    An old DIXIE pen:



    FP Historians who like odd brands such as PenHero or Phillip Munson, have quite a bit of info on this brand (online, even). But I bet you not a lot of pen people you know would recognize this brand. Or they would classify this as "third tier" and dismiss it outright (a mindset that I find myself at the opposite end of).

    The fact is, I really like this handsome pen. A big and solid (5-1/4 inches capped) old pen that withstand restoration admirably, and those knurled ends that reminds me of my Gold Bonds pens.
