Wahl-Eversharp Doric with “Flexible” Nib – Super Flex

Wahl-Eversharp Doric with “Flexible” Nib – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

This Doric is in beautiful condition. The black body has little signs of wear. There is a little spot of  wear on the end of the barrel (the facet edges are a little worn) from the lip of the cap when posted. The Dorics had robust quality trim, and it really show. The gold-filled trim almost looks brand new. No brassing whatsoever. This pen also comes with the ink shut off system (shuts the ink off from the feed when the pen is capped), and it’s one of the rare instances where it actually works great. The 14kt. Eversharp “Flexible” nib is pure pleasure to write with. It’s a wet F (0.4mm) that feels soft and pillowy. The wet flow, though not gushing, really brings out the shading qualities in an ink. The flex is pretty decent. I gave it a “super flex” grade, but I would put this on the lower end of super flex. It has good range going up to BBB (1.7mm) and decent responsiveness. Ease of flex is on the stiffer side of spectrum for “super flex.” Still, you can do some great flex writing with it. The is a gorgeous, top tier quality pen (think Pelikan, Omas, etc. quality) with a phenomenal F nib. You won’t find better. Plus, it has vintage flex.
