The pen I am reviewing today and actually using for quite long is Wality 52 PD. And this is my every day carry (edc) pen. Th detailed review of same with the handwritten samples and size comparison can be found on my blog here.

Wality 52 PD



This is actually the second Wality pen I bought after Wality 69 A, because i liked the way 69 A wrote. Wality pens are manufactured by Airmail Pen Company based out of Mumbai, India. Like 90% of my pens this pen also was procured from ASAPENS also. It is also available at Fountain Pen Revolution albeit at Higher price.


Design:


This pen arrived along with my other Wality pens like 71JT, 70 AM and Pilot 78G BB Nib. This actually is my second Wality pen and it happens to be a piston filler. It comes in variety of colors like green, teal, burgundy, blue and black.

Wality 52 PD - Uncapped



Like my previous Wality pen this also gives a certain pungent odor and from what i have come to know is that they they have used a LDPE plastic, which smells a bit. I washed it with detergent water and also kept it overnight in detergent water but still a faint smell persists which now at the time of writing review has subdued.


The pen is a classic design and has an amazing build quality for an inexpensive pen. Unlike many Chinese pens (no offence) this pen has a certain character and recall value.


Classic Design with matte finished silver cap and clip inspired from the skyline series. And has that feel and character to it which makes it my EDC pen.

Wality 52 PD - Classic Vintage Look



The pen actually feels quite solid in hand and has certain heft to it. The cap top and bottom of pen are rounded and pen itself is quite straight without any tapering towards bottom or top.

Rounded top and bottom



The Nib is monotone gold colored and the cap has inner lining of plastic and actually the matte silver metal is molded with the plastic. Also there is a inner plastic lining to prevent ink drying.

Nib is Monotone - Gold Color



The pen cap open in 2 1/2 turns. The Clip is also silver colored and quite sturdy and springy at the same time. No complaints whatsoever in those regards.

Wality 52 PD - Inner cap lining



There is an ink window on the barrel just below the threads which actually is beneficial to get the idea of ink levels.

This piston filler mechanism at the bottom is separated from main barrel via a silver colored 'O' ring.This retro look classic design pen is built for lifetime and rough tough usage. Full marks to the build quality.

Thank you for the review. Went to the ASAPENS site and this pen was not even listed.

 

Not sure why. Yes it was on FPR.

Another excellent review. Thank you. I have one of these in the olive color. It is an excellent, piston fill pen for the price. One thing I found with mine was that the piston was installed in such a way that the pen could not draw in as much ink as it should. A quick disassembly and adjustment later it now holds quite a bit more ink. I wish this mechanism and construction style could be applied to an ebonite pen. Please keep the reviews coming. I very much like your photographs.

I have one of these, though I can't seem to find the exact model anywhere online. It's blue, with a lovely ornate cap, and cost only $2.00. I love my $2.00 Wality. :D

I think it is called 52PD, the D stands for design cap. I have one in burgundy, as well as the plain-cap model. Nice pens and they wrote well from the first instance. I will look into the piston mechanism, although I do find it holds a lot of ink, so maybe I got lucky...
