Wirt Mini Eyedropper – Good Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is a vintage and unique Paul E. Wirt pen. Wirt made some high quality pens into the early 1900s. This little ring top is not only small measuring at just over 3″ capped, it is also an eyedropper. The pen is made of black hard rubber that has faded to a dark, grey brown. The gold filled band and ring top are in good shape having some light scratching but no brassing. The pen is equipped with a famous 14kt. Wirt nib with no breather hole (the breather hole is in the feed). The nib writes as a nice XF (0.3mm). I have rated the flex as “good flex” due to the small range of flex it has, and the flex isn’t as easy as a typical super flex. Many would call this a semi-flex. However, the nib is snappy and if it had a bit more range it would easily be a super flex. Still, a great little, unique pen to add to any collection.
