Ooooh it looks beautiful. May I ask where you got your Etalon nib from?

 

Now I have to have one

From a pen I had in my collection which had a leaky section. On that pen I replaced the complete section with a new one obtained from Dutchpen so had the medium nib spare. You might try Dutchpen for a nib only. He had some for sale a few months ago.

Just saw that one. If it were me certainly a project as I dislike the finish on that Carene. But you know what they say about tastes....

Is this an FPN name or an eBay name? I've got a nib unit (F) that has cracks in the section. I'm not sure I want to muck with putting the nib in a bare section (where would I get *that*, anyway?) but if I can find a *reasonably* priced unit I might go for that.

Dutchpen is a FPN member.

This ebayer in the UK is selling broad sections so you could buy one of them and swap nibs.

You didn't have one of these already?  Shocking.

Very nice Danube Blue.  I have never understood the brown veins in the design, though.  Is it supposed to like like a type of marble?

Not sure, the box just says Waterman Phileas Blue. Perhaps it represents all the junk floating in the river.

Or you could buy one with a bent nib...strange how the description does not mention it.

The seller must be relying on his picture that appears to show a nib looking like it was straightened with a pair of pliers.  An undocumented feature.

Just chiming in to wish alll a Happy New Year. The Phileas drawing pens have been silent and still of late here in TwelveLand. But there is a stirring in the winds of spirit that suggest another set of twelve might spring forth soon.

 

Hope all have been well. Glad to see Phileas pens being grabbed up by the wise and cogent experts here. My own modest cache lies undisturbed in a safe place, waiting for those skyrocketing values (hey, it could happen!).

 

Be well all. See you at the next turn in the Phileas saga.

Hi TD, long time no see.

 

Best wishes for 2015 (and beyond) to you too.....

 

 

Can you add to the saga with some new Phileas-made pieces of art?

Hi-
 
I have two Phileas pens.  P/N of the red marbled model is 19714-WA.
 
My wife loves this model with its F nib, but would love a BB nib for it.
(her desire came from writing with an MB 146 BB)
 
Is it possible to get a BB nib for the Phileas?
Can I change the nib myself?
 
* But a concern: I seem to recall hearing that the Medium Waterman Phileas nib is a very wet writer?
(so if a BB exists, how wet would IT be!?)
 
Moot point if a BB doesn't exist.
 
Call 1 800 bestpen. Ask about the nib


Same for repl cap, nibs run $28. Approx

Broad sections are available in the UK.

 

Alternatively seek a broad L'etalon and swap nibs.
