Um, could you please show us a photo of what you received (unless the text of the inscription compromises your personal information or privacy)? I'm assuming that, in your case, the engraved words are in English, and in every example of engraving of pens (mostly from photos on retailers' web sites, but also all physical specimens over the years), the English inscriptions would start from where the section screws onto the barrel, and run along the cap or clip in the direction of the nib.
By the way, one of the three Pilot Capless raden models is designated 'water surface'. :-)

As always: 1.
Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN
is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment. 2.
I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong.
My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published. 3.
I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write
, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself
and see the results, I entreat you to do so.
