Vintage Wood Grain Pen – GOOD FLEX (On Ebay)

This is a large unbranded pen. It is 5″ long and almost 13mm in diameter. It is made of a red, grey marbled celluloid with gold-plated trim. The plating on the clip and lever are almost completely worn off, but the band is in very good shape. The body is faceted (11 sided) a bit like a Wahl Doric. The real winner on this pen is the 14kt. nib. It is a very smooth XF (0.3mm) with a bit of flex. The soft nib combined with the large diameter make this a nice writing pen.
