Hello all
did a brief review on a CS 479, it is a nice classic black.
Hope my hand writing is legible.

Oh, very nice!

I love the Universal and Scribe pens, because they are elegant yet relatively low-priced. They are also great as daily writers.

Thanks for the nice purple review! I especially like the drawing of the cap : ))

I bought my CS 479 last year purely on whim, but it has turned out to be a great pen. The silver-coloured trim is in excellent condition with no brassing, unlike its more expensive stable mates from this era, which generally seem to be heavily brassed. The nib is a broad 14k gold stub and writes wet, but is very smooth. The black, chased plastic is very attractive and complements the flattop-styling. Bottom line, it's a great pen to look at and a great pen to write with.
