Waterman 52 – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

This is a Waterman 52 in pretty good condition. It is made of smooth black hard rubber (no original chasing). The black hard rubber has faded a little, but is still pretty black. The pen is missing it’s clip. The lever box does have some wear, and the lever still looks pretty decent even though it has some tiny spots of pitting. The imprints are all good. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is the real star of this pen. It is a fantastic Super flex that is nearing wet noodle statues. It writes as an XF (0.3mm) and flexes all the way to 2.3mm! That’s a 2.0mm flex range. It has great control and is a real pleasure to flex with. Will be sad to see this one go.
