Thank you for your kind words Gistar. I'm not sure what you mean my handling, if you can explain I'd be happy to help. From the support point of view, if you mean, after-sale support then I have had pleasant experience with Newellco team in the past. I have even written about it here


I like big pens and I do not mind heavy pens, but when holding it I was not sure about it’s balance and how well the square body would sit in my hand during a long writing session. But your review has persuaded me that it is worth to get it.

Just a heads up for everyone who want to get this pen brand new. Waterman stopped production so after current stocks run out it's either the second hand market or eBay new-old stock (I'm sure they'll appear  after a few years)

I'm glad that the review helped. Unless you try it yourself, it is difficult to decide if this pen will work for long writing sessions, it is indeed a relatively heavy pen. Relative to most resin based pens that is, but compares to other metal barreled pens out there like the CDA leman, or the Lamy 2000 Steel, Cross Peerless, PD Solid etc.

I love this pen.

 

Such a classic in any finish; gold, platinum or black.

 

Thank you for the review and sharing.
