Waterman 452 1/2 V – Super Flex

Waterman 452 1/2 – Super Flex (On Ebay)

This Waterman 452 1/2 comes in a sterling silver basket weave filigree overlay. The overlay does have some small scratches throughout due to normal use of the pen. There are no major dings, and the pen is in pretty good condition considering it’s age. The hard rubber underneath has faded some to a dark brown. The lever doesn’t quite lay perfectly flat, but it does click into place as normal. There are no personalizations on the pen. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a lovely nib. It isn’t an ultra smooth writer and has just a hint of feedback. It also has some nice character to it. Almost stubbish. I really enjoyed writing with it. The flex on this nib is soft and easy. It doesn’t have a huge range maxing out at 1.5mm, but it is very snappy and responsive. It makes quality flex writing feel easy.
