Wahl-Eversharp Doric – Good Flex – (On Ebay)

This is a black Wahl-Eversharp Doric with a #7 “Adjustable” nib. These pens are gorgeous in person. They feel heavier and more solid than the average celluloid pen and are clearly a high end pen. The pen is a plunger filler with a semi-transparent barrel. There appears to have been a cut in the cap that someone filled. I smoothed out the filler, but you can still see evidence of the repair (see pic). There is some light scratching throughout the pen. But the gold filled trim is in fantastic shape. I replaced the seal on the plunger. The seal on the back of the barrel seemed to be working, so I did not replace it. This Doric is fitted with a #7 “Adjustable” nib. You push the slider back on the nib to flex and move it forward for normal writing. Flow also adjust accordingly. The flex on this pen is very wet with good variation, although the ease of flex and responsiveness are not quite up to Super flex standards. A gorgeous pen. Free Gift: From now until Christmas, everyone one of my buyers gets a free 2ml sample of Pilot Iroshizuku ink!
