    Default Four Wahl-Eversharp desk pens in a row

    My favorite is the blue and black pen and base on the left. The glass pelican base has a vintage Pelikan pen in its trumpet. I never seem to ink desk pens, though. There's no good reason why not.

    Those are more interesting than the mundane desk sets I have. Very nice.

    Ahem. That striking one on the left deserves a solo turn in front of the camera. Just sayin'.

    So here’s a question. I have a Wahl desk pen whose base trumpet is loose and won’t stand up with a pen in it. Is this fixable?

    Sure, but the socket will need gentle swaging in some fashion. Post the question in the repair forum.

    I fixed the droopy trumped on a Sheaffer Imperial desk set with a bit of hot glue.
