Waterman 52V Red Ripple – Super Flex

Waterman 52V Red Ripple – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a lovely Waterman 52V in Waterman’s iconic red ripple hard rubber. With the nickel trim, this is likely from the European market. The fading of this pen is minimal, and the imprints are still very crisp. There is also minimal wear on the trim and no brassing. In short, this pen is close to mint condition. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a beautiful nib. It’s a wet, glassy smooth writing XF (0.3mm). When flexed this ranges up to BBB (1.7mm) with ease. The flow has no trouble keeping up. Though the wetness of the flow does make it a bit less responsive than it would be, the responsiveness is still decent. Overall, this is a fantastic all around Waterman in fantastic condition.
