Description The Sheaffer Prelude Matte Gunmetal rollerball features a matte charcoal lacquer over brass barrel and cap, accented by black trim. The snap cap securely closes the pen, and it posts securely on the barrel when writing. The cigar shaped design and mid-range length and girth of the Sheaffer Prelude model makes this a universally comfortable pen in the hand. Please note that the Sheaffer Prelude uses the Sheaffer C rollerball refill, and NOT the Slim refill.
