Waterman 52V – SUPER FLEX

IMG_9136

Waterman 52V – SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

Here is an interesting Waterman. It’s technically marked a 54V on the end of the barrel, but the girth of this pen is no bigger than a 52 and the section does not fit a 54 feed or #4 nib. Perhaps the section is a replacement. Not sure, but it’s definitely a Waterman section and fits snuggly in the barrel. The pen is made of an originally smooth black hard rubber that has faded to a dark brown. It has a few spots (more like dots) of lighter fading. The side imprint is worn and almost unreadable. There is brassing on the top edge of the gold-filled band and a little on the edges of the globe on the lever. It’s also missing the ring top. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a wet writing F that writes a very nice, smooth line normally. Great writer. It has pretty good ease of flex and decent responsiveness. It’s not an upper tier super flex nib, but it is still quite good. I love this size of pen and this one can do it all.
