Moore L-82 – Good Flex

Moore L-82 – Good Flex– (On Ebay)

Here is a Moore L-82 ring top vest pen. This model is similar in size and style to the Waterman 52V. The BCHR on this pen has faded dark grayish brown. The chasing is worn but still visible. The imprints are also worn and only partially readable. The ring top is missing, but the gold-filled lever has no brassing. This pen, however, houses a superb flex nib. The 14kt. Moore #2 is a wet writing XF (0.3mm) that flexes with ease up to a nice BB (1.6mm) line. The feed is plenty wet as well. This nib really borders between super flex and wet noodle. What really sets it off is the superb responsiveness. This is a great nib for artists and calligraphic work such as copperplate style.
