Eggens-Hambler Co. Ring Top – Good Flex

Here is an Eggens-Hambler black chased hard rubber ring top pen. Eggens and Hambler were previously employed by L.E. Waterman and produced pens of intermediate quality. This pen is in pretty good condition. It is still very black with little fading. The chasing and imprints are crisp. The gold filled trim is in good condition with only moderate brassing in places. The 14kt. nib is not original to the pen, though it fits well. The iridium is worn, but it is still present. The flex is quite easy with a good range. It just lacks the responsive needed to be a super flex. The nib is quite wet. You won’t be railroading with this pen.

NIB: 14kt., F to BBB (0.5mm-1.8mm),  GOOD FLEX (See “Grading Flex Nibs” for How I Grade)
