Mabie Todd Swan – Super Flex (SOLD)

Mabie Todd Swan – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a made in New York, Mabie Todd Swan eyedropper with over/under feed in BCHR. This is a 1500/1512 model. The color is a very dark blackish brown. Chasing is still pretty good and imprints are all still clear and readable. The pen also comes with the original Mabie Todd box, which is in pretty good condition. The 14kt. Swan nib writes normally as a smooth XF. It’s wet but not too wet. I love writing with it. The nib has an elegant feel to it. The flex comes easy and has a great range going up to BBBB (2.0mm)! This nib is nearing wet noodle territory, but it isn’t quite there. It has a pretty good snappiness to it as well. This is an all around great vintage eyedropper. Great writing. Great flex.
