Waterman Starlet – Good/Medium Flex

Waterman Starlet – Good/Medium Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a nice Waterman Starlet in grey marble celluloid. It’s in very good condition. The only real blemish that I see is a mark on the threads. At first I though it was a little piece of hardened shellac, but it appears to be a spot where the celluloid got too warm and melted a tiny bit. The pen still threads a quarter turn without issue, and it is quite small. The gold filled trim looks very nice with no signs of brassing. The 14kt. Waterman #2A is a lovely writing wet F (0.4mm). It has some flex. The range isn’t huge only going to 1.5mm and ease of flex is between my Medium and Good flex grade. It has decent responsiveness. These pens are much prettier in person.
