Waterman 52 Red Mottled – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 52 Red Mottled – Super Flex (On Ebay)

This is a superb Waterman 52 in red mottled hard rubber. The wood grain hard rubber pattern is still very nice with very little fading. In fact, it looks almost as nice as when new. It still even has some good shine to it. Imprints are all very nice and crisp. The gold filled trim is in good condition. There is a little bit of wear on the very edges of the clip and the edges of the lever box; otherwise, it looks beautiful. I grade the pen Near Mint if wasn’t for this little bit of wear. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a special one. This is a wet and smooth writing XF (0.3mm) that really borders on being a wet noodle. The flex is very easy and goes from XF – BB (0.3mm to 1.7mm). It’s the responsiveness that really sets this nib apart. It’s more responsive than a good many wet noodles. It’s the perfect nib for calligraphic writing. This is just a superb example of what a Waterman pen can be at it’s best.
