Waterman 52V Red Ripple – Super Flex

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

Here is a nice Waterman 52V in red ripple hard rubber. The red ripple has faded some, but not a lot. It still has pretty good color. The imprints are all present and readable. A little faded but also not a lot. The gold filled trim is also in good condition. The one blemish is on the lever where at the base there is a small scrape. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a soft and smooth F (0.5mm). It has a springy feel to it and is a lovely writer, especially if you enjoy wet nibs. The flex comes easily on this nib and ranges up to near BBB (1.7mm). The responsiveness of the flex is average. Overall, this is a beauty of a pen in very nice condition.
