Wirt Red Mottled Eyedropper – Super Flex  

Here is a vintage Paul E. Wirt red mottled eyedropper pen. The pen is in overall good condition. There is some fading the hard rubber. The imprints are worn and readable, though the bottom part takes magnification to read. The cap is missing the clip. The pen comes with the classic Wirt nib without a breather hole. The pen breathes instead through the feed. The 14kt. Wirt #4 is a great super flex nib that writes nicely as a XF/ F (0.35mm)  with just a little feedback. While the range on this pen isn’t enormous (0.35mm-1.5mm), it is quite soft and has very nice responsiveness. It is a quality flex nib that you can do some very nice flex writing with.
