Mabie Todd Swan- Wet Noodle (On Ebay)
Here is a made in New York Mabie Todd “Swan” eyedropper with an over/under feed. The BCHR is faded on one side of the pen to a more olive brown color. The other side has much less fading and is almost black. Chasing and imprints are all very good. The nib is very, very flexible. This has paintbrush or near paintbrush ease of flex. It’s flexible enough that it is not very easy to control. There was a nick on to the iridium on the right tine. There is still tipping left but not a ton and it did require some smoothing out. This is very fun pen to do some flex writing with.
