Mabie Todd S.F. – Super Flex

Here is a very nice made in New York Mabie Todd Swan Self-filler (lever filler). The body is black chased hard rubber (BCHR) which is still quite dark with only a little fading. The chasing also looks very good, as do the imprints. The nickel-filled clip and lever have a little bit of wear on them, the ball of the clip especially, but overall they are still in a nice condition. The 14kt. Swan nib is a beauty. It presents a very smooth, soft and decently wet writing experience even though it’s an XF (0.3mm). The flex in this nib comes quite easy, though not quite at a wet noodle level, and ranges up to BBB+ (1.8mm). The responsiveness of the flex excellent rivaling or superior to many wet noodles. Overall, this is everything we love about vintages pens giving both a wonderful writing experience and the ability to switch into some fine flex work.
