  1. So how can one tell if a pen is a Dauntless or a Stalwart?

    Waterman Ideal/stalwart/starlet Question

    Hi everyone, I have been lurking on the FPN for a little while and apart from an introduction topic, this is my first post. Fairly recently my love for fountian pens was re-kindled so I started looking around on ebay and local 2nd hand sites for some interesting buys. I bought some new pens and I bought some vintage pens. Two of the pens I bought were Waterman's and both were purchased for 15€. I believe that one of the two is a Stalwart/Starlet-version (the tortoise one). I can't really identify the other. I'll just call it a Waterman's Ideal Made in England. The Ideal was in working order and had just received a new sac. The Starlet needed a new one so I bought some sacs and shellac and repaired it. I exchanged the nibs (might change them back) because I really like the fine nib of the Starlet but the Ideal was the one in working order. The nib of the Ideal (now on the Starlet) is nice too but skips sometimes and it is broader. All in all, I'm very happy with these purchases. Now, for my question: the Starlet is missing the clip from the cap as you can see on the pictures below. Is there any way to get such a clip somewhere to repair it? Are there perpaps some online shops that sell these kind of parts? Also, if someone can help me identify the model of the black pen more correctly, I would appreciate that.

    Waterman Stalwart Feed Question

    Does anyone know where I can get a feed for a Waterman Stalwart? I'm not sure what part number to look for, dimensions, etc. I'm a complete noob when it comes to fountain pen repair, so any advice is appreciated!
  4. Howdy, So I'm pretty new to Waterman pens (I'm new to the hobby as well, but I have done -some- research on P51's and mid 40-60's Sheaffer pens, specifically because I wanted an Imperial IV TD, which I got and love!) and was looking around for a decent, yet cheap, vintage flex. I saw a few sites out there selling refurbished flex pens and used that as a guide on what to look for on ebay and I came across this: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Vintage-Waterman-Stalwart-Fountain-Pen-Ideal-14K-Canada-2-Nib-Vg-Cond-Works-/281257980826?ssPageName=ADME:B:EOIBSA:AU:3160 Fully working, #2 canadian nibbed Stalwart. In the small amount of research I've done, I've heard a few times that #2 ideal Canadian nibs are good for flex, but then I've had other people say that they're at best semi-flex. Also, the stalwart's don't seem to be that common (the search on this forum came up with only a few threads and very few of those were people who actually owned one). Would you say this pen was worth a $50 or so price tag including postage? Did I pay around average or did I get a deal? I don't mind if I got it for the average-ish price (I like the look of it and it seems that it should flex -enough- for what I need it for). Is there anything I should know about these as a first time owner of a waterman pen from the 40's (for ex - certain inks to avoid etc). From what I understand, they have an older feed type that can struggle to keep up, so I would imagine that a wetter ink would be appropriate, no? Cheers in advance - Josh
