Wahl Gold Filled Ring Top #2 Nib- Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a nice 3 7/8″ Wahl gold-filled ring top. Overall, the pen is in good shape. There is light scratching on the body, but nothing deep or major. There is some minor brassing on the end of the barrel from posting the cap. The brassing blends well into the gold filled and is not terribly noticeable. There is also very slight brassing on the edges of the crown of the lever. The cap does post pretty tight, which is good since it holds firm but does take more pressure than usual to post. The pen is personalized with the initials H.M.W. The 14kt. Wahl #2 nib is butter smooth and a lovely writing F (0.4mm). It also has nice flex going up to 1.8mm. I have graded it “good flex,” but this is really on the border between good and super in my estimate. It flexes pretty easy to 1.5mm or so, but it lacks a bit of the responsiveness and ease of flex that a “super flex” nib has. Still, you had do some nice flex work with it.
