Wahl BCHR Flat Top – Super Flex

Wahl BCHR Flat Top – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

This is a 100 year old Wahl Flat Top in black hard rubber. The black hard rubber has faded to a dark, blackish brown. The Greco style chasing on the body has faded but is still visible. Just a little bit of texture left to it. The pinstripe chasing on the cap (which was originally pretty faint anyway, is almost all gone). The gold filled trim is in excellent condition with no brassing at all. This pen was definitely well cared for. This Wahl also has a gem of nib. The 14kt. Wahl #2 is a very lovely XF (0.3mm) with great flow. Writes quite smooth for an XF. Flex is fantastic with a huge range going up to BBB+ (1.8mm). The responsiveness is very, very snappy. I almost rated this a “wet noodle” due to the quality of the responsive nib, but I couldn’t quite go there because it is just a bit too firm. Still almost anyone would call this a “super flex” or “full flex” pen.
