The Sheaffer Connaisseur fountain pen was first introduced to the public in 1986 and was available with a plain black barrel. This expanded to a couple more colors (burgundy and blue) by 1989 before an ever increasing range of colors and finishes that turned the Connaisseur fountain pen into an extremely diversified pen. As well as the original Connaisseur the range was joined by the very prestigious looking Grand Connaisseur.
The shape of the Connaisseur is reminiscent of far earlier flat top pens and while it is a sleek and attractive looking pen, the main feature with each one in the line is the writing quality which is very high.
