Waterman 13 – Wet Noodle (SOLD)


Waterman 13 Eye Dropper – Wet Noodle (See Price Here)

Here is a Waterman 13 (sorry the pic is wrong) with an outstanding wet noodle nib. It is made of smooth black hard rubber (no original chasing) which has greyed and faded a bit though it is till blackish. Imprints are still very good. An accommodation cap was installed at some point and moved much later leaving a blacker outline on the cap where the clip used to be. There also appeared to be some kind of band on the barrel (not an original band though) that was removed and left a blacker outline from where it used to be. The clip still functions but has rusted a bit. The real star of this pen though is the nib. It is a great, almost dip nib like wet noodle. It is extremely fine and flexes up to 2.3mm very easily. It would make a great Copperplate nib. (See Price Here)
