    Offering two vintage Wahl Eversharp Gold Seal pens for sale, both with very flexible nibs. I'm working on a grail pen and have also decided to switch to italic nibs exclusively so these beauties need a new home. 1. Wahl Eversharp Gold Seal *Decoband* Oversize -- $575 Nib: This pen features a huge 14kt nib marked "flexible." And it is very flexible. Filling system: Lever-filler (new sac.) Color: The colorway is the very attractive and deep gold/green marbling. It's bright, without any darkening or discoloration. General: The overall condition is very good, having been lightly restored (with a new sac) before I bought it at the Philadelphia Pen Show in early 2020. Very clean overall, and without any brassing on the cap bands and clip. Very minor on the sides of the lever, but not substantial or distracting. 2. Wahl Eversharp Gold Seal Fullsize -- $475 Nib: This pen features a large 14kt nib marked "flexible" that lives up to its name. Filling system: Lever-filler (new sac.) Color: This is the red coral colorway and is gorgeous. Very bright, without any discoloration, staining, or darkening. General: The pen is in excellent condition for its age, without any brassing, etc. Was lightly restored by Watch & Write boutique in Switzerland (from whom I bought it early in 2020.)

    With a lot of regret I offer this amazing pen for sale. I had Shawn Newton make me this beautiful pen with ebonite I selected, and an exquisite super-flex #2 Waterman nib I had out of an old broken BCHR Waterman 52 I had. The nib is spectacular, Fto BBB effortlessly, with beautiful return. It is not a 'wet noodle' per se, as it can write a plain fine line perfectly well, with a light hand. This is an EYEDROPPER pen. It does not post. The reason I am selling it is that it is just too wide for my very small hand. It is similar to a Pelikan M800 or Montblanc 146 in width. In addition, I find I do not care for the eyedropper fill style. Hence I have used it very little; there is essentially no wear on this pen. All I have is a phone camera so the photos are not very good, and I apologize for that.

    Waterman Yellow Nib Fever

    As a lefty (with atrocious penmanship), I have a soft spot for Waterman’s Yellow nibs. In turn, the collection has steadily grown. What struck me today when looking them over is how different the nib shape and profiles are from one to another. Additionally, flexibility varies significantly. In the close-up photos of the nibs from left to right: (1) Canadian #5. (2,3) US #7’s. (4) Canadian #7. (5) Canadian 14k #7. (6) US 18k #7. By far, the 18k nib requires the least amount of pressure to spread the tines and lays down a strong wet line. The #5 is quite springy and flexible. The 14k nib is
  6. Well, I did not know where to put it - nibs&tines, pen reviews or else So this seems a good forum. I pursue flex almost from the beginning of my fountain pen journey. I was fortunate enough not starting with modern flexes, but with a vintage one. I fancied a vintage pen, and bought one just because it was cheap, looked nice and I knew the brand. Parker Slimfold - in terms of size it was a disappointment (i didn check its size or asked the seller), - but the nib was fantastic. Right away i fell in love with "flex". Bought another vintage (Wyvern) - also great. Then started looking at m

I recently exhanged the nib in my Kaigelu 316 pen with a Titanium Bock nib from Beaufort Ink (UK). http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah12/phzervas/93F82412-A163-48E1-88BB-E5B4EE7B8D44_zpsbuvqysnl.jpg http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah12/phzervas/2B0A8CA6-CA0B-47DF-93CF-76770C392C45_zpsslyblstm.jpg http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah12/phzervas/3AB1E03C-FFDA-4592-9E5D-D967C4E528BD_zpsrgsjhhi3.jpg http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah12/phzervas/D0D6918C-DC5F-4D6B-9047-85330A442456_zpsp0hhmnri.jpg http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah12/phzervas/0DFF4BB4-911C-481C-BAA2-AF4206DD2EC7_

    My First Dip Nib...

