It took me some time to figure out what someone over on the Reddit fountain pen forum was using. All I saw was a close-up of the nib of his fountain pen. Turns out it was an adjustable nib on an Wahl-Eversharp.
I found several on ebay and managed to snag it today. Is it shallow to say that this is the first pen I ever purchased for the looks alone? I normally buy Esterbrooks or vintage Waterman pens.
Can you tell me if the adjustable nib was used on any other Wahl-Eversharp or is it unique to the Dorics?
And one last thing, I am assuming this might need a restored (or at least an ink sac replacement). Are there any issues I should be aware of (peculiar to the model)...I mean-is it better to send of for restoration or attempt at home? I have such a crush on this pen that I don't want to mess it up.
Thank you in advance for any advice. Here are some pictures of the pen.
