Wahl Blue Marble Ring Top – Good / Super Flex

Wahl Blue Marble Ring Top – Good / Super Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is a Wahl vest pen ring top in the gorgeous blue marble with gold-filled trim. The body of this pen is in great condition with only some light scratches from normal use. The gold-filled trim is in good shape as well. The ring top has a little bit of brassing. The bands maybe have a little bit of wear, but it’s not very noticeable. The lever is in good shape, though it is a little loose. It works quite well though. The original imprints (which were very light to begin with as all Wahls were) are still easily readable. The 14kt. Wahl #2 is wonderful, wet writing F that is smooth and elegant. I’ve graded the flex as “good flex” approaching “super flex.” Range is decent going up to 1.6mm, but ease of flex is on the stiffer side. Responsiveness is quite good. Overall, this is a great writing vintage pen that has some nice flex capabilities.
