In the last 2 months I've picked up 2 Harley Davidson Waterman pens on ebay. They are my daily carry pens for work now as they are metal and fit my hand well. [I have large paws]. Both were under $20 and included warranties and converters. The first is chromed and sports a medium nib. This one writes at any angle loves Quink. The second is blue/gray in color, has a medium nib and writes nicely with Quink, but is a little fussy about the angle it is held at while writing. I used my old Sheaffer Junior as the comparison, also loaded with Quink, it sports a fine point and is an effortless writer, this one is my "Sunday go to meeting" pen.
Neither writes as smoothly as the Sheaffer,but it has been around for 60+ years. However, they areboth very comfortable for someone with larger hands. My Junior is a bit delicate feeling to me,but is my favorite pen. As I make my living in Law Enforcement, ruggedness or throw-away cost are important. Both the Waterman's are well built enough to stand up to the abuse that can happen to stuff.

Please forgive this relative newcomer any gaffesI committed in this review.
