This Aikin Lambert Taper Cap Fountain Pen is an Eyedropper Fill type. I have tested the filling system with water and work as it was originally intended to.

The Aikin Lambert Fountain Pen has a smooth Aikin Lambert Nib that is a proper style nib for this pen. The iridium tipping has worn away and could be retipped if one wanted prolonged use - the point in its current condition does measure at .66mm or a medium point. When writing the sample in the listing images, the NIB writes with a medium to double broad stroke/line. The medium line measures roughly .89mm on the horizontal strokes and will flex to a double broad stroke/line of 1.38mm with medium to firm pressure when measured with digital calipers. The writing sample provided 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.

This Aikin Lambert Taper Cap Fountain Pen is in beautiful condition. The abalone and pearl slabs are incredible and really give this pen a rich design. This is a great example to add to one's writing arsenal collection.
