Wahl “Signature” Rosewood – Wet Noodle (SOLD)

Waterman “Signature” Rosewood  – Wet Noodle (SEE PRICE HERE)

This is I believe the Wahl “Signature” pen which followed the Tempoint but preceded the gold seal and personal point models. This one comes in what Wahl called “Rosewood” hard rubber, very similar to Waterman’s wood grain hard rubber but generally a bit redder. The hard rubber has faded a little and lost it’s original sheen, but the color is still very good. The gold-filled roller clip is in very good condition with no brassing. The cap bands are also in good shape with just one tiny spot of brassing on one of the lower bands. The lever, however, does have some brassing along the edges. The 14kt. Wahl #2 is a beautifully soft wet noodle. What I would call near paint brush soft. Normally, the nib writes as a very wet XF. The tines require almost no pressure to start spreading, so it doesn’t provide a super smooth writing experience. Responsiveness is very good considering the nib’s softness and the range is excellent going from XF (0.3mm) to BB (1.5mm) with ease.
