The Sheaffer Icon fountain pen in Metallic Red has a girthy classic cigar-shaped profile, and features a metallic dark red lacquer over brass barrel and cap, with glossy black-plated trim and red accents. In a design twist that will delight fans of hooded nibs, the stainless steel hooded nib is available in Fine or Medium nib sizes. The black-plated vintage-inspired military clip wraps over the top of the cap. The snap cap closes the pen securely when not in use, and the pen does post while writing.
The Sheaffer Icon fountain pen uses the Sheaffer a standard fountain pen ink cartridge that is included, or the Sheaffer piston converter is available separately for use with bottled ink.
