I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, and section. Replaced the old rubber sac with a new rubber sac. Hand polished the Gold Filled Clip, Cap Banding and 14C NIB. I also cleaned the barrel and cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the hard rubber of the fountain pen.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, teeth marks or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap has the Gold Filled Clip that displays some wear. The Cap Banding displays no gold fill loss. The lever shows a hint of gold fill wear. The barrel is lightly stamped with, "STEPHENS' LEVERFIL NO 106 MADE IN ENGLAND" at the center of the barrel. There are no monograms or personalizations on the cap or barrel. This Stephens' Fountain Pen measures 5 1/8" in length capped and 6 1/8" posted. The pattern on the Fountain Pen has a chased barley corn design that is unique.
I have tested the lever filling mechanism with water and fills as it should. The Lever Filling System works excellent, as it was originally intended to.
The Nib on this fountain pen is where this Stephens' excels. This Stephens' Fountain Pen has a Warranted 14C Nib that writes extremely smooth with a medium to triple broad stroke line. The actual writing portion, the iridium, of the 14C NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .77mm when measured with digital calipers. When creating a writing sample, the NIB writes with a medium stroke/line measuring at .68mm and will flex up to a triple broad stroke of 1.85mm with medium to firm pressure when measured with digital calipers. The writing sample was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Blue Ink.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.
This is a Sleek Black Fountain Pen from Stephens' that I would grade in Fine to Very Fine Condition. The Nib really makes this pen as it is fantastic to write with due to its smoothness and line variation. This fine writing instrument is ready to write with or just add to writing arsenal collection.
