Sal, thanks for another review contribution on the Waterman Phileas. Unfortunately, your writing sample image is huge (2549x3299). Can you please resize to within 800x800? Thanks...

Good review Mr Sal!
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of nothing at all...

I'm not particularly fond of the appearance of the nib. I much prefer the plainer nib on the Phileas' little brother, the Kultur. It is a fairly nice pen to write with though and the body is also rather fetching.
