I've started to acquire and restore some Wearever pens. with a minimum of work I figure people can get the feel of a vintage pen for $15 or $20 or so. (Esterbrooks, although also excellent pens are getting pretty pricy for anything in decent condition.)
They clean up and write quite nicely. I did find one pen whose nib was labelled as "flex", although it was definitely on the stiff side of flex!
Some of the ones I have are in mint condition as they were part of a salesman's sample kit. One is a mini-combo that is really cute and works very well. the sac is still pliable and because it's a mini I can use it for a day or so, use up the ink load, flush to clean and refill with another color.
I would like to learn more about these pens and the manufacturer, beyond simply that they were a cheap pen and prone to be thrown away rather than repaired.
Does anyone have any suggestion about where to find that history or even people to speak with about the Wearever brand. There was one link in another post (weareverpens.com - I think) but clicking on it simple took me to Verizon page with no current site link.
Any help or suggestions are very much appreciated.
Thanks to all.
