Waterman 52 1/2V  – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

A very nice BCHR 52 1/2V. It has minimal browning. The chasing is still pretty good, and the imprints are very crisp. The nickel plated lever is still in good condition. It has a Waterman #2 that writes normally as an XF (0.3mm) and flexes up to BBB (1.8mm). This was a hard nib to grade. It’s a bit stiff for what I would normally grade a Super Flex, but it is quite responsive and the range makes very some very good flexing.

Wahl Gold Filled Ring Top – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a lovely little Wahl Gold Filled Ring Top with patent date 1904. It is in good condition. It does have some light scratching throughout the pen and a very tiny ding on the end of the barrel. But there is little to no brassing that I can see, and the pattern on this pen makes it really come to life in the light. The Wahl #2 nib is a very smooth XXF nib that flexes easily and with fantastic responsiveness up to 1.7mm. Detail flexing is very good and easy.
