Waterman Red Ripple 52 (Near Mint) – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman Red Ripple 52 (Near Mint) – Super Flex   (See Price Here)

Here is a gorgeous Waterman Red Ripple that looks to have some after market additions (probably from the French market though it was made in the USA). There red ripple is beautiful with a lovely shine and almost no fading. There is a little scuffing and brassing on the top of the lever otherwise this pen is wonderful condition. The imprints all looks very good and crisp. The rest of the trim shows no signs of brassing. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a wonderful, soft writing XF that is smooth and feels elegant when writing. It has some good flex that goes from XF to BB (0.3mm-1.6mm). It is on the stiffer side of super flex nibs, but it superbly responsive making detailed flex quite easy accomplish. Overall, clearly a fabulous pen.
