Thanks! It's a great little pen, and one that I'm reasonably sure that I'm not getting rid of anytime soon.

I am very happy that you took the time out to write this review instead of typing it. it shows how good it writes and how much you love to write with it.

great job thumbup.gif

I found my Commando in an antique mall - missing its clip and very neglected. After Fred Krinke got done with it, it had a new clip, new sac and looked new - and it turned out to be a wonderful writer. As you say, part of its charm is its understatement - it's a simple pen that turns out to be great.

See these around at pen shows but never noticed them too much until now. The Commando has a classic Waterman look to it and clearly shows its design lineage. Thanks for this quick review.
