buyers overlook the simple joy of writing with a Cross Century II fountain pen. This pen is an American made version from a little while back, and it is a fantastic writer. Its golden alloy nib is a super-smooth medium to fine-medium writer. The chrome-plated design shows only light to moderate wear from use but no dents. You'll get a Cross converter already installed in the pen. A great, light-weight, everyday fountain pen. Nice strong cap closure. 13.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5424 Sheaffer Targa
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 5424: Sheaffer: Targa
We're gonna make someone mad by declaring Sheaffer Targa's vintage, once again. We waffle on this debate all the time, with the design being nearly 50 years old. Either way, this is a beautiful pen. We aren't sure if this is the 1970s "Gold Checked" model or the 1990s "Geometric" model. Each was given the same model number of 1007. Each was basically the same pen. Our vintage pen is in good working order with an original Sheaffer aerometric-style converter that works. We flushed the pen and gave the nib a sonic cleaning, but a little hint of black ink refuses to leave the converter entirely. Its nib writes a very nice extra-fine to fine line that seems a little dry to us. There is a hint of feedback, but we don't find it too distracting. Click the headline for close-ups. The pen looks good with only a few little traces of wear from us. The black section/grip shows more wear than the gold-plated cap and barrel. 13.5cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5395 LeBoeuf Greg Norman
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $125.00
Pre-Owned Pens: 5395: LeBoeuf: Greg Norman
You're gonna need a bigger pen case. That's right "The Shark" Greg Norman has his own limited edition LeBoeuf fountain pen. Ours is numbered 0668. This is the modern revival of the classic LeBoeuf pen company that first invented the celluloid pen. The PGA champion's autograph is on the black cap of this otherwise gold plated pen sporting an alternating design of plain stripes and a barley pattern. At the top of the cap is an opal, perhaps a nod to his Aussie roots. Its two-tone 18k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. Click the headline for a close-up. You can fill it with its included screw-in standard international converter or like cartridges. The pen looks great overall, though it has a little light shop wear. 14cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $125.00
Pre-Owned Pens: 5374: Rotring: Millennium
Remember what a big deal we thought the Millennium would be? Everything was branded with millennium, such as this Rotring Millennium "ArtPen." Rotring vowed to make these through the year 2000. This is the 1996 edition. It appears to be New Old Stock. No trace of wear and the nib doesn't seem to be dipped. You get all of its original boxes and papers. The cap was hand lacquered and looks better than this photo can convey. Click the headline for close-ups. Its two-tone nib looks as if it is gold, but it is not marked such. It is marked "M" for medium, but we have not dipped it to preserve its newness. It fills with standard international cartridges. It comes with the original empty dummy cartridge and an unopened but dried out cartridge. 17.8cm capped.

Price: $99.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5364: Rotring: Initial
Still stickered and new in the box, this Rotring Initial pen is perfect for anyone new to fountain pens or who loves modern design. There are actually two boxes that this pen comes in. The outer cardboard box is torn, but the plastic presentation box inside is still looking great. The pen is in mint condition and has never been used. Even the seal on the converter is unstained. It comes with a smooth, broad-tipped steel nib. One of Germany's lesser-known but still high-quality brands. 14.4cm capped.
