Waterman 52V Red Ripple – SUPER FLEX SOLD

IMG_3065

Waterman 52V – SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

I don’t think I can say enough to communicate how nice this pen is. It’s a Canadian made Waterman 52V. The red rippled hard rubber is only slightly faded, though the section of the pen looks brand new. Imprint the side and back show slight wear, just a bit of braising on the top edge of the gold band, and a few tiny nicks on the lever. The name “E. Broomer” is also imprinted in the side (though you can hardly see the imprints in these rippled pens). But the nib is where this pen really shines. A super smooth XF that has Super Flex capabilities. I don’t know how to describe the flex on this nib other than to say it’s just smooth. It feels great to write with. I challenge any pen lover not to smile while writing with this pen. I know I sound like a salesman, but I love this pen.

Waterman 52 1/2 V – Gold Filled & Med Flex SOLD

IMG_2937

Waterman 52 1/2 Gold Filled Ring Top (On Ebay)

A great little ring top that is in near mint condition.  You can see some small scratches and such from wear near the end of the barrell, but other than that you really have to search for an imperfection. “L.L.” is engraved in nice script on the side. The nib is smooth and very fine. It does run a bit on the dry side, so I would recommend a wet ink for it. The flex I would say is more Medium than Good. It flexes fairly easiy intially, but you have to put some decent pressure to get it’s full range. Still easier than a Noodlers pen (at least mine anyway). The pen is beautiful as you can see and durable and ultra portable. Perfect pocket pen. And with flex, so very cool.

Eversharp Skyline Combo SOLD

IMG_2972

Eversharp Skyline Demi with Pencil  (On Ebay)

A brown Eversharp Skyline Pen & Pencel combo. Another great Eversharp 14kt. nib that writes super smooth. The Skyline’s tapered design feels nice in the hand, even with these smaller demis. The nib is more a medium than a fine as I had indicated in the picture. The top of the cap had shrunk and was no longer able to screw in, so it had to be glued. It works great, but you won’t be able to unscrew it. There is some brassing on the lever. Other than that it is good condition. I really know nothing about mechanical pencils, so I do not know if it works or not.

SIZE:  4 7/8″ Capped

NIB: Eversharp 14kt. Medium

FILLING: Lever

CONDITION: Good

Restration Work:

  • Pen (barrel, section, nib, feed, & cap) thoroughly cleaned & flushed
  • Nib polished. It already wrote fantastic.
  • Hand polished body of pen and gold trim. Fixed broken barrel.
  • New Sac
  • Test driven for a week to insure quality

Eversharp Skyline – Standard SOLD

IMG_2971 

Eversharp Skyline  (On Ebay)

Beautiful Skyline with Gold Filled cap. These Eversharp nibs are so smooth. Absolutely glorious fine, wet writing experience. Why don’t they make nibs like this anymore? Unfortunately, Eversharp’s plastic was not as good, and the barrell had a piece broken off near the section. I attached it all together and it works as normal. Even after significant amounts of micro mesh sanding, some crack filler, and of course buffing and polishing, you can still see the line if you look for it (See pictures). Some brassing on lever. Still a great pen.

SIZE:  5″ Capped

NIB: Eversharp 14kt. Fine

FILLING: Lever

CONDITION: Good

Restration Work:

  • Pen (barrel, section, nib, feed, & cap) thoroughly cleaned & flushed
  • Nib polished. It already wrote fantastic.
  • Hand polished body of pen and gold trim. Fixed broken barrel.
  • New Sac
  • Test driven for a week to insure quality

Parker Duofold – Ground Italic SOLD

IMG_2983

Parker Duofold – Ground Italic  (On Ebay)

Parker Duofold (Made in USA) though it looks similar to the UK models. It’s a Parker, so a nice durable pen. The iridium was broken off one of the tines when I got it, so I ground it to a 0.9mm italic. Thus, no iriditum on the nib. Pretty decent line variation, smooth as butter, and super wet. The gold filled trim shows no signs of brassing. The black body has light scratchy on it from use. Decent but not outstanding condition.

SIZE:  4 7/8″ Capped

NIB: Duofold 14kt. Nib, Self-ground to italic

FILLING: Button Filler

CONDITION: Good

Restration Work:

  • Pen (barrel, section, nib, feed, & cap) thoroughly cleaned & flushed
  • Nib polished. It already wrote fantastic.
  • Hand polished body of pen and gold trim
  • New Sac
  • Test driven for a week to insure quality
