[SOLD]Waterman 5 Keyhole Flex Nib $180
[SOLD]Waterman 5 Keyhole Flex Nib
An excellent condition specimen of a rare Waterman 5 with a Keyhole nib. It has wonderful flex, and is a smooth writer. Imprints are good, and actually look better than the pictures. No cracks, chips, or bite marks. Threads are excellent. Nib is original 14k Waterman's Ideal Keyhole nib. The shoulders on the nib has "FDW" & "14 585" denoting the gold content. Nib is Full Flex allowing beautiful line variation with great responsiveness. Writes from a Fine to BBB. Clip has excellent tension. The chrome trim has just a hint of wear, and the pics don't do it justice. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 13cm capped, 16.3cm posted, and 12cm unposted.
Asking price is $180 shipped within CONUS via Priority with tracking/insurance. USA buyers preferred. International buyers please PM or Email for shipping rates. I am not responsible for any duty fees incurred since I have no control over customs.
