Mabie Todd Swan 300 – Wet Noodle

Mabie Todd Swan 300 – Wet Noodle (See Price Here)

A nice made in England Swan eyedropper in good condition. The BCHR on this pen has faded very little as it still remains quite black. The original chasing on these pens was pretty subtle and it has mostly faded smooth. Side imprints and cap imprints are good and crisp, though the one near the end of barrel is a bit faded. There are a few very tiny dings in the bands but no brassing that I could see. The 14kt. #3 Swan nib is a wet writing F that has that elegant, soft, vintage feel to it. It also has soft, wet noodle flex. It isn’t quite paintbrush soft, but it is very soft and ranges up to 1.8mm (BBB)! It is also pretty responsive. A lot of fun to use both for flex writing or just adding some nice character to normal writing.
