SHEAFFER TUCKAWAY FOUNTAIN PEN

Thought I'd highlight one of my fountain pens. This was my first vintage fountain pen.
I believe this is a 1942 Sheaffer Tuckaway Pen. It was meant to be "tucked-a-way" in your vest pocket.

It has a unique feature of writing fine with it one way and rolling it over to write a little fatter.

It's a fine pen and I'm lucky it still works as most of these pens dried up inside and many like this one can't be repaired too easily!

If you've never written with a nib fountain pen, then you're missing out. Stop by a nice pen store and ask to write with one... but be careful you might just walk out a brand new one and a few hundred dollars less in your wallet!
