Waterman 52 – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

This a made in Canada Waterman 52 in BCHR with nickel trim. The black hard rubber on this pen has faded to a grayish brown and the chasing is worn though it still has some texture on the cap. Pretty smooth on the barrel. The imprints on the pens are still very readable. The nickel plated trim looks great. Both clip and lever have very minimal plate loss, thought there is a little if you look close. This 52 sports a fantastic 14kt. Waterman #2 nib. The nib is a very smooth, soft writing XF (0.3mm). It is a great ease of flex with good, crisp responsiveness. Lovely super flex nib. The nib does have the slight bend in the nib (both tines at the same spot), but it really does not affect the performance of the pen. A really nice vintage 52 with with great flex.
