Did you ever wonder how those antique Onoto plunger filled pens work?  Now you don't have to wonder any longer.  The Wing Sung 3013 is a plunger fill pen (Wing Sung call it a vacuum filler) that has a very similar mechanism to those old Onoto pens.  You unscrew the barrel end, withdraw the plunger, immerse the nib in ink, and push the plunger back home.  This creates a partial vacuum behind the piston inside the barrel, which, when it encounters a wider opening at the end of the barrel, allows ink to be drawn into the pen.  This pen is very well made.  It can be completely disassembled for cleaning very easily by just unscrewing the gripping section and the small ring at the end of the barrel will allow the filling unit to be withdrawn through the barrel end.  The gripping section is sealed with a rubber O-ring, as is the packing unit.

The cap has a teardrop-ended gold plated pocket clip with a wide gold plated girdle near the cap lip.  The pen has a very good heft and feel in the hand.
