Waterman 12 Eye Dropper – SUPER FLEX

Here is old Waterman 12 Eyedropper that looks like a vintage pen. The chasing on this pen is worn almost completely off. Imprints are worn but readable. It has faded to a dark brown color. It is also missing the clip from the cap. The nib does have a very small crack coming out of the air hole. I tried to pick it up in the picture, but it is quite small. I have graded the flex as “Super Flex” even though it doesn’t have the ability to make huge lines. Nevertheless, it is a XXF nib that flexes easily and with pretty decent responsiveness, so flexing looks nice. Detailed, small print flexing is also very good. I personally really like the way this XXF nib writes normally as well. This is a fun pen to play around with.
