  1. Hi!. I own a beauty Wahl Eversharp desk fountain pen. It was a gift my mother received n the 1950's. I think it's an ebonite Signature model manufactured between 1920 and 1930, but im not sure. The base is engraved "WAHL EVERSHARP-GOLD FILLED MADE IN CHICAGO, U.S.A.". The nib "WAHL EVERSHARP, 14 K, 2". Somebody know something about?. Thanks!. Jorge.
  2. I wanted to share with you the repair of a a crumbled barrel end of a gorgeous oversize Wahl Eversharp Doric in cathay color. A soon as I get this pen (50$) I had the bad idea to push a little on the crumbled crown from the barrel end and boom, it broke up in pieces... Here is the initial state... I cleaned the end barrel removing all the crumbled celluloid. I decided to rebuild the Barrel end crown using another broken doric cap in cathay color (junior size) (also crumbled at the end): here is this cap (yellow arrow shows instable cracks, I got it on ebay for 30$): I first removed a

    My New Little Friend

    Just got this interesting little feller...it's marked "Wahl", so it's pre-merger. This probably also explains the engraving style. Anyway, into the shop it will go. Here's a picture:

    Need Help To Identify This Model

    Hello Wahl Eversharp experts! I have acquired one vintage Wahl Eversharp pen, and hadn't had a chance to ask seller which model is this (see photos). It is probably 1930's or 1940's... maybe even later. I've tried to find some information online with no luck so far. I have another older pen, from 1910 or 1912, but it was easy to identify Tempoint pen with Penrite visible on the cap. But this one - except it is obviously a Gold Seal - no clue which model it is. So - if anyone recognizes it - by all means please share the info. Thanks!
  5. I saw this pen on eBay, and could not resist. It looks to need a new sac, a full polish and re-plating to fix all of the brassing, especially on the tassies (rings at both ends of the pen). This will probably take a few months of working with it a few minutes intermittently, but I suspect it will be rather nice when complete. If I have the identity wrong, feel free to straighten me out.

    Doric Pen Burping

    Hi all, this has to be the right forum to ask this question so I really hope to get some useful input. I've recently bought this Wahl Eversharp Doric 2nd generation, senior saphhire blue with no.9 adjustable nib and a shut off valve in tip top condition. It has its filling mechanism repaired by a renowned pen restorer very recently. The pen burps. I am trying to pin point the source of the problem. One thought is the obvious: there is a leak somewhere. Another is the possibility that ink remaining in the feed during filling, drops down eventually. Another possibility is that the pen is j
  7. I bought this pen on eBay recently and thought I'd stumbled on a wet noodle pen (seller had this in all caps in the title) for a steal at ~$62. Problem is, this pen is almost certainly not a wet noodle, as defined by going off of what I know of them, based on me trying to flex the tines (which are about as flexible as an Ahab (so not very flexible at all), and much sharper, for those wondering). There's a fair amount of scratching, damage, and bite marks to it, which brings me to my next point. The section and barrel won't come apart, and the lever filler clip stops at a certain point. As some

    Wahl-Eversharp Doric Morocco

    Hey everyone, sorry to bother this sub with an unpolite how much is worth it kind of post but I would like to rehome this pen since it deserves to be used and appreciated. The pen is (I believe) a Wahl eversharp Doric Morocco, standard size fitted with a new sac, unluckily the sled it's missing and thatì's the only issue with the pen. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jpav1bw4z7xydwy/AADqcnVYE-qkny1xpasBQDf-a?dl=0 what would be a fair price? thanks in advance

    Vintage Ribbed Ink Sac

    Just opened a Wahl Black Pyralin Deco Band and was surprised to see that the ink sac was still intact (although completely ossified). Was even more surprised to see that the sac was ribbed rather than smooth. Any idea if this would indicate an original sac from the early 1930’s when the pen was produced?
  10. Dear all. I'm looking for a gold Wahl Eversharp epn. I found this (see attached file), but I see that include a New York Nº3 nib. Is that the right (original) nib? I can not see any 'Wahl' imprint on it, and I dont want to buy a pen with a replacement nib. Does some Wahl Eversharp gold pens include that kind of nibs? Regards, Wahl Eversharp pen nib.pdf Wahl Eversharp pen nib.pdf

    Good Pen Or Mixed Parts ?

