The Doric “Stenographer” pen is an interesting variant of the Wahl Eversharp Doric, long and slender, with eight facets, four wide and four narrow and a bulb filler. Presumably aimed at steographers – mainly women - who transcribed speech using shorthand. This pen is made of pearlescent green web celluloid, 14.2cm (5 ½ inches) closed and 16.4cm (almost 6 ½ inches) when the cap is closed.
The blind cap unscrews to reveal the rubber bulb, a simple and reliable to filler.
The long slender nib is a fine point with nice flex and line variation. An very pleasant pen to write with.
Condition: excellent, lovely colour, no brassing of the trim, just a couple of minor dings to the ring by the blind cap. Serviced, the pen fills well and writes smoothlyl with some nice flex and line variation.
