Waterman Stalwart – Good Flex – (On Ebay)

I believe this is a made in the USA Waterman Stalwart (as opposed to a Starlet which I wrote in the photo. Oops.) in a lovely brown pearl celluloid. The pen is in pretty good condition. There is only light scratching on the body which you pretty much cannot see. These 40s Waterman pens are always underrated in my opinion. The celluloid patterns are beautiful, and the nibs are always superb. The chrome trim has some scratching but no plate loss. The clip is bent slightly out (see pic), but top rivet is tight. The 14kt. Waterman nib is an ultra smooth pillowy nib. Just a fantastic writer. The flex is decent. Pretty snappy and wet, but too stiff for a super flex. Many would call this a semi-flex. Still a little pressure gives you a good swell. And did I mention its an awesome writer.
