  1. My first vintage Sheaffer pen was a Triumph 550GT pen, that needless to say, wasn't equipped with a Triumph nib. But it was thanks to this pen that I found out about Sheaffer's legendary conical nibs. It's been a while since I've been under the impression that all Sheaffer conical nibs were denominated Triumph but just yesterday I got a Sheaffer Stylist MkII pen that sports a nib that is a conical one but seems to be referenced as "Skripsert". Can anyone clarify what defines one or the other nib? Thanks in advance!

    Lady Sheaffer Nib And Feed Alignment ?

    I have a Lady Sheaffer Skripsert clipless pen that I I'm getting working again. It' a paisley black and gold with a triumph like nib that screws on. Somehow when cleaning it, tuning the nib, and making a syringe converter for it, the screw on nib no longer aligns with the feed when it is tight. See attached picture. If I loosen the nib about 1/2 turn, it lines up and the ink flow is ok, but there are still slow starts and skips from time to time.. How are these nibs designed and how I can get the nib and feed aligned when the nib is tight? In another thread, someone said you have to remove a plug in the back but I don't see how and am afraid to force it without knowing the design. I've also included a picture of the converter I made out of a syringe. I tried gluing a syringe tip into a pilot squeeze converter that comes with the Metropolitans and it worked but there was pressure and it got stuck in barrel. I think this is when the nib and feed got into misalignment. A sheaffer standard converter does not work. A short standardconverter's hole seems a little big and doesn't provide a tight seal. Are there any modern ones that do? Thanks in advance Jim Bunch
  3. Hi Sheaffer's lovers, I recently noted a marked difference in style (and apparent quality) between two Lady Sheaffer's that I own, the number VI Paisley Periwinkle model. Attached are some photos in which I tried to give the best sense of the differences. One pen is slightly duller, and the pattern seems to be composed of "wave" forms with pointed crests and round troughs; the other pen seems to be brighter, but of less accurate milling perhaps, with more symmetric "sine wave" forms composing the pattern. The nibs also seem to have some *very* subtle differences; the nib on the left belongs to the pen of ostensibly lower quality, and the one on the right to the pen of higher quality. The nib on the right has an extra set of lines on either side of the registered trademark symbol, and the entire hallmark is shifted upward, with the slit a bit shorter than the one of the left. Would anyone care to indulge my obsessive attention to detail? My overall impression is that the slightly duller pen is of higher quality. I wonder if this represented an improvement, or a decline in manufacture over the run of this model? (sorry I haven't cleaned up the nibs yet; that gunk really is all just ink) Cheers! Matt

    My First Ever Sheaffer Pen

    My review for the new/old Sheaffer Skripsert pen & pencil set I received today, written with the pen & pencil on copy paper. My only problem now with the pen, which is a lot of fun to write with, is that the Sheaffer press-bar converter I put into it is now stuck inside the barrel and comes off with it when I unscrew it off the nib & feed. After I use up the ink , I'll have to find a way to pull it out (suggestions, anyone?) and just refill the empty cartridge that came inside the pen.

    Sheaffer Xxiii... Any Bright Ideas?

    Really appreciate any advice here. I am trying to replace a pen that my mother was given as a child and that was stolen from my pencil case when I was at school when I borrowed it. Through searching the Internet, I have identified the fountain pen as the white and gold lady sheaffer xxiii skripsert petit point. Can any one offer any advice to where I might find one of these to buy? Many thanks
  6. I need to replace broken nib on Sheaffer Skripsert XVI. Could someone tell if shortened triumph nibs on cartidge imperial pens can be used for this purpose? http://penhero.com/PenGallery/Sheaffer/Pics/SheafferTriumphNibs06.jpg
