Vintage Pens: 3157: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline
Looking for the vintage pen with a little bit something extra? Check out the rare wide band on our Eversharp Skyline. This pen is beautiful, too, in its deep dark blue and red-and-green striped cap. No brassing, no cracks. Its only major flaw is the name "John B Maljan" written on the side of the barrel. You can see it on the bottom of the pen in the photo. It really doesn't diminish from the incredible smooth medium nib with which you write. It is a nice 14k gold nib. This vintage pen has been restored with a new ink sac. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3158: Wahl-Eversharp: Symphony
Building on the success of the Eversharp Skyline fountain pen, the Eversharp Symphony maintains an even more modern streamlined look in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Its polished steel cap is nicely accentuated by the golden cap band and clip. The vintage pen has been restored with a new ink sac. No cracks or deep scratches mar the surface of the cap or barrel, just light wear. Click the headline to see its original 14k gold nib that writes a very nice fine line with a hint of feedback. It also has a teensy bit of flex! 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3143 Waterman Commando
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $75.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3143: Waterman: Commando
As no fountain pen wears underwear, you could say they all go commando, but this is actually a Waterman Commando. The second world war inspired the model name, no doubt. We replaced its ink sac, and it is in good working order. It is a surprisingly attractive pen with only some light wear from use. If you look extra super closely, you will spy a hairline crack only a millimeter long coming out of the clip bolt area in back of the cap. The yellow tail bauble is free of fractals and krazing. The size 4ish 14k gold Waterman nib writes a fine to .9mm wide line with semi-flex ability. It catches just a tad at the top of ascenders. 12.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3156 Wahl-Eversharp 5th Avenue
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 3156: Wahl-Eversharp: 5th Avenue
On the avenue...5th Avenue. It feels a little "Easter Parade-y" up in this description box today with our Eversharp 5th Avenue fountain pen. Fully restored, this was really one of the last major pen designs by Eversharp. It borrows heavily from the immensely popular hooded nib of the Parker 51. This vintage pen has light-to-moderate wear but no cracks or deep scratches. It is a slip-cap pen. The 14k gold nib writes a fine-medium line with a little required pressure. The lever is off 90-degrees from the top of the nib. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3154 Esterbrook J-9668
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959

Vintage Pens: 3154: Esterbrook: J-9668
Was there ever a more colorful, convenient and customizable fountain pen of the vintage pen era? Esterbrook pens taught an entire generation of Baby Boomers how to write with an "ink pen." It was among the most requested pens by high schools and business schools because it was affordable, reliable and easily altered with myriad nibs that screwed in and out for various jobs. We restored this Esterbrook J-model pen with a new ink sac. J-model pens were the largest of the Esterbrook line with regard to width/girth. This makes for easier long-term gripping. The steel 9668 nib was considered an upgrade nib and advertised as a medium "general writing" nib. We find this one writes more like a firm but smooth-enough fine point, with possible medium tendencies. The sapphire blue shines through the light to moderate wear. No cracks or deep scratches are to be found. Good imprint. The clip isn't 100% flat against the side of the cap. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3153 Esterbrook J-1550
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 3153: Esterbrook: J-1550
Ho ho ho! Our jolly red Esterbrook J-1550 fountain pen is one elf of a vintage pen. We restored it with a new ink sac. J-model Esterbrooks were the widest bodied Esterbrook of the era. It is a little easier to grip for longer periods without cramping. The great part about Esties is that the nibs unscrew and are interchangeable. This one comes with a steel 1550 nib, which was advertised as an extra-fine "bookkeeping" nib. We find that it writes a surprisingly smooth extra-fine line for a stiff steel nib. The pen does have some wear, although there are no cracks. 12.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3150 Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $399.99
Vintage Pens: 3150: Wahl-Eversharp: Gold Seal
Stunning is our favorite way to describe the still perfect green on this Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal fountain pen from the late 1920s or early 1930s. Fully restored with a new ink sac, it is the senior/oversized model. Discoloration is obvious on this pen, and we show the worst of it in the photo so there are no surprises. No cracks mar the surface of this vintage pen. You can find some brassing on the Greek key design of the cap band and other pieces of trim. Click the headline to see a great close-up of the 14k gold manifold nib. It writes a firm, smooth medium line. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3147 Parker Parkette
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 3147: Parker: Parkette
Parker made exceedingly few lever-fillers in its history. That's what makes this simple Parker Parkette stand out all the more. A sub-brand of Parker, Parkette was still closely affiliated with its parent company. What makes this pen even rarer is that it was made in Canada. You can read it on the barrel and on the nib, which you can see when you click the headline...at least the nib. Defined by black and grey marble look accented by subtle red veins, we have fully restored this vintage pen with a fresh ink sac. Light wear on the cap and barrels, minimal brassing. Its original 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line with a hint of feedback. (American extra fine, not Japanese.) The matching pencil does not seem to be working. Pen measures 12cm capped.
