Just looking for some info about this dip pen my grandmother gave me a while back. I was going to use it for drawing lettering for fun. I know its an Aikin and Lambert no6 Pen. The number 6 is on both the pen and the nib. Thank you for reading my post and I hope to see some informative replies.

Hi folks, I've picked up a nice, shiny BCHR Aikin-Lambert lever filler at auction. The only real oddity is the logo of the Baltimore-based "KNABE" piano company imprinted in green on the top of the cap (See pics, below). According to Wikipedia, this is a version of the logo that came into use around 1904: The imprints on the clip (PAT'D Sept.25.05) and (ALCo) seem pretty common, as soes the engraving on the nib (14KT ALCo). The barrel has no markings at all, and the only marking on the cap is the pictured logo. My question: Does one regard this as a "Knabe" branded pen, as a marketing imprint (for giveaway,) or as a "property of" marker? Any info welcome :-) Thanks, Jonathan
