Bonjour
Some guys do knows me as a Waterman adict. It's true
But, (I'm french) a day that I do phone to Mr Mora (Morastylos.com), we talk me about Graf von Faber Castell at good price (because a friend on a french forum have one Graf and says me it's a so nice pen). He told me that he have nice price on old Graf serie at 215 euros for a new pen (against 430 euros for the (same) new collection!!) (you can go to, 2 Graf still for sell : 1 Ebene, 1 Penambouc at 220 euros, new pen from Mora, you will not find best price for this type of pen : You can said that you' know me, Mr Mora knows me too now with the some pens I've bought !!!)
Then, I think :why not
After this phone call, I think "why do I take this pe, perhaps I will not love this pen ...."
When pen arrived, I tested it and WAOU, what a very good nib, smooth (F nib) like singing nib (nib make very nice noise !) and a very good pen, very good in hand
And when a retailer from shop who will closed told me that she have a new Graf in silver sterling for sale at 275 euros (on net, in France, retail price is 650/675 euros !!) I say immediatly : "keep it for me !"
ANd then , it comes : what a pen, with M nib, more large than a Waterman M but so smooth, very easy to use on paper !!
Graf is really great pen, more than more known brand (I don't like MB pen !!) and very, very good finished


Here are my Graf

Nice review, great looking pen, thanks.
And how can this be, because he is the Kwisatz Haderach.
