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

Very nice Waterman 52V Red Ripple with more rare clip rather than ring top. There hard rubber has a little fading, but overall the color is quite good. There are some very small spots of brassing on the clip, band, and lever, but they are very slight. Imprints on these ripples are always tough to see, and this one is pretty worn and isn’t really readable. The “52V” at the end of the barrel is still readable though. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a very nice, smooth writing F nib. Not overly wet. This isn’t a typical super flex nib. It has quite good but not great range (0.4mm to 1.7mm), but what it lacks in range it makes up for in responsiveness. The nib is quite snappy and makes good, crisp flex pretty easy to achieve. Great pen.
