[SOLD]Waterman 52 1/2 BCHR Wet Noodle $190
[SOLD]Waterman 52 1/2 BCHR Wet Noodle
These wet noodles are getting harder and harder to come by. The softness of the nib and the huge line variation is highly desired and sought after. When I do get one they are usually sold within minutes. I've even had to build a "want list" and reserve these for folks that want one. This one has a super soft Candian Waterman's Ideal 14k gold nib. The pen is a 52 1/2 in BCHR. The chasing on the body is worn with just a hint of it left that can be seen under a light. Color is also slightly faded, but looks black unless under bright lights. Imprints are fair, and can be made out under good lighting. Imprints are N.Y. imprints so the nib is a replacement for this pen. Chasing on the cap is very detailed unlike the body. Threads are excellent. Lever has trim wear, but functions flawlessly. The line variation on this pen goes from XF/F to BBB+ with ease. If the details were better the pricing would definitely be higher. Aside from the cosmetic imperfections the pen is a great performer. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm light grid print on HP 24lb laserjet paper. Measurements for the pen are: 13.5cm capped, 16.5cm posted, and 12.7cm unposted.
Asking price is $190 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.
