Mabie Todd Swan 1500 – Wet Noodle  (See Price Here)

Here is a made in England Mabie Todd Swan 1500 with a soft wet noodle nib with huge flex. This pen has pretty common wear for a BCHR pen. It has faded some to a dark brown. The chasing has worn some as well but does still have some texture. The imprints still look pretty good with just a bit of wear. The accommodation clip has significant wear as the photos show. The Mabie Todd 14kt. nib is a special nib. The flex is almost paintbrush soft and goes all the way to 2.5mm! It writes normally as XF/F. It writes smoothly normally but takes a light hand otherwise it will write more like a wet Fine. The feed is plenty wet to keep up with the monster flex. Great pen with a wet noodle nib of a quality that is hard to find.  (See Price Here)
