Waterman scored an incredible hit with its flagship Waterman Edson fountain pen. Bold and elegant, it captures both modernity and art deco design in a phenomenal writing experience. Our preowned ruby model is breathtaking and complete with its original boxes, papers and red converter. Yet, in the category of 'nobody's perfect,' it has only one flaw, a 1cm (5/16ths-inch) crack in the ruby barrel finish, starting where the section threads into the barrel. It is far too fine and difficult to photograph, but it is very much there. Click the headline for a close-up of the pen and nib. Its 18k gold nib lays down a very smooth, firm medium line. The box has the same problems of every single Edson box we know. The white part sticks to the pen, and the blue part is shedding a bit. 15.2cm capped.