    Hello kind sirs and ladies, I recently acquired this Mabie Todd 313 long dip nib that had been installed in a Watermans #12 eyedropper. This is my first dip nib, my first Mabie Todd, and my oldest pen by at least a couple decades. A sample via dip test follows below. Best regards, Eric
  9. Recently I found one of my fountain pen could be installed with a dip pen nib, so I quickly grabbed a compatible nib and try it. It really works like a charm But it's an eyedropper pen, I want a more easy fill mechanism, then I go to the internet and see if I can find a pen with the same nib & and feed but with piston fill mechanism. At last, I found it in an India internet pen shop. Due to some of my friends also want to buy this pen, I was going to buy about 20 pens from him and started a price negotiation. During price negotiation, I found an interesting flex nib in his pen sh
  10. Hello all, I'll start this post - or thought excersize - with a question: - Do you feel that current fountain pen industry is slowly moving toward re-introduction of proper flexible nibs? It occurred to me, while watching fp reviews online, reading etc - that in each one of them there is at least one segment dedicated to "line variation" (ex. Stephen Brown, Matt ...etc) or "Flexibility". Also, a lot of excitement is raised around any pen/nib claimed to have "that vintage flex feel". As my comment on one Aurora 88 review by sbrebrown on YouTube states: "Maybe I am an idealist with unreal

