Vintage Onoto Mammoth, C1924, Plunger Filler, Fully Restored, Huge #8 Nib For Sale
Vintage Onoto Mammoth, c1924, Plunger Filler, Fully Restored, Huge #8 NibThis is an Onoto Mammoth that dates to approx 1924 – the largest of the Onoto pens. It measures 5 9/16 inches closed. This pen was clearly used but it has no fatal flaws – there are no cracks, no engravings, or any damage of any kind. The barley finished black hard rubber is moderately oxidized and evenly worn throughout. The barrel imprint is worn as well but is fully legible. The gold filled cap band has the initials P.R.R.
The enormous #8 original Onoto nib has a nice medium flex and is medium in width. It lays down a nice even medium+ line of ink. For comparison purposes there is a photo showing the nib next to a Waterman #2 nib (the Waterman #2 nib is not included).
This pen is a plunger filler – it fills on the down stroke (same as a Sheaffer plunger or vacuum filler). Pen has been fully restored and is ready to fill and use.
