So, my newest purchase arrived in the mail today: a Waterman C/f matching fountain pen and ballpoint pen set. As I didn't have a C/f yet, I was quite excited to write with this pen and see if I liked it. I do, although it is more slender than the pens to which I've grown accustomed. I bought this for a song on ebay, so that was fairly exciting as well. I also found, as a result of searching through some old posts here, that one of my refills for my Must de Cartier ballpoint pen would fit the C/f ballpoint. It fit like a glove. Fantastic.
However, the real excitement arrived when I started investigating the pen box in which the two pens were housed. It's the original box, and I fully expected to find all the cartridges missing. Well, I was quite mistaken. Not only are all the original cartridges there (all eight of them!!!), seven(!!) of them are actually still full of ink. One was empty and completely clean. I tell you, it was like opening presents on Christmas morning. Wow. I'm still in shock as a matter of fact. Not only that, but these cartridges are quite easy to refill with a syringe. I took the empty one and filled it with my Noodler's Bulletproof Hunter Green, which I've been wanting to try for a couple of weeks. Exquisitely smooth writer, with a 14 k nib that actually has a bit of flex to it. Surprising, I must admit.
At any rate, I simply wanted to share my joy with you.
