  1. I am relatively new to vintage Waterman's pens, having only two: A Taperite Crusader and a Corinth (still in need of full restoration...has a leaking crack in the sac nipple). My Taperite Crusader was a true lesson in patience. It took several weeks of on-again..off-again efforts with heat, ultrasonic, and physical tugging and pulling to finally get the section out so as to replace the sac. In terms of writing qualities, this particular Taperite Crusader is every bit as smooth and enjoyable as any of my Parker "51s," 45s, or any other pen I own, for that matter. My frustration with it is
  2. Hello, I like any advice or hint to change the colour band for another one. There is any difference between the ones that got just the colour band and the ones with the white bands too as happen with the Patrician crown caps tops some of them got to screw them and some others just pushing by friction. Thanks in advance for your answers.
  3. I have owned this particular Waterman's pen for some years, but for the life of me, I've not been able to identify the model. It has a screw-operated internal plunger for filling, the knurled part that you twist being hidden under a removable cover on the end of the pen. The text on the pen clearly says "Waterman's" and "60", and "made in England", but I don't think it is like a Ligne 60. The overall style is reminiscent of a Taperite. I'd be grateful for any help you can offer in identifying this great little pen.
  4. Hi FPN people! My grandfather had a book shop in Trysil, Norway, that recently closed for business.It was rather sad to see them close as it had been in our family for generations before him. When we cleaned out the shop we found many beautiful fountain fillers. Mostly unused (mint?). Some probably dating back from the 40s and 50s. Parker 51s amongst other. Theres a lot of different brands. Someone Ive never heard of. Its about 50 pens. There are some of the spare parts. Ill share some photos in hope of getting some information on the pens and maybe if theyre even worth selling. As theyre m

    Waterman's 52 Lever Fill Failure

    Hi, I bought a circa 1918 Waterman's Ideal 52 lever fill fountain pen two weeks ago. I had it filled with Waterman's ink at the store, took it home, and gleefully wrote with it until it ran dry today. I started to flush it out with distilled water and after about 20, or so, fills and flushes it just stopped filling when I released the lever to fill it one more time. No forewarning of impending failure, no breaking or snapping sound, nothing. Any idea what this could be, is a fix simple? I am somewhat handy, but if this is a repair beyond my means, can someone recommend a place that wo

    Some Help Identifing

    I am missing measures, but maybe someone could recognize the set and provide me some details if worth buying for 100$. also for the "golden" one fountain, any clue? thanks all AR
  7. Please help me identify this Waterman's Ideal. The silver hallmark carries the alphabets F.DW and a P other than the image symbols. And what is the stone on the top of the cap? ]

    Vintage Waterman Pen

    Found this grey striped Watermans lever fill fountain pen at a local flea mart for under $15. I am having a hard time figuring out the model of the pen. The pen says Watermans made in USA and has some Chinese/ Japanese characters below it. The clip also has the same characters and the clip shape is a similar shape to a Parker arrow one. The nib says 502 and other Chinese/ Japanese characters on it. (See Pictures) Any help on this pen or any information would be awesome. Thanks

    Watermans: A French Pen That Has Me Baffled!

    Hello, or perhaps I ought to say, 'Bonjour', This French Watermans pen, possibly a Ligne 60(?), has a filling system that I haven't come across, before. http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/2/5/3/2/1/0/webimg/827324423_tp.jpg Dipped in ink, the 18k nib writes beautifully, but I can't fathom out how to fill the 'cartridge'. The aluminium cartiridge has a hinged, brass tab at the end. Does the cartidge screw, or pull out? I'm reluctant to use force for fear of breaking something. http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/2/5/3/2/1/0/webimg/827324814_tp.jpg http://ti2.auctiva.com/web/supersize/click
  10. Toward the end of the year, I picked up a bunch of vintage pens, and have been restoring them. I'm interested in what anyone can tell me about these two Watermans. I've put new sacs in both, but so far have only inked the blue one. The lever mechanism is a type I've only seen in one other pen, instead of an internal spring bar, there is a pressure bar hanging on a pivot from the lever. The pressure bar on the blue one has enough corrosion on it that I thought of trying to get it off the lever and out of the pen, but I can't quite figure it out, and I don't want to break it. http://i614.p
  11. I saw a Waterman's 12 1/2 BCHR on Ebay with what appears to be a Toledo overlay (I have no affilication to seller, see link below). I have never seen any Toledo overlay pen in person and was wondering if this is a genuine example. http://www.ebay.com/itm/131289632586?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649 Item # 131289632586 Thanks, Jesse

