FPOTD: Wahl-Monitor Vintage Pen


IMG_0440

My fountain pen of the day is a pretty interesting one. A friend of mine gave this to me out of three celluloid vintage pens that she bought. It’s a pretty rough-looking Wahl-Monitor (a sub-brand of Wahl) with a stub fine nib. Filling mechanism is still good, but I’m not very used to using stub nibs. I miss the iridium tipping. In any case, it is an interesting pen to write with.

I love the style of the cap and clip. Very period-looking. The pen’s really rough, like it’s been through the Vietnam war and back, but it’s fascinating how it still works perfectly.
