USING FOUNTAIN PENS
Fountain pen writing is a unique experience. Vintage pens use liquid ink and split metal fountain pen tips or
Nibs. The ink is stored internally in antique pens either in a rubber ink sack, ink converter or in later collectible pen models,
a plastic ink cartridge. The liquid ink flows through a grooved section to the fountain pen nib. The free flowing ink results in a
smooth writing experience that cannot be duplicated with ball point pens or pencils.
Start or add to your vintage pen collection with this beautiful Antique Sheaffers Fountain Pen. Fountain pen collecting is a great hobby rich in history.

SCHAEFFER'S HISTORY- Shaeffer has manufactured fountain pens down to the present day. The original lever-filler mechanism remained in use through the end of the 1940s, though a sacless plunger design was introduced in the early 1930s. In 1949 Sheaffer adopted the "Touchdown" pneumatic-filling mechanism for its top-line fountain pens. A development of the Touchdown design was the Snorkel, which added a small extendable tube underneath the nib to avoid the need to dip the nib into ink when operating the filler plunger. The last Snorkel pen was the oversize "Pen For Men", a fat-bodied model introduced in 1959 with the then-new "Inlaid Nib" which has since featured on all Sheaffer's top-of-the-range pens.
From the 1950s Sheaffer pens were designed to accept ink cartridges or a converter to allow the use of bottled ink. The Targa was a popular premium model which came in around 80 different finishes and two sizes (classic and slim). Current premium pens in the range include the Valor and the Legacy series, all of which retain the inlaid nib.
