Good day, pen friends.

Today I bring you pen number five, this one from a different customer, @gcmehojah: a second generation (~1945) Sheaffer Triumph Statesman.

This is a Vacuum-Fil pen with the distinct second generation striated celluloid section below the nib. I find these very much aesthetically pleasing, and I'm saddened to say I do not yet own a second gen Triumph!

Speaking of striations, the barrel clarity is commendable. The ambered striations paired with the marine green celluloid give an almost Christmas-y contrast to the pen. I'm a big fan.

Note that, while in the pictures there is a bit of tarnish on the clip, I cleaned it up after this photoshoot. I was simply too lazy to break out the lightbox and take new pictures.

Length capped: 125mm
Length uncapped: 109mm
Barrel diameter: 11.5mm

Good day, pen friends.

Today, I bring you pens that are not my own, but belong to @ToLoveLu: an Arnold combo pen, a burgundy Sheaffer Touchdown Tuckaway Statesman, a marine green Sheaffer Balance Petite ringtop, and a very special Sheaffer Triumph Crest. We'll be looking at all four in separate posts, due to the Instagram description character limit.

Lastly, we have our special Sheaffer Triumph Crest. This is an early Crest model, with the white dot located at the tip of the vacuum-fil knob, or blind cap, instead of the 1/10 14k gold filled cap, as was more common on later models, due to the early difficulties in mounting the white dot on metal caps. There's not much terribly special about this pen until you look at the nib. This is an extraordinarily rare example of a flexible Triumph nib; this pen writes line variation starting in the extra-fine range at 0.3mm, and flexing to a stagging 1.5mm. I'm constantly amazed by Sheaffer nibs, and this one is no exception. Smooth, not too wet when not flexing, and able to flex for quite a bit of writing before it railroads, thanks to the many-finned Triumph feed. Well, if I don't stop now, I'll keep talking about this nib for ages, so let's move on: The barrel transparency is pretty decent, ambered but still plenty clear, and the visulated section is still very clear but slightly stained green, giving an odd contrast to the orangish barrel striations. The vacuum-fil plunger is smooth and strong, the pen writes amazingly, and I am so, so, incredibly, insanely, indescribably envious.
Length capped: 130.2mm
Length uncapped: 111.6mm
Barrel diameter: 12.1mm

We'll be looking at all four in separate posts, due to the Instagram description character limit.

Third in line is the marine green Sheaffer Balance Petite ringtop. These were offered from 1929-1934, and are quite uncommon today. The Petite was the smallest size Balance offered, and they came in both clip and ringtop models. There were actually a handful of Balance pens sold which had both the clip and ringtop cap on one pen, but these combo cap models are exceedingly rare. This lever-filling Petite bears a sizable monotone serialized nib, which writes, as one would expect, smooth and wet. As an interesting piece of trivia, the third row of the barrel stamp reads "PAT. D-78,795"; if one looks up that patent number, they'll find a fountain pen patented by Craig R. Sheaffer, the son of founder Walter Sheaffer. I've fitted a pure silicone sac in this pen, due to marine green celluloid being known for discoloring from latex offgassing over time. It's important to make sure your sacs are pure silicone, as a lot of old silicone sacs contain PVC, which is very much harmful to pens.

Number two: this is a burgundy Tucky. These are nothing new to you, my fellow Sheaffer lovers: an open nib Statesman model, with a visulated section and early fat touchdown filling system. The nib is large and sports just a bit of plating loss, and writes smooth and wet. There's really not much to say about this one; I've gone over the history of the Tuckaway in previous posts. Go check those out for more info!

Tales from the workbench: Ever have a Sheaffer Triumph nib unscrew from the nib collar? I have. This is one of those times. Typically, this is extremely difficult to set right, as there is very little real estate to grab onto when it happens; barely 1mm of the nib collar protrudes from the section.

I recently read online about a person who had unscrewed their nib collar by whittling down a bamboo chopstick and shoving it in there and turning it. After entirely too much searching, I sourced some appropriate chopsticks, and set to work. It took about thirty seconds. Completely blew my mind! I'll remember this trick for sure.

Good day, pen friends.

Today I bring you one of @continuimatt's pens. This is a jade green Sheaffer Flat-Top, and it is large. Enormous. Definitely an oversize pen. Judging by the white dot, serialized nib, feed design, humped clip, and barrel imprint, I would confidently date this pen at 1927.

Sheaffer introduced their "radite" (pyroxylin plastic, or more commonly, "celluloid") pen materials in 1924, debuting with the Black, Pearl & Black, and Jade Green colors. They would expand with many more colors and finishes with the introduction of the Balance pen in 1929.

Some notes on this pen: it exhibits very little of the discoloration commonly found in early radite pens. Both the barrel and the cap are vibrantly green. Unfortunately, the nib sports a hairline crack, although this does not in any way affect the pen's performance. This is due to the section shrinking with age.

More on the nib: This is a very large serialized 14K Lifetime nib, with the serial number also engraved on the backside of the nib. This was actually to combat grey market sales where the serial number was being ground off the nib (Daniel Kirchheimer has a great article on this and more, titled "Look What The Katz Drug In"). With the filling system restored, this pen now writes very well, laying down a nice fine line. It is back in the hands of the owner and is back in use nearly 100 years after it was first turned.

Good day, pen friends.

Today I bring you another customer's pen: a beautiful reverse trim Sheaffer Triumph. Normally, you only find chrome trim on Grey Pearl pens, but Sheaffer did turn a few jet black Triumph pens the chrome trim. These are very uncommon and beautiful to find.

Another interesting feature I noticed during restoration is a short black cylinder which fits over the plunger rod, floating freely along its length. I believe this to be an early attempt at an agitator.

The nib on this pen, I would call a stubby broad. It's nice and juicy with a small sweet spot. The chrome trim is in excellent condition as well, uncommon for pens of this age.

This Triumph is now on its way back to its owner, after far too long of a wait. I hope he enjoys it as much as I did!

Good day, pen friends.

Today, I bring you another one of @continuimatt's pens, which I've restored for him. This is a black Sheaffer Cadet Tip-Dip.

In 1952, with the advent of the Snorkel, Sheaffer introduced their "Tip-Dip" pens, which had special feeds designed to, as the name implied, only require the very tip to be dipped in ink when filling. This allowed one to fill their Touchdown pens without needing to wipe the nib and section, similar to the convenience of the Snorkel.

The Cadet was introduced as an entry-level Tip-Dip pen, alongside the Craftsman (Sheaffer kind of had a thing for reusing names). Both featured steel nibs, coded for their writing style; this nib is coded F1 for Fine.
