Wahl-Eversharp Airliner Doric – Good Flex – (On Ebay)
This is a large 5 1/4″ long Wahl-Evershapr Airliner Doric pen in excellent condition. These high end, premium quality pens were made in the late 30s I believe. I bought this pen already restored. It is a vac-fill, second generation, gold seal Doric with good barrel clarity (see pics). The gold filled trim looks fantastic. There is no crazing on the body, and the color (“green shell” I think) still looks new. The only significant “flaw” in the pen is that someone added a photo on the back of the cap. I would have removed it except the person actually etched in a small square in the cap so that the photo would be flush. The pen comes with a #9 Eversharp Adjustable nib. These nibs are always fire hoses when opened all the way up, and this one is no exception. The flex is hard to judge. It really has an ease of flex that would make it a super flex, but the ink flow is just so immense that it makes flexing a bit messier. The nib closed writes as a drier XF and a wet F opened all the way. And of course everything in between depending on how you adjust it. A stunning and beautiful pen.
