Wahl Vest Pen – Wet Noodle

Wahl Vest Pen – Wet Noodle (SEE PRICE HERE)

Here is a Wahl vest pen in BCHR and with the roller ball clip. The hard rubber is still very black with only a little fading. The chasing looks decent with some texture left, but obviously from the close ups you can see a lot of surface marks. To the naked eye, this just gives the pen a matte look. There is some brassing on the cap band and at the crown of the lever. Other than a little brassing on the ball, the clip looks pretty clean. There is an inscription on the side to “C.E. Brahm” the great composer, so this pen is worth a fortune. Just kidding. No idea who he is. The 14kt. Wahl #2 is a soft XF (0.3mm) that has that elegant feel a long tined nib gives you. The nib flexes with ease going up to BB (1.3mm). While that isn’t a huge range, you don’t need it because the snapback on this nib is sublime. In the far right of the writing sample, all the flex is done within a 5mm height. It would be perfect nib for drawing or calligraphy.
