Wahl-Eversharp Doric #3 Adjustable Nib – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a pretty little 1st generation Wahl-Everhsharp Doric in Ladies size. It is in “Morocco” (red/ruby swirl). The pen does have some flaws. There is some light scratching and perhaps teeth marks throughout the pen. Nothing severe, but you can see them. There is also a small 3mm crack on the lip of the cap going up to the band. The band has stopped it from spreading and will likely continue to do so. There is some brassing on the band and some small spots of brassing on the clip and lever. The two tone 14kt. #3 adjustable nib is in a nib/feed unit that unscrews from the section (very nice for cleaning pen). When adjusted to flex, the nib has a quite easy and springy flex up to 1.7mm. These nib units do not allow for a lot of adjustment, so the feed is a bit further forward than I like it. The result is that unless your careful, the feed will hit the paper when flexing which causes some streaks. Still it’s a great little pen.
