  1. I recently discovered and serviced a Wahl Eversharp Doric in Kashmir pattern. The pen is missing a cap. It’s clearly a first generation Doric but I don’t know what size it is. It measures about 11.5cm from nib to barrel end and 10cm without the nib. Here is a size comparison to a WE Doric Coronet in Cathay Green. Its section threads actually go with the Cathay cap but the cap is a little too short for the Kashmir. I know it’s a long shot but I will try to find a cap for it. If not, I will have to sell the pen as parts though it’s now serviced and ready to write. The WE FLEXIBLE nib is very nice so I’d rather find a cap for it. Thank you for your help!

  3. Hello friends. I have a Gold Seal flat top that is refusing to let go of its personal point. I would like to replace the personal point, and have removed the section from the barrel without difficulty. But the personal point refuses to budge. I have: -ultrasonically cleaned the section in Koh-I-Noor pen cleaner (several times) -kept it immersed in clean water for days -used dry heat -tried hot water immersion (160 F) -tried leeching in Pen Potion #7 on several occasions, from the top and the bottom -immersed the entire section and part of the nib in Potion #7 for 48 hrs. No love so far. Do y'all have any suggestions? Nick

    Flex Nib For A Skyline

    I bought a Skyline recently...not my usual thing, but they're so pretty, but the nib was a nail. I've been searching somewhat obsessively for a flexible nib to replace the one in the pen, and I've discovered that the rather breezy assurances that "Oh, yeah, there's all kinds of flex nibs in Skylines" is somewhat overdone. Anyone know the real score?
  6. Hello everyone, I recently picked up an absolutely mint W-E Doric desk pen (in Cashmere, of all places) and was wondering what the correct sac size for it was. It has a #5 adjustable nib and the nipple appears to be slightly more than 1/4" across. I've seen conflicting info from several sources on which size sac to use: Richard Binder's website cites the proper size as 17 or 18 (not quite sure if my pen qualifies as a Doric or a Personal Point) while some other sites give the proper size as 22 (which seems way too big). On a similar note, should I use a regular latex sac or a silicone sac to protect the celluloid (it's a grey-black color and I am unsure if it is prone to discoloration)? Thanks for the help!
  7. Hi ladies & gentlemen! I have a adjustable nib from a Doric but it hasn´t have the trim piece that adjust the wide. Recently I found (waiting it from mail) a broken nib adjustable. It is possibly put the trim from the broken nib to the other nib?? Thanks and excuse my poor school english. Rodrigo
  8. Denmark - country for the Coral red pens. Red is the national colour of Denmark and the coral red pens are unique to this country. This Wahl, Gold Seal & Personal Point in red was made especially for the danish market. Over the years I had one or two Deco Bands in red as well as Equipoised (standard seize). But I never seen this one before!
  9. Poorly documented, largely overlooked The Eversharp Symphony was launched in 1948 and couldn't have had a more auspicious beginning. While the company's previous major model, the Fifth Avenue, had some shortcomings that prevented it from catching on with the public, the company hoped to reproduce some of the success enjoyed by the iconic Skyline model which had achieved sales superiority in the mid 1940s. The Skyline had been designed by famous industrial designer Henry Dreyfuss, and for the Symphony the company went to another famous consumer-goods designer, Raymond Loewy. The first generation Symphony pens (aka model 500) can be partially distinguished by the raised fins on the chrome cap, the brushed stainless steel cap finish with no cap band, and the metal barrel threads. The raised fins create the impression of the cap being sliced lengthwise, and then offset slightly, giving the cap its "slipper" name. The first generation pens were only produced for a year. The second generation simplified some of the Loewy design. Model 701 came out in 1949 and can be identified by the thin gold plated cap band embedded in a shiny stainless steel cap. Additionally, a few new models were added to the product line. The 703 (the "Deluxe" Symphony, photo below) featured a wide gold plated cap band, and the "Golden Symphony" (model 705) had a gold filled cap. A "Luxury" version was created for the bottom level of the product line; hardly luxurious, it featured cheap gold plating and a rounded cap entirely lacking fins. http://www.peytonstreet.com/PSP/blog/symphony_deluxe_set_250.jpg Then came the third version circa 1951. Taking a cue from the "Luxury" pens, the caps lacked the finned design entirely. Documentation indicates a new model was introduced, the "Economy Gold Nib" set, and it is believed to be an all-plastic model. Right around this time Eversharp stopped using the Symphony name, and the pens are frequently found in ads under the name "The NEW Eversharp." Basically, this is where the trail goes cold. Digging a little deeper .... In our new old stock acquisitions we have found several models which share the Symphony shape, nib and filling system, but lack the metal cap which many consider to be a characteristic of the Symphony line. Here's what we've found: Model 713 -- plastic body and cap, thin gold plated cap band, gold plated clip. Small flexible nib. http://www.peytonstreet.com/PSP/blog/713_500.jpg Model 913 -- plastic body and cap, thin chrome plated cap band, chrome plated clip. Small flexible nib. http://www.peytonstreet.com/PSP/blog/913_500.jpg Model ??? -- same as the 713 only lacking a metal cap band, having instead a series of grooves in the plastic where you'd find the cap band. Small flexible nib. http://www.peytonstreet.com/PSP/blog/symphony_linedband_black_500.jpg Model 915 -- same as 913 except with a wider (3/16") lined chrome band. Medium sized nib, the same one as is found on the 701, in both flexible and manifold. http://www.peytonstreet.com/PSP/blog/symphony_915_500.jpg Model 917 -- same as the 913 and 915, only with a very wide chrome cap band. This model featured a larger banner-style Eversharp nib, in both manifold and flexible versions. http://www.peytonstreet.com/PSP/blog/symphony_917_green_500.jpg By 1952, the Symphony and quasi-Symphony pens disappeared from Eversharp's product line as they gave their attention to the Ventura model. We have a feeling that a large quantity of the low end Symphony pens were more or less abandoned out in the distribution channel, especially outside the US, and those are probably the models that we have discovered. Another theory holds that when Parker gobbled up Eversharp in 1957, they continued to produce low end pens under the Eversharp name to use up the surplus of parts, and these may very well be some of those pens. We're hoping that this post will bring more information to light. Surely there must be folks who worked at Eversharp in the 1950s and 1960s, and who will be able to poke holes in our theories and tell us more about these late-late-late model Eversharps.
