14k Gold Swan Nib (1) - SEMI FLEX 

Lever Filled Fountain Pen: serviced and ready to write

 

Condition

The fountain pen is in overall excellent condition.

 

Servicing

It has been cosmetically polished and restored, meaning the cap and barrel shine with a lovely sheen and the gold trim and nib are in superb condition.

 

The nib has been tuned and writes beautifully with a good degree of flex and line variation (see writing samples). 

 

A new inc sac has been installed and the pen is ready to write! 

 

Imperfections 

There are no major imperfections to note, no chips cracks or engravings

There are micro-scratches on the cap and barrel, but otherwise the pen is excellent / near mint

The box is tatty and shows its age, but the original instructions are present and in good condition 

 

Writing Style

The 14k Gold Nib has been tuned and writes beautifully. 

The nib flexes from a fine to a medium / broad and is a delight to write with. 

A medium wet writer, it lays down plenty of ink, and is everything one might expect from a Swan No.1 Nib - lovely
