In 1912 Walter A. Sheaffer of Fort Madison, Iowa takes his idea of a pen filling system that uses a lever and founds the W. A. Sheaffer Pen company from a cramped back room of jewellery shop.
By the 1930's Sheaffer Pens had become a leader in the luxury pen market. Sheaffer Pens, with their original lever-filler mechanism were being advertised as a pen that "fills instantly from any ink-well, with one touch of a finger. Cleans automatically when filling." This design was in use until the end of the 1940's
In 1949 Sheaffer pen developed the touchdown pneumatic-filling mechanism for their top pens. A development of the Touchdown design was the Sheaffer Snorkel, which added a small extendable tube underneath the nib to avoid the need to dip the nib into the ink when operating the filler plunger.
After 1959 most Sheaffer pens were designed to accept either ink cartridges or an ink converter to allow the use of bottled ink.
Since then the Sheaffer Pen brand has been synonymous with quality, innovation, and craftsmanship. Today Sheaffer Pens forge ahead with the same commitment to excellence.
