Three in hand, one fixer of uncertain type from the French years coming in the mail that I'll use as a dip if I can't get fixed otherwise. As I've narrowed my preferred Waterman era down to the 1960s, I suspect my collection will be slow to grow.


An Expert I, medium nib, lovely writer, currently inked with Diamine for Cult Pen's Deep Dark Red.


An Exclusive, also a medium nib, so-so writer (probably need to adjust the nib), inked with Diamine Damson.


A Ligne 60, #3 nib with a hint of flex, my absolute favorite pen, currently inked with a reconstituted Waterman Blue Standard 23 cartridge, because I got a few packs of them on eBay to clear out in case my converter or the cartridge it came with ever fail and I thought I'd see if distilled water would bring the ink back to life before emptying it. (It did. The ink was a little thick before I added the water, but I've been writing heavily with it for about a week now with no problems.)

Waterman Expert (blue) with a medium nib.  I assume given the time I have had it is a first edition. This is my only fountain pen at this time.

I just purchased a Phileas today, blue and brown marbled, second hand, barely used.


I am absolutely in love with this pen. WOW!

I have a Waterman Gentleman that I bought in a lot on ebay with a Waterman rollerball and a Waterman fountain pen for $29.95. The Gentleman has an 18K nib. Crazy. (I was actually looking for the rollerball.)

Waterman is my favorite. I have 3 now, had more, but my son's friends "borrowed" them as they did a lot of things from our home as he was growing up.

There is Nothing like writing with a Fountain Pen.

I now have several different makes, Yet Waterman is the BEST
