Sorry folks, to post twice in sucession but I just realised that I forgot the 2 Taperites which I WILL get someone else to resac and sell on and I'm sure there are a couple more W2's somewhere that I must have a look for.

I've already answererd the poll, and I've even listed my Watermans, at least the ones I could remember. Well, the number changed today. I put in a bid for this pen on the 'Bay a couple of weeks ago, and the stars aligned: I won the auction. The pen came today -- in a padded envelope! -- from the U.K., and I restored it as quickly as I could. I'm lovin' the spectacular ripple!

The interesting thing about this pen, besides its being a rippled Waterman, is that it's a No. 51V, the smallest -- and skinniest -- Waterman self filler not to carry the 1/2V designation. To give you an idea of just how small this pen really is, here it is in scale with a No. 01852 and a No. 7.

I guess that I marked the survey wrong. If you count non-fountain pens, I actually have 5 Watermans, not 3.

They are:

1 Phileas FP, all-black with a medium nib which I ground to a broad italic
1 Expert II FP, blue marble, which was ground to a fine italic by the folks at Pendemonium
1 Hemisphere FP, red marble, which was just purchased from another FPNer.

Plus,

2 Phileas RBs, one black, one blue marble.

2 Audace (Enchanted Garden M, ethnic chic F)
1 Anastasia (Fine)
1 Hemisphere (silver, M)

Actually these are all the fountain pens I have so far.

I had a Phileas for all of six days. Then, it was wrenched from me by a beautiful girl...alright, fine, I confess, I was too glad to hand it off.

I gave it to my girlfriend because she mentioned that she liked the color of the Ottoman Rose that I used in it. Another convert! <cue evil laugh>
