14k Gold Watermans IDEAL '2' - Semi Flex Nib - MEDIUM

Lever Filled Fountain Pen: serviced and ready to write

 

Condition:

The fountain pen is in overall very good condition. Wonderfully, the pen comes in its original box with instructions. Its barrel bears the imprint: 'Waterman's IDEAL Fountain Pen Made in Canada'. It is rare for these pens to bear their clips, this one is thankfully intact. 

 

Servicing:

It has been conservatively restored and cleaned, a new inc sac has been fitted and the nib has been tuned and checked (see writing samples) 

 

Imperfections:

There are no major imperfections to note, no chips cracks etc. There is discolouration to the hard rubber as is common amongst vintage pens of nearly 100 years! But overall the pen is in very good condition 

 

Writing Style

The 14k Gold Nib has been tuned and writes beautifully with a gorgeous semi-flex nib offering good line variation and a smooth experience. (See writing samples)
