18k Gold Waterman's Nib - (Semi-Flex / Full Flex)
Lever Filled Fountain Pen - Serviced
The fountain pen is in overall very good condition.
The pen has been cleaned and serviced, a new inc sac has been fitted and the nib tuned. It now writes a beautiful wet line with flex from fine to broad. (See writing samples)
At some stage in the pens life an exact replacement nib has been fitted, (Waterman IDEAL England No.2). The nib is consistent with the pen, it is just an English version.
Signs of use and age to be anticipated with an antique pen, scratches and some very slight discolouration to the hardenned rubber and brassing to the lever bar. But these are minimal, for a pen of its age it is in remarkably good condition
The legendary Waterman's IDEAL nibs offer an unparalleled flexible writing experience. Please see our writing samples. Although the writing samples state full flex wet noodle, without getting carried away the pen writes between a semi flex and a full flex!
