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.
