Just bought my first Waterman pen, got it much reduced price as it was just the pen, no cartridge, no converter & no box.
I have been used to Safari's, and Frontier's, and it certainly has a different feel to it.
It's heavier, for comparison, Safari=16g , Frontier=22g and Waterman Hemisphere=26g.
I have 'M' nibs in all pens, and I would say the Safari writes 'thinnest', and Frontier and Hemisphere are about the same.
In my judgement, the pen is slightly top heavy with the cap posted, but not a real problem.
It writes very smoothly with this nib, starts straight away, really hard to fault.
I did give it a flush through, several times, with 1 part ammonia, 3 water, then filled with the only bottled ink I have, Sheaffer Skrip black.
It's a pleasure to write with, the extra weight seems to add something, and have attached a photo of the 'output'.
