  1. Sometimes a new pen comes along and just shouts, “You need to have me now!” Often these pens come from the big name manufacturers with big advertising budgets designed to whip up the desire of people who have never touched the pen in person. As much as I try not to get sucked into the frenzy vortex, it happens sometimes to the best of us. Then there are magnificent pens that come to you unlooked for and seemingly from somewhere you would never expect. The new Wahl-Eversharp Decoband fits into this category. The W-E pen company was resurrected several years ago by co-owner Syd Saperstein (kno

    A Lucky Find

    I got lucky in an eBay auction yesterday: a Doric ringtop in Kashmir. The condition seems decent, and I'll replace the Manifold nib with sliderless Adjustable nib that I stripped from the corpse of a ruined pen. You might call the nib ruined, but I call them paintbrush-flexy. When I get the thing I'll post some pictures.

    Problem With Nib (Stub?)

    I have Walh-Eversharp equi-poised fountain pen, it has stub nib. At least I think it is stub, nib leaves wide stroke down and thin sideways. But I just can't make it work with my handwriting! No matter how I try to hold it, it makes it look horrible... Nib is really flexible, wet and smooth. So nothing wrong with the nib, more about "user error". How stub nib should be hold when writing? Do I need to write fast or slow? Also, is there some script that is suitable this kind of nibs? If everything else fails, is it possible to regrind this stub to needlepoint? It has almost no tipping materi
  4. Hello, I have a confession to make. I ran into some issues while restoring a Wahl-Eversharp Skyline, and suffice to say, while I was not the cause of all of them, I handled it like an idiot. I am sorry to both the pen and the kind people that are reading this. The images that follow are slightly graphic. With that out of the way allow me to tell the tale - To remove the barrel I used gentle heat and it felt like the barrel was coming off with no problem. Suddenly, POP! I feared the worse only to find that everything looked normal...or so I thought. I continued to work on the pen; cleaning,
  5. Hello Everyone, I finally created an account today after browsing these forums for the last few years. I am new to vintage pens, but not fountain pens in general. I often go to antique stores to pick up older pens, and can complete simple restorations. In this case I believe I have met my match. I found this Doric for $20.00 at a local antique shop. Since then I have done a simple cleaning of the pen, and was able to free the plunger, along with the adjustment slider. The nib is very whet, and uber flexible... but is as sharp as a knife. The second issue is that the seals seem to hav
  6. I've read the few reviews written about the new Wahl-Eversharp Decoband with the superflex nib, but I haven't seen a review by a woman (or someone with small hands). I know this is an oversize pen, and it weighs 45 grams uncapped. I'm interested in hearing from someone who owns the pen and has small hands. How does the pen feel? Can you write for long periods without fatigue? Does it seem just too big? Unfortunately, I'm too far from civilization to attend one of the big pen pen shows (and I wasn't able to go to the Dallas show this year). Thanks. Susan
  7. Maybe I just haven’t been paying close enough attention to the pen world, but the resurrection of the Wahl-Eversharp pen company slipped right past me. For those of you who haven’t delved into vintage pens or their history, a brief explanation may help. During the Golden Age of fountain pens, the “Big Four” American pen companies were dominant: Conklin, Waterman, Sheaffer, Parker and Wahl-Eversharp. Some of you may think my math is funny, but Conklin went into decline at roughly the same time Wahl-Eversharp was rising to prominence, so there were only four major companies at any given
  8. Wahl-Eversharp is an American pen manufacturer that started making their Pyralin (celluloid) pens in 1927. One year later they added the Personal Point, which was one the first interchangeable nib systems. For more information about the history of the Wahl-Eversharp company, see the links at the bottom of the review. This pen has excited me ever since I first laid my eyes upon it, sitting in an antique store next to a battered and bruised Esterbrook SJ that had seen better days. Twenty dollars later, I walked out with a dirty, unusable, and old Wahl-Eversharp. After some careful restoration,
  9. Hello, I must admit my ignorance as I purchased recently a Wahl Eversharp Skyline with chocolate derby and body off the Ebay. I discovered that the barrel was cracked and the nib section was glued in. I tried warm water to loosen the glue but with no luck. I paid like 7 dollars for the whole pen and that should have told me something. The pen has perfectly alright feed, breather tube, perfectly alright cap and an excellent smooth Wahl Eversharp nib. I was wondering if any one on the FPN can guide me if there is a website where I can purchase barrel and the nib section without a nib and feed.
  10. Midnight shifts are dangerous times when the work is done and the internet beckons. Slumming around Ebay at around 3am a week ago i blearily stumbled my way into the vintage fountain pens. Unsurprisingly there were some very nicely cleaned up and repaired Skylines waiting for a new home. Sadly the one i set my sites on sold with a stratospheric price. And then i found this beauty. Snagged it for a song compared to the other Silver/Grey modern stripe i had been oggling earlier in the week. It is absolutely gorgeous! Not a crack, dent, ding, or major scratch on it. As you can see