    Looking at a Black Wahl pen that is roughly 4 3/4" long . It has a faceted barrel like a Doric but has a round cap like an Equipoised pen . The cap has the Gold Seal over the clip which is rhe roller ball type with two narrow bands at the bottom . It is a lever filler . Have not had it in hand and cant post pictures but was hoping one of the Wahl collectors on here might be able to id this as correct or mixed . It is on an auction with only a couple of days left . If it goes cheap enough I would buy it as a user even if mixed but would not want to pay too much for a parts pen if that is the ca
  12. Here is a tutorial on how to repair a pen I love: Wahl Eversharp Doric Second generation with plunger Filler. Hope this could help the aficionados... And please forgive my bad English... Properties of the filling system: The filling system looks like early Onoto's: it is kind of "reverse syringe" called the "one shot vacuum filler" by Eversharp. To fill the pen you have to pull the piston syringe, then dip the pen in ink and finally push the piston: it fills with ink. When you push the piston, a vacuum is created behind the piston which is released as the piston comes close to the proximal

    How To Tighten Up A Loose Section

    Hello, I have a couple of older fountain pens Mabie Todd, Wahl, and Waterman that have loose sections. One is BCHR, the others are celluloid. The section with the nib and sac are loose and you can easily turn them in the body or worse they can slide out with a little pressure and or come off with the cap being unscrewed and get stuck in the cap. I've read that in the olden days they used shellac but I don't want to make servicing the pen difficult. Especially on 70-90 year old pens that are now more brittle and delicate. Would a drop of shellac vs shellacking the whole section that fits i
  14. The first hour was spent trying to get the lever and slotted piece that goes into the bottom of the barrel to stay together while trying to insert both at once. Then I found a work around online which ended up working on the second try and in less than 5 minutes.
  15. I am hoping that someone can give me a little information about this desk set that I picked up at a yard sale. I just thought it would look good on my desk to begin with but now I'm a little more curious about the model or style and era that it was produced. Thanks in advance for any help.

    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
  17. I recently bought a second generation Doric oversize with gorgeous No 9 nib. When I disassembled the pen for cleaning, I was disappointed to find that the slider was broken and that the little tabs which kept the slider in place was missing: I decided to sen it to a nibmeister I know in Spain but he told me that it was impossible to repair, I then tried to send it to very famous nibmeisters in the USA but it was the same answer... So I decided to repair it myself. The first thing I did was to weld little pieces of 900 silver just on the little prongs that hold the nib in place, but the
  18. I have a Doric ringtop arriving today: junior-size, named "Tootie". The pen looks in nice shape but the nib is described as a bit of a mess. Of course I'd like an Adjustable nib (a #3 to #5), but what else would fit in such an instrument?
  19. When helping my grandmother move some things we stumbled on 2 old fountain pens that belonged to my late grandfather. A Conklin Crescent Filler Trademark 40 and a Wahl Eversharp 14k Gold Seal. Neither is in working order but they may be easily repairable. I was hoping for some info on the two and maybe some advice on what to do with them. I they can be repaired we may keep them or sell 1 or both depending on how valuable they would be. The Conklin feels like it's made of black plastic (Bakelite?) with a zig-zag textured pattern on the pen and cap. The body of the pen has "CONKLIN CRESCENT

    Help Identifying This Oxford

    Hello, I recently managed to get this wahl Oxford, while it was in a bad shape the nib was good an after a sac replacement and a through cleaning and minor polish it was back to its former glory. my question is can anyone give me more information about it and the model, and given that it came with an omas nib (super flex), would you say that it was a frankenpen? Many thanks Jack http://i.imgur.com/9bFIF7p.jpg http://i.imgur.com/UVaOkuX.jpg

    Wahl-Eversharp Everberry

    The names Wahl-Eversharp are venerable ones from the golden age of the fountain pen. And the brand has been restarted by Emmanuel Caltagirone in Italy and Syd Saperstein in the United States. We don't really here much about the modern recreations on FPN, not that I pay much attention, but perhaps they're represented at the various pen shows. The pens and inks are carried by some of the usual online/B&M shops. They also have two inks which I bought last year at some point, but these don't seem readily available from the various shops, only from their own website. They're both blues. This
  22. So, I bought this in an online auction a couple weeks ago. Knew it wasn't mint, but upon receiving and inspecting realized quickly that it was on the lower end of user grade instead of "Good" as described. I had intended to flip it, but now am unsure whether that's worthwhile. So the question: To what grade could professional restoration return this pen? I have about $175 in it at the moment, but really have no idea what it's worth in this state and whether restoration would increase it's worth enough to consider selling it. It's a pleasant pen, and the nib is really a lovely writer, but I h
  23. 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 !
  24. Hi Everyone, Check out this vintage Wahl Eversharp Canada poster that I found hanging in my garage! The photography is not great but at least you can see it. If you like it, I'll put up a better version. The canoe even says "Canuck." I bought a Wahl Eversharp to celebrate this find. Julie R. Canada
  25. Somehow i'm came in possess of a Wahl Eversharp Doric Junior for 10€ plus shipping costs - with a parker 51 and a nice waterman's in the same lot It's in really good shape and i want to service it - i can ear the sound of a shattered sac from the inside - but i know almost nothing about it's construction - is my first Eversharp too - so i've some questions for someone more expert than me: - is the section friction fit? - the lever seems to be blocked by the oxided sac but if it will not be so, what type of lever/pressure-bar system i'll need to repair? - the nib/feed unity seems to be ok - a
