Old Sheaffer Fountain Pens


Inside this field is one thing We stumbled upon on Ebay. It includes a NOS (that’s New Old inventory) Sheaffer Cadet fountain pen. Therefore, NOS the white lettering printed on human body is still visible.

We don’t mean to gloat but I don’t usually score the nice discounts on Ebay and this time, I strike the motherlode!

The Sheaffer Cadet range had been offered for around decade when you look at the 50s and to the early 60s and featured the replaceable nib units comparable to their rival, Esterbrook. The nibs had extra atmosphere holes on the underside and were called “Tip Dip” nibs. They certainly were the entry level, educational class pens and were offered as the Cadet that was all plastic therefore the Craftsman which had a metal cap. Pen Hero has actually a beneficial article towards history of this pen.

The model I won on Ebay is burgundy with a typical M1 method nib product. It's a pneumatic filler which uses a plunger to fill. Incredibly, it still works closely with its original sac.

Shown overhead may be the plunger part towards the top using ink reservoir in the centre. There clearly was a hole at the conclusion of the reservoir that the plunger pushes to squash within the sac to generate the cleaner to pull ink up. It seems a little more high tech compared to the lever fillers but its basically the same method.

The Cadet isn't a large pen. Its 5.25″ lengthy capped and 4.5″ long uncapped. The limit will publish producing an extended length of 5.75″. Your body for the pen is an appropriate diameter for my arms, maybe not too cumbersome for my small arms. It weighs in at in, fully laden with ink at 13 gms, which for me is ideal — in there using Kaweco Sport. Nicely balanced but light.

The major boon for this whole acquisition was that I also discovered a practically complete set of the nib devices offered when it comes to Cadet and Craftsmen pencils — additionally brand-new and unused — including a stub and a flexible. Among tubes was branded as a flexible nib but really included a M1 medium nib so someone need swapped out their nibs on the way and place the medium inside tube for safe keeping.

These are perhaps not my best writing examples, without a doubt. I wanted to see how each had written but was brief punctually. Predicated on my research, the codes in the nibs help to make clear what each is meant to be. The G is actually for Gregg, a stiff shorthand nib, F suggests that a nib is flexible, X is actually for extra fine and M is moderate. The one that left me personally scratching my head ended up being the SM1, it was an extremely damp nib, perhaps not versatile and type of wide but I can’t figure out what the code means suggest. Stub medium?

I didn't take the nibs off the cards to evaluate since I already had a method to try and so I didn’t test how the fine performed compared to the XF and M but We bet it will also be a popular. I assume I’ll must start looking to get more Cadets and Craftsmen pencils and so I can use all nibs.

I think my favorite nibs with this pen will be the method, the extra fine and Gregg shorthand. Sadly, the stub is a bit too large because of this left-hander to use easily. The good versatile is fun and can need a bit more practice to utilize really. It is extremely damp therefore I most likely need to make use of a better paper with-it.
