Waterman 52V -Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 52 – Super Flex (On Ebay)

This is a Waterman 52 in vest pen size (“V”) and made from black chased hard rubber. The BCHR body has browned some to a dark, grayish brown. The chasing has also worn smooth in some places (like on the cap), though it is still visible throughout the pen. Imprints are also worn a bit, though mostly readable. The nickel filled trim is in overall good condition. No pitting or plate loss. Some light and very small scuffs are present in a few places. The Waterman #2 14kt. nib on this pen is a beauty. It is a F (0.5mm) stub nib that writes soft and glassy smooth. The nib is wet, though not gushing. And it has some superb flex action ranging from F to BBB+ (2.0mm). The flex comes quite easily and has some excellent responsiveness. The stub quality of the nib works beautifully with the flex, and is a real and unique pleasure to use. These flex stubs are not  that easy to find.
