Wahl BCHR Flat Top – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

This BCHR Wahl Flat Top is in good overall condition with one obvious flaw. The clip of this pen broke off at some point and left a hold in the cap. The BCHR is faded some to a very dark brown with a few very small spots of discoloration on the cap. Chasing is worn, though visible. The imprints are also worn but readable. Patent on the cap dates to 1904, so over a hundred year old pen here. The gold filled lever has only two very tiny spots of brassing. The star of the pen is the 14kt. Wahl #3 nib. This nib is a phenomenal writing F/M. It’s at least as smooth as my Pelikan M800 B and maybe even smoother. Like writing with a pillow. Amazing. It also has some nice flex, and though it is on the stiffer side of super flex it has a great range going up to 2.2mm! If you don’t mind a hole in the cap, this is a great pen.
