Hi to all, yesterday at the Rome pen show I was able to obtain a Wasp The Clipper pen. The pen is large and black (with the barrel which is striated, like a Pelikan, to allow to determine the ink level), it is a vac-filler and the nib is gold.

Any information?








Thank you

Hi Alfredo,

That's actually a bit of an unusual variant, likely correct, but one I can't offhand pin to a well known cluster of models. I might've seen one or two like it before, not more. That style clip usually pops up on lower line WASPs. Clippers usually do not show up with flat top.  There is debate about whether the usual "circuit board" style WASP, when done in black, even was done as oversized. And this isn't quite black "circuitboard" pen anyway. The transparency is consistent with late 1930s barrel clarity pattern in Sheaffers, proper.


Here's some lower line WASPs that have that sort of clip.


Of note, if you want to part with this pen, I'd be interested

David thank you for your response, as a side note I have seen that a photo of a pen equal to mine is on the Richard Binder web site in the section where the Wasp brand is described.
