Mabie Todd Swan with Over/ Under Feed – Wet Noodle

Mabie Todd Swan- Wet Noodle  (See Price Here)

Here is a made in England Mabie Todd “Swan” 1500 eyedropper with an over/under feed. The black hard rubber has now turned brown. The imprints are worn a bit but they are certainly readable. All chasing on the pen has been worn smooth. The beauty of this pen is in the nib. This is a very wet writing pen as is typical for these Mabie Todd eyedroppers. The 14kt. Swan nib writes normally as a smooth and wet F but it has a nice soft flex up to 1.9mm. And the ink just pours from this nib once you start flexing. It’s a great pen for producing sheen if you are into that. I would say that this is on the lower side of the wet noodle grade. It’s not quite a paint brush, but it takes very little pressure to make the tines start spreading. These over/ under feed eyedroppers are much sought after. This one shows some age, but it’s still a great pen.  (See Price Here)