    A Wahl Eversharp Confession

    Dear all, I'm hooked to Wahl Eversharp pens. And I'm here to admit that (with perhaps a short quasi-question). It didn't happened by design or by my own will - but by coincidence and through circumstances. When I got into flexible nibs, vintage pens and so on - and started to investigate more, I was drawn by default to Waterman pens. What I have seen and read it was sufficient for me to believe that's the way to go. While trying to find a decent 52 with super-flexible nib, one that writes exactly as what I've seen in videos and reviews, photos... I ended up purchasing two Wahl pens. On
  12. I think this is a very rare find. Due to the looks and construction of the pen I dated it around 1930, but I could not find any information about these pens on the net, so maybe somebody can help out here. Appearance and size: 10/10 As you can see this is a midsize pen, comfortable to hold and by far different than the mostly bland today's Pilots. It was made I think for export since it had english letters on it. The cellulloid? is quite stunning, one of the most beautiful pens I have ever seen. Also it is in a terrific shape, doesn't seem to have any discoloration, only maybe some tiny bras
  13. Has anybody seen or reviewed the new Stipula Spash? It's supposed to be a demonstrator with a flexible steel nib! http://fpgeeks.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/stipula-splash-fountain-pens-posted.jpg Here's a link to one. http://www.fountainpenhospital.com/Index_Showcase.asp?BOD=/collections/collection.asp%3FMFG%3D37%26CK%3D1813
  14. Hi ! I recently bought a gorgeous wahl eversharp equipoised (the balance-like model) Unfortunately the nib is missing... Do you know someone or do you have tips on where to find the nib and feed ? The best would be a flexible nib... Thank you very much !
  15. Hi everyone, I have a PILOT NAMIKI Falcon Elabo fountain pen with Soft Medium nib. Several months ago, my co-worker tried my pen for writing, he did not know about flexible nib and he pushed so strong that the nib got a crack. (I attached an drawn image for the cracked nib). I really want to buy another nib to replace the broken one but I cannot buy it in my country (Vietnam). Many shops sell the pen, but none of them sell the nib only. I want to buy a Soft Fine nib only. Anybody know where I can buy it online and how much it is? Any help is appreciated very much! Thanks.
  16. This thread is about people who are willing to contribute with a link and possibly a short description to: articles, posts, discussions, technical articles, pictures, diagrams, videos or other instructional info, armamentarium needed, etc anything that could be relevant on ways to add flex to a fountain pen nib. Everyone's input will be highly appreciated. Any link deemed useful for someone when they tried there own flex nib modification that they are willing to share with the forum will be welcome here. Hopefully at the end, the list of references accumulated will help pen users to hav
  17. Hello everyone! I'm brand new to the world of fountain pens, and have a couple beginner's questions regarding my new Retro 51 Tornado. It came with a medium nib, which writes nicely, but I'd like to purchase a nib that allows me to vary my line stroke and write more calligraphically and personally. Before I look into flexible or italic nibs, however, I was wondering if my pen can even take replacement nibs; the nib doesn't seem to come apart from the nib assembly/ feed, so even if I knew the correct size to buy I'm not sure if my pen could take it. Do I have to purchase an entire new nib a
  18. Hi all, I've been wanting to purchase a vintage flex pen for a while now, but can't seem to find any reputable places that sell them. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  19. Dear FPN Members, I want to share a piece of urushi laquered ebonite with you: The basis is an indian made ebonite blowfiller, with a very nice vintage flexible Wahl Eversharp Skyline NIb. I painted the pen in the style of the tsugaru nuri technique, with high quality natural japanese urushi laquers. The laquer has been cured in a controlled envirorment, with about 79% humidity. It took about a 2 months to do the pen, The following steps where done: 1.) three base layers of black urushi (cured for 48hrs each), fine sanding in between each layer 2.) adding the splotches with a painting
  20. Often times when I see wet noodle wahl's (or any wet noodles for that matter) they lay down too much ink to where when not flexed the toppling amounts of ink make any color of ink just look black and you get no shading/color variation. I heard somewhere that this is because the ink demand for wet noodle's is so much since they flex so easily they are flexed like 40-50% of the time so it needs a lot of ink burping out to keep up with that feed. This is why when you fully flex a wet noodle and write in big letters the ink looks perfectly fine, but once you begin normal writing without flex, sinc
  21. I'll do a full review after I've had more time to use it but I wanted to share some of Shawn Newton's most recent work. Some of the pictures were taken by me, others by Shawn. Shawn's photos are being used with his permission. http://i.imgur.com/iwZMEoY.jpg A while back I had the idea of having Shawn make me a pen like the Hemingway except with solid 14k trim. Shawn was totally up for it and when he and his jeweler started making nibs, he asked if I wanted one. It was a risk - I was the first customer to buy one of these nibs so I had no idea how it would write. I trusted that Shawn would ma
  22. So, over on another calligraphy-oriented forum I just posted a review of sorts I thought some here might also appreciate. It's my first attempt at comparing some of the vintage nibs I've collected accumulated. For my first group, I chose flexible nibs that all have something to do with School: either labeled as "school" or "college" or "university", or, in the case of the Palmer Method completely associated with something you do in school. These are all written using the same straight holder, using Diamine Registrar's ink, and are all vintage. I included a Spencerian no. 1 at the top a
  23. I finally received my FPR Guru Flex today in the mail and it is a very interesting pen. Interesting in the sense that I can't make up my mind about it. Here are my thoughts from the first time using it. http://i.imgur.com/kWKuieKl.jpg Aesthetics: 5/10 I don't think this is an ugly pen, however, it isn't pretty. I like demonstrators, especially when they are well done. This, unfortunately, isn't the most refined of demonstrators. The points where the plastic is joined looks very sloppy and the threads suffer from the same problem. The pocket clip works well, but looks very very cheap. This

    Softest/flexiest Pelikan 400 Nibs?

    Hi guys, looking at potentially getting a Pelikan 400 sometime soon, but, of course, there are so many differnet ones that have been made. Friction fit script, screw in unit script, logo, logo in 400N, logo in 400NN, logo in 400NN M&K... which ones usually will have the most flexibility (or easiest flex)? I won't be using this for calligraphy or anything, but I do like to put some flair on my signatures and writing every so often and I'd love to have some breathing room for how far I can push it. Thanks! (Also, is there anything else I should know before buying one? This kind of purchase
  25. Hey Everyone, Many of you responded to my post "Win one of 7 new high performance flex pens" a while ago, and I was very pleased you took the time to reply to such an exhaustive survey. Well, I've been working like a dog making a lot of mistakes these past few months, and at last, here are a few ideas in the form of flex fountain pens I think you'll enjoy. You've probably already seen the writing samples I've posted in the poll posting, so I won't burden you with another one here. User testing was very positive so far. Now, we get to talk about design.
