Waterman 3V – SUPER FLEX 

Here is a Waterman 3V in black with chrome trim. The pen is overall in good condition. There is some light scratching on the body throughout. Some deeper scratches on the back of barrel from posting the cap. There is a little bit of wear on the clip and lever, but they still both look pretty decent. Imprints are all crisp. The real star of this pen, though, is the 14kt. Waterman #2 nib. It is a superb flex nib nearing almost wet noodle quality. It is an XXF (0.2mm perhaps a little wider with a wetter ink) and flexes very softly up to 1.6mm. This nib would be easy to over flex, so it should be used with care. Still, it is very snappy and makes high quality flex easy to achieve. It just seems to respond to the slightest pressure changes. If you are looking for an artist quality nib, this maybe it.
