Waterma 52 1/2 – Super Flex   (On Ebay)

This Waterman 52 1/2 is faded to a brown. There was no original chasing on the pen. The imprints are a little worn, but still pretty decent. The original clip is no longer on the cap and an Eagle Pencil Co. accommodation clip is in it’s place. The original lever had a a tab under the lever box that was broken, so I have glued the box in place. Looking at it you can’t tell it is any different from any other lever box, and it should stay bonded for perhaps the life of the pen. Certainly a good long time. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a nice super flex nib. It is quite responsive and easy to do some crisp flexing. It writes normally as an XF and is smooth with decent wetness.
