Waterman 13 – Super Flex

Waterman 13 – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is the more uncommon Waterman 13 eyedropper. It’s basically the same size as a twelve, but with a larger nib (a bit larger in width, and significantly larger in length). The BCHR has faded to a medium-dark brown. The chasing is still very visible though it has lost some of it’s texture. The original imprints are very crisp. The 14kt. Waterman #3 is really lovely. It writes normally as a super smooth and wet XF. It has a great soft, springy feel to it. The flex range is decent going up to BB (1.5mm), and ease of flex is pretty good. Flow is great, and responsiveness is about average: not out of this world, just decent. Overall, a very nice and relatively uncommon Waterman eyedropper.
