Parker Lucky Curve Jack Knife 20 1/2  – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a Parker Lucky Curve Jack Knife #20 1/2 in black hard rubber. The hard rubber has faded a bit to a dark, grayish brownish black color. The imprints are all readable, but the ones on the cap and the number on the blind cap are worn and you have to look closely. The clip looks pretty good. A little bit of wear showing but no brassing. The 14kt. Parker Lucky Curve #2 is a medium wet F. It writes smooth, not glassy smooth, but not scratchy at all. The flex on this nib is very nice. It comes easy. Has great range going from F (0.4mm) to BBB (1.8mm). It has good responsiveness as well. A great vintage Lucky Curve.

Waterman 12 – Super Flex

Waterman 12 – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is a great Waterman 12 in really nice condition. The black hard rubber has faded some to a very dark brown. The chasing, however, shows little wear and is quite crisp is the imprint. The number on the end of the barrel still has the original red paint. The gold filled trim also looks nice. The clip does have a little bit of wear and scuffing around some of the imprints. The band looks great. It has the initials “L.S.” is a lovely script. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a very wet writing F/ M (0.5mm). It writes smooth and has a slightly stubbish feel to it. It’s wetness really does make if feel like a Medium. The flex on this nib ranges up to BBB (1.8mm). The flow is very wet and has no problem keeping up with the nib. Due to it’s wetness and wide nib, it has average responsiveness. But this is a great Waterman 12 vintage eyedropper is fantastic condition for a 100 plus year pen.
