Wahl Tempoint Flat Top – Super Flex (SOLD)

Wahl Tempoint Flat Top – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is an vintage Wahl Tempoint in BCHR with a patent date of 1904. The pen has faded and is now a dark brown. The chasing has worn some but is visible and still has some texture. The imprints are also all readable. The gold-filled lever has just a little bit of brassing towards its middle. The original clip has been lost, and at some point someone filled in the hole it left with some rubber cement. The 14kt. Wahl #3 is an ultra, buttery smooth writing Fine with some nice bounce to it. It’s an amazingly soft writer. The nib also has some nice flex going up BBB (1.8mm). It has decent responsiveness and the flow is great.
