Beautiful set of pens!

Breathe.  Take one step at a time.  Don't sweat the small stuff.  You're not getting older, you are only moving through time.  Be calm and positive.

I'm a poor, so I have only three Watermans, all with fine nibs:


Carene Blue Obsession


Hemisphere Blue Obsession


Waterman Kultur Purple.


I love them all.


I'll have to wait until fall to buy another one. :(


The next will probably be a Charleston, but if my finances are still rocky, then it will be an Expert.

Just two for now:


Carène Blue Obsession (F).


Edson Emerald (F).


They are grand pens, specially the Edson, and I love how they look and feel; unfortunately, that's about it! While both of them are great writers, their nibs don't have any distinguishing characteristics, given their high price (many el-cheapo pens write equally well). May be I should focus on the vintage Waterman's pens.

Yesterday I bought my first Waterman, a Hemisphere ballpoint.

I'm new to this forum - and own 2 Waterman pens - for now.


I bought them at the same time in the stationery department of Marshall Field's department store (now Macy's) when I worked in downtown Chicago. To me they are gorgeous pens. I was so ignorant about Waterman's that I tossed the box during one of me frequent moves...

:wacko: oh, well.


I'm cleaning the FP for the 1st time (gasp!) today....I knew nothing about FBs until I started reading the forum posts here in FPN.


  • FP = Ideal Exclusive 18k 750 nib M Black Lacquer
  • RB = Le Man 200 Rollerball Rhapsody in Mineral Green (with Fiber Tip)
