Waterman 52 1/2V – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 52 1/2V  – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is a Waterman 52 1/2V in BCHR with nickel trim. Parts of the black hard rubber body still look pretty black, but it has faded some (especially the cap) to a very dark brown. The chasing and the imprints on this pen are superb and almost look brand new. The nickel plated trim is excellent. The only blemish is that it appears someone did try and pull the lever with a hardened sac inside, and then thought better of it as the lever is slightly bent at the pivot. But there are no cracks or signs of weakness in the lever. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a soft, smooth, lovely writing F that has a pretty soft flex going up to BB (1.6mm). It’s not the most responsive super flex nib, but the flex comes quite easy and the nib writes beautifully.
