Waterman Junior


I’m always pleased when there’s a Waterman Junior coming my way. They’re superb pens, often in glowing colours like this iridescent green marble, and they have very, very nice nibs. I can’t find it in Max Davis’s Waterman book but looking at the very neat chrome-plated lever box, I’d guess that it was made in the late 1930s.


Invariably, in my experience, these pens have superflex nibs. A glance at the nib would give you no clue to the decorative line that resides in there. It just looks like another ho-hum Ideal nib. But it’s not…


Forgive the hasty and somewhat blotted writing. I closed the page before the ink was dry, but you get the idea.
