The Salz Pen – Wet Noodle (SOLD)


The Salz Pen – Wet Noodle (On Ebay)

Here is a Salz Brothers Inc. BCHR pen. Salz was a pen company in New York that made pens of various quality. I believe they changed their name in the 30s, so this would predate that (but be after the founding in 1918). This pen appears to be of decent quality. The black hard rubber has virtually no fading and has maintained the striped chasing very well. The imprint looks almost new. There is some wear on the gold filled lever, but the nickel plated clip is in very good condition. There is a small crack (see pic) going through the threads and a little into the barrel of the pen. I bonded the crack and shellacked the barrel to the section for stability. It will not a be a problem, but will require heat to remove the section in the future. The 14kt. nib is an ultra smooth writing Medium that has near paint brush ease of flex. It definitely qualifies as a wet noodle. The nib, however, does have a tiny crack from the back of the air hole to the top of the “A” in “Warranted.” The crack is quite stable, but it is there. Still this nib writes beautifully and flexes with ease up to 2.4mm. A pure pleasure to use.
