Waterma 12 1/2 PSF – Super Flex (On Ebay)

This is a Waterman you do not see all that often. It is a 12 1/2 PSF. It is the predecessor to the 52 1/2. The “1/2” means thinner profile and the “PSF” means that it fills by lever. It is made of smooth black hard rubber (no original chasing). The body of the pen is still quite black, but the cap has browned a bit. The imprints are still crisp. The cap has some type of silver band. The band is not original. It appears that the lip of the cap was cracked and this band was installed to cover and stabilize it. The nickel plated lever is still in good condition with no plate loss. The 14kt. #2 Waterman nib writes as a very smooth XF (0.3mm) and flexes well up to 1.9mm. It is fairly responsive which is good because it really pours out the ink when flexed. It is a very good super flex nib.
