Waterman 5 – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is a black celluloid Waterman 5 in black celluloid with chrome plated trim. Overall, the pen is in good condition but does have some blemishes. There are some light scratches throughout the pen, but I have buffed and polished out a good bit of it. Imprints all look very good. There is some plate wear on the clip. It just looks scratched a bit. And the lever has a little plate loss.  The band is in good shape. The large 14kt. Waterman #5 nib is a very smooth fine that is not overly wet. It has a good flex range from 0.4mm to 1.8mm (F – BBB). I have graded the nib as a super flex, though I would say this is a lower end super flex nib. Still it has good responsiveness and is pretty easy to do some nice flex writing with.
