Waterman 52 – Wet Noodle (SOLD)


Waterman 52 – Wet Noodle  (See Price Here)

This Waterman 52 is made of BCHR and is in great condition. The BCHR is still quite black. The cap, which was and is a clipless version, looks near mint with crisp chasing and jet black color. The chasing on the body is more worn, though visible, and has faded a bit to a duller black. The side imprint is worn, though mostly readable. The “52” is very crisp with the red dye still present. The nickel plated lever is in good condition with only minimal plate loss. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is fantastic. It is a very juicy, smooth writing fine with enormous amounts of flex. If you don’t write softly, the tines will spread and ink and the nib will write more like a very wet Medium. The flex is very easy, though not a paintbrush, and goes all the way up to 2.8mm. It is rather responsive as well and makes for some big and crisp looking flex writing.