    Eversharp Section Without Nipple

    I've replaced the sac in many Wahl-Eversharps, but I've run across two now that baffle me. I must be missing something obvious. Both are small lever fillers with screw-in sections, I don't know the model -- maybe a Bantam? The think is: There is no nibble at the end of the section; it's open. So where does the sac attach? I thought maybe the first had lost a nipple the simply inserted in the opening. But I'm sure the second had all the original parts. The barrel takes only a very small - probably #12 -- sac that actually fits inside the threaded nipple neck, but how would it attach? I thought
  12. I've got a couple of nice little vintage pens with flexible nibs, but I've long thought about a big, robust, modern pen with a flex nib. I mean a good one, not some cheesy something with steel or titanium sorta-flex. I know there are a few options. I have pondered. . . custom Edison with modified 14K flex nibGate City Belmont with modified 14K flex nibnew Wahl-Eversharp DECOBANDMy expectation is that the Belmont would be the least costly and not exactly elegant, but perhaps the most dependable, not having a sac or converter. The Wahl-Eversharp, obviously pricey and a thing of beauty to beh
  13. I believe it's the nib on their new Decoband series, if I remember correct. Curious if anyone has tried it yet/has thoughts they'd like to share
  14. Here's your morning dose of cognitive dissonance. This is a Wahl-Eversharp desk set offered by the guys at Pendemonium. Looks like the Europeans are checking out the competition: http://i.imgur.com/gSifqz8.jpg

    Replacing Sac In Doric

    I have a beautiful Doric pen that I would like to eventually sell but it has a lever that won't budge, and an internal rattle. I'm guessing it needs a new sac. Does anyone have a step by step for taking the pen apart and replacing the sac or can you recommend a good repair person? See photo below of pen.

    Wahl-Eversharp Everberry

    This is a series of ink reviews "blues reviews" covering nearly all the blue inks in my collection that I haven't yet reviewed. This ink a modern ink of the Wahl-Eversharp brand. It's unclear who actually makes the ink. There are two blues: Everberry and Wahlberry. The former is more of a bluish purple, the latter more blue. Tested on Mohawk via Linen, Hammermill 28lb inkjet.

    A Fine Vintage

    I just felt a need to show this off... http://zobeid.zapto.org/image/pens/wahl_monitor/01.jpg I found that on eBay, it didn't cost much. The nib is marked WAHL, the pocket clip says WAHL PEN, and the very faint, barely visible imprint on the cap says MONITOR. I assumed that Monitor was the model name, but a little research suggested that Monitor was actually a sub-brand of Wahl-Eversharp. Most likely what I have here is a Monitor that some pen restorer found with a missing or broken nib and clip, and they went through their bin of Wahl parts until they found some that would fit. So...
  19. Wahl-Eversharp's haven't really been my thing in the past but I have what I think is quite a nice one on the way to me. It should be here tomorrow here are the auction pictures, its second from the left on the bottom of the first picture. It looks to me, with my limited knowledge of eversharps, like a full size Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal in Rosewood. Can anyone who knows more offer any insight? I should be able to take better pics tomorrow. Get this, the lot was only $37.66 shipped! I'm trying (and failing) to not get too excited in case it is horribly damaged or something but I think this lot
  20. The new WAHL-EVERSHARP Classic fountain pen in "Very Red" with Palladium Cap with Gold Trim and the now widely acclaimed Semi-Flex, Gold plated and Ceramic Coated nib is a featured pen in the the magazine's "Hot In August' Article. We are very flattered and pleased that one of our pens was chosen. You can see it on Page 18. There is also a good image of our Tribute to Firefighters Pen on Page 34. I hear that the Pen World August Issue is on its way to subscribers and newsstands now.
