Pencil: 5070 Wahl-Eversharp Gold Filled
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $75.00
Pencil: 5070: Wahl-Eversharp: Gold Filled
This Wahl-Eversharp pencil came from the back stock of a long forgotten jewelry store. Although it hasn't its original sticker, we do believe it to be new old stock. There are no dents or scratches in its gold-filled finish. Twist the Greek-column shaped topper to advance a 1.1mm lead. The mechanism is a little stiff and slow, but it works. Pull back the topper and unscrew it to reveal the spare leads. 13.3cm.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5068 Namiki Pilot Vanishing Point Decimo
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $99.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5068: Namiki Pilot: Vanishing Point Decimo
One of our favorite innovations in fountain pen design was the clickable Parker Vanishing Point. This Decimo is slightly thinner than the standard size models, but it writes just as wonderfully well. Rare in the world of Pilot pens is this very broad 18k gold nib. You will find it to be smooth while allowing you to still feel the paper beneath your hand. It has some very light wear from use, a little scuffing on the silvery nose trim. It works perfectly and comes with a proprietary converter. It also can use proprietary ink cartridges. 14cm.
Vintage Pens: 5069 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 5069: Parker: Duofold
Glittering bronze flakes juxtapose nicely against black flakes on this senior-sized streamlined Parker Duofold. There's minimal brassing and only light chocolate hazing on the end caps. Our vintage pen has been fully restored with a fresh ink sac. We think this is a British Duofold, but there is no mark indicating where it was made. Its faded imprint is still very legible. You will write a splendidly wet, juice broad line smoothly with its 14k gold nib. Click the headline for photos. 13.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5058 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 5058: Parker: 51
A rare broad nib helps this handsome teal blue Parker 51 Demi stand out from the crowd. Its aerometric filler makes it easier to fill, and its original pli-glass sac is still in great working order. The Demi models are a little shorter than the standard models, but it still feels great in your hand and writes well. You'll find a little light wear from use but nothing particularly stands out. Its nib is a degree or two off center but writes smoothly when you find the sweet spot. The broad nib is closer to modern day mediums, just a shade thicker. 12.8cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4932 Pelikan Souverän K805 Vibrant Blue
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $325.00
Pre-Owned Pens: 4932: Pelikan: Souverän K805 Vibrant Blue
Pelikan makes some of the sharpest special edition pens on the market. The way light reflects off the layers of celluloid flakes in this Pelikan K805 Vibrant Blue ballpoint pen is absolutely dazzling. Slowly rotate it under a bright light and it seems as if you'll never see the same image twice. Twist the tail cap on this preowned luxury pen to advance and retract the working blue Parker-style refill. Included with the pen are a cream-colored leather pouch and its original box. The pouch has a few imprints in it. However, the Vibrant Blue pen is in nearly perfect condition. 13.8cm.
Vintage Pens: 5065 Palmer Method Ringtop
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 5065: Palmer Method: Ringtop
Here's a first for us. This is a Palmer Method Ringtop fountain pen. We are speculating that the famed handwriting company began creating special pens to sell in house. We strongly suspect this pen was made for the Palmer Method folks by Wahl-Eversharp. Why? There's just something about its orange hard rubber woodgrain esthetic. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. No cracks or major blemishes to the hard rubber can be found. The gold plated trim has some brassing. Near the top of the cap is a faded Palmer Method imprint. Click the headline to see its 14k gold nib. You will write a lovely extra-fine line with maybe .5mm of flex on this semi-flex nib. It has a little feedback, but it doesn't feel bad. You can write with this pen all day and enjoy it. Long for a ringtop it measures in at 13.3cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4965 Pelikan Souverän M1000
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: O
Price: $499.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 4965: Pelikan: Souverän M1000
If you love luxury, quality and reliablity in a fountain pen and you haven't tried a Pelikan Souverän M1000 you are really missing out. This is the pen that is the biggest rival to the Montblanc 149 in luxury, and although it doesn't have all of the same marketing and branding behind it, many find it far superior. Made in Germany, this pen is a classic black with gold plated trim. You might really love its rare, two-tone 18k gold factory OBLIQUE-MEDIUM nib. The line variation seems subtle to us, but we haven't mastered the art of writing with OM nibs, either. Its piston is smooth and works great. Minimal, if any, wear on the pen. Comes complete with its box and (discolored) leather pouch. Cap logo is black with golden mama pelican and two chicks. 14.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5064 Diamond Point Fill E-Z
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 5064: Diamond Point: Fill E-Z
Back in the roaring '20s, dozens of companies were vying for market share in the competitive world of fountain pens. Diamond Point was more of a second-tier brand that made quality pens but not quite on par with Sheaffer, Parker or Waterman. This ebonite vintage pen still looks really sharp without any chocolate hazing. There is a bit of brassing around the top edge of the ringtop cap. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. Its size 3 14k gold nib has some flex. You will write a wet medium to 1.5mm wide with some feedback. Deep crisp imprints. 10.8cm capped.
