RARE PEN ALERT! SHEAFFER’S SNORKEL ADMIRAL BUCKSKIN TAN!

Let there be no doubt this is a rare pen!

As said on David’s website, Vacumania:

The Thin Model (TM) Snorkel introduced in 1952, gave the Parker “51” quite the run for the money. These two competitors dominated the American quality pen scene throughout the 1950’s. Buckskin is considered one of the intermediate colors, along with Sage. My few years hunting Snorks suggests it gives “High Cachet” Fiesta a run in the rarity race and that it is well less common than Sage. Matching gripping section adds a bit of “oomph” to the look, though I am uncertain that Buckskin was offered any other way.

Profiles in Nib Re-Shaping

I figured I would share these before and after photos of two these nib tips so you can get an idea on what a proper job is on nib smoothing.

Often is the case, either by use, or improper “smoothing” with fine emery paper, the client comes to me and says their nib is still scratchy. Well, it is usually because a “foot” has developed a a particular angle over time, or with the emery paper, causing a flat spot with sharp corners.

Notice the first photo how the foot has a flat spot, and sharp side edges. After being worked professionally by me, the nib tip now has the proper shape and roundness of the tipping, what you would expect the tipping to look like new.

Let me help you with your nib smoothing issues today. Don’t be fooled by those claims of how one can just smooth up a tip with emery paper, it often results in damage that sometimes cannot be corrected with just reshaping alone, a whole new retip will have to be done.

Below the first two pictures is another nib I worked on that was “worked over” by another client. This time this nib is an Edison nib. You can definitely see the difference on this nib before I worked on it, and after.
