Maybe I've missed something but I'm familiar with J pens (and predecessors), Safari's, M2's (which I just saw a 1960 ad which called them "new"), and a few other oddities, but I don't remember the K pens. 

 

From 1956 ad.

Is this really a CX-100? It looks like the cap screws on. But the clip is too short.

The K pens are just one of the two Deluxe lines.  See the bottom half of this page: http://www.esterbrook.net/deluxe.shtml

I knew I should have read more closely. Thanks.
