Waterman 52 1/2 BCHR – Wet Noodle

Waterman 52 1/2 BCHR – Wet Noodle (See Price Here)

Here is a fabulous wet noodle nib offered in a Waterman 52 1/2. The pen is good over all condition. The BCHR is still rather black. A little brown but very, very dark. The chasing has been worn almost completely smooth however, and the imprints on the side of the barrel are mostly unreadable. The nickels trim is in great condition without any brassing. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a near paintbrush soft wet noodle. It writes normally as a borderline XXF (0.25mm). It’s quite wet for such a fine nib, but the softness of the tines make this nib difficult to use for normal writing as they start spreading on contact with the paper. The flow keeps up well. Responsiveness is quite good for such a soft nib. Probably, not for beginners. Over flexing this isn’t that hard due to it’s softness. An incredible Watermen noodle.
