Mabie Todd Swan Eternal Leverless 1060.

Regular price £135.00

The Mabie Todd Swan 1060 was made in two versions, the early 1940s 'flat top', and the larger, more streamlined 'torpedo' shape, this pen.

The pen is a leverless 'twist filler', a very simple and efficient system.  The pen has been fully restored, it fills well with just one turn on the filler button.  Contrary to common belief, the filler bar does not twist the sac, it presses against it as the button is turned.  The surface has a deep shine, and the imprints are crisp and sharp,

Mabie Todd were known to be fiercely proprietorial with their products, hence the liberal use of brand imprints on all removable parts, a stamp, or logo appears on th clip, barrel, section, feed, and nib of this pen.   

At a huge 16. 6 cm. in length when posted, with a proportionate girth, the Swan 1060 Torpedo is an extremely large and substantial pen with a solid, high quality feel. 

Such a pen needs a suitably high quality nib and Mabie Todd did not stint in providing the impressive and robust No. 4 Eternal 14Ct. Gold nib.  The Eternal nib is made from thicker Gold than the 'normal' Swan nibs and is a more expensive option.  The thicker Gold on the Etenal nib resists any flex but it has a very pleasant 'soft' feel.

The box is new and unbranded, it will serve well for protection, transport, and display.

The Mabie Todd Swan 1060 Eternal is not easy to find and is very collectable.  With its large size, obvious quality and pedigree the pen certainly 'makes a statement'.
