I just bought what to my eyes appears to be a Snorkel fountain pen, but am not sure what it really is. As of this moment the pen is awaiting to be shipped to me, so I have no way of verifying my suspicion. The seller just stated that the pen was an "Old Sheaffer Canada 14k Nib Suction Fountain Pen", but looking at the Snorkel photo thread on this forum, it looks quite similar in shape and nib. If this is jot the case, can you help me identify the pen and tell me if I got a good deal at $60? Thanks!
I found this amongst an eBay lot, and decided to clean it up to use it. It puts down a nice fine/medium line. It could be anything from a Skripset to an Imperial, so I wanted to see what people thought this pen actually is. I'm leaning towards a Skripset, because the cartridge is a very tight fit in the barrel and it doesn't look like a Sheaffer converter would fit (if they made one for this pen). Also - I assume this Triumph nib should not be straightened out? It writes very smooth for it being a very firm nib. Thanks in advance.
