Waterman 52V – SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

A very nice Waterman 52 V Red Ripple (Sorry, pic is wrong. It is a 52V and not a 52 1/2V). This pen is in fantastic condition with one caveat. Fading of the hard rubber is very minimal. Gold trim is in good condition with just a little bit of brassing on the top of the band and edges of the lever. Imprints are crisp. But there is a crack in the threaded end of the barrel (see pics). The crack has been sealed. I also shellacked the section in the barrel to provide stability. It should hold fine, and you only notice the crack if you are looking for it. The nib on this pen is just fantastic. It is a very easy and responsive Super flex nib that is also a nice soft and smooth normal writer. Free Gift: From now until Christmas, everyone one of my buyers gets a free 2ml sample of Pilot Iroshizuku ink!
