Georges,

Congrats on the new pen purchase! I certainly can relate to that feeling of owning a new pen. Good to know the nib can be flipped over and written with the other side. Overall, I really like the design of these two tone vintage nibs. These Sheaffer balance pens are hard to find at a bargain price. You're so lucky to receive this pen as a wonderful gift from a friend. All in all, thanks for the pen review.

Nice review of a beautiful pen and such a lovely gift. It seems to have all the virtues of vintage elegance and everyday useability.
"The cultured man is the man whose interior consciousness is forever obstinately writing down, in the immaterial diary of his psyche's sense of life, every chance aspect of every new day that he is lucky enough to live to behold!" - John Cowper Powys
