Waterman Starlet – Good Flex – (On Ebay)

Here a nice looking Waterman Starlet in grey pearl celluloid. The body of the pen is in pretty good condition. The barrel has darkened some. The cap looks about like the original color. There is some light scratching throughout. A few spots where the scratches are a little deeper, but nothing that really stands out significantly. The chrome plated trim is in pretty decent condition. The  lever looks quite good. The clip has a little wear, but nothing major. The rivet that holds the clip has only a little plate loss. The clip is pulled out just a bit from the cap, but it still grips pretty well. The 14kt. Waterman 2A nib is a very smooth writing XF (0.3mm). It is quite wet, soft and springy. A pleasure to use. It has good flex going up to 1.6mm.
