Vintage Ring Top – Super Flex (On Ebay)
Here is a pretty little black and light green marbled celluloid. Actually, I think the green was once an ivory color that has “greened” a bit over time. This is an unbranded pen, but you can tell the quality of good pen maker is there. Gold-filled trim is in overall good condition with just a bit of wear on the lever. There is some light scratching from use on the body of the pen, but nothing very major. The 14kt. Warranted #4 nib is a wet writing F that is smooth and springy. The flex is very soft, almost in the wet noodle category, and it has a great range going from 0.4mm to 1.9mm. It is a bit finicky about the angle on the paper when you flex. If you start rolling your hand while flexing, it will railroad. If you maintain good form, however, you shouldn’t have any problems.
