Waterman 52 V Red Ripple – Super Flex

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

This is a beautiful 52V in Red Ripple hard rubber in very nice condition. The fading on the red ripple hard rubber is very minimal, and the pen body is still popping with bright color. The imprints are still pretty good and easily readable. The gold-filled trim looks good as well, but does have a few spots of brassing. These include a couple of small spots on the lever, a little on the ball of the clip, and a couple tiny spots on the “Waterman’s” on the clip. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a good one. It’s a very nice, wet writing F (0.4mm) with a soft and smooth sweet spot. The line the nib produces does have a little bit of character to it, but I wouldn’t call it a stub. The flex on this pen is lovely as well. It flexes easily up to 1.8mm. But the real joy is just how snappy and responsive it is. It’s easy to achieve some beautiful calligraphy with this nib. A gorgeous red ripple Waterman with superb flex nib. What more can you want?
