Waterman 14 P.S.F. – Medium / Good Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 14 S.F. – Medium / Good Flex (On Ebay)

The Waterman 14 P.S.F. (Pocket Self Filler) is the early version of a “54.” This is made of BCHR. The color has faded some to a dark brown. The chasing is worn but still visible. Imprints are a bit worn also, but still easily readable. The original clip is no longer present, but it does have a nice, clean accommodation clip. The nickel lever is in good shape with no brassing. The biggest flaw in the pen is that the 14kt. Waterman #4 has a crack at the base. It runs from the back of the nib up to the “IDEAL” imprint. The crack is not nearly as problematic as it would be if it were on the tines. The section holds the nib (and crack) tight and stable. The nib is a gorgeous writer. It is a soft and ultra smooth F (0.4mm). It also has some flex. This feed isn’t going to ever railroad and that also makes the range of flex higher going up to BB+ (1.6mm). Ease of flex is a bit on the stiff side, and so the “Medium/ Good Flex” grade.
