[SOLD]Waterman 52v Ripple $160
[SOLD]Waterman 52v Ripple
This is a beautiful 52v Ripple with a XXF nib. Hairlines are capable with a light hand. Has nice color and beautiful woodgrain ripple pattern. The imprints are very good. The cap is a ring top, and it screws on/off and smooth/snug. Gold trim is almost perfect except a hint of wear on the edge of the cap band, and on the edge of the Ideal Globe. The nib is the original 14k gold Waterman's Ideal #2 nib. A full flex that writes from XXF to BBB. It is getting harder and harder to find nibs that are capable of hairlines. It is probably the most desirable trait of a flex pen besides how wide the lines can get. There are some very light bite marks on the cap and end of the pen, but they are light and sparse. Freshly restored with a thorough cleaning, new sac, and a light polish. This one will not last long! Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 11cm capped, 14cm posted, and 10.3cm unposted.
