Waterman 12 – Wet Noodle (SOLD)

Waterman 12 – Wet Noodle  (See Price Here)

Here is the classic Waterman 12 in chased hard rubber. The black body has faded some to a dark brown. The chasing is visible with texture but is a bit worn. The imprints still look almost new. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a rather oblique (left tine tipping is longer than the right). This makes for an italic like quality to your writing, but it’s also got some feedback. Tipping is a bit low, but it has enough to last plenty more years. The flex on this nib is quite good ranging from F (0.4mm) to BBB (1.8mm). Ease of flex I would grade as on the lower end of a wet noodle. I wouldn’t recommend this one to the newbie as the oblique nib takes some getting used to, but it can deliver some rewarding results.
