Wahl-Eversharp Doric – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a lovely 1st Generation Wahl Doric Junior in Kashmir celluloid. This pen is in great condition without the crystallization that is common on these pens. There is light scratching on the body of the pen. The gold filled trim looks pretty good with a few shallow nicks here and there and with only minimal brassing on the edges of the clip, band, lever. The celluloid truly looks so much more stunning and deep in person than what the pictures can capture. It comes with a 14kt. Eversharp “Signature” nib. It writes normally as a wet, smooth fine (0.4mm). It also has some very nice flex that comes quite easily and goes up to 1.8mm. The feed is very wet, and the flow has no trouble keeping up. In fact, this Diamine Blaze Orange is one of my driest and thinnest inks that railroads in most pens, but this Doric handles it like a champ. As a result, some of my Noodlers inks which are prone to gushing were almost too wet limiting the responsiveness of the nib. A beautiful, high quality pen with some nice flex.
