Waterman 52V Red Ripple – Super Flex

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

This Waterman 52V in the classic Waterman Red Ripple hard rubber is in excellent condition. The hard rubber shows very minimal fading and still has great color. The imprints are nice and crisp. The golf-filled trim is in great condition with no brassing. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a very lovely F. The nib is really a very nice normal writer. The kind that makes you want to write something just so you can use it. It’s buttery smooth with a good medium wetness. The flex on it has some good range going from F (0.4mm) to BBB (1.7mm) and the flow keeps up well. The responsiveness is decent but not out of this world. Overall, this is a superb Waterman 52V in superb condition
