Waterman 12 – Wet Noodle

Waterman 12 – Wet Noodle  (See Price Here)

Another Waterman 12 in BCHR with gold-filled trim. This 12 is in impressive condition. The BCHR is still very black with only a slight bit of fading. The chasing is also crisp with a lot of texture left, and imprints look almost brand new. There is some brassing on the edges of the gold-filled clip. The gold-filled repousse bands look to be in superb condition. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a very interesting one. It is a very soft, wet noodle. Normally, it writes as an ultra wet stubish Medium. I do not overstate the wetness. You will need good paper (Rhodia, Tomoe River, etc.) otherwise you’ll be getting a lot of bleed through. The flex is also very wet and comes with ease ranging from M (0.6mm) up to a huge BBBB (2.2mm). Overall, a lovely Waterman 12 in great condition with a Wet Noodle stub nib.
