Mabie Todd Swan Self-Filler – Good Flex (SOLD)

Mabie Todd Swan Self-Filler – Good Flex  (On Ebay)

This is a made in England Mabie Todd Swan self-filler in BCHR. The black hard rubber is a shiny jet black and chasing is still very crisp. The only real flaw of the pen is that the end of the barrel appears to have been exposed to some hight heat softening the hard rubber enough to result in the end of the barrel being bent slightly. I didn’t even notice it for the longest time. The nickel plated clip looks great as does the black wide lever. Imprints also all looks very good. The 14kt. Mabie Todd #2 nib is a lovely writing, wet and smooth XF that is also a semi-flex nib. A nice quality Swan pen.
