Vintage Pens: 5366: Sheaffer: Wasp Clipper
Sheaffer liked to pretend Wasp was its own independent pen company, but it really was a sub-brand of Sheaffer. Wasp actually was an acronym for "William A. Sheaffer Pen." The Clipper was the model name. Our vintage pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. This brilliant art deco "brown circuit board" design still turns heads. The celluloid is still in great shape. No cracks or egregiously deep scratches. The metal trim has brassing. Unfortunately, we don't have the original nib. We found it with this 14k gold Gem nib. It writes an extra fine to nearly 1mm line with some feedback. We consider it a semi-flex.

Vintage Pens: 5362: Waterman: 14 PSF
Vintage Waterman fountain pens are among the most popular on earth these days, and with good reason. It is all about their delightful 14k gold nibs. Our Waterman 14 PSF has a great semi-flex nib with a little feedback. It goes from medium to about 1.25mm. It isn't a wet noodle and requires a little careful, gentle effort. Fully restored with a new ink sac, this vintage pen is fully functional and still looks nice. Yes, there's a little hazing in the black hard rubber, but there are no cracks. Its tail imprint is weak but legible. The after-market pocket clip is plain to see. Its biggest flaw is that its inkfeed is a little overextended. Yet, this pen is so old and potentially brittle, we didn't want to start pounding away on it with a hammer to reset the feed. It writes well enough.13.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5358: Esterbrook: J-9788
Esterbrook pens are fascinating on so many levels. They are the pens that taught baby boomers how to write with an ink pen. They were required by many high schools, journalism schools, secretarial schools and so on. Our black Esterbrook J-model is especially interesting because of its upgraded 9788 nib. It is a steel nib that is FLEXI! AND, IT'S SMOOTH! We find that this nib starts as a fine and grows to a 1mm line. It is a lovely writer! This vintage pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. The pen has some wear from use but no cracks. In spite of some scratches and dings, it still looks nice, overall. Click the headline for close-ups. 12.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5355 Waterman 54 Set
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 5355: Waterman: 54 Set
Waterman mastered nib technology in the 1920s, and 100 years later, these nibs are still better than anything on the market. The fountain pen of our Waterman 54 set comes with a real delight of a FLEXI nib. It is just firm enough to allow you to easily maintain a fine line, but then it smoothly gives way to 1mm line. Absolutely dreamy. The vintage pen itself is pretty nice. The 54 was a nice step up from the slimmer 52. The orange pen is made of "red" hard rubber with a black woodgrain design. There are no cracks or deep scratches on the cap or barrel. The section grip was once stained by ink, and the imprint is weak. There is a little brassing on the gold-plated trim. It has been restored with a new ink sac. Its matching pencil still works and is cosmetically better with only brassing on the nose cone. 1.1mm lead. Refills in the tail.

Vintage Pens: 5354: Sheaffer: #2 Self-Filling
WET NOODLE! Fans of flexi nibs can't get enough of true wet noodle nibs, and this, my friends, is a very wet noodle nib! Its 14k gold goodness goes from fine to roughly 1.5mm wide with the lightest of touches. It is a masterpiece of a nib for the price. It is in a nearly mint-condition Sheaffer Self-Filling #2 pen. The black hard rubber gleams with crisp, clear chasing and imprints. Except for some rings where the cap screws against the side of the barrel, this pen could just about pass for brand new. It has been restored with a new ink sac. It is a stunning vintage pen for any collector or writer. Just keep in mind it has no pocket clip. Our favorite detail on the pen is instructions how to unscrew the cap. 13.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5293: Parker: Parkette Deluxe
In the lean times of the Great Depression, Parker created a sub-brand of really inexpensive pens called Parkette. This was the premium model, the Parkette Deluxe! Notice that is is one of the only Parker lever-filling pens. It also uses a cheaper plastic and plated trim that easily came off. Nevertheless, it is a fascinating pen with facetted designs and an art deco aesthetic. You can't see it very easily in the photo, but there are random green spots mixed in with the grey marble look. It looks as if someone was wearing the pen while they were painting a room green, BUT it is actually part of the plastic. We restored this worn but functional pen with a new ink sac. You will find that its two-tone 14k gold nib actually writes a pretty nice fine line. A fine that borders on medium. Click the headline for close-ups. 12.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5349: Waterman: Patrician
Here it is! One of the Granddaddies of Grail Pens: the Waterman Patrician. We've restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. What makes this pen really stand out to us is its black hard rubber (ebonite) cap and barrel. It has a little oxidation and moderate wear, but it isn't a mess of chocolate hazing, either. No cracks. Click the headline for close-ups. You'll write a nice, firm medium line with a little feedback with its original 14k gold Patrician nib. There's a little brassing on the cap band, and there's a slight bulge under the left-side of the clip (as you face it) where it attaches to the pen. The big golden Waterman's seal on the flat tail of the pen looks like a baseball with "Waterman's" written inside it. This is the big 'un. 13.9cm capped.
