Waterman Ink Vue with Music Nib – Wet Noodle (SOLD)


Waterman Emerald Ray Ink Vue with Music Nib – Wet Noodle 

Here is a very special pen. It’s a fantastic Waterman Emerald Ray Ink Vue Pen with a New Old Stock Waterman Music Nib. The pen itself is in very good condition. It has great color. Very little scratching. Imprints are good, and just look at that barrel clarity! There is one spot of brassing on the edge of the clip. Actually, more of a nick than brassing. Also the very thin gold filled band on the top of the cap is partially missing (see pic), and the identical band on the bottom of the barrel is loose. Otherwise, the trim is in great condition.  And then, of course, there is the nib. This nib by itself is worth several hundred. It’s in mint, never before used condition. It writes as a wet 0.9mm italic (that’s line width and not nib width). It has nice line variation. It’s more cursive italic than stub, I would say. Certainly not a crisp italic, though. It just glides across the page. It has a huge flex going up to BBBB (3.1mm). This pen uses a lot of ink very fast, so it really takes a good, lubby ink to take advantage of the full flex potential of this pen. I’ll send along a sample of such ink so you can hit the ground running. This may be your grail pen. See Price Here.
