Vintage Pens: 4354: Parker: Raven
Flexi nibs are pretty rare on Parker pens of the 1920s and '30s. Yet, this Parker Raven has a Christmas tree inkfeed and an almost wet noodle 14k gold Lucky Curve nib. It is very flexi, and it writes fine to about 1.25mm. We replaced the ink sac. The steel button is a little short and might take a couple pushes to fill completely. It has a clean, strong imprint, but there is some wear from use. There's a tiny bit of brassing on the edges of the cap bands and edges of the clip. Click the headline for close-ups. Slender and 12.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4353: Waterman: 0552 1/2
Heaven is a place on earth when you have this Waterman 0552 1/2 fountain pen on your desk. If you didn't know better, New York's old Waterman factory was up and producing pens today, when judging by this set of vintage writing instruments. No scratches nor dents on either instrument. The pen has a working ink sac. Its only flaw is a little chocolate hazing between the overlay and section on the barrel. The trefoil overlay is 18k gold filled. The matching pencil works, advancing lead from the nose cone. Under the tail end are spare leads. The pen's 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine to flexi line that measures nearly 1.5mm. Pen measures 13.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4342: Criterion: Oversized
Criterion pens are solidly build second or third tier vintage pens with a unique clip fastener. Not a lot to write home about...until you click the headline for a look at its nib! Some past repairman stuck an early #4 Sheaffer "Self-Filling" nib in this pen! Better yet, it is a rare flexi Sheaffer nib. Made of 14k gold, it writes a razor-extra-fine to 1mm wide line. It feels wet-noodle flexi on your thumbnail, but it is a little different on paper. The tip is so sharp it digs into the paper a little and you'll have to write fairly slowly to make the most of the nib. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. It looks great at a casual glance and in the photo, but in real life moderate wear is visible. 14.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4336: Conklin: 40
No sticker is needed to know this is a New Old Stock Conklin 40 crescent-filling pen. Its black hard rubber and chasing are impossibly crisp for being nearly 100 years old. It looks like it was made yesterday. No cracks, scratches or brassing! Absolutely perfect. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. You'll write a fine to 1.25mm wide line with its flex nib. Not a wet noodle, but it gets the job done nicely with a little feedback. Remember! You're the first person to break this pen in! So light weight, you can write with it all day. 13.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4264: Wahl-Eversharp: Doric Desk Pen
Hold on to your hat! Flexing with smooth, intense variations is the adjustable nib on our Wahl-Eversharp Doric desk pen. Aside from being a beautiful product of the art deco era, with its striped, faceted green body, this vintage pen is oh-so functional. We restored it with a new ink sac. Yet, we know it is the 14k gold marvel of an adjustable nib that you want to know more about. It is marked as a size 5 nib. Click the headline for a close up. The adjustor slides up and down to make the nib more or less flexible. It works well. How flexi? A smooth fine to nearly 2mm wide! Cosmetically, it is good, though the celluloid looks a little faded and there's a tiny chip missing from the top of the tail taper, which also has bite marks. You'll find the lever goes down 99% of the way but still sticks up just a little when closed. Nevertheless, this is an amazing writer and stunning pen. We just wish we had a matching desk base for it. 21cm long.

Vintage Pens: 4175: Conklin: 3NL
Alright you Spencarians and other flex writers! Behold the very flexi Conklin 3NL. It starts at a wet extra-fine and flexes up to 2mm! It is not a wet noodle, but what resistance is there will only help you stay a little slower and steadier. Did we mention that it is extremely smooth, too? We restored this incredible vintage pen with a new ink sac. No cracks, minimal scratching or any other blemishing. Crisp chasing. Its imprint is a little faded but legible. If it helps you date it, there is only an imprint on one side of the crescent filler. Its one helluva pen. 13.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4013: Waterman: 452
Hand-engraved sterling silver Waterman's fountain pens are true treasures, especially when paired with a FLEXI 14k gold nib that writes extra fine to about 1.25cm. Shading closer to semi-flex, this classic #2 nib isn't a wet noodle. Nevertheless, it is a smooth treat with which to write. We are selling this pen on behalf of the brilliant pen-repair tool designer Stuart Hawkinson, and he calls the engraving on the barrel and cap "floral vine." The sleeves of the cap and barrel are marked sterling and show no dents and minimal wear. There are no initials in the window left on the barrel. The pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. BUT WAIT, there's more! You get the matching pencil that still works, too! It comes loaded with a 1.1mm lead that entends but doesn't necessarily retract with the mechanism that does retract. Our favorite detail is that the pocket clips are also engraved! Pen measures 13.6cm capped.
