[SOLD]Waterman Taperite Crusader $55
[SOLD]Waterman Taperite Crusader
This is a great pen at a great steal price because of a bent but fully functional nib. The nib bends to the right slightly, but has superb flex and line variation. This open nib version of the Taperite usually has some degree of flex compared to the half hooded Taperites. This one is full flex and lays down a XF to BBB line providing nice thin lines and big swells when wanted. Nib offers superb control that is fairly smooth for a finer width nib. The bend has not adversely affected the writing experience. Cap is a slip cap. The trim is in great shape. The lever functions perfectly. There are some light flea bites on the butt end. Imprints are deep and legible. A great deal for someone that does not care about cosmetic issues, and are after a good deal for a user pen. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 11m capped, 14cm posted, and 10.3cm unposted.
Asking price is $55 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.
