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

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

Here is beautiful 52 1/2 V in a vibrant wood grain. Yes, I said vibrant because the hard rubber has almost no fading on it. The imprints are crisp. The gold-filled trim is in superb condition with no brassing and no scratching. This is “Near Mint” collector’s quality. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib keeps up this pen’s impressive qualities. It writes as a nice smooth and wet XF. Just at touch of feedback. The flex on this is wonderful. It’s a “super flex” nearing wet noodle status. The range is great going from XF (0.3mm) to BBB swells (1.8mm). Flow is good and responsiveness is pretty good. It’s just a bit too stiff to be a noodle, but still a top notch quality flex nib. Awesome little pen.
