Craftsman was, like several in Sheaffer's history, a model name that appeared at different times and for different pens. Its history started in the 1930s, when Sheaffer gave each Balance level a name to succeed its being known by its price code. Craftsman, the successor to the 3-25 coded pen, was the lowest such level for a full size pen; Miss Universe and Junior were a rung lower. After WWII, Craftsman continued with the open 33 nib and essentially the same smaller Balance design. By 1949, Later, the name graced the standard Touchdown pen, and during the 1950s the same name applied to the TipDip pens. The 33 nibs that came with most of the post WWII Craftsman are wonderful writers, soft and wet and usually a rich medium.
