Sheaffer Flat Top Self Filling – Wet Noodle

This is a full size BCHR flat top Sheaffer. It is still very black, and I don’t see much signs of browning. The chasing is a checkered pattern and is very crisp. The imprints are also fairly crisp. The gold trim is in good condition. There is just a little brassing on the lever. There is also just one small chip out of the lip of the cap. The nib is a Self-Filling #2 XF nib. It has Wet Noodle grade flex with a qualification. With inks with good surface tension like the Pilot Iroshizuku I’m offering as a free sample, this goes up to 1.9mm with ease. With inks with less surface tension, it will start railroading after 1.5-1.6mm range. It still is a great flexing nib, you just can’t use all the flex.
