In 1949 Sheaffer introduced a line of pneumatic-filling pens, in which the ink sac was emptied by air pressure generated by depressing a plunger. The pressure was automatically released once the plunger was fully depressed, allowing the sac to fill. "Touchdown" was the name given these simple, efficient, and elegantly engineered pens.
