For Sale – Some Sheaffers

Update: These pens have all been sold.

Sheaffers for Sale

It’s time to make some painful cuts to my accumulation. It’s time to pass some beautiful Sheaffers along to people who will use them. These are Sheaffers I don’t use despite them being terrific pens. The Crests, Snorkel and Targa are too thin for me to use comfortably for extended periods, while the PFM I is a duplicate and I’m keeping the better color.

Boxes and paperwork are not included. Converters are included for pens that use a converter, see the listing for the type of converter that is included. Converters are recent purchases and probably don’t match the style of the original converter.

Shipping in the U.S. is $7.90 (small flat rate box) for as many pens as will fit in the box unless otherwise noted. Payment is via PayPal Goods & Services and ships only to addresses in the PayPal payment. Sorry, no international shipping for these pens. U.S. based forwarding services are OK as long as the U.S. address is in your PayPal payment.

Prices are firm, although multiple pen purchases won’t increase shipping costs as long as they fit in the box. Plus I’ll take 5% off the pen prices if you purchase more than one pen at the same time.

The first firm “I want it” gets the pen and I’ll send a PayPal invoice. Contact me using the contact form on this page, or email me at ray[@]fpquest.com (remove the brackets).

Fountain Pen Quest Trail Log – August 11, 2019

Sailor Pro Gear Regency Stripe posted on eagle pen stand

Well now, it’s been nearly a month since my last Trail Log post. You may have seen some (or all) these links since some date back a few weeks.

My own fountain pens got consistent, although low use. The Vanishing Point with a XXXF nib went dry and I immediately popped in a new Pilot Black cartridge. My Fisher of Pens Hermes went dry about two weeks ago and then sat waiting to be cleaned. I gave it a quick flush to remove any dried ink and loaded a Peliken Edelstein Aventurine cartridge. The remaining water makes the first bits of ink a little thin. Lastly, I added the Sailor Pro Gear Regency Stripe to my rotation (pictured above). I loaded it with a Sailor Blue-Black ink cartridge. It has an extra fine nib.

My Newton Eastman and Pelikan M805 Stresemann went dry and were put back in storage after cleaning.

Rounding out my currently inked pens are:
* A Kaweco Brass Sport (EF) with Montblanc Petite Prince Red Fox.
* A Montblanc Meisterstück Ultra Black LeGrand (Oblique Medium) with Montblanc Bordeaux.
* A Sailor Pro Gear KOP (M) with R & K Blau-Schwarz LE.

I’m continuing to thin my accumulation. I’m going through and trying to pick a small group of core pens. Of course, “small” should probably be “smaller”. I’m not sure how many people would consider 30 to be small. I hope to have more pens listed for sale soon.
