Waterman 0552 1/2 V – Wet Noodle (On Ebay)

A pretty little Waterman 552 1/2 V ring top. It measures at 3 3/4″. The pen is in pretty good condition, but no where near mint. There is some light scratching in places and deeper scratching on one spot on the lip of the cap (see pic). There is also some wear on the back of the barrel where the cap gets posted. A few very tiny dings here and there. It is personalized with the initials “L.M.B.” This is a very wet medium nib that has fantastically easy flex, and thus the wet noodle grade. It’s not quite a paintbrush, but it still can be a bit hard to control. It flexes all the way up to 2.6mm without even pushing it. Being that this is a WET noodle and a small pen, you can run through an ink fill pretty quickly. A great little pen.
