Waterman 52 1/2V Cardinal Red – Good Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is the third red hard rubber Waterman 52 1/2 V that I have offered in the last couple months, which is quite odd as these are these are actually fairly rare. This pen is a great condition with crisp and clear imprints. The gold trim looks good. No brassing on the band or ring top. There is a scrap on the lever, but otherwise it looks new. The nib has decent flex that comes quite easily, but it isn’t as responsive as I would like. The nib also has a very small crack coming from the air hole on the right side. Couldn’t pick it up in the pictures. Free Gift: From now until Christmas, everyone one of my buyers gets a free 2ml sample of Pilot Iroshizuku ink!
