Parker Vacumatic –  SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

Here is a Silver Pearl Parker Vacumatic with single jewel and in Debutante size. It is a postwar filler. It is a rare Vacumatic with a very flexible nib. The pen is in fair condition. The silver trim shows a good amount of wear on both the clip and the cap band. Barrel clarity is decent. There are teeth marks on the blind cap. The 14kt. Parker “arrow” nib is a very wet B (measures more in the Medium range, but feels like a broad). The flex on this nib is very easy. In fact, the nib is so malleable that if you over flex (which isn’t hard to do with this nib), the tines will go out of alignment. It takes some care in using it, but it still has great flex range up to 2.2mm.
