Waterman 12 (Near Mint) – Wet Noodle

Waterman 12 (Near Mint) – Wet Noodle  (See Price Here)

Here is a fabulous Waterman 12 in smooth black hard rubber with no original chasing. The hard rubber is still shiny black. The imprints as still very crisp and the paint is still mostly present. The gold filled band is also in great condition. What more can you say? It’s in amazing condition. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a very wet writing paintbrush wet noodle. This is incredibly soft and requires almost no pressure to flex. This long tined nib is produces a very soft, very wet, and very smooth writing experience. Thought the flex is as soft as it is, the responsiveness of this nib is still very good. The range is also very good going from XF (0.3mm) up to BB (1.6mm). Actually, the nib can go much further, but the one downside of this nib is that if you continually push it it will eventually start having some railroads. Generally, the feed picks right back up and you can start flexing again. Very dry inks (like IGs) might not fair very well in this one. Beautiful nib on a fantastic collection grade 12.
