Waterman 52V Cardinal Red – SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

Here is a Waterman 52V in the hardest hard rubber to find, the Cardinal Red. This pen is in good condition but does have some blemishes. The main issue is that there was some light teeth marks on the end of the barrel and to top of the cap. I buffed a lot of these marks out, but I could not remove all evidence of them. So if you look close you can tell that the ends of the pen are not quite as smooth as the whole body, but you do only see up close. The gold filled trim is in good condition. There is a tiny little ding on the band and a tiny spot of brassing on the lever. The imprint is worn but still readable. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is fantastic. It’s a soft, butter smooth XF (0.3mm). It’s just a pleasure to write with. And it has a nice springy, responsive flex that ranges up to 1.8mm. It’s a great nib and a great pen.
