Waterman 56, Ripple red hard rubber

Waterman 56 in Ripple red hard rubber. The 56 was the second-largest of Waterman’s lever-fillers produced in the late-1920s (the largest was the 58), and the Ripple ebonite was unique to the company.

This pen is really nice for regular writing: taller and fatter than the 52/54, with a large #6 nib that’s also the softest, flexiest I’ve ever had the good fortune to own – though I hesitate to call it a “full” flex nib.

Length (capped): 14 cm
Length (uncapped): 13.7 cm
Barrel girth: 1.3 cm

  1. Thanks very much for this website. I found a Parker 45 and 51 Fountain Pens at Pek Tay Lee’s store. I have been searching for these writing instruments for a while. The son of Pek Tay Lee was very informative and has such a diverse range of new and old writing instruments and is more than help for you to try before you buy. Thanks again I appreciate. Sophia
