Sheaffer Touchdown Tuckaway Sentinel Needlepoint Nib

Who do you think makes the smoothest, easiest to use needlepoint nib these days? I honestly don't know, but I do know who did - Sheaffer.

This particular pen is a Touchdown Tuckaway, a small pen when capped, but a full-size pen when posted. A supremely comfortable, well-balanced pen that comes vested with a needlepoint Triumph nib. So what exactly makes this such a great needlepoint nib? It's the design.

The Triumph nib has a slightly upturned tip, and really long times. Sheaffer came up with the design in the 1940s, with the idea of enhancing the pen's usability as a writing instrument. The Triumph nib, as a result of Sheaffer technological prowess, remains one of the smoothest, most forgiving nibs ever made. And, you can turn it upside down for an even thinner, finer line!
