Another huge pen.

At about the same time as Parker were busy making the Parker Ellipse the main rival, Sheaffer came up with this monster:

Sheaffer Intrigue 616

Apparently it was ‘Born in Fire’ and it certainly has a ‘forged and burnished’ look about it. It’s the Sheaffer Intrigue. This model, the 616, is constructed from layers of chrome and gunmetal coloured structures without a right angle or a circle in sight. Given its ultra modern lines it could well have been called the ‘Ellipse’ had Parker not pinched the name first.
