Waterman 12 – Super Flex! (SOLD)


Waterman 12 Eye Dropper 

This pen is around a 100 years old and still looks amazing. There is no browning. Just a hint of fading. Still very black. The chasing is crisp. The imprints look new, and the “12” is still red. The Waterman #2 nib has some nice flex from a F (0.4mm) to BBB (1.8mm) on Rhodia. The nib has just a bit of a twist, which affects two things. It’s not quite as smooth writing normally as most #2’s, and it requires you to keep good form when flexing. If you roll your hand a lot, then it will start to railroad. And that is NOT because it is running dry. This is a very wet pen, and you’ll never have a problem with the ink flow not keeping up. Overall a great pen.
