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.

Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $699.99  Was: $799.99
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.

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.

Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $449.99  Was: $499.99
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.
Vintage Pens: 4104 Parker Lucky Curve
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4104: Parker: Lucky Curve
Saving people money during the Great Depression, Parker set out to make a more affordable series of pens. This ringtop model is a rare example of an early plastic they used with a really attractive red pattern. The faint imprint says Parker Lucky Curve, however, on restoring the pen, it doesn't have a Lucky Curve feed. In fact, its feed is missing a couple collector fins. We installed a new ink sac and pressure bar. Click the headline to see the old plier mark damage on the section. Its 14k gold nib writes a very nice extra-fine to fine line...AND it has a little FLEX. Overall, the pen only shows light wear. Unfortunately, there is one more hitch. The new pressure bar forces the button to ride a little higher than it used to, and the streamlined blind cap doesn't seat all the way down properly. You can see it in the photo. 11.5cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4091 Omas Paragon
Filling Mechanism: Rollerball
Era: 1980-present
Price: $399.99  Was: $449.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 4091: Omas: Paragon
Omas Paragon pens are in peak demand, and we think you are going to love this scarlet red rollerball pen. Hardly a trace of wear blemishes the stunning celluloid of this classic Italian pen maker. Ours comes with a working refill, and we are happy to say that it takes Schmidt P8126 refills. So you needn't worry that the pen will never take refills now that Omas is out of business. The layers and depths of its celluloid will captivate you for hours as you write. 14cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 4073: Sheaffer: Balance Abalone
Glittering abalone shell sets inlaid into the ebonite cap and barrel of our oversized Sheaffer Balance Lifetime. As much a piece of jewelry as it is a functional daily writer, and we are happily surprised that the abalone isn't heavily discolored. Unfortunately, the cap and barrel have some deep scratches and obvious wear. No cracks and fully restored with a new ink sac. You will find brassing on the pocket clip and cap band. Its two-tone 14k gold nib writes a firm, extra-fine line with a little feedback. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.9cm capped.
