Price: $399.99
Vintage Pens: 4215: Wahl-Eversharp: Oversized Woodgrain
Flex with the best of them with our oversized Wahl Woodgrain pen. Its 14k gold #5 nib is nearly WET NOODLE flexi! It writes a very thin extra-fine line and quickly flexes to around 1.6mm wide! You'll see this vintage pen is in stunning condition. We restored it with a new ink sac. No cracks or scratches mar the surface of this pen. It it wasn't for a couple little spots where the finish has faded a little, we would think this classic Wahl pen was fresh off the assembly line. If you aren't used to flexi nib, it might take a little while to let the pen train use about how best to use it. 13.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4214: Parker: 51
What tastes better during the holidays than a cup of cocoa? Well, add a little flavor to your writing with a slightly rarer cocoa Parker 51. We think this model dates to 1951, and its original aerometric filler still remains in great working order. No dents in deep scratches mar its Lustraloy cap, and there are only a couple small scratches on the hood of the pen. Its barrel only as light wear. You'll write a juicy, wet medium line with its 14k gold nib. Some people might even consider the nib a broad. 13.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4050: Parker: 51
Parker 51 fountain pens are arguably the most universally loved vintage pens on the market. Released in the United States in 1941 and named 51 because they were 10 years ahead of their time, these pens revolutionized fountain pen design. The hooded nibs and massive ink collector system contained within them helped to keep the nibs always wet and ready to write. This burgundy model with a "lustraloy" cap came out some time in the 1950s. It sports the "newer" aerometric filler, a simple, mess-free squeeze-bulb design with a "pliglass" ink sac. (silicone) The amazing things about these ink sacs was that they were designed to last 30 years, but most of them--such as this one--still work after 60 years! Under the hood is a 14k gold nib. You'll write a smooth extra-fine to fine line with it. Mostly just light wear from use. Definitely ready for more active service. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4213 Sheaffer Lifetime Flat Top
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 4213: Sheaffer: Lifetime Flat Top
Back in the 1920s a new technology came along to revolutionize business: carbon paper. To make the most of it with a fountain pen, a firm nib was needed. Sheaffer made some of the firmest nibs of the era to press through and make duplicates and triplicates of documents easily. Our Sheaffer Lifetime flat top model is a senior oversized vintage pen. We restored it with a new ink sac. It has some pretty heavy wear from use, most easily seen in the brassing of the cap band. There are no cracks, but the cap and barrel show wear. The clip, also, is a little loose. Its original 14k gold nib writes a smooth, extra-fine line. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4202 Wahl-Eversharp Skyline
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 4202: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline
If semi-flex nibs are your thing, pay close attention to this Eversharp Skyline. Its 14k gold nib writes fine to just over 1mm wide! Fully restored with a new ink sac, it still has its full-length breather tube inside the sac. These pens were originally supposed to be able to handle the pressure changes inside an airplane. It was a cool gimmick, but it doesn't seem to have worked all that well. In spite of the great nib, the barrel shows some deep scratching around the middle of the barrel and moderate wear from the cap threading on to the barrel. Click the headline for close-ups, but there also is a 2.5mm chip in the gold plating on the back of the cap. The dome topper spins but seems to be holding on to the cap. Probably not your best knock around pen, but a great writer at your desk. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4194: Parker: Duofold
Big Red Parker Duofolds were all the rage in the roaring 1920s. This is the desk pen model. We have restored its filling system with a new ink sac. However, it isn't difficult to see that this pen is heavily worn. Although you can't see it, the pen also is engraved with the name F. Eileen Metz. In spite of all of its discoloration, scratches and wear, there are no cracks, and the pen is in good working order—ready for many more years of loyal service. Its 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback. 18.5cm.
Vintage Pens: 4192 Parker Desk Pen
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4192: Parker: Desk Pen
Striking us right between the eyes on this Parker desk pen were its fantastic pearl-and-black design with only light discoloration and its SEMI-FLEX nib. No wet noodle, this 14k gold nib still flexes from extra-fine to about 1mm. Any flex in a Parker nib from this era seems positively strange, but it is a nice and reasonably smooth nib! We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Its tail taper still gleams black. Only light wear on the barrel and light chocolate hazing on the section. Its imprint is clear, but it is not listed as a Duofold, and it appears to have a 1935 date code on the barrel. The nib is not a Duofold nib, either, and its inkfeed looks more like a Vacumatic's than a Christmas-tree feed. Click the headline for close-ups. 19cm.
Vintage Pens: 4191 Conklin Desk Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 4191: Conklin: Desk Pen
In need of a good home, we have a Conklin Desk Pen that looks a little homely with its bent tail and barrel discolorations and scars, but it also sports a SEMI-FLEX nib that goes from extra-fine to roughly 1.5mm wide! This 14k gold nib has some feedback, as most XF nibs do. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Its lever is working well, but the lever pin is rusty looking, and we don't know how long it will last. (We don't have any pins to replace it. The pen is sold as is.) 19cm.
