Waterman 52 – Good-Super Flex

Waterman 52 – Good-Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is the iconic Waterman 52 in BCHR. The pen is in good condition with some fading of the hard rubber. I’d say it’s a dark brown. Chasing is still present but somewhat worn. Much more worn on the body than the cap. The nickel-filled trim is in nice condition with no brassing that I can see. The Waterman 14kt. #2 nib is XF (0.3mm). It is a lovely writer. Just beautifully soft and smooth with plenty of flow. The flex has a good range going up to BB (1.4mm). Ease of flex is good. The responsiveness is a bit less than the typical “super flex” nib, which is why I graded this as somewhere between “good” and “super” flex. Overall, this is a wonderful pen.
