[SOLD]Waterman 3 Steel Quartz Wet Noodle $200
[SOLD]Waterman 3 Steel Quartz Wet Noodle
This beautiful Waterman 3 in the Steel Quartz finish sports a beautifully writing wet noodle nib. The imprints are superb. Trim is fair-good on the pen overall. The cap band has 1/3 with trim wear. The clip and lever shows hints of wear, but overall is good. Threads are excellent. No cracks, chips, or bite marks on the pen. The cap does have a small area that is crystallized which is pretty common for old celluloid pens especially with non solid colors. The nib is the beauty of this pen. As mentioned it is a wet noodle offering monstrous line variation, with good snapback/responsiveness. It writes from a Fine to BBBB easily, and will shade when using a proper ink. Quite a gem considering the overall package the nib is in. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 12.8cm capped, 15.9cm posted, and 12.2cm unposted.
Asking price is $200 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.
