This product — along with Anderson Pens Micro-Gloss No. 5 — is liquid gold! I received an old Sheaffer 1000 of my aunt’s to restore and the barrel was so scratched the whole thing looked like a cross between a matte and a textured finish. Hopeless. Well, I ordered both the Micro-Gloss #1 and #5, along with a set of Anderson Pens Micro-mesh pads. I read about how to use those from one of Brian Anderson’s helpful articles. Worked my way through the profession of pads on the barrel and then polished it off with the Micro-Gloss #5 and #1, and the result was absolutely astounding. The finish is mirror-like and brilliant, and the pen looks like it did when it came out of the box 50-plus years ago. Fantastic products; simply amazing customer service and resources! Thanks to the folks at Anderson Pens!
