Waterman Crusader – Fine Italic SOLD



Waterman Crusader – Fine Italic  SOLD

I personally really enjoy Waterman Taperite pens. They are, in my opinion, the underated counter to Parker 51s. Perhaps, partly because they are so difficult to restore without breaking. This fine pen was produced around 1948 and has a superb fine italic nib. Pretty crisp AND smooth. The gold cap does have a small ding in it. Otherwise, this pen is in superb condition. I love using this pen, so I’m pricing it kind of high. Plus, I think the nib really makes this pen. The italic is fine enough that you can use it for anything, and the slip cap makes it ultra convenient for joting whatever. I do not know the date of this pens production, but there is a 1923 patent date on the clip
