The 234 1/2 Deluxe was made '52-54 only....a standard sized pen like the regular 234 1/2. Meisterstuck clip and a different cap band.

 Semi-flex KOB....a writing nib, thinner than modern's B nibs.

 

The 236 looks medium-large; which was the size of the 146 back then also.

www.nibs.com/blog/nibster-writes/nibs-germany      Info on Bock nibs

 

Due to Mauricio's improved definition of Super-flex, I try not use the term Easy Full Flex, but fail...sigh.

 

Semi-flex is an “almost” flex; not a ‘flex’ nib. It is great for regular writing with a touch of flair. It can give you some fancy; but it is not made for real fancy writing. For bit more of that get a maxi-semi-flex. Both spread tines 3X.  Those are not "Flex" nibs. 

 

Wider than Normal does not exist. Wider than Japanese does. Every company has it's very own standard + slop/tolerance. Developed from the users of it's pens and inks only; not the users or inks of other companies pens. The size you grind a nib to, is your standard only. Paper and ink matter to nib width. Thank god for 1/2 sizes or it would be boring.

I'm jealous.  I had a 236 for many years.  It had a silky smooth nib and a "STOFHAAS" (German stationer) imprint on the cap.  Sadly, I FedEx'ed it to a restorer a year ago and it never arrived.  I got some money from FedEx but I miss that pen.

Yeah mine is a beauty.  No imprints on mine other than the factory ones.  My biggest fear is the loss of one in the mail.  I haven't put it into daily rotation yet.  It's inked up at home though.  I have it filled with toffee brown.  It holds a ton of ink.
