Waterman 52 1/2V – SUPER FLEX (SOLD)

IMG_5080

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

This is a very nice Waterman 52 1/2 V. In the Waterman numbering system, “1/2” stands for a thinner profile and the “V” stands for vest pen. The barrel of this pen is near mint. It is jet black, crisp chasing and imprints, and the lever looks almost brand new. The cap, however, has faded a little. It would still look quite black if the barrel wasn’t so black. Chasing is still good on the cap. The 14kt. #2 Waterman nib is a nice XF with super flex ability. It can get a little finicky with some inks and railroad some before it reaches it’s full potential. But even when flexed conservatively, the responsive nib makes flex writing quite easy.

Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Super Flex! (SOLD)

IMG_5086

Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

The Skyline is one of the most interesting and iconic pen designs there is. Designed to be reminiscent of a locomotive, it may be a little strange in appearance but it feels fantastic in the hand. This Skyline is made of black celluloid with gold filled trim. There is some very light scratching of the body, but I have buffed and polished it. There is some plate loss on the lever and some pitting on the edges of the clip. Otherwise, the pen is in great condition. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a very smooth fine with a wet, juicy feed that flexes all the way up to 2.0mm. A nice super flex nib on a great pen.

IMG_5082

Eagle Pencil Co. Pen – SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

This Eagle Pencil Co. Pen actually has an Aiken Lambert cap. Both are black chased hard rubber but the chasing patterns are different. The hard rubber is in very good condition throughout the pen. Very black with little fading or wear on the chasing. The clip is pat. 1905 and has some plate loss. The Eagle lever has shows some wear. The 14kt. Eagle nib is a nice, wet medium with super flex ability. The feed is plenty juicy so it has no trouble keeping up. The nib is responsive enough to be a super flex despite it being as broad as it is.

Mabie Todd Swan Red Mottled- Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a made in England Mabie Todd “Swan” Self-Filler in red mottled hard rubber. The pen is in excellent condition. There is minimal fading of the hard rubber. The lever has a little bit of brassing, but not much. Imprints are all very clear and crisp. The nib is a very flexy 14kt. Mabie Todd nib (I think it’s a #2, but I forgot to check before reinserting it) that goes from a fine 0.5mm all the way up to 2.1mm. The nib writes very smoothly and flexes just as smoothly.

Waterman 52 (Italic Nib) – Medium Flex (SOLD)

IMG_5084

Waterman 52 (Italic Nib) – Medium Flex  (On Ebay)

The BCHR on this Waterman 52 has faded to a brown as you can see. The chasing is worn but visible. Imprints are pretty decent. The lever is in good condition, but the box around it has some plate loss. It is also missing the clip on the cap, and there are some light marks on the top of the cap (possible bite marks). The 14kt. Waterman #2 italic nib is fantastic. Quite crisp for how fine it is but still pretty smooth. The feed is plenty wet, and the nib flexes nicely up 1.4mm. A great writing pen that will really add character to your writing.

IMG_5010

Wahl Silver & Gold Ring Top – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a gorgeous two tone Wahl ring top. The gold/siver two tone look is stunning. Overall, the pen is in very good condition with one exception. The ring top is missing from the pen (see pic). Otherwise, the pen is beautiful. I found one little ding under the lever, but that is about it. There is not a lot of wear to the gold and silver throughout. The Wahl #2 nib is a smooth XF with super flex ability. It is quite responsive and goes quite easily up to 1.7mm. Gorgeous little pen.

IMG_5020

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

This is a nice little Waterman 52 1/2 V in Cardinal Red hard rubber. The red hard rubber is fairly rare in Waterman’s, and these pens have quite a retro look about them. This pen is in pretty good condition. Imprints are worn but you can see them. The gold-filled trim is in very good condition with little to no brassing that I can find. The nib is a nice wet, soft, and very smooth fine that flexes up 1.8mm. A very pretty Waterman with super flex ability.

Eggens-Hambler (EHCO) Ring Top – Good Flex (SOLD)

IMG_5068

Eggens-Hambler Co. Ring Top – Good Flex

Here is an Eggens-Hambler black chased hard rubber ring top pen. Eggens and Hambler were previously employed by L.E. Waterman and produced pens of intermediate quality. This pen is in pretty good condition. It is still very black with little fading. The chasing and imprints are crisp. The gold filled trim is in good condition with only moderate brassing in places. The 14kt. nib is not original to the pen, though it fits well. The iridium is worn, but it is still present. The flex is quite easy with a good range. It just lacks the responsive needed to be a super flex. The nib is quite wet. You won’t be railroading with this pen.

SIZE:  4 1/4″ Capped

Waterman 52V Red Mottled – SUPER FLEX (SOLD)

 

IMG_4973

Waterman 52V – SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

Here a nice Waterman 52V in red mottled hard rubber. The hard rubber is faded somewhat. The clip also has a bit of a kink in it. Otherwise, the gold filled trim is in great condition with little to no brassing present. The imprints are good. The Waterman #2 was recently retipped by Greg Minuskin. The nib writes very wet and very, very smooth. It has wet noodle range and ease of flex. The only reason this isn’t a full fledged noodle in my opinion is that some inks do not keep up well with the flexing. As you can see, the Pilot Iroshizuku Fuyu-Gaki had no problem. I’ll be sending along a free sample of a Pilot Iro ink with this pen just to make sure you hit the ground running.

SIZE:  4 3/8″ Capped (Not including Ring Top)

Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Super Flex! (SOLD)

IMG_4955

Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is another very lovely Skyline. It’s standard size made of black celluloid with a gold filled cap and trim. There are some very tiny dings here and there in the cap. There is also some light scratching on the body, but I have buffed and polished much of it out. The lever also does have some plate loss (see pic). The nib is a F (sorry about the mess up on the picture) and writes smoothly and not overly wet. The flex is great and pretty easy to control. It’s a super flex nib that goes up 1.9mm and has a feed that keeps up well.
