IMG_3555

Waterman 52 – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

This is a Waterman 52 in fair condition with a fantastic nib. The body of the pen is brown from fading. Chasing is present, but worn. Imprints are pretty good. The nickel lever is good condition with little wear. There are some scratches here and there on the pen. The cap is missing the clip. The cap also has two cracks at the bottom (see pics). But the nib! It is a fantastic fine italic nib (0.5mm) that flexes up to 1.7mm. The ease and responsiveness of this nib are nearing noodle status. Oh, and it makes a great daily writer. These fine italics are narrow enough to use in everyday writing, but definitely give some flair to normal handwriting. And this one is very smooth even though crisp enough to do some italic writing.
