I didn't recognize this was a Signum Python that I owned. I always thought it was a Signum Nova because I took the seller's word for it. A little research earlier today revealed two things. The pen was actually a Signum Python and the price I purchased this pen for was also a good deal. Enjoy the rest of the reading.

Looks like a great pen for general writing and correspondence. Love the broad italic nibs -- gives a great character to your handwriting.

Enjoy,

Yours,
Randal

From a person's actions, we may infer attitudes, beliefs, --- and values. We do not know these characteristics outright. The human dichotomies of trust and distrust, honor and duplicity, love and hate --- all depend on internal states we cannot directly experience. Isn't this what adds zest to our life?

Waterman convertors are narrower at the tip than standard, which explains why that didn't work.

Interesting remark GP. Which converter readily available in the market would, in your opinion, have a standard tip for the converter? I know the Edison pens can use the Waterman converters.

I'm not sure. The only Signum I ever owned was a piston fill and I sold it. Try emailing the Ink Flow for help as they carry Signum pens and carry convertors for many brands including Delta, which is what I was looking for when I stumbled on them.

Myu,

I can always provide you with handwriting lessons in exchange for a #76 pen from Edison. eureka.gif I even have the pen blanks sitting on my desk waiting for the savings jar to fill up.

I appreciate your description of the Signum Python, and just grabbed the opportunity to buy one.  Contrary to your experience, though, I didn't find that posting led to imbalance and discomfort.  Since the pen is light, the cap added heft.  It's a beautiful---and unusual--pen.  For my next feat?  I have my eye on the Doc, a Louis Vuitton leather-clad pen.  No, not the monstero Cargo!  

Warmest aloha,

Mary
