Nib: XFine 14k
Condition: New old stock with box and paperwork
New finishes were introduced to the Intrigue collection in 2002, under the banner "Reborn in Fire". The fountain pens have the same chrome plated cap and overlay to the barrel, the 618 is finished with a petrol blue metallic barrel.
The Intrigue fountain pen incorporates a filling system that allows the pen to be filled from a bottle of ink without accessing inside the pens barrel, the same idea was used on the Sheaffer Legacy I and II fountain pens, where the convertor can be remove allowing the use of ink cartridges.The Intrigues system uses a unique piston convertor which is filled by turning a knob on the end of the barrel.
