You can write if you want to, if you don't no body will. But if your friends don't write, then somethin' ain't right, and they're no friends of mine. It's the safety pen. It's the safety pen. I bet the '80s group Men Without Hats never thought they'd inspire a vintage Waterman parody. It's weirdest intro we could do for this grail pen: the Waterman 45 Safety Filler! We were excited to get our hands on this vintage pen classic. Its hard rubber has only mild signs of chocolate hazing, and its insides are cleaned and moving smoothly. We are reasonably certain this pen is not water-tight, but it is an excellent example of this truly rare pen and worthy of a museum. Its cap has a silver clip and excellent chasing. The barrel still shows light chasing and imprints that are legible, but the chasing is not nearly as deep as it is on the cap. Its 14k gold nib is not marked 5 but it looks like a 5. You will write a smooth semi-flex line with it from extra-fine to just about 1mm. 13.4cm capped.
