About This Model
From the early 1920s until well into the 1930s Wahl produced small metal ringtop pens, aimed largely at women, in both silver and gold-plated overlays. These were often highly ornate, with small (usually size 2) gold nibs that wrote flexible lines for calligraphic script. Generally speaking, these pens have held up well over time, are usually straightforward restorations. The pencils, which were usually expel only, work well and without the corrosion of ink, generally hold up well.
About This Pen
This Wahl is from 1925-26, probably one of its $3.50 pens (Wahl advertised by price, far from the first firm to do so.), standard size, of black hard rubber and a full flexible writer. This pen embodies Wahl’s distinctive features of the day: roller clip, gold trim, rounded and humped lever, and a decorative pattern imprinted into the hard rubber, in this case the Wave pattern. The nib is a 14K 2, with the Wahl signature engraved in it. It writes a wet broad, flexing to BB, a wonderful pen to write with.
