PEN REVIEW: Waterman 52

On Friday, I shared some recent purchases including this little gem I acquired from VintagePen.

Going to (mostly) let the pictures do the talking here . . .

That's a little nib creep - not rust or anything icky like that

love the gentle chevron - so subtle

And now . . .

Sammy is one of our three (!!) dogs.

My handwriting needs a bit of work, but man-oh-man, I am digging this pen. So much so that some of my other favorite pens have been sitting around unused in the short time I've had the Waterman 52.

It's a little skinny, a little short - neither of those things are a bother to me. It writes wonderfully - perfectly smooth, easy to flex. It's not even a little scratchy and it doesn't skate uncontrollably across the paper.

The lever-fill is easy to manage - perhaps a pain to clean and ink capacity seems a bit low, but I can live with those things.

I love everything about the pen except there's no clip on the cap - making the pen very likely to roll around. I hope so much that I never inadvertently set it down and have it roll onto the floor. Yikes.

This is a pen that will stay in the house because I really would be heartbroken if something happened to it.

It's love! True love.
