Waterman 52 V Red Ripple – Super Flex

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

This Waterman 52V Red Ripple is in nice condition. The hard rubber has faded some. A little more on the cap than the body. But it still looks pretty good. The imprints are partly faded. The gold filled band has a little brassing along the top edge. The clip and lever still look great. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a wet and smooth writing F. It’s a great vintage writer and it has some really nice flex. The range of flex is excellent going from F to BBB (0.4mm-1.8mm), and it comes very easily. This isn’t a wet noodle, but it is nearing that range. The flow is great keeping up well with the flexing nib. Overall this is a great, vintage Waterman with a top quality flex nib.
