Wahl-Eversharp Doric – Super Flex –  (On Ebay) 

Here is a Wahl-Eversharp Doric in black with gold-filled trim and a nice Eversharp “Flexible” nib. The pen is in great condition. It does have some light scratching throughout the pen, which always more obvious in glossy black. The gold filled trim is in good condition. I can only see one tiny spot of brassing on the crown of the lever. The pen was a “Lever-Vac” model, which means it has a ink window in the barrel, but the section inside the barrel has lost most of it’s transparency so it does little good. The star of this pen, though, is the Eversharp 14kt. “Flexible” nib. This is really a borderline noodle. That is, it’s very close to the border between “super flex” and “wet noodle.” It writes normally as a very smooth XF nib that is not overly wet, but it flexes is great ease and very good responsiveness to 1.8mm. Fantastic pen.
