Wonderful, wonderful! 

 

I have inked up three Phileases a few days ago, and lo, they are still writing.  Not drying out. 

 

I do like that the Phileas has the feel of a more expensive pen (MB 146 resin piston).

£35 and IMHO the going rate (£30 to £40) for this model in excellent to mint condition. 

 

I asked no questions and requested no additional pictures, just took the BIN. The cap may not even have a clip  :huh:

 

The seller has posted it so we shall soon know.

 

It has arrived and the box was poorly packed. The box is shot or was so before the poor packaging applied. I am not bothered as I have spares.

 

The pen is a mint Amazon Green. The nib is Broad (L). It came with a Waterman converter which contained some awful red ink which has now been removed by ultrasonic cleaning.
