Waterman 52 Red Ripple – SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

This is a Waterman 52 Red Ripple in gold trim. The hard rubber is a little faded. There a few small scuffs and brassing marks on the gold filled lever as well as some brassing on the top edge of the band. The clip looks sharp and clean. Side imprint is worn but readable, but the “52” on the end is worn mostly away. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a lovely, smooth writing XF (0.3mm). It’s a really nice writer and drier than most vintage Waterman’s, which is nice for writing on cheaper paper. It flexes quite easily up to 1.6mm. It is pretty snappy and has plenty of ink to keep up. Haven’t had it railroad on me yet.
