Pre-Owned Pens: 4206 Pelikan Hunting
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $2,499.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 4206: Pelikan: Hunting
Quite easily one of the most gorgeous pens we ever held, we dare you not to be breathless when you first hold the Pelikan Hunting fountain pen. Rarer than the famed Toledo models, this pre-owned luxury pen sports a hunting scene in sterling silver relief. A reindeer, dogs and birds can all be seen in the forest. A forest green celluloid offers excellent contrast to the perfect silver. The whole pen is in perfect condition, and it comes with its original boxes and papers. A treasure, to be sure, but you can also write with its smooth, fine-point nib of 18k gold. The pen size is that of an 800-series fountain pen.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4205 Pelikan Blue Ocean
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $999.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 4205: Pelikan: Blue Ocean
A transluscent blue demonstrator looks like sparkling Mediterranean waters near Greece or Italy. Blue Ocean Pelikan fountain pens are rare and limited to only 5,000 pieces in the world. We are lucky enough to have one gently used one complete with its box and papers. It is an 800-size luxury pen. It has light wear where the cap rubbed against the barrel as it threaded on to the barrel. There also is a stubborn spot of ink that got between the inner cap and outer cap. Otherwise, the pen is perfect with a smooth writing 18k gold medium nib.
Vintage Pens: 4168 Esterbrook Dollar Pen Model B
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 4168: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen Model B
There are two reasons we think Esterbrook fans are going to love this Esterbrook Dollar Pen Model B. On first glance you'll see the very rare 3 incised cap bands. A closer look will reveal the semi-rare steel 2788 nib! You will write a wet, medium-broad line with the nib normally...BUT it also is a semi-flex that can go much broader. It gets a little scratchy on ascenders and descenders, but it is smooth in the middle. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. No cracks, strong imprint. Light wear from use. 12.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4155 Wahl-Eversharp Desk Pen Set
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 4155: Wahl-Eversharp: Desk Pen Set
A brace of woodgrain Wahl desk pens is ideal for the person with the rare 2-pen desk base that is missing its pens. We restored each with a new ink sac, and we are stunned at how minimal their wear is. No cracks, no chips, no scratches! The gold-plated trim rings and levers have some corrosion or gunk or brassing that won't polish out for us. Click their headline for a closer look at the whole pens and the nibs. The more vibrant, front desk pen comes with a 14k gold "Wahl Signature Pen" nib that writes a fine-medium line nicely with a little feedback. The duller-finished back pen sports a "Wahl 6 14k" nib that writes a blissfully smooth wet medium-broad line. The back pen measures 22cm and the front pen measures 21.8cm.
Vintage Pens: 4150 Eclipse Desk Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 4150: Eclipse: Desk Pen
Joining us from either the late 1920s or the early 1930s is this Eclipse desk pen. We find it is a unique vintage pen. It has a celluloid barrel but a hard-rubber taper and section. Both of those elements are showing discoloration. Its nib is a Canadian-made "Warranted" nib of 14k gold. It writes very smoothly as a broad nib at a very low angle of attack on the paper. If you hold it more vertically, it is finer and scratchier. It should be easily shaped to whatever point you like best by a nibsmith. We restored it with a new ink sac. No desk base, just the pen. 20cm.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4113 Pelikan K200
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $99.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 4113: Pelikan: K200
Pelikan is best known for its luxury fountain pens, but its ballpoint pens are no slouches, either. This K200 green demonstrator is amazing. It has a click-advance and retraction of the refill. You can see it has an authentic Pelikan ballpoint refill, which is actually the Parkere-style refill. It writes a great black line. On top of the clicker is the logo of a mama pelican and 2 chicks. The pen has a little light wear from use, but it looks great and writes wonderfully. 13.2cm.
Vintage Pens: 4107 Parker Lucky Curve
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 4107: Parker: Lucky Curve
There's so much to love about this Parker Lucky Curve...and so much to be disappointed by. On the one hand, this vintage pen has an excellent cap and barrel with no cracks and sharp pinstripe chasing as well as a clean imprint. But the cap band has a lot of brassing on the bottom edge. We'ver restored it with a new ink sac. It has its original intact Lucky Curve feed AND an original Parker Lucky Curve P3X nib! Click the headline to see a close-up. That image is magnified close to 10 times its original size, but it still doesn't show the huge hairline crack sprouting out through the 3 and drifting to the right of the breather hole. You can almost see a little crack leading toward the section from the breather hole. This rarer vintage nib of 14k gold writes a smooth fine line, and in its younger days had reliable flex...but now if you try to flex it, you might split the nib in two. Be very careful if you chose to write with it. 11.8cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F

Pre-Owned Pens: 4147: Namiki Pilot: Vanishing Point Decimo Sesenta
Limited to only 400 made, our brown marble Pilot Vanishing Point Decimo Sesenta is a rare treat for modern Pilot pen collectors. A close inspection reveals it is in nearly mint condition. The clickable fountain pen is a novelty that never grows old for us. It comes with its original converter and also uses Pilot cartridges. Click the headline to see its 18k gold nib that was tweaked by nibsmith Gustavo Rodriguez. We find it writes a firm, fine line with a little feedback. Very responsive. 14cm.
