Waterman 92 – Wet Noodle (See Price Here)
Here is a stunning Waterman 92 in red and bronze celluloid. The pen is in great condition with beautiful color and minimal signs of use. The imprints are all pretty good and crisp except there is some wear on the imprint on the side of the barrel. Part of the “Made in Canada” is very faint. The gold-filled trim is also in great condition with only a tiny bit of plate loss on the head of the lever. The clip and band look very nice. The real stunner of this pen, though, is that nib. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a nib of any artists or calligraphers dream. It’s an XXF wet noodle with paintbrush ease of flex unbelievably combined with a superb, bouncy responsiveness. This is about as close to a dip nib as you can get in a fountain pen. The XXF doesn’t make it great for normal writing. It’s too fine and soft, too easy to make the tines start spreading with slight pressure. But the flex!! This isn’t for the big gushing brush calligraphy lettering, but rather for the detailed, precise lettering of something like Copperplate. An incredible wet noodle that likely won’t last long.
