Sheaffer Ring Top Self Filling – Good Flex

This is a Sheaffer black chased hard rubber ring top pen. The chasing is in a checkered pattern and is still quite good. The hard rubber is faded a little to a lighter shade of black. Imprint is very crisp. The gold trim (band, lever, and ring) are all in good shape with little brassing. The Sheaffer 14kt. Self-Filling nib has super flex ease and range, but it just isn’t responsive enough to be a super flex. It is also a bit finicky about the angle of the nib on paper. Get off a little and it will railroad. The nib is pretty nice to write with. It could be a tad wetter. As is, it does have a slightly “chalky” feel to it if you know what I mean. Still a nice little pen.
