Waterman 52V Olive Ripple Pen & Pencil – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 52V Olive Ripple Pen & Pencil – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is a beautiful set of a Waterman pen and pencil in Waterman’s superb olive ripple hard rubber. The bodies of the pens have some darkening due to oxidation, but it isn’t pronounced. They both still look very good. The gold filled trim looks excellent. There is just a little brassing on the upper edge of the pen’s cap band. Also the “IDEAL” globe on the lever is partly worn off. Both pieces have the name “Sigred Johnson” engraved in the sides. I have not tested the pencil for functionality, but I assume it works. The pen is equipped with a lovely 14kt. Waterman #2 nib that is a juicy, wet writing F that has a soft, wet flex that goes from F (0.4mm) to BB (1.6mm). The flex comes very easily and has a nice spring to it. The original olive feed was too dry for the nib, so I replaced it with another black Waterman feed. However, I can switch it back or send it with the pen on request. This is an incredible set and the flex is outstanding.
