Good day, pen friends.

Today I bring you a 1947 Sheaffer Sentinel DeLuxe. It's worth noting that this pen exhibits the early model cap, with smooth brushed steel instead of the polished steel & vertically lined caps that came on later models. Sheaffer marketed these caps as "Mastermetal" which allegedly resists scratching and other damage.

This pen is a lever-filler, and has a black barrel, as the lever-filler Sentinel DeLuxes only featured black barrels. Vacuum-fillers came in black, grey pearl, and marine green celluloids. Later touchdown models were sold in green, blue, brown, burgundy, and black.

Speaking of caps and levers, I do appreciate the attention to detail with such precise machining to where the clip lines up with the lever every time you cap the pen.

The cap is engraved "SHEAFFER'S - MADE IN U.S.A." & the barrel is stamped with the following:
W.A. SHEAFFER PEN CO.
FORT MADISON, IOWA, U.S.A.
MADE IN U.S.A.

The barrel is also price-coded "1500" as the original selling price of this pen was $15.00. Adjusted for inflation, that's about $170 today.

Another interesting thing is the location of the white dot. Sheaffer only figured out how to reliably mount the white dot on metal caps in 1948; due to their inability at the time, this pen's white dot is located at the very tip of the barrel.

The nib is, of course, a nail, writing a crisp medium line. I've restored the pen with a proper size 20 ink sac and it writes as one would expect a vintage Sheaffer to: like a dream.

Measurements:
133mm capped
115.5mm uncapped
12.5mm in diameter

Cutting corners and fighting trees!

This picture was taken just before the back injury after a overrotation where I landed on my head. The result was a discsplit in the lumbar region between L4 and L5, it was so bad that I could not stand upright or walk. The freeride sport has always been risky and there have been ups and downs over the years and there are still challenges ahead. Have always been a fan of good physical activity, healthy food and exercise to keeping the body in a "flow" way.
Currently beside skiing Im involved in a interesting company that develops vegetarian products. Development of food products based on plant protein and seaweed that are grown localy. It's also sustainable and smart food for the future.@flowfoodnordic #flowfoodmovement .
