The Wearever Ink Cartridge Pen was introduced in 1957, priced at $1.49 with six cartridges. The pen competed with Sheaffer’s more expensive Skripsert cartridge fountain pens. Unlike the Skripsert, which followed the Sheaffer Snorkel in size and shape, the Wearever Ink Cartridge Pen was more blunted, with flat ends, and was made with a choice of different solid color barrels with a metal end cap. The Wearever Ink Cartridge Pen uses the same nib as Wearever Lady Fair. There were five nibs available, extra fine, medium, flexible fine, broad and steno.
