Is there a "place" on FPN where the "history" of capless pens is discussed, or a brief history of attempts at making a "good" capless pen? C. S.

Hi Charles, et al,

Are there any capless pens aside from the V.P.? :unsure:

Yes, Lamy Dialog 3.


Anyone owning three or more working pens is in no position to disparage choices by others, so cheer up and enjoy your pens. :)

Hi

I have interested capless pen from the 40's. It's an A.N.Andrews 4th Dimension. It includes an integrated ink shutoff when you close the pen.

It's sort of impractical because it hangs in your pocket point down, so I feel compelled to use a pocket protector.

It has the air of prototype to me, I've seen no other.

Cheers

Joe

Wow! That's amazing. The cap looks like it may have been inspired by the Eversharp Skyline.

Yes, it looks inspired by the skyline, with the clip that goes over the clear Lucite jewel that magnifies the name inside the barrel.

It's a kind of bulb filler, actuated by a little red Lucite handle that you flip up and push a couple of times.

Cheers

Joe
