Waterman 14 – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 14 – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

This is a Waterman 14 eyedropper in BCHR. The hard rubber has faded to a dark brown. The chasing has also worn. It is visible but has lost most of its texture. The imprints are also worn, but it is most readable. You do have to look close to read them, though. The “14” on the back is nice and crisp. The nickel clip is in good shape. There is a little bit of wear but no brassing. The 14kt. Waterman #4 is a superb nib. It is a slightly oblique F (0.5mm) that is a bit stubbish. It writes a bit on the wet side, but it’s not a gusher. It’s also a little stubbish. The flex on the pen is beautiful. It has a great range going up to 1.8mm (BBB). It also has some excellent responsiveness, and that combined with the oblique, stubbish nib allows for some for crisp flex writing. Overall, an excellent Waterman 14 with fantastic writing abilities.
