Waterman Starlet – Super Flex

Waterman Starlet – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a gorgeous made in USA Waterman Starlet in grey marble celluloid. I really enjoy this line from Waterman, which is rather underrated in my opinion. The celluloid is gorgeous and pictures cannot capture the depth of it. The Starlet is the junior version of the Stalwart. The body is in superb condition with no blemishes to report. The gold-filled trim is in excellent condition with just a tiny bit of brassing around the edges of the rivet holding in clip. The clip is firmly attached. The lever looks great and the imprints are perfect. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a lovely, wet writing F (0.4mm). It’s got a nice sweet spot. The nib also has some nice flex ranging from F to BB (1.8mm). The ease of flex is a slightly on the stiffer side of “super flex” but it has some nice responsiveness. A lovely pen from the 1940s by Waterman.
