I'm sure Mr. Zaner or Mr. Bloser can recommend someone.

Is that a sterling cap? Nice!

I think the S.S.S. might stand for "Sun, Sea, Star." They were also known as San-Esu in Japan. I've seen S.S.S. pens on Japanese auction sites, but never one that looked like that. Very cool! :)

Do any of them have that fantastic looking spade nib?


Do you mean on the 2nd one that they turned a new barrel for you?




Might you be thinking of Macniven and Cameron's Waverley nib? (article here). Can't say I've ever seen one in a Ford.



According to this article by Oldfield, it looks like a spade nib is 2.5 mm across the tips, so perhaps a BBB in another pen?

I have one of the faceted pens, and the section is threaded.

Hope that helps!
