Waterman 94 – Wet Noodle (SOLD)

Waterman 94  -Wet Noodle (SEE PRICE HERE)

This Waterman 94 comes in Watermans “Steel Quartz” celluloid, a dark celluloid with chips of silver pearl and flecks of red. The body has only very light surface scratching, and I’ve buffed much of it out. The trim is chrome and is in pretty good shape. The clip and cap band have some surface scratching, but the lever is pretty clean. Imprints are crisp and easy to read. The 14kt. Waterman keyhole nib is astonishing. The flex is ultra soft while also fantastically responsive. It’s a nib that comes very close to rivaling the fantastically flexible Waterman PINK nib. Full disclosure: this nib did have a small chip out of the side edge back across the breather hole. I asked Greg Minuskin to weld in a donor chip of gold, and as usual he did a fantastic job. From the top side you would never spot it. As with all Greg’s welds, the expectation is that these will easily hold for the life of the pen. This is especially true for an unstressed spot like this particular spot. The range of flex on this is very good going from XF to BB (1.5mm). The flex is effortless and the nib responds to the slightest movements of your hand. Normally, this writes as a wet XF that is very soft. It has a pleasant sweat spot, but because of the softness of the nib it does require a soft touch to write normally.
