SU065 Summit No. S.130. (Soft Medium)

Date: c1940s

Size: Length - 137mm capped - 165mm posted.

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.
