[SOLD]Waterman Taperite Crusader $75

[SOLD]Waterman Taperite Crusader

This is one of the later models of the Taperite with an open nib. I personally like this look better than a hooded nib. The pen is in very good condition with some wear showing on the cap with 2 small ding and a little wear to the gold finish. The nickel trim on the clip and lever are in excellent condition. Imprints are very good. Clip has excellent tension and cap tassie looks almost like new. The pen is a slip cap and the nickel plated clutch ring has excellent luster. The 14k nib is fairly large. Not sure of the number size they used on these, but this is probably similar to their #4 size. Writes from a F/M-BB with semiflex-full flex flexibility. Pen has no major damage besides a few light scratches. The gloss black is very nice on this pen. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm light grid print on HP 24lb laserjet paper. Measurements are: 13cm capped, 15.5cm posted, and 12cm unposted. More info on the Taperite can be found on the great Richard Binder's Site.
