Vintage Gold-Filled Ring Top – Super Flex (On Ebay)
This is a quality, unbranded, vintage, gold-filled ring top pen. I found the pen with a damaged Aikin Lambert nib, so this could be an Aikin Lambert. It is certainly of that quality. This pen is in excellent condition. The only dings are a couple tiny ones on the end of the barrel. There is no brassing on the pen. The pen threads exceptionally well and smoothly. The only down side to this pen is that it posts very tightly. It will post, and that is how I prefer to use it, but it is very tight. I put on the pen a fabulous “Warranted 14kt. #2” nib. It is an XXF nib that flexes easily and with great responsiveness up to 1.8mm. It has great detail flex as well. This nib gives you a lot of control. The XXF writes pretty smooth for how fine it is also.
