Wahl Flat Top – Super Flex (SOLD)

Wahl Flat Top – Good Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a Wahl Flat Top in BCHR. The hard rubber is still quite dark. The cap is still black and the body is a dark brown. The chasing is still very good. There is some scratching on the back of the barrel (from being posted I assume). There are also two small cracks on the lip of the cap. They appear stable. The nickel plated lever has some scratches. The clip looks pretty good with some wear, but still looks pretty good. The 14kt. Wahl #2 is a smooth writing XF (0.3mm) that writes wet but not gushing. The flex on this pen goes up to 1.6mm (BB). The flex is a little too firm to be graded super flex, but it has pretty decent responsiveness. This pen still has plenty of life left in it.
