Mabie Todd Swan- Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a Mabie Todd Swan SM2/60 or a Swan Minor with a #2 nib in black hard rubber. The black hard rubber on this pen is still very black. Chasing and imprints are still pretty crisp. There are bite marks on the ends of the cap and barrel. More on the cap than the barrel. The nickel plated clip has some wear and minor pitting, but still has maintained a good bit of it’s plating. The larger, black lever still looks pretty good. The nib on this pen is interesting. It’s a 14kt. #2 Mabie Todd Swan nib with an oblique F. Despite its significant obliqueness, the nib does write very smoothly at a “normal” writing angle. It’s a smooth F with medium wetness. The flex on this pen is very large going up to 2.1mm and doing so pretty easily. The feed pours a lot of ink out very quickly. Not a pen to use on cheap paper, but a great pen for big and wet flex work. If you like sheen in your ink, this is your pen.
