Wahl Gold-Filled Pen #3 – Super Flex

Wahl Gold-Filled Pen #3 – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is a lovely Wahl Gold-Filled pen (not a ring top as stated in the sample). These Wahls come in various sizes. This is a middling size with a #3 nib and comes with a clip as opposed to a ring top. The body is in excellent condition with no dings that I could find nor any personalizations. There is only a touch of brassing on the end of the barrel due to posting the cap. Any other wear is very minor. It still looks beautiful. The #3 Wahl nib is a smooth XF (0.3mm) that has good flow but isn’t overly wet. The range of flex on this nib is impressive going from XF (0.3mm) to BBB+ (1.8mm). Ease of flex is a bit on the stiffer side as is typical for Wahl and Eversharp nibs, due to their generally thicker build than some of their contemporaries. It’s a durable high quality vintage Wahl with a great nib.
