    Imo there are a lot awesome vintage Waterman nibs out there.

    I own some vintage Waterman pens, out of these this tiny 12 1/2 has based on my preferences the „best“ nib (for me).

    I consider this a century old little pen as one of my all time favorite pens


    Another awesome vintage Waterman I own is this safety 45.

    So you will get very different answers what’s the best depending whom you will ask.
    I think I got the same safety pen. Same nib as this Broad italic. and the only difference is the body which has two gold bands.

    I'll every happy if that is the same nib. I cross my all fingers and my toys as well.

    I love your pen.

    Waterman NY stubs are really nice. You might call them italics, but i think Waterman called them stubs. They’re as nice as the best MB broads terms of line variation and give.

    I have a Waterman Exclusive with a broad 18k nib. Writes like a fire hose. It's not perhaps up there for flex lovers, but for me, it's a really, really enjoyable nib with a nice bounce to it.

    Also a Carene factory stub. Finally laid hands on one, after stupidly not buying the one I tried in Selfridges about ten years ago.

    Some beautiful pens, and even more beautiful writing.
    Shames me to have nibs good enough to do such writing and never even really trying. I do do a nice Capitol L.
