Vintage Pens: 5510 Pelikan Graphos
Filling Mechanism: _Other
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 5510: Pelikan: Graphos
Pelikan first developed the Pelikan Graphos system for technical drawing in the 1930s. This appears to be one of those sets from before the war, although we aren't certain. In theory this pen fills with ink, but we aren't sure how or if this one does. It is a large boxed set with what appear to be 4 nibs that are missing. There are 3 widgets of some sort to the right of the pen in the box, and one of them is potentially missing...unless it is installed in the pen and we are too ignorant to know. Click the headline for a better look, and for a look at the top of the slightly beat up original case/box.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5550 Sailor 1911
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $149.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5550: Sailor: 1911
Quite possibly the best daily driver fountain pens out of Japan, the Sailor 1911 is a must have for most all fountain pen enthusiasts. Also extremely popular are the demonstrator model. This green Sailor 1911 demonstrator looks about as close to new as a pre-owned pen can look. Best of all, it comes with its original boxes and a leather carrying pouch! Click the headline to see the close-up of the nib. It is marked H-M. This means it is a "hard" (firm) medium writer. It is a Japanese medium, which means it is closer to a European or American fine. We also find it to be a dry writer that sounds and feels a little scratchy as it writes. 13.5cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5496 Mont Blanc Johann Strauss
Filling Mechanism: Rollerball
Era: 1980-present
Price: $499.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5496: Mont Blanc: Johann Strauss
Brilliantly turning the bow of a violin into the pocket clip of this limited edition Montblanc Johann Strauss rollerball pen, the world's most famous pen maker "scores" another great hit. New Old Stock, this luxury pen pays tribute to the great composer. Not only do you get a booklet about him, you also get a little hand-crank music box playing his "Blue Danube" waltz. Clearly, the set comes with its original box. Guaranteed authentic.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5516 Pelikan Souverän R200
Filling Mechanism: Rollerball
Era: 1980-present
Price: $99.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5516: Pelikan: Souverän R200
Technically, this Pelikan R200 is called a marble blue. However, as we gaze at the sheening swirls of blue-grey, we prefer to call it "Smoky Blue." Evoking those stunning black-and-white portraits of jazz stars, where their cigarette smoke is its own personality in the photo, we find this preowned pen's design to be just as elegant. Overall, the pen looks nearly perfect, but you can see a ring of wear where the cap snugged against the barrel by the threads. We installed a new, black Pelikan rollerball refill. Complete with its original boxes and papers. 12.4cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $249.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5502: Dunhill: Cubist
Sleek black gleams against the silvery trim of this Dunhill Cubist ballpoint pen. It has a great faceted design for an easy grip and unique look. Complete with its original box and papers! It comes with a working refill that writes a nice black line. 13.8cm.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5498 Mont Blanc Homage to JFK
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $499.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5498: Mont Blanc: Homage to JFK
One of our most tragic presidents, John F. Kennedy gets honored with the Montblanc JFK ballpoint pen. This special edition pen comes complete with its original boxes and book. This is the burgundy model and about as large as a LeGrand ballpoint, maybe a shade larger. We just installed a new turquoise ballpoint refill. Our preowned pen has a nice heft to it, too. Minimal wear, but we're sure you can see it is engraved with "FIZ" in the photo. Guaranteed authentic. 14.4cm.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5512 Pelikan P40 Pura
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $149.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5512: Pelikan: P40 Pura
In our own personal collection we have a Pelikan P40 Pura that is probably the most reliable daily driver that we have. We can't imagine this one would be any different. Complete with its original box and travel pouch (not photographed) this is a luxurious workaday pen. This one is gently used with only light wear. It fills with standard international cartridges. You will write a smooth fine line that might be a shade on the dry side depending upon the ink you use. 14cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5515 Pelikan Souverän R600
Filling Mechanism: Rollerball
Era: 1980-present
Price: $249.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5515: Pelikan: Souverän R600
Pelikan shocked its die-hard customers by eliminating the red-striped design from its line about 10 years ago. Bold, without being gaudy, these pens became a little harder to find, though the company has recently reintroduced the color. This mid-sized R600 model looks about as close to new as you can get. We include a new working refill. The logo sports a golden mama pelican with two chicks on a black background. It comes with its original box. 13.2cm capped.
