Mabie Todd Swan Minor Red Mottled – Super Flex (SOLD)

Mabie Todd Swan Minor Red Mottled- Super Flex (On Ebay)

This is a made in England Mabie Todd Swan Minor with a No.2 nib. The pen is made of a nice red mottled hard rubber. The color is still quite good with only a little bit of fading. The imprints are also very good and crisp. The nickel filled clip has some wear from use. Most of the nickel remains in tact but it is matted and scuffed from the wear. The lever of this model was and is black in color and is in good shape. The 14kt. #2 Swan nib is a smooth writing F (0.5mm) with medium wetness. This is not a gusher but the flow keeps up. The nib doesn’t have that super buttery feel a wet nib will have, but it is still very smooth. The flex on this is pen is very good. It ranges from F all the way to a BBB (1.8mm). The flow is very good and the nib has good snap back.
