Croxley – Dickenson – SUPER FLEX – (On Ebay)

Now here was a nice surprise. I picked up this pen not expecting much of anything from it. I know very little of this company (really two companies, Croxely did the body apparently and Dickenson did the nib). The body is good size and feels quite solid and sturdy. The plastic is a little soft and there were a lot of little scratches on the pen. I buffed out the worst of the them and gave it a good polishing. But it’s still has scratches. The nib writing normally is on the dry side. But once you start flexing the feed keeps up fairly well. The flex comes with ease with lines varying from 0.5mm to 1.8mm on Rhodia paper.
