The new Scrikks 419 Classic Piston filler fountain pen is an authentic writing instrument. a limited edition remake of the legendary Scrikss 419 first produced in the early 1970s. The 419 legendary looks very much like a pen from the past but with modern finishes. The glossy resin and lustrous gold plated fittings add a lot of glamour to the Scrikss’ 419 fountain pen. It full fills all the advantages of a traditional pen, namely: Screw Cap, the ink level window, the art deco-inspired clip, and the piston mechanism fitted into the barrel of the pen. This pen is a true connoisseur delight and of great interest to collectors.
The first impression of holding the pen is it is very light in nature, which can be attributed to the resin body. It is slender in shape and would fit well into hands that have small palms or just say the regular size. From the size of the pen, it surely feels to be liked by Asian pen connoisseurs as their hands are much smaller compared to their European or American counterparts.
The pen is seemingly well balanced once the cap is posted at the back. The nib is a nice steel finish with gold plating for the glamorous vintage look.
I happen to test the Medium nib pen with a Sheaffer Skrip blue ink. The paper pad used was a maplitho 80 Gsm. The Scrikss 419 classic piston filler fountain pen is ready to glide on paper. The writing experience is pretty smooth with great control over the flow. Even for the first use, I didn’t find any feedback or the nib skipping ink. The consistent ink flowing from the nib is my key indicator on the health of a good nib and feed system.
