These are pretty good desk pens.

It looks great and you are right, it has character.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

i have the set that graced my grandfather's desk, a fountain pen that looks just like yours with a 14k nib and a ballpoint on a solid black stone base.  the label on the bottom says it's a J15/5700.  my earliest pen-related memory is watching him write ledger entries for the business with the fountain pen in green ink.
