Hi all!

 

I got lucky last week while up in the Pacific Northwest; I found this pen! A factory Wahl all metal #5 Demonstrator! 

 

Oh yes, and the nib is super flexible!

Thanks Greg  

 

That demonstrator example is something I have not seen before, a great find for sure!  

 

I have the exact same No.5 nib on a Wahl Tempoint and like you say - super flexible

Thanks Innes! Yes, it is rare, and the first one seen! 

 

The nib is amazing as you know too!

Eversharp seems to have preferred that lens shape for their demonstrator cutouts.

That is a great example on a pencil! So the legends are true, the "lens" approach is what they did for a demonstrator pen, really neat!

I will be bringing my pen to the D.C. Show to share, and sell!
