Hello guys

yesterday i bought this Sheaffer VFM so as always ill review it in a simple way!
i bought it for 17$ so the price is good
the pen comes with a Steel M nib without any styling on it just the word SHEAFFER and the letter M on it so nothing interesting, the pen looks nice and simple i bought the silver one since i have the Pilot Metropolitan in Black and i didnt find other colors other than Black and Silver, nice cigare shape with a small ring on the section that says Sheaffer three times.., the pen is made from metal but still got a nice weight, the section is made from a glossy plastic material the a silver grip ring if i may call it like that, the Nib is pretty smooth for a steel nib its really great.
overall the pen is really a great writer and for the price its better than a lot of 100$ FPs, one of my daily writers for sure along with the Pilot Metropolitan and my P45s.

The only serious complaint I have about it is the single int'l short cartridge limitation.  It's interesting that you could only find black and silver-- there's a LOT of others:

...of course, you might also think you're lucky to have missed this one.  :thumbup:

But some of those er...*BRIGHT* Sheaffer colors End Up being worth several times what the same pen in Blue or Black is worth. IF you'll hold on to them awhile.
