Waterman 14 PSF – Super Flex 

This is a very nice Waterman 14 PSF (the predecessor to the 54). The pen is still quite black with only slight fading. The chasing is a bit worn, but still pretty decent. Imprints are all pretty good. There are some very light bite marks at the end of the pen. There was no original clip on the pen and still does not have one, but the nickel plated lever is in good condition. The design of these pens are interesting because the threads are actually pertruding from the barrel rather than flush with it. The 14kt. #4 nib is a fantastic stub recently retipped by John Mottishaw. It is just a gorgeous, very juicy and ultra smooth stub. Flex on stubs are always difficult to judge because the nib starts with already so broad. 0.7mm-2.1mm is pretty good range and comes pretty easy for this nib, and thus the super flex grade. A very unique Waterman pen.
