Writing with a fine pen should be a joy, and the comfortable feel of the Sheaffer Prelude Ballpoint Pen, Black Onyx Laqué Barrel with Chased Palladium Plate Cap and 22k Gold Plate Trim allows your thoughts to flow onto the page splendidly. A simple twist releases the ballpoint tip for your writing pleasure or retracts it for safe storage while not in use. The simple yet refined black barrel contrasts beautifully with the textured palladium cap, its glowing silver color accented with the same gold that surrounds the tip of the pen. Substantial and stylish, this is a writing instrument you will reach for with anticipation and pride.
Ballpoint pens eliminate any issues of leakage with a thicker ink that is moved to the writing surface by a tiny sphere that rotates, picking up color from the reservoir and applying it to the paper. The technology has been available since the 19th century, but was placed into widespread use only in the 1940s. Actually more expensive than the fountain pens of the time, the ballpoints introduced in the mid-last century were considered to be cutting-edge, favored for the permanency of the ink and longer length of time before a refill was needed. Then as today, a Sheaffer ballpoint pen combines handsome design with ease of maintenance without sacrificing style or quality.
Sheaffer has offered pens to serious writers for over 100 years, always seeking to improve the fine writing experience for its customers. Whether your preference is for a traditional fountain pen, a practical ballpoint or a modern rollerball, be assured Sheaffer has a pen waiting for you and the way you approach your writing.
