Mabie Todd Swan- Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here us a U.S. made Mabie Todd Swan Self Filling Pen. The pen is in pretty good shape overall. The BCHR is still quite and black, and though the chasing is worn, it still has some texture. The imprints are also pretty good with only minimal wear. The gold filled lever has quite a few spots of brassing (see pic). The pen had no original clip and still does not. The 14kt. Mabie Todd #2 Swan nib is a real star. It writes as an ultra smooth XF/F (0.3mm) that is not overly wet or dry. Plus, it has a huge flex range going from 0.3mm to 2.3mm. That’s a range of 2.0mm! It’s ease of flex is not good enough for me to classify it as a “Wet Noodle,” but it is quite responsive making it an easy nib to control. It’s a fantastic flexing nib.
