Sheaffer Cadet Tip-Dip
I have been slowly and methodically collecting and falling in love with this line of pens. Some of you may call them the poor man's Craftsman, but to me, they are just incredible pens. The have a touchdown filler with a sweet hole on the underside of the nib to draw the ink in.
I have a few F1's (fine's) but this one is a Medium that make me happy. There's a 1 beside the M in this one. I believe the dates are somewhere around the 1950's and I think they sold for around $3.00 at the time. Don't hate the player...but I actually bought this for less than that the other week.
Sleek! They made a version of this called the 23 that was gold and rumor has is a little flexy. Still on the lookout for one of those.
I am not afraid to use this as a daily writer and I do on occasion. Inks up easy, writes smooth and looks good sitting on an avocado. Gotta go, Iron Chef is on.
Thanks for all the great feedback over the weekend. I appreciate the comments and emails, keep them coming.
