• Condition and information:
The Imperial Touchdown in solid 925 silver is a sublime pen, probably one of the best designed Sheaffer pens. The pens features a stunning thick diamond mesh deep guilloche pattern over the body cap, stretching from top to bottom. In a way this pen embodies nearly all features that made previous models popular with the customers. This is a typical Sheaffer pen taken to extreme. The pen is large, 137mm and 157mm posted, but very thick at 1.2cm. Since its made out of solid silver it is a very heavy pen, feeling great in the hand, with superb balance and handling. Due to its weight virtually no pressure to the paper is needed, just by gliding the pen over the paper will produce a fine and consistent EF line. The nib is soft, softer than most of these Sheaffer embedded nibs. It has a decent flex, so it will produce amazing writing, from fine line to a B broad and even wider line when press while writing. Embedded nibs are unique to Sheaffer and the 14k gold nib on this pen is no different. The nib is embedded in the front section, and made such as the form factor following the body into the front section ends in the nib. Even though entirely exposed, this makes the nib more sturdy and difficult to damage. Such Sheaffer ’s nibs are thick and more difficult to bend even if dropped. The pen uses the famous touchdown system, where the enclosed bladder creates a small repeating negative pressure simply by pulling the lever in and out, similar action to a bicycle tire pump. It is is very easy to fill and creates minimal mess, one needs only to wipe the front section after submerging it in the bottled ink. The pen has amazing shine and glow, which is difficult to capture in photos.  The pen is in mint condition with minimal signs of use, no dings or scratches. Simply one of the best Sheaffer pens ever made.
