Ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, and section. Hand cleaned the inside of the barrel and cap. Cleaned, Buffed, and Polished the outside of the cap and barrel to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the hard rubber. Replaced the old rubber sac with a new, Silicone sac. Hand polished the Gold Filled Clip, Cap Banding, and Lever Box assembly along with the Flexible Signature Wahl Eversharp NIB. The lever displays no wear. The Wahl Eversharp Clip and 2-Ring Cap Banding have been polished and display no wear with bright clean trim. This Wahl Eversharp Gold Seal Fountain Pen measures 4 3/4" in length capped and 6 1/8" posted.
The threads on the cap and barrel are excellent with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. This fountain pen is made of hard rubber in the pattern known as Rosewood. The coloring displays consistent and vibrant red and black coloring. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or the barrel. There are no cracks, nicks or repairs to the hard rubber. The cap has an imprint at the top that reads, "MADE IN U.S.A ". The top of the cap has the Double Check Mark Gold Seal.
The lever and box assembly have been cleaned and oiled. In my tests with water, the filling system works flawlessly.
This is the fun part - this Wahl Eversharp has a 14K Signature Nib that has great flexibility all while writing smoothly. When measuring the actual tip of the 14K NIB, it measures with a medium point of .76mm with digital calipers. When writing the sample in the listing images, the NIB writes with a medium line measuring roughly .61mm with very light pressure on the horizontal strokes and flexes up to a triple broad of 2.13mm with medium to firm pressure; I didn't want to overextend the NIB's capabilities. The Nib is a pleasure to write with and does so smoothly. The writing sample provided was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Blue-Black Ink.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.
I would have to express this Wahl Eversharp Rosewood color is spectacular and very vibrant. This fountain pen is in ready to write condition. I would consider the condition of this fountain in Excellent+ to Near Mint condition. Certainly, a collector grade writing instrument to add to one's writing arsenal collection.
