Waterman 52 Red Ripple – SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

This is a Waterman 52 Red Ripple with the rarer nickel plated trim (usually it’s gold filled trim). The pen is in great condition. There is only slight fading to the red ripple hard rubber. In fact, the only thing that it seems to have lost in color is the high gloss finish. There is some wear on the clip, but it still looks pretty good. The lever has little to no plate loss. The imprints on the pen are all very good. The 14kt. Waterman #2 Canada nib is a soft, springy and smooth XF. It takes very little pressure to make this nib flex and you will definitely be flexing without intending to at times. It is a super flex nib that is approaching wet noodle status but not quite there. It flexes from XF to BBB (0.3mm to 2.0mm). Really great pen.
