Wahl-Eversharp Doric – Wet Noodle (SOLD)

Wahl-Eversharp Doric Blue Shell with “FLEXIBLE” Nib – Wet Noodle – (See Price Here)

Here is Wahl-Eversharp Doric in a beautiful blue. What I think Wahl called “blue shell.” This is a vac-filling modeling comes with the rarer white gold trim. The body looks great with very minimal scratching. There is also no signs of any crazing or crystalizing of the celluloid. The clip looks great with no signs of plate loss. The band does have a little bit of brassing here and there. I replaced the plunger and rejuvenated (rather than replaced) the packing seal. Personally, I agree with the pen restorers who see no need to replace the seal if they original can be rejuvenated. I also had to put in a replacement pin at the top of the section as the original was missing. There is also a small chip out of the top of the section threads inside the barrel. This blemish has no effect on functionality and is completely hidden inside the barrel. The pen fills extremely well. Something to note, this cap does not post. Or at least it posts very, very loosely, but I find it more than comfortable unposted. The 14kt. Eversharp “Flexible” nib is a wonderfully springy and smooth writing XF. For reasons I cannot determine, when the pen sits unused for a few hours or so it needs a second to start writing. Once it starts, it never runs dry. It reminds me of some modern Platinum pens in that regard. The flex is fantastic. This isn’t a paintbrush soft, but it is wonderfully easy to flex and has a superb springy action. The feed has no trouble keeping up and the range is outstanding going from XF (0.3mm) to BBB (1.7mm). Dorics were made to be top of the line pens, and this pen definitely exemplifies that quality.
