A very distinguished looking long but quite slim glossy black chased celluloid Summit from I would think the late 1940s. This item is in excellent condition with no damage on it at all that I could spot. The chasing to barrel and cap is in the very popular barleycorn pattern - it seems that this is the standard pattern for Summits - and is deep and crisp with no appreciable wear. The cap has an over-the-top military style pocket clip, chrome plated, and with "SUMMIT" imprinted down the stem. At the cap lip is a single chrome plated cap band. The barrel has a clear but quite shallow imprint running around the top of the barrel. The nib is a relatively large Summit in 14 carat gold and in a medium point. The filling lever, again, chrome plated, long, and quiet thin.
I have fully serviced this pen. The nib writes beautifully - very smooth. It produces a lovely wet medium width line. This is a soft nib and it will produce a little understated line width variation as you write.
Quite an unusual style of pen.
