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

Here is gorgeous Wahl-Eversharp 1st generation Doric. It is in the Kashmir style, which is just stunning. This pen really pops. The Kashmir celluloid is notorious for “crazing” (i.e. developing cracks in celluloid), and this pen has a small crack extending from both side of the top of the clip. There is also one small crack in lip of the cap, and also a small chip (see pics). Otherwise, it shows no signs of any other crazing. The gold trim looks silky and beautiful. There is some tiny brassing on the cap band mostly visible only with magnification. The lever sticks out just a little bit from the body. Despite those flaws, this pen looks brand new upon first glance. The 14kt. two-tone Eversharp #3 adjustable nib is superb. It writes as a butter smooth F, and it has flexibility nearing the wet noodle class. It has a range of 0.4mm to 2.3mm! A beautiful, fantastic little pen.
