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.
