Waterman 54 –WET NOODLE  (See Price Here)

Here is a Waterman 54 in BCHR. The black hard rubber has faded some to a dark grayish brown. The chasing has a little wear, but is still pretty crisp. The imprints are all crisp. The nickel plated trim has some light wear but no plate loss. The nib on this pen is just incredible. It’s a factory fine italic with a bit of an oblique that writes smooth and wet from a “normal” writing angle. The flex on this pen is a very soft, paintbrush level flex that goes from 0.6mm to 2.3mm with ease. The italic grind on this nib makes flex work have that much more character and offers a tremendous amount of potential. This is a rare nib to find. Wet noodle 54s are not easy to discover, but a wet noodle italic! I’m kind of freaking out about it. If you love italics and you love flex, this may be your dream pen.  (See Price Here)
