Wahl Oxford – Good Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a Wahl Oxford in some gorgeous green/ pearl celluloid. Wahl Oxfords were a cheaper “student pen.” That, however, does not mean their quality is subpar. On this Oxford it means that the trim is gold plated rather than filled. And the plating on the lever is no longer present and there is some wear on the clip. The band, however, still looks good. There is one small spot of reddish discoloring (probably due to some kind of ink stain) just below the cap. The imprint is worn and only partly readable. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is really from a different (and probably superior pen), but it works well in this Oxford. It is a juicy, ultra, glassy smooth nib that has some good flex from 0.5mm to 1.8mm.
