Modern Wahl-Eversharp Decoband fountain pen from the Decoband Gold Seal Oversized Collection. This is a now discontinued Lapis Blue acrylic version with a pneumatic filling system. It has a red colored feed and the modern Wahl Eversharp "Superflex" 14k nib which we consider a relatively flexible fine. Most of the original packaging is present, including two different pen sleeves, a rubber grip for the pneumatic knob, full bottle of Everberry ink, large box, and paperwork. Superior condition.

Description

Details

Type  Modern version of a fountain pen classic.

Product Name  Decoband Gold Seal Oversized. It is Model 2.4FP according to the paperwork in the box.

Manufacturer and Year  Wahl-Eversharp (modern re-incarnation of company) -- 2015-2018, we're not quite sure when this material was discontinued but it isn't a current color.

Length  5-7/8 inches.

Filling System  Pneumatic filling system. Much like the pneumatic system used by Edison and the touchdown system used by Sheaffer, you unscrew the knob at the end of the barrel and pull out the tube before putting the pen in ink. Then push the knob in and re-tighten it. The pen boasts that it holds 2ml of ink at a time and this pen has been restored/serviced in house. It has been tested and is working well. The pneumatic knob is difficult to grab because it is not large, so turn it slowly until you see the threads (about 1/4 inch of the metal tube will show) and do not pull until you see the metal threads. 

Color  This is the Lapis Blue acrylic version. It is a marbled mix of blues with gold plated trim. The trim includes a jeweler's band of stacked coins beneath the section and a Greek key patterned band near the cap lip. The metal tube of the pneumatic filler is plain with the quote, "We are writing history." The section and end pieces are black.

Nib  FINE FLEXIBLE Wahl-Eversharp "Superflex" 14k nib. It is smooth with large tipping material and nice spring for good line variation. It is very good flex for a modern nib. See the writing sample below. The feed is painted red and has a few pieces missing.

Condition  Superior condition. The pen has some handwear and a few places where the painted feed shows wear. The plating is great and the imprints are clear.  Most of the original packaging is present.

This pen ships with lots of accouterments. The original packaging includes a "Neva Fade" anti-oxidant pen storage sleeve, a cloth pen sleeve, piece of rubber to use as a grip for the pneumatic knob, paperwork including the model name, filling instructions, and a brief history of Wahl-Eversharp. An unused bottle of Wahl-Eversharp Everberry ink in vintage-style bottle is also included. Everberry is a light slightly purple royal blue. All of this is in a large black box. This box originally comes in a paper outer box, but we do not have that outer box.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
