Ariel Kullock Oversize "Parker 51"
pen643 pen643

sb471 - Ariel Kullock makes custom pens in Buenos Aires.  This example is a gorgeous oversize version of a Parker 51.  The cap is sliver (not as tarnished as it appears) with a silver-colored arrow clip. The barrel is a translucent burgundy - gorgeous!  Aerometric filler.  A big, somewhat weighty pen. Medium nib, leaning toward broad by 51 standards.  5 7/8", 150 mm. 

Price: $300 with free shipping in the US

Cross Apogee - Titian Red
pen643 pen643

Pen1405 - The Cross Apogee is gorgeous, with a rich iridescent red lacquer coating to the barrel. Cartridge/converter.  The nib is 18 Kt, extra-fine. Because the barrel is metal, it's a heavy, sturdy pen. This one was mine and was used on my desk for several years. Despite that, it looks new. With box and papers. Just time to rotate! 5 5/8", 142 mm.

Price: $100 with free shipping in the US

Pelikan 400NN Tortoise
dbc11 dbc11

SB468 - Medium tortoise Pelikan 400NN. The barrel has excellent transparency. There's a fine crack in the cap that requires a loupe to see.  I doubt it will affect function because of the metal cap band, but it's there.  Piston filler. Light wear. The nib is a fine with just a hint of flex.  5", 126 mm. 

Price: $180 with Free Shipping in the US

Sheaffer Dip-Tip Cadet

Price: $75 with free shipping in the US

Parker Duofold Junor Jade Set
pen643 pen643

Pen1877 - This is a Parker Duofold Junior Streamlined set in jade plastic.  The pen has the typical brownish discoloration. The pencil shows what the jade green really looked like.  Fine nib. There's a little distortion to the hard rubber insert on the cap - not bad, but it's there.   4 1/2", 114 mm. 

Price: $125 with free shipping in the US

English Parker Duofold NS
pen643 pen643

sb460 - This is a Parker Duofold NS that would be a great everyday pen. It has a smooth medium (on the fine side) nib. The nib has been bent and straightened back into place before it reached me.  It writes very well - I'm impressed. There's some brassing of the arrow tip and light wear to the barrel. Chocolate brown in color. 5 1/4", 133 mm. 

Price: $120 with free shipping in the US

Hoover Deluxe
ha42 ha42 

sb461 - This Hoover looks like it was made of the same celluloid as a Parker Vacumatic. Hoover's were Danish and probably made by Olsen. This one has a medium Warranted 14 Ct nib with oodles of flex. Very small embossed name "C Bunk". Good Hoover Deluxe imprint. Very little wear. 5 3/8", 136 mm.

pen643 pen643

Pen1819 - Well preserved black Vacumatic with average transparency.  Fine-XF Vacumatic nib.  There's a bit of wear on the imprint so that you can't read a date code. Fully restored. 5", 127 mm

Pilot Elite - Long/Short Set
pen643 pen643

Pen1887 - This is a modern Japanese pen/pencil set. The pen is still labelled. It's a cartridge-converter filler and very suitable for every day use.  The pen is longer when posted than when in the pocket. The pencil is also an Elite, but the clip is a mismatch, and the color of gold plating is lighter on the pencil, so I can't say they completely belong together. Some loss of plating to the fine steel nib. Closed: 4 13/16", 122 mm. Posted: ~6".

Price: $65 with free shipping in the US

Bankier - Flex nib
ha42 ha42ha42 

sb463 - I have no knowledge of who Bankier really is, but this is a well made piston filler that looks like it should be German.  Nice and flexible two-tone 14 Kt fine nib. Comes with an attractive leather/leather-look case.  5 1/4" and 132mm. Excellent condition, although the palladium plating on the nib is a bit irregular. An ideal regular user for someone who likes flex nibs.

Metal Overlay Button Filler

Green Marbled Miller 658
ha42 ha42
