Mabie Todd Swan 3161 – Super Flex (SOLD)

P1080316

Mabie Todd Swan 3161

Here is Mabie Todd Swan model # 3161. It is a lever filler in black celluloid. The pen is in really nice condition. The body looks really good with only light surface scratching from normal use. The gold-filled trim also looks really nice with only the slightest bit of wear on the clip and lever. The section on this model threads into the body making it easy access to the sac. There just isn’t much to write about other than it looks great. The 14kt. Swan #1 is a lovely writer. It has a wet and glassy smooth flow. It is slightly stubbish and slightly oblique F which adds some character to your writing. The flex ranges from F (0.4mm) to BBB (1.7mm), which is fantastic. The flex is on the firmer side of “super flex,” but everything else (responsiveness, flow, line variation) ring all the bells for super flex. You can definitely do some great flex work with it. Overall, a lovely Swan in excellent condition.
