Waterman 52 1/2 – Good Flex (SOLD)


Waterma 52 1/2 – Good Flex   (On Ebay)

This Waterman 52 1/2 is in good condition with a few caveats. It is faded to a dark brown. The chasing still has quite a bit of texture to it. Imprints have a bit of wear but are still readable. There is not brassing on the gold filled trim. There is, however, a crack in the cap. It goes up from the lip of the cap and turns horizontal for a few millimeters a little below the breather hole (see pic). At some point a band was added to the bottom of the cap to keep the crack stable. I have also bonded the crack together. It isn’t very noticeable if you aren’t looking for it, and it’s not going to grow anymore. The added band has a few dings and scuffs on it (see pic). The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a nice writing XF with some good flex. Some would call this a semi-flex as it only flexes to 1.6mm. However, the flex comes quite easy and has a very nice responsiveness to it making it easy to do some nice flex work.

    I received my purchase in an extremely timely fashion. Great care was taken in the packaging of my pen with a lot of great personal touches including an ink sample of Irochizuju Ku-jaku! I hope this is the first of many purchases with this ebay seller! I was more than satisfied.
