Wahl BCHR Flat Top with “Flexible” Nib – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

This is a nice Wahl BCHR flat top in excellent condition. The hard rubber still quite black with very little fading. The chasing is also good. There is a little bit of brassing at the top of the clip and a little bit on the center edges of the lever. The bands look very good. This Wahl has a 14kt. Wahl-Eversharp “Flexible” nib, and it is that. Unfortunately, there is a small crack coming out of the right side of the breather hole. The crack appears quite stable and does not affect the writing performance of the nib. The nib is stubbish and writes a very wet, smooth fine (0.5mm) line. The flex on this pen is very easy and pretty snappy. It is almost a wet noodle in ease of flex and has a great range of flex from 0.5mm all the way to 2.2mm (F-BBB).
