Vintage Pens: 5369: Sheaffer: TouchDown
Pneumatic filling systems are tons of fun and extremely simple to use. That is why we love these Sheaffer TouchDown pens. This one has been restored to great working order. Ready to be a daily workhorse, it isn't in the best cosmetic shape. Its cap and barrel are covered in teeth marks. We aren't sure if this vintage pen is a married cap and barrel, but the teeth marks indicate it has been a pair for some time. You will write a very nice extra-fine to fine line with its two-tone 14k gold nib. 13.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5239: Sheaffer: Cadet
Starting a new school year with a Sheaffer Cadet fountain pen would be way cooler than just a box of #2 pencils. We restored this late Touchdown filling pen with a new ink sac and O-ring. What isn't to love about the simple pneumatic filler? The cap and barrel look pretty good with just a little wear from use. The biggest flaw is the "brassing" on the cap band, which is significant. Best of all, you will write as close to a buttery smooth fine line as a Sheaffer steel F1 nib can get. This is a seriously impressive daily driver for a bargain pen. 13.4cm capped.
