Wahl Gold Filled Ring Top – Good Flex (On Ebay)

I love these little ring tops. They wear so amazingly well. Durability AND phenomenal portability with a fantastic nib by a maker who really knew what they were doing. This little beauty packs a punch with some very good flex. The Wahl #2 nib does have a “wrinkle” in one of the tines from I don’t know what. I can tell you this, though, it’s been a there a long time because the sweet of the nib now matches the slightly altered shape of it. It writes beautifully, very smoothly, and even “sings” (if you know what I mean). It was my favorite daily writer when I had it in my rotation because of the joy of the nib. I did not notice any alteration in the nib as I flexed it. It actually has pretty good responsiveness. There is some wear on the gold at the front and end of the barrel where the cap over the years has worn it down a bit. Also the lever does not quite rest flush in the barrel. Finally, in certain light, if you look close, and on a night of a crescent moon (ok not the moon part) the the barrel is slightly more yellow than the cap. Other than that, this pen is in very good condition.
