14k Gold SWAN '1' Nib - DOUBLE BROAD STUB 

Lever Filled Fountain Pen: serviced and ready to write

 

Overview

A juicy double broad stub nib on this lovely Swan - it writes like a paintbrush. A delight for lovers of wet writing nibs which lay down plenty of ink and give plenty of line variation

 

Condition

The fountain pen is in very good condition.

 

Servicing

The pen has been taken apart, cleaned, polished and fitted with a new ink sac

 

Imperfections 

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

The clip has some minor tarnishing and the lever bar also, has evidence of pitting which has been polished out. Otherwise an excellent clean example

The imprints are clear and cosmetically it is a lovely pen to behold 

 

Writing Style

The 14k Gold Nib is a juicy double broad stub nib, a wet writer, but not a gusher, it hasn't feathered on standard 80gm paper. It of offers very nice line variation too

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