Wahl BCHR Ring Top – Super Flex 

Here is a Wahl Vest size pen (4 1/2″ capped) in BCHR. It is in very good condition. The black hard rubber is still, well, black. The chasing is excellent and the imprint on the top of the cap is still readable. The gold filled trim looks very good. There is a tiny bit of brassing on the edges of the bands, but I could only see with magnification. The pen is engraved “A. McGhee,” who a famous artist. Kidding. I have no idea this person is, but I’m sure he/she was/is very special to someone. A. Mchee did have teeth and left some bite marks on the section (see pic), but there aren’t really any marks anywhere else. The 14kt. Wahl #2 nib is a very nice, wet, and smooth writing F (0.4mm). It is a tad oblique (see pic). Flex is quite easy and the range is up to 1.7mm. It has pretty good responsiveness and the feed is plenty wet to keep up. This is very nice little Wahl pen.
