Size: Capped - 5 3/4 inches; posted - 5 7/8 inches.
A beautiful jet black lacquered Carene. This pen is used, but in excellent condition. There is not damage to this pen at all - the lacquering is beautifully glossy and scratch=-free and the gold plated trim bright and shiny. This is a very substantial pen with a good heft. The cap tapers to quite a point, and has a pierced and spring-loaded gold plated Waterman pocket clip, and a cap lip band. The barrel has a gold plated end piece with a flat black disc inset into the slanted bottom. The barrel unscrews to allow the pen to be filled. You can use the fitted ink converter to fill from a bottle, or if you prefer you can use standard Waterman ink cartridges. The section is black and the unique shaped inlaid nib is made from 18 carat gold. It is in a medium point.
I have fully serviced this pen. It fills easily. The nib writes with a very smooth action with a good consistent medium width line.
