Condition and information:
This must be one of the most underrated pens ever, but hiding a true impeccable masterpiece in quality and design. The original Targa model from 1981, the "1000". The pen was marketed by Sheaffer's as the Mirror or "Brilliant Chrome" as it has a glowing shine. The pens just feels amazing, heavy, tough, sturdy, with clean shape and form factor, a masculine pen in every respect. Due to its true brilliant shine, it is very difficult to capture on pictures as it reflects all light that falls on it, so nearly impossible to capture the true looks of the pen. The pen has a near mirror like surface, as a polished chrome bumper on a vintage car. The pen has a unique feel and design, nearly cylindrical shape with a great feel in the hand due to its weight, considering that the entire pen body and cap are made out of steel. When the cap is posted the pen becomes a true oversize pen at full 160mm, making it feel great in the hand. The nib is F fine, very smooth and constant writer with a slim fine line, great for any work any duration. This nib is almost impossible to damage, it is very stiff and the way its embedded in to the body, aside the appeal, this gives the nib much more rigidity. Just the nib design on these Sheaffer pens deserves a Fountain Pen Lifetime Award Achievement. To date this unique embedded nib design hasn't been replicated by any other pen maker ever. These niibs are very durable and reliable, besides being a joy to look at. The itself its very simple to use and maintain, easy to open and clean. The fountain pen is accompanied by its ballpoint pen counterpart, built from the same material and with same quality. It is a twist upper body on/off mechanism, very smooth and precise, and it comes with its original refill. The set is in absolute mint condition, near NOS, still with its model and nib size sticker, no scratches, dings or marks of any king. The pen comes with its original Sheaffer Bladder Converter, but can be used with any Sheaffer's converter but it can also be used with any Sheaffer standard cartridge, this makes the pen versatile and easy to use.
