That pen looks GREAT !!!! . I love old things !!

If you think that the ink cartridge is 20 yrs old then I would toss it and get a new one.

I don't believe the ink would be bad, but the plastic making up the cartridge could be.

When you insert the cartridge the aged plastic could tear/fracture and cause an ink spill.

Kids rule the world !!! .... eventually if not already !

This was my first fountain pen to both give away and sell, and was my personal go to pen for months until I gave that one away too. My last one still writes well, and the only difficulty was the plastic insert became brittle and cracked off inside and though it will still close over the nib it no longer posts securely on the end cap. I would make those kits, especially as this model has no tenon! Like magpens, I recommend getting new ink cartridge (or a reusable converter). I learned the hard way to avoid the French erasable ink with this pen; it can separate, turns white and pasty and will clog the pen. Hope this helps.

The best idea is to put them in large envelope, address it to me, and send em off to Wisconsin. I turn this same kit, PSI sells it as a "classic". Cheap intro fountain pen. I've sold a few to the guys at work who don't want to spend a lot on a fountain pen.
