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.
