Wahl Ring Top – Good/Super Flex (SOLD)

Wahl Ring Top – Good/Super Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a Wahl ring top in beautiful celluloid pattern. There is some color change, particularly on the body, where the original greenish pearl pattern has browned. The gold filled trim is in beautiful condition with no brassing, and even every little scratching or indications of it’s age. The imprint still looks good as new. The 14kt. Wahl #2 is a beauty. It’s a wonderful writing XF that is smooth, soft and elegant. It also has some very nice flex. I have graded it “Good/ Super” only because the ease of flex is a bit stiffer than what I’d like for a “Super Flex”. However, the responsiveness and ink flow still make this a very nice flex nib capable of some very nice work. And the range (0.3mm to 1.5mm) is good enough especially considering it’s responsiveness. This is still a beautiful pen with a lot of years left in it.
