Last month I picked up this very interesting pen on eBay, thanks to a listing posted in the Market Watch forum by OcalaFLGuy. It seems to be a pen made by the Pagliero Pen Company in Italy. http://www.fountainpen.it/Pagliero/en This is one of the pens labeled "Condor." There are no other markings on the pen other than the initials "MS" at the top of the clip. That might mean something else -another pen company? -but the seller thought it was possibly a Pagliero. It certainly has what to me is an Italian design sense, like a Ducati motorcycle.

As you can see it is a piston-type filler. The nib is interesting to me, as the underside seems to look sort of folder-over on itself. I'd welcome other observations and opinions. It writes quite nicely, a wet smooth line between M and B, I think. In size it is just in between the Sheaffer Imperial and PFM pens, but the barrel/nib section is longer than both of them. The last photo includes the Imperial for comparison. The ink is J. Herbin. Perle Noire.

So there it is - if you see one out there, it's a pretty nice pen, take a chance! I paid about $65 US for it including shipping from the UK.

It IS interesting. I sawe pens called ALBA TORINO on eBay that were quite similar. I like the design.
