Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Good/Super Flex

Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Good/Super Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a nice Skyline in burgundy with the gold-filled cap. The pen is in great condition. It has some very minimal light scratching on the body. The gold-filled trim is in good condition overall. There is some plate loss on the crown of the lever from the cap rubbing on it when posted. There are no ding or scratches in the gold-filled cap. There is a tiny little ding on the clip. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a very wet writing F (0.5mm) that is glassy smooth. It has very good range of flex going up to 1.9mm!! (BBB+).  The wetness of the feed does reduce the responsiveness as the ink just pours out of this when flexed. But if you want some sheening, this is the pen for you. The ease of flex is on the border between “super flex”  and “good flex.” Still its a great Skyline.

Waterman 52 1/2V – Super Flex

Waterman 52 1/2V  – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

This Waterman ring top is a black hard rubber pen with gold filled trim. The hard rubber has faded to a medium brown. The pen is smooth with no original chasing. The imprints are perhaps a little worn but are easily readable. The gold filled trim does not show any brassing. However, the lever box at some point was pushed downward resulting in a slight bend down at it’s axis point. There is no crack in the box. Just a slight bend downward. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a wet and smooth writing F (0.4mm) that flexes quite easily up to a BB line (1.6mm). It has pretty good responsiveness as well.

Wahl-Eversharp Doric Junior – Wet Noodle

Wahl-Eversharp Doric – Wet Noodle – (See Price Here)

Here is a lovely Wahl Doric in Junior size in the Morraco red color. This color is really beautiful with a depth that causes it to shift in appearance as you move it in the light. The body does have some light scratching throughout typical of these models but no crazing. It’s a first generation Doric lever-filler. The gold-filled trim is all in good condition. The #3 two-toned Eversharp Adjustible nib is a lovely wet writing F (when adjusted to firm) and a soft wet noodle when adjusted to full flex. This pen puts down a lot of ink when flexing and the nib is paintbrush soft. It has a great range going all the way to BBB (1.8mm). As is usual in such a soft nib the responsiveness isn’t as crisp as some wet noodles, but it’s still decent for its softness. This is just a fun, beautiful pen.

Waterman 12 – Super Flex

Waterman 12 – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

This is a nice Waterman 12 in BCHR. It’s an early 12. The imprints are on the cap (generally they are on the barrel) and the latest patent date is 1898 which would precede the Waterman’s later 1904 patent date. That dates this pen to sometime between 1898 and 1904. It’s in superb condition for it’s age. It has faded to a dark brownish color, but the chasing and imprints (even the “12” on the barrel end) appear about as crisp as original. This pen has seen a lot of action. The gold filled bands look to be in good condition as well. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is an early version which would match the dating of the pen. It’s a nice, smooth writing XF/ F (0.35mm) with medium wetness. It has some nice flex going up to 1.6mm. It has decant responsiveness. Overall, this is a very fine example a very old pen.

SIZE:  5 1/4″ Capped

NIB: Waterman #2, XF/F to BB (0.35mm-1.6mm),  SUPER FLEX (See “Grading Flex Nibs” for How I Grade)

Mabie Todd Swan Minor Red Mottled – Super Flex

Mabie Todd Swan Minor Red Mottled- Super Flex (On Ebay)

This is a made in England Mabie Todd Swan Minor with a No.2 nib. The pen is made of a nice red mottled hard rubber. The color is still quite good with only a little bit of fading. The imprints are also very good and crisp. The nickel filled clip has some wear from use. Most of the nickel remains in tact but it is matted and scuffed from the wear. The lever of this model was and is black in color and is in good shape. The 14kt. #2 Swan nib is a smooth writing F (0.5mm) with medium wetness. This is not a gusher but the flow keeps up. The nib doesn’t have that super buttery feel a wet nib will have, but it is still very smooth. The flex on this is pen is very good. It ranges from F all the way to a BBB (1.8mm). The flow is very good and the nib has good snap back.

Wahl BCHR Flat Top with Roller Clip – Super Flex

Wahl BCHR Flat Top with Roller Clip – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a Wahl flat top pen in BCHR. The black hard rubber has faded to a mostly dark brown with spots of lighter brown on the cap. The chasing on the pen is worn a little but is still quite visible and has texture to it. The gold-filled trim is in overall good condition. The roller clip looks beautiful. There is a little bit of brassing on the crown of the lever. The Wahl #2 nib is a superb XF (0.3mm) that writes soft and smooth, especially for such a fine nib. It also has some beautiful flex going from a superb range of XF to BBB (0.3mm to 1.8mm). The ease of flex is near wet noodle, but not quite. And the responsiveness of the nib is excellent.
