Hi everyone!

 

Just want to say hi. I'm glad to have finally purchased my first "proper" fountain pen, a Waterman Hemisphere and will be using it lots. As of now I'm trying to look for an affordable vintage pen with good flex fine/e fine and if anyone has any for sale below $75 please contact me!

Welcome !

 

The Waterman Hemisphere is, indeed, proper. I bought several as gifts many years ago, but

did not acquire one of my own for a decade. One of the gift pens has returned to me, as a

cherished, heavily-used heirloom. It is a very good pen, with a conservative, business appearance..

 

I do not have a writing style that benefits from a flex nib. However, the Reform 1745 nib seems

to have some flex. I will leave it to my betters, whether it is a viable choice for your needs.

There are plenty of NOS Reform 1745 pens selling individually for 15 -20 dollars USD. The

company ceased operations in the 1970's. That qualifies as vintage, I think.

 

Write with joy.

welcome to the fpn! I would recommend looking on ebay if you want a affordable vintage flex pen. Just look for a listing with a writing sample to show the flexibility of the nib.

Welcome to a great place for fountain pens, paper, inks and etc.

 

Not sure if have ever used "stationery art.com" as a source of a limited selection of pens, but you might want to check it out.

 

Have fun and explore the whole site.
