Waterma 54 Stub- Semi/ Medium Flex (On Ebay)

This pen is lovely to behold. It does have some browning, but it is uniform and not very drastic. It actually looks like a deep, chocolate brown pen. It is smooth with no original chasing. The imprints are very crisp. There is a little brassing on the edges of the gold band on the cap, but the clip and lever are great condition. They look silky, golden smooth. The only let down on this pen is that the iridium was missing when I received it. I have ground it to a 0.9mm italic stub that writes wet and buttery smooth with pretty decent line variation. It does have some flex as well. It falls right in between what I would consider “semi” and “medium” flex.
