Return to Wearever


Maker: Wearever.

The Zenith, from the high-time of Wearever, is a step down from the Pacemaker despite the name suggestive of greatness.  This downward step is mainly one of the company’s invention.  The Zenith has less festive plastics, and a different filler, but is essentially the same shape as the Pacemaker. It also has the same point as the Pacemaker, which is good, and the “C-Flow” feed, which is not.

Production Run: 1944 – 1950.

Cost When New: $1.95 (for modern value, try this calculator).

Size: 13.1 cm long capped, 15.9 cm posted, 11.8 cm uncapped.

Point: 14k gold.

Body: Plastic.

Filler: Lever , capacity approx. 1.0 ml

The wretched C-Flow feed – there is a little ink left in it so you can see the deeper twin channels that barely manage to supply the point with ink
