Mabie Todd Swallow – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a nice Mabie Todd Swallow in black and green celluloid. The body has discolored some as is common to this type of material. There are also bite marks on the top of the cap and end of the barrel. The gold filled trim is in excellent condition with no signs of brassing. The imprints are also very crisp. The 14kt. Mabie Todd #2 is an ultra buttery smooth writing F. Fantastic writing experience. The flex on the nib is soft and easy and goes up to 1.7mm. Responsiveness is decent but not extraordinary. I did have some railroading issues with some inks, but with wetter inks like this Sailor Souten it did quite well. Also if you turn your wrist a little while flexing it’s pretty unforgiving and will railroad. You have to use good form, which of course is best to do with any pen. A nice pen with a buttery nib and nice flex.
