Overview

A rare and beautiful WAHL Eversharp Doric fountain pen in Kashmir green carrying a 14 carat gold 'Manifold nib'.

Eversharp produced over 18 variations of a nib in their time, these variations were orientated towards their practical application. 'Signature' nibs, were designed for writing signatures, 'accountant' nibs were extra fine for handwritten spreadsheets 

Manifold nibs were produced for writing on copy papers, they were fine pointed, stiff and shaped at a peaked angle to ensure the correct pressure was applied to the paper and transferred to the carbon coated paper below

Today the nibs can of course be used for this purpose, but are favoured by those enjoying a fine line. In this case the nib is akin to a modern Extra Fine (XF) 

 


Condition

The fountain pen is in very good condition.


Restoration

The pen has been taken apart, cleaned, polished and dip tested

All our pens come Grand Vision Guaranteed: guaranteed to write beautifully out of the box and to provide long lasting writing service.



Imperfections 

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

Discolouration has occurred to the gold trimfinish, (see photos) this is very common to these pens.

The pen has only light sings of wear, micro-scratches present, some marks to the rear of the barrel, but otherwise a very good example indeed.




Writing Style & Nib Appraisal

The nib has been tuned to ensure smooth writing experience.

The nib is a generous semi flex, line variation from a fine to a broad, good ink flow, smooth and responsive. 

Please take a look at the writing samples in the photos which give an indication of the quality of this nib 


Recommendations

Recommended for accounting, annotating, or simply for those who enjoy writing with an extra fine line. 

Why not pair with a bottle of Organics studio vintage series ink? An ink which is safe to use in vintage pens would be preferable in ensuring best performance and care for the instrument. Willow green make for a particularly nice pen / ink combination!
