For Sale: Gate City Pens

The photos in this post are all current. Feel free to contact me with any questions, although the first firm “I want it” gets the pen. The pens were cleaned just before the photos so the photos show water in the barrels.

If you’re interested, reach me using [ray [@] fpquest.com] or contact form here.

U.S. shipping is $7.50 for “just the pen” shipments. See the listing for shipping on pens with a box included.

International shipping is available but very expensive. You can contact me for the cost, but even the low-cost countries start above $27. I require insurance & tracking for all international shipments.

Selling it because the wide nib isn’t for me and the pen has been in a pen case, unused, for nearly 4 years.

 

Franklin-Christoph Model 20 Marietta, Tiger Red, Medium Steel nib – $95 (SOLD)

Kaweco AL Sport, Black Stonewashed, Extra Fine Steel nib – $65 (SOLD)

Kaweco AL Sport Black Stonewashed

The pen is in excellent cosmetic and writing condition. (My review) No converter or paperwork. I will include a Kaweco tin, although it’s unlikely to be the original for this pen. Does not include the box that was pictured in the review, Selling it because the pen hasn’t been used in nearly four years. I always pass it over for the Brass Sport (reviewed earlier today).

Waterman Carene Deluxe, Silver Plate, 18K Gold Medium Nib – $60 (SOLD)

Waterman Carene DeluxeCosmetically this pen is fair to good (no deep scratches, chips or broken pieces). There is a scratch/blemish on the barrel. There’s also discoloration around/under the clip that I couldn’t polish out with a non-abrasive cloth. I couldn’t photograph these since the pen is so reflective. Visible in the photo is a general discoloration. It looks like it might be oil from my fingers, but it’s not. The pen does write perfectly, Converter included. No box or paperwork.
