Fine / Medium - Semi Flex - a lovely writer!  

Lever Filled Fountain Pen: restored and ready to write

 

Condition:

The fountain pen is in overall very good condition.

Servicing:

The nib has been tuned and writes beautifully with a good degree of flex and line variation (see writing sample). A new inc sac has been installed and the pen is ready to write

Imperfections 

The pen is over 100 years old, it does show its age, the hardened rubber is discoloured particularly around the barrel threads  - if you are after a pen which looks like new - this isn't it! However if you are looking to buy a pen which writes beautifully, this one might be for you. 

 

Writing Style: 

The 14k Gold Nib has been tuned and writes beautifully giving a good degree of flex and line variation. Please see the writing sample in the photo gallery
