Price: $499.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 4585: Namiki Pilot: Vanishing Point Raden Galaxy
Totally Rad. Check out the incredible urushi design on the limited edition Pilot Vanishing Point Raden Galaxy. Real pieces of crushed abalone shell are lacquered into the finish of this amazing design topped off with Rhodium-plated trim. Although it was used, it shows minimal wear. It comes with a box and converter. The pen barrel is is marked "Namiki" instead of the usual "Pilot." Its Rhodium-plated 18k gold nib also is stamped Namiki with the markings of "B" to indicate it is a broad nib. We find it writes smoothly, though you can feel the paper as you write. It also leans closer to an American or German medium nib, as is common for a Japanese nib. We cannot confirm this is the original box, as we have seen bamboo/wooden boxes for these pens. Yet, we guarantee the pen is authentic. 14cm.

Pre-Owned Pens: 4583: 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 0672. 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 appears to be an opal, perhaps a nod to his Aussie roots. Its two-tone 18k gold nib writes a smooth extra-fine line. Click the headline for a close-up. You can fill it with its included screw-in standard international converter or like cartridges. 14cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4580: Esterbrook: J-1555 Gregg
It is amazing to us how the shades of green varied so much in Esterbrook J-model pens such as this one. There can be no doubting this is a lighter yellow-green. Overall, it is in great shape. No cracks or deep scratches--just light wear from use. It sports a still-fresh original Esterbrook-marked ink sac! Works great. The real surprise treat with this vintage pen is its surprisingly smooth extra-fine steel nib made for the Gregg writing method! Often these nibs are quite scratchy, but this one writes very well. 12.8cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4578: Sheaffer: Imperial Desk Set
Go back to work looking your finest after the pandemic by kickin' it old skool with a classic Sheaffer Imperial Desk Set. This fountain pen and ballpoint set look fantastic. Light wear on the visible surface of the onyx/obsidian/black glass base. It has a couple small chips on the bottom leading edge. The Sheaffer logo on the opposite side has a couple letters scratched out. It comes with an unengraved brass plate. The ballpoint pen has a working black Sheaffer refill. The fountain pen has a working Sheaffer squeeze-bar converter but can also use Sheaffer cartridges. Its 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line. It writes smoothly with a light touch. This is a large, clunky, heavy item. International shipping charges will likely be steeper than the usual amount the website knows to ask.

Price: $99.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 4385: Visconti: Traveling Ink Pot
Travel the globe and never run out of ink when you get this Visconti Traveling Ink Pot. This large capacity ink pot is ink tight, fits most luggage easily, comes with an eyedropper, blotting cloth and even an ink pellet to make ink with distilled water! The whole thing even comes with its original box! This ink pot had been used, as we cleaned out all the ink chambers. Yet, the entire assembly looks to be in good working order. Even the blotter cloth is ink free.

Vintage Pens: 4577: Esterbrook: Desk Pen
Dress up your desk with one of the top-selling pens of the 1950s, an Esterbrook Desk Pen. This is essentially an Esterbrook J-model pen with an 8-ball-esque holder. We don't think this pen has every been used. It has a still factory-fresh original Esterbrook-marked ink sac. We filled the pen with water, and there was no color when we emptied it. The pen shows some light wear. Its base only has wear around the steel accent ring. The original black felt is on the bottom of the base reading "Esterbrook / Desk Set / No. 112 / Made in U.S.A." Its 1550 nib is like writing with the corner of a razor blade. It is extra fine and it digs into the paper. Luckily these nibs unscrew and are very interchangeable. International shipping might cost extra to account for the size and weight.
Vintage Pens: 4574 Sheaffer Lifetime
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4574: Sheaffer: Lifetime
Sheaffer Lifetime flat tops are such nice daily writers. This pen isn't much more than that. Fully restored, it works well but it shows plenty of wear on the cap and barrel. There is brassing on the trim, and the clip is a little loose. It has an authentic Sheaffer section and nib assembly, but it isn't the correct one for this pen. Its 14k gold nib writes a medium line with a little feedback. A great daily writer. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.4cm capped.

Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 4559: Parker: Duofold International
So close to perfection, it is painful. Tragically, this otherwise mint condition Parker Duofold senior fountain pen made of orange hard rubber, has a triangle shaped hole in its side where the rubber blew apart. We super-glued Humpty Dumpty back together, and it looks like a museum piece with the cap closed. Such sharp, crisp milling on the cap and tail ends! No brassing. An original "Christmas tree" inkfeed. An original box! We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Its 14k gold original nib writes a smooth fine line. Everything works great. Too bad about the side of the barrel. Its button filler is also pretty chewed up, BUT we think it is solid 14k gold! Click the headline for close-ups. 14.1cm capped.
