This is a beautiful Sheaffer Triumph Vac Sovereign II fountain pen and pencil set. The pen has been restored, which included a thorough cleaning, an overhaul of the vacuum filling mechanism, ink flow adjustment, nib tuning, and a gentle hand polish. The pencil has been restored, which included a thorough cleaning, an adjustment of the internal mechanism, new eraser, new lead, and a gentle hand polish.
This is such a beautiful set! Cosmetically, both the pen and pencil are in excellent condition, without any flaws or defects, and only faint surface wear. The imprint is strong. The gleaming Striated Golden Brown celluloid is such a gorgeous material! It has nice transparency, so you can see the ink inside the barrel. The gold-plated trim is very good, without brassing or plating loss. The case is in an average cosmetic condition. This is a medium-sized pen in the Triumph Vac line-up, measuring about 4.8" capped and 0.45" barrel diameter.
Functionally, both pen and pencil are excellent. The pen has a 14k Triumph Fine nib, which writes like a dream. I often recommend the Triumph nib to beginners as this nib is very forgiving of angle, rotation, and pressure. If you've come to the fountain pen hobby from years of using a ballpoint pen, this nib will allow you an easy transition. It is also a great tool in the hands of an experienced writer, and you can even flip it upside down for an extra-fine line (it is designed to be used that way). The filling mechanism works as it should, and the pen holds a lot of ink. The pencil works as it should, as well. Please, visit my store for purchasing information.
