Waterman 94 Mahogany (Keyhole Nib) – Medium Flex

Waterman 94 Mahogany (Keyhole Nib) – Medium Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is a Waterman 94 in the gorgeous Mahogany body. Pictures never fully do justice to this color. This looks and feels posh. The body has normal light marks from use, but nothing big and most I could polish out. The gold-filled trim is in good condition overall. There is some tiny spots of grassing on the edges of the lever and clip. Imprints look good. The black hard rubber section has faded to a dark brown. This pen comes with a 14kt. Waterman #4 “Keyhole” nib. The nib writes wonderfully as a wet and beautifully smooth F/M. It really feels like a stubbish Medium. It really brings on the shading. While normal writing is where this nib really shines, it does have some flex ranging up to BB (1.5mm). While flex comes rather easily, it lacks some of the range and responsiveness of better flex nibs. That doesn’t mean this is a lesser nib, because it excels at normal writing. But I would only grade it as a “medium flex.” If you are looking for a great writing vintage pen with some flex, you can’t go wrong with this beauty.
