Mabie Todd Swan – Medium Flex (SOLD)

Mabie Todd Swan – Medium Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a nice made in England Mabie Todd Swan #3360. The pen is made of smooth black hard rubber, which has faded to a dark brown. Some of the perks of this particular model is that the threads are actually metal, and the section screws out. This gold filled trim is in great condition with no brassing or much in the way of blemishes. The imprints are all nice and crisp. The only fault perhaps is that the lever is a bit stiff. The 14kt. “Swan” #3 nib is a beautiful writing F/M (0.5mm). It is wet and beautifully smooth. If you are looking for a nice writing vintage pen, it would be hard to do better. It does have some flex with some great rang producing swells all the way up to 1.8mm. The nib, however, is a bit on the stiff side, which is why I graded it as a “medium flex”.
