Are you saying that not only is the set overpriced, but that it's either phoney or not up to par regardless of the "Royal" connection? I don't understand and need enlightenment, please! I'm just happy that the pen I have really did come from somewhere in King Hussein's family or government as a gift, that it is engraved with the Jordanian crown, and that it works well and looks good. And, the price I paid for it is under when a "normal" Waterman Gentleman usually goes for.

Hemisphere?  Philisphere?

 

Don't mind me, I know very little about these pens, demonstrated every time I write something..

What I've noticed is all the silver Waterman Gentleman fountain pens that are up for hundreds of dollars and have been listed for months now. There's also a Gentleman 44 listed for $900 that was just dropped to $720. I got mine last month for $65, same pen. Who ever buys these expensive pens?

My rant is now finished.

Chinese Duke is now making cheap copies of cheap Pilots?  I thought cheap copies of cheap Lamys was enough.  Have the Chinese companies completely run out of pen models to copy?  

But no Phileas or Carene copies?  I find it an outrage that the Pilot 78G gets copied before the Phileas or Carene.

Sorry it's not Waterman, but I do find it funny.

Wonderful!  A cheap imitation of the Pilot 78G.  That is pretty funny.  They might have imitated the Edson or Laureat also, but they must have been warned off.  I could imagine a knock-off Carene, with medium nib only.  Most likely in colors not found in the Carene line up.  Not even in Rustoleum.

Dutchpen has some nice Carene nibs available at a heck of a better price than I paid for two I bought.  He has broad and oblique broad.  LOL. 

 

I know, that's a groaner.

Re: L'etalon, thanks to Dutchpen I have the same nib in a Phileas.  I wonder what to do with the L'etalon section.  It doesn't seem to fit anything.  It would be nice to have two outrages for the price of one.

Is that only the outer shell of the section, or including the feed?

 

If including the feed I would keep it, as these feeds do crack sometimes. I bought one NOS a few years ago, but had to have it repaired right away because of a leaking section. They told me the feed was broken. So I would say: keep the section for your own use, or to make someone else happy if need be...

Good idea.  If anybody needs one, preferably in usa, let me know.

 

Have 2 sections for Expert II also.  Those nibs work well in Laureat.

Where do some get their pen values. Surely it's not that difficult to find out.

 

You can have this or this.
