Waterman 52 Red Ripple – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

This is lovely Waterman 52 Red Ripple pen. The color of the hard rubber on this pen is very good with minimal fading. Unfortunately, it is missing the original gold filled clip but put on a nice accommodation clip or get a clip replacement and this pen would look almost near mint. The gold-filled lever has a couple of very small spots of brassing but otherwise looks great. Imprints on the pen are nice and crisp. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a very smooth and soft writing XF. It has some good flex up to 2.0mm. That’s a great range of flex, but the I would grade the ease of flex and responsiveness on the lower side of super flex. Still it’s a fantastic writer with nice flex and in very good condition.
