Type  Slim fountain pen.

Product Name  Targa 1001XS. This is a slim white dot model. 1001 refers to the brushed steel. X refers to the gold plated trim. (It would have been 1001XGS with the original 14k gold nib). X refers to the gold trim. This is the first version of the Targa 1001XS.

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, body and cap made in Australia - 1982-88, much like the full sized version the cap derby changes after 1988. The nibs were made in USA and Australia. If you have a preference, please send us a message before buying so that we can make sure we still have one.

Length  Just under 5-3/8 inches.

Filling System  It takes slim Sheaffer style cartridges and converters.  You can use the included Kaweco Sport squeeze converter to fill it from bottled ink. The original Sheaffer slim squeeze converters are hard to find, but we've found these simple Kaweco Sport converters work well.

Color  Stainless steel with brushed finish and gold plated trim. It has the earlier brushed steel cap derby.

Nib  Steel nibs (this model would have orignally had 14k nibs). Select nib size from pull down menu.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country.

We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.
