    Edson, Inky Fingers

    Whenever I uncap my Edson (M), I find ink on the section. I've learned to grip farther away from the nib, but I still get ink on my fingers. I think what's happening is the ink from the nib creep transfers to the cap which then transfers to the grip section when I cap/uncap the pen. Anyone know how I can prevent this? Thanks in advance.
  2. Sorry to those of you who have been around here a while and have read an abundance of posts. The apology is because I have not been able to find a post about these two pens, the Waterman Edson and the Visconti 14k Skeleton Demo, pitted against each other. Thus, the reason for this post is to engage in friendly discussion about which is better to purchase. Below are some details about each of them to help with the decision. Both pens are the same price (within about 20 dollars of each other) from my particular retailer. Additionally, I am a loyal customer and buy most of my pens from him. This has allowed me to work out deals with him and the winner of these two pens will be a part of a deal. The pens are roughly $450 US, or lower if the negotiating goes more my way. The Visconti comes with a M nib and the Edson is a B nib which I would send in to exchange with a M unless someone delivers a solid argument. The Visconti has caught my eye because of the demonstrator barrel and the unique skeletal design. I also do not own a Visconti pen, but I do have one piston-filled pen, which is a Stipula Ventidue 22 (although it has problems as they all do). The Edson caught my eye, because that is just what that pen does to people. I also own a Waterman Phileas and a Waterman Carene, which are both personal favorites. The Carene is a sentimental gift from my father and also is one of my two favorite pens, currently tied with a Cross Verve. The Edson is definitely a pen I want to own at some point, just not entirely sure about right now. The next is some information about me personally to help with the discussion. I have personally written with steel, titanium, and 18k gold nibs. I think the titanium flex is unique, but I write so softly that flex or spring rarely make a difference to me (with the exception of the Titanium because that flex is extreme even for soft writers). My gold nibs are definitely my favorite with the exception of the Phileas and I prefer a moderately heavy pen. The Cross Verve is an exceptional writer that I love and keep in constant rotation with my Carene. These are my two favorites with the Phileas and my Schaeffar Legacy Heritage as the runners up. When the Carene and Verve are being cleaned, these two step in. The fifth in the running, which is used occasionally for light writing, is my Cross C Series. This pen would be number 3, but it has some pretty severe ink starvation problems that I haven't had a chance to send out to get fixed, yet. I hope all this information is helpful and that you all produce friendly, helpful, and informative comments. Thanks in advance, Tim P.S. Both are NOS
  3. I have a Waterman Edson fountain pen with a broad nib. It is a beautiful pen. Unfortunately, I discovered that the nib "creeps", when the pen is held vertically. The leakage can be substantial if I ink the pen and hold it in a vertical position; ink would slowly gather at the tip of the nib, and even form a tiny droplet and fall from it. If I slightly tilt the pen to its normal writing position, this problem is alleviated. However, the nib would then become excessively wet when inked up freshly and used for normal writing. Also, I noted that when I use a converter to ink up the pen, as I turn the knob of the converter, the ink is not being drawn up as it is supposed to. Thus, I cannot fill the ink up to the converter's full capacity, but can only fill to less than one third of the converter's visible capacity. In addition, neither carriage nor the regular Waterman converter from my Carene would fit into this pen. They would not stay in position snugly, and would invariably fall off once pressure from hand is removed. After some research and thanks to the patient help from another FPN member in Canada, I think I may have pin-pointed the problem that the lance in the nib section is broken (it's not broken entirely, but is damaged laterally, either because of corrosion or force). In any event, it is currently not usable. Now there seem to be two solutions to this problem. The first is to find the right part and fix it myself or have some expert fix it. The second is to purchase a new nib section for replacement, and throw this one away (which seems a waste as the rest of the nib section seems alright). Any suggestions for either solutions, or alternative solutions that I have not thought of are greatly appreciated. I really would like to start using this pen instead of just putting it away to gather dust. Such a pity that right now I can only look at it lying on the table, not fulfilling its purpose as a true Edson.
  4. Dear all, I'm new to the forum. This is my first post. I hope I'm posting this inquiry to the correct board. I have a Waterman Edson fountain pen with a broad nib. It is in perfect condition and is rarely used. Unfortunately, I discovered that the nib "creeps", when the pen is held vertically. The leakage can be substantial if I ink the pen and hold it in a vertical position; ink would slowly gather at the tip of the nib, and even form a tiny drop and fall from it. If I slightly tilt the pen to its normal writing position, this problem is alleviated. However, the nib would then become excessively wet when inked up freshly and used for normal writing. Also, I noted that when I use a converter to ink up the pen, as I turn the knob of the converter, the ink is not being drawn up as it is supposed to. Thus, I cannot fill the ink up to the converter's full capacity, but can only fill to less than one third of the converter's visible capacity. I'm not sure if any of you have encountered this problem before with a Waterman Edson and if there is an easy fix. Or would you recommend that I send it back to Waterman for repair or nib exchange. Although the warranty card says "lifetime warranty", this is an old pen (looks brand new), and I'm not sure if Waterman would honor that. I've read online that years ago Waterman changed its policy and annulled the lifetime warranty on its pens. Any input would be appreciated, as I really would like to start using this pen instead of just putting it away in my collection. Thank you.

    Broken Nib Feed On An Edson

    I have an emerald Edson, and the little nipple that goes into the converter broke off. I have sent pics to Waterman, and they responded they only have extra fine and bold nibs available . Would I need a whole new nib?!! That would be heartbreaking, this medium nib has 20+ years of use and I couldn't imagine changing it. It is just a tiny plastic piece that needs to be replaced. Those with knowledge about repairs please give me some good news!
