Waterman 52V Olive Ripple Pen & Pencil Combo – SUPER FLEX (SOLD)

Waterman 52V Olive Ripple Pen & Pencil Combo – SUPER FLEX  (See Price Here)

Here is a Waterman 52V Olive Ripple with matching Pencil. The Olive Ripple is one of the most difficult Ripples to come by and very collectable. The pair are in excellent condition with very little fading. The gold-filled trim is in excellent condition with no brassing. There is a slight scratch across the top of the lever, but that is about it. Imprints are good and readable. The matching pencil is not restored. I merely cleaned it up. I assume it’s functional but I haven’t tested it. The Waterman #2 14kt. nib is a nice XF point that writes smooth with a slightly stubbish feel. This nib has the circle rather than the heart air hole, and it has some scuffing on top of it wearing down the nib imprints some. The flex on this pen is quite soft and flexes quite easily up to 1.6mm. The nib is a bit finicky about the angle you hold the nib to paper. The feed keeps up well, but if you get off the right angle you can get some railroading.
