14k Gold DURO Nib - FLEX Nib

Lever Filled Fountain Pen: restored and ready to write

 

Overview

Stunning 'oversized' vintage fountain pen, fully restored by Grand Vision Pens - sporting a delightful responsive nib which flexes a little and writes very smoothly.

 

Condition

The fountain pen is in near mint condition.

 

Restoration 

The pen has been fully dismantled, ultrasonically cleaned and polished, fitted with a new ink sac and nib tuned. 

 

Imperfections 

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

The clip and lever bar do show some microscratches, and the clip is ever so slightly faded otherwise a superb shiny clean example in near mint condition 

 

Writing Style

The 14k Gold Nib has been tuned and writes beautifully, this is a classic example of a DURO nib with a hint of flex - not a firm nib like many DURO's, there is some line variation from a fine to a medium.

Overall a springy responsive nib

Please take a look at the writing samples in the photo gallery for a closeup