    Vintage Waterman Inner Cap Leak

    Hello there, I have had a bit of bad luck lately with a couple of antiqe waterman's that I recently acquired. Both pens have started leaking inside the cap to the point that ink gets everywhere and even down onto the section. On close inspection I can see that the inner cap on both pens is distorted. So the inner cap is no longer round and doesn't seal properly and on both pens I can see a spot where the inner cap has pulled away from the wall of the outer pen cap. Both pens are BHR from the 1920s does anyone have any experience with this problem and ways of fixing it? Thanks. scribe16
  13. I purchased this Waterman's 52 Wood Grain with an unusual #2 "J" nib on Ebay a month or so ago. I may have paid more than I should have but having never run across such a nib, I could not resist. I've only seen one other reference to such a nib on the penboard.de and it indicated that it is a calligraphy nib. Can anyone confirm this or offer additional insight/knowledge about this nib? Regardless of price, it has been a lot fun to write with. Even under the control of my untrained hand, the nib produces excellent ink shading and puts out a really wet line. It is slightly flexible, however p

    Waterman's Patrician Section Loose

    I have a beautiful turquoise vintage Patrician in near-mint condition. I soaked it in cold water overnight to clean it before changing inks, and now the section has come loose from the body. The pen writes well and does not leak. What can I do to reattach the section?

    Ghost Sign In Stoke Newington

    I just wanted to share this lovely Ghost Sign with you all. http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2584/4082664308_35aef5c79c.jpg Walker Bros. Fount Pens by Ewan-M, on Flickr My partner went for a talk at St Bride Library ( http://www.stbride.org/ ) on ghost signs today, and showed me this sign which I thought was beautiful, and very appropriate for here.
  16. We sometimes strain to recognise fountain pen brands/models in films or TV series. But imagine if one of the characters actually identified it for the viewer. It happened! I was watching a black/white film from 1931, "Friends and Lovers", where Erich von Stroheim's character was blackmailing Adolphe Menjou's to the tune of five thousand pounds. Von Stroheim handed Menjou a bank cheque then proffered a pen with the words: "Extra stub, number seven - the kind you like." I could scarcely believe my ears. I'm guessing it was a Waterman's with a broad ("extra") stub. Due to the black/white er
  17. I have been collecting fountain pens for 4 or 5 years. In that time I have had well over 250 fountain pens pass through my hands. I first started with fountain pens when I was a boy. My father always used a fountain pen, a MB 149, this was his only pen and he carried it everywhere, still does. He has sent it in for service over the years but he always tells everyone who asks about his lifetime warranty and he has made use of it many times. When I was 18 or so my father bought me a MB 146. I used it sparingly but at the time I was not mature enough to appreciate it and didn't care for the mess
  18. Hello. I have a "made in England" Waterman's W5 pen. The section has a crack and I do not think I will be able to repair it. I am thinking of looking for a "for parts" pen to cannibalise for the section. But which other Waterman pens will have sections compatible with a W5? Thank you, Richard Phillips
  19. If anyone knows what the model of this pen is, its approximate value, when it was made, etc., I would greatly appreciate it. It is an English made Waterman's. It seems to me based upon the clip design and lever box that it was made sometime between 1937 and 1940 something but that is all I have. I love my Waterman Pens and this one is no exception. It has a very nice flexible nib. I've had it customized into a sharp fine Italic from the medium that it was originally. Before the customization the nib was not as nice as the earlier Waterman's that I am super fond of but now that it has bee
