Vintage Pens: Wahl-Eversharp Personal Point Set
Vintage Pens: 3697 Wahl-Eversharp Personal Point Set
Before Pelikan. Before Esterbrook. Wahl-Eversharp created the first set of interchangeable nibs for a single pen. The Wahl-Eversharp Personal Point pen offered at least 14 different nib sizes. Unlike Esterbrook, these screw-in nibs were only intended for dealers to change so that they didn't have to carry dozens of different model pens with each of the different nib sizes at the height of the Great Depression. Imagine how a 1930s' Wahl-Eversharp executive's head would explode in our era of custom pen rediscovery. Our vintage pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. It comes with a "Manifold" 14k gold nib, which means it is firm to write through carbon paper. It writes a wet. medium-broad line with a hint of feedback. The pencil advances and retracts 1.1mm lead smoothly. Minimal wear, no cracks. Incredible pearl & black color with only minimal discoloration. Pen measures 13.3cm capped.
