Waterman Stalwart – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

This is a gorgeous silver celluloid Waterman Stalwart dating from the 1940s. The gold-filled trim on this pen are in very good condition with only some wear on the top of the clip. The section appears to have been shellacked to the barrel by a previous restorer. But filling system seemed in perfect order, so I left as is. The nib is soft, smooth and elegant to write with. The flex is good with line variation going from 0.5mm-1.6mm. There’s not much to say other than that this is a beautiful and very nice writing pen.

Parker Duofold Deluxe  – (On Ebay)

Here is one of the big Parker Duofolds. If you’ve never seen these, they are something to behold. The nib is absolutely massive. It is unfortunately missing two of the three gold bands around the cap. It has also has some of the typical discoloration between the cap and barrel. There is some brassing on the clip. The feed is the Christmas tree feed that followed the Lucky Curve. The nib is a very smooth and wet Medium. If you like big pens, here’s a chance to get one pretty reasonably.

Waterman 32V – Good Flex SOLD

IMG_3256

Waterma 32 – Good Flex – (On Ebay)

A nice small, pocket pen. The italic nib is quite nice and rather smooth. The line variation is not immense. Many would call this “semi-flex.” But what flex it has comes pretty easily and has a nice responsiveness. These pens are meant to be posted and feel like a normal size when they are. The black celluloid is pretty sturdy and in good condition with some light scratching from use. The clip is in very good condition. The lever has some wear as you can see. Also the bottom part of the lever had to be attached to the barrel with an adhesive. It will most likely hold for the life of the pen. So a nice, portable italic nib pen with some flex.

SIZE:  4 1/4″ Capped

NIB: Waterman #2, F Italic to BB (0.7mm-1.4mm) GOOD FLEX (See “Grading Flex Nibs” for How I Grade)

Waterman 52 – Good Flex SOLD

Waterma 52 – Good Flex – (On Ebay)

Now here is a pen that would make Indiana Jones proud. Very rustic. Hard rubber has browned some. It comes with an after market clip. Pen clips were not standard issue on these old pens, and many people would later buy a clip to attach. The lever has some wear, and it sticks out just a bit from the barrel. There are three small cracks around the bottom of the cap (see pics). The nib is gloriously smooth, even for a Waterman. The flex is pretty good, but it is very wet when flexing. It makes controlling the nib a bit harder (thus the “good flex” grade rather than “super flex”), but it also really brings out the shading of the ink. A very nice daily writer.

SIZE:  5 1/4″ Capped

NIB: Waterman #2, F to BB (0.4mm-1.8mm) GOOD FLEX (See “Grading Flex Nibs” for How I Grade)

FILLING: Lever

CONDITION: Fair
