Waterman 52 – Wet Noodle (See Price Here)
Here is a fantastic Waterman 52 in BCHR. The pen is in great condition except for two flaws. The first is that the hard rubber has faded some to a dark blackish brown. The second is that the clip has been bent out and then back it to a shape that more closely resembles an Aikin Lambert clip. The lack of markings on the clip almost give you the impression that this was done for some intentional purpose. But that is just an educated guess. Anyway, it still functions well as a clip. Apart from this, the trim looks great with no brassing and every very little signs of wear. The chasing and the imprints on the pen are still very good as well. This pen also boasts a very lovely 14kt. Waterman #2 nib that is a very wet and smooth writing F (0.5mm). It’s a lovely writer (if you like wet pens) that has some soft, wet noodle flex. The ease of flex isn’t quite paintbrush soft, but it is getting close to that. It ranges from 0.5mm (F) to a large 1.9mm (BBB+). It’s a Waterman 52 with a great, noodle nib. What more is there to say.
