Waterman 52 1/2V Red Ripple – Super Flex (SOLD)

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

This is a gorgeous Waterman 52 1/2 V pen in the famous Waterman red ripple hard rubber. The pen is in superb condition. There is very little fading to the hard rubber. It’s lost a some of it’s shine, but it still has it’s beautiful color. The imprints are all good and crisp throughout the pen. The trim shows no signs of brassing. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a wonderful XF (0.3mm) that writes surprisingly smooth and wet. This pen also has some beautiful flex that comes with ease. It ranges from XF-BB (0.3mm-1.5mm). And while that is not as big a range as some super flex nibs, this one has a superb responsiveness that is hard to match. It’s a stunner and a great writer.
