Wahl-Eversharp Oversize w/ Factory “Oblique” – Super Flex   (On Ebay)

Here is a large, oversize Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal flat top pen. The pen is similar in size to a Pelikan M800, though slightly thicker and a shade shorter. The pen is made of a lovely green with gold/ bronze dust pattern. However, the pen has some flaws. The flip was broken off at some point, and some user of this pen had a bad habit of biting it as the top of the cap and back of the barrel both have teeth marks. There is a bigger chunk out of the back of the black end of the barrel. Gold bands are in good shape (save for the bite marks). The lever does have some brassing. The threads of the pen hold well after a quarter turn, but they feel just a little off. However, the real star of this pen is the huge factory “Oblique” italic nib. It writes (depending on the angle you hold it) at about a 0.6mm broad line that is quite crisp and it flexes all the way up to 2.3mm. This nib is hard to come by and has tremendous value by itself. An oblique italic nib with flex gives this pen some real potential.
