Moore L-72 Ring Top – Super Flex

Here is a vintage Moore L-72 ring top in BCHR. The pen in excellent condition. The BCHR is still very black and chasing is pretty good. There is some light scratching throughout the surface of the pen. The imprints are also still pretty good. The gold-filled trim looks in good condition. The only brassing I could find was through magnification. This pen does not have an original Moore nib, but a “Warranted 14kt.” nib. This nib has a lot of character. It’s a stubbish F (0.4m) but with some decent line variation, so the nib does write quite as smooth as a normal F. The iridium on the nib is low but still present. The nib has some really easy flex that really goes past 1.9mm. Due to its stubbish shape, it can be a bit finicky about the angle you are using when flexing. Still some Pilot Iroshizuku Momiji worked great in this pen.
