Wahl Gold-Filled Vest Pen – Super Flex

Wahl Gold-Filled Vest Pen – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a larger size Wahl Gold-Filled vest pen with clip. This is a good size gold-filled pen. There are only a few small dings here and there on the pen. I only counted 4, and they aren’t very noticeable. You have to hold the pen at the angle to see most of the them. The edges on the end of the barrel have some brassing, but otherwise its free of plate loss. There is no personalization on the pen. The pattern etched on the pen still looks great. The 14kt. Wahl #3 nib is a rare XXXF (0.1mm) nib. It writes pretty smooth for how fine it is. The flex on this pen is also quite nice. It doesn’t need much swell due to how fine the nib is, but it goes quite easily up to BB (1.4mm). I would say ease of flex is on the lower end of “super flex,” but the XXXF makes it feel very responsive. These XXXF flex nibs are not easy to come by, and this one comes on a durable, gold-filled Wahl.
