I got my hands on a Hicks dip pen recently: a mother-of-pearl with a sliding gold mount. It's got a crack in it so I need to take it to my jeweler. The nib, however, is very nice. It's similar to the nib on my Tiffany pen: semiflex, but producing a graceful line and very pleasant to handle.
I keep forgetting I have three of them. I should ask Mr. Zorn if he's made any progress on my little Cartier.
Anything to keep me from buying another one.

Update: I got another one: a somewhat-battered GF ringtop with what looks like a nice little stub nib. It has some interesting decoration on it, and I got it for (relatively) cheap.
We'll see how it cleans up.

Hello,

 

I just got this pen/ pencil. It has William S. Hicks New York No 4 NIB.

Anyone know anything about this pen/ pencil?

Is the entire thing Hicks or just the NIB?

I don't see any other markings
