Partly by accident I purchased something called a Wahl Command Performance pen today.

 

My long suit is Mabie Todd, and I know practically zero about Wahl-Eversharp.  Here's a snap of the pen I have purchased, which I expect will arrive next week.

Perhaps one of you Wahl enthusiasts could tell me something about it?

 

Thanks in advance.

Thank you very much.  I feel a bit embarrassed - a senior moment perhaps - that I didn't simply look this up.

 

Apparently, I have learned, there was a gold plated model called the Golden Award.  Naturally I am hoping that this one is to be the genuine article!

The pic appears to be a smooth finish, which wold be the 14K model. The gold filled ones have patterns.  The teardrop nib imprint also goes along with the 14K model

 

Here is an ad with a date of 1945 in the corner
