Waterman Emblem – Good Flex

Waterman Emblem (XXF nib) (On Ebay)

This Waterman Emblem comes in black celluloid with gold filled trim. It is in the standard size. The Emblem was a high end pen of the 40s. The body and cap have some light scratching, most of which I was able to buff out, but it does not have any deep scratches. The pen has a slip cap rather than a threaded one, and it goes on well and stays firm. The large band on the cap is a bit loose but only moves if you are trying to push it up. The trim has little to no brassing. The large 14kt. Waterman Emblem is a superb XXF (0.2mm). It writes smoothly and beautifully. The pen does have some decent flex going up to 1.4mm. With such a fine nib, it takes very little flew to achieve significant line variation. However, the nib is stiff enough that I have graded it “good flex.”
