Waterma 12 1/2 Eyedropper – Super Flex (On Ebay)

This neat little pen is in superb condition. The cap is shiny black with no signs of wear to the chasing. The barrel does have a bit of browning and little wear to the chasing. Imprint on the side is crisp. The “12 1/2” a little less so, but still easily readable. There are a few typical teeth marks on the section from where previous owners unscrewed the pen with their teeth. The clip has very little plating, though it does look like it was originally put on slightly crooked. But all in all, this does NOT look like a hundred year old pen. I will say that this pen is not for the big handed. It has quite a thin profile, and if skinny pens bother you this probably isn’t your thing. The nib has good flex ranging from XF (0.3mm) to BB (1.6mm) and with pretty good responsiveness. If you don’t have a 12 1/2 in your collection, this will make a nice piece. Or if you just want a nice, smallish flex pen, this is perfect for you as well.
