Just a quick little note on my first vintage flex pen. I bought it on fleaBay as a "parts only" pen, but then saw it just needed a new sack and a good clean.

The pen is quite small and even though I never post my pens, I HAVE to post this to write comfortably. The real reason for this quick review is to show the amazing flex this nib has:

I'm sure I'm going to have a lot of fun with this pen and will post a proper review once I've used it more.

To be honest, I have NO idea :embarrassed_smile:

This is my first foray into the Waterman world. All I can tell you is that on the nib it says:

Waterman's
IDEAL
Reg. U.S.
PAT. OFF.

I should have measured it while I had it out.

That's a lovely little woodgrain pen, Mine's resting today. The V in 52V means a vestpocket length. There's a 52 1/2 V that's the same length but narrower and less comfortable to write with.
