Waterman 52 1/2V – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 52 1/2V  – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

This vintage Waterman 52 1/2 V is really in fantastic condition. The black chased hard rubber body is still very black with little to no fading. The chasing is also good and crisp as well as all the imprints. The pen really looks to have hardly ever been used. The nickel trim also looks near perfect. The most essential part of any pen, the nib, is lovely as well. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a wet and butter smooth XF. You just don’t find XF nibs this smooth. It’s pure joy to use. It also has very good flex ranging from XF-BBB (0.3mm to 1.6mm). I have graded this as a super flex, but I would say it’s a lower tier super flex. That is, it’s closer to a “good flex” grade than a “wet noodle” grade. Still, it’s extremely hard to find these in such a good condition and the overall writing experience is phenomenal.
