Waterman 54 – SUPER FLEX (XXF Nib) (SOLD)

Waterman 54 – Super Flex (XXF Nib)  (On Ebay)

Here is a Waterman 54 in BCHR. The black hard rubber has faded a bit but is still fairly black. The chasing is worn. It’s visible but has lost much of its texture. The chasing on the barrel is better. The imprints are still quite good. The nickel plated trim is in decent condition. There is some very minor pitting on the clip and some wear as well, but I don’t see actual plate loss. The nib on this pen is one of the most sought after nibs: a XXF with flex. This 14kt. Waterman #4 is a 0.2mm (XXF) with some nice flex up to 1.7.mm. The flex is a pretty soft super flex, though not a wet noodle. It has good responsiveness and nice flow. It writes normally pretty smoothly for such a fine tip.
