Wahl Gold-Filled Ring Top – Super Flex

Wahl Gold-Filled Ring Top – Super Flex (On Ebay)

This little Wahl gold-filled ring top is a beauty. The condition is excellent. There is no brassing and really hardly any significant marks. There is a very slight ding on the end of the barrel (see pics), and there is some scratching under the cap from screwing the cap on and off. The wave pattern etched into the pen really catches the light and looks gorgeous. There is no personalization on this pen. The only real flaw is that the lever doesn’t quite hug tightly against the body when and sticks out just a bit (see pics), but the lever and bar work just fine. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is pure joy to use. It will spoil you. It writes wet and butter smooth. It’s a 0.5mm F / M nib has a bit of stubbing character to it. It flexes with ease and some really nice responsiveness up to BBB+ (1.8mm). The flow keeps up great. This is a durable, portable take everywhere (nib up of course) that feels similar to a #2 pencil when posted but with a massively superior writing feel. And it has an awesome flex nib.
