Received this Sheaffer ‘No Nonsense’ vintage pen. Unsure of the manufacture date. Also. Never used one before. With an Italic Medium nib that is a wider writing experience than my favourite Osmiroid Italic Mediums. It was a very nice price too. Won for £4.99 on eBay. In good condition and it wrote straight away.
Loaded a basic cartridge of a smaller length than the Skrip cartridges it needs. I’ll buy some as soon as possible and will try out the promise to myself of refilling the cartridges with bottled Sheaffer Ink when they are empty. I read here online that once the slightly longer Skrip cartridge is housed in the pen barrel, you simply screw the inherent nib and holder back into the barrel. Then the cartridge connects safely. Skrip look to be 5 cm long as opposed to standard 4cm approx. standard cartridges. Takes a quick two half turns of the nib housing and it’s tight and in place.
Wrote these meanderings above as usual when I try out my old and newly bought pens and different inks. Once a decent journal is in place then an ordered recording system will begin. Good fun writing with this one. Written on the usual heavy duty wallpaper lining paper.
