Waterman 52 1/2 V (Near Mint) – Super Flex (SOLD)

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

Here is a Waterman 52 1/2 V in about as good of condition as you can find them. This pen looks brand new with basically no signs of use. The black hard rubber is just that. Jet black and still with its original shine. The chasing is crisp and vivid with no texture loss. The imprints look as good new. The nickel filled trim also looks good. It’s in pristine condition. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a beauty. It’s a a needlepoint XXF (0.25mm). For how fine it is, it writes pretty smooth with just a little feedback. The flex isn’t huge ranging up to BB (1.5mm), but it does’t need to be. The nib snaps back beautifully creating a very responsive action on the nib. It’s a great nib for artists and calligraphers. This pen combines two rare things: a near perfect black chased hard rubber vintage Waterman AND an XXF responsive nib.
