Wahl Oversized Flat Top – Super Flex (SOLD)

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

Oh I love these oversized Wahl Pens. To give you an idea of the girth of these pens, the barrel is a whopping 14mm in diameter. By way of comparison, the cap of Waterman 55 is only 13.5mm. A Pelikan M800 barrel is around 13.3mm. The hard rubber of this pen has faded to a dark black/brown. Chasing is a little worn but still pretty good. The gold filled trim looks pretty good with no brassing. There are a couple very tiny dings on the lever. A single mm or so has been cut off the lip of the cap (it probably had a small crack and was removed to stop the crack from spreading). The monstrous 14kt. Wahl “Signature” nib is an ultra, butter smooth M/ B (0.6mm) that writes juicy with just a bit of a stubbish quality to it. It is has a soft flex, which gives it a really soft feel when writing. Definitely a pen for long writing sessions. The flex ranges up to BB (1.7mm) and is pretty responsive. Just a great pen.
