Waterman Laureat: Is This Normal?

Recommended Posts

Hi all:

 

My old Waterman Laureat writes very smoothly, I guess it would be called a wet nib, for which I'm grateful... However every time I open it there's a lot of ink on the nib, some on the section and some even inside the cap. I switched from J. Herbin Vert Empire to Iroshizuku Yama Guri to see if it was somehow ink related, but it's the same. I had Pelikan Königsblau for some time before that, and it was worse. I left it at home on purpose so there would be no weather or transportation issues. This is what it looks like (please excuse the phone photo). So is it leaking? Can it be fixed?

To answer my own question... Doesn't seem to be normal, I cleaned the pen and was able to take out the nib and feeder... Put it back together and there is still some ink but much less than before. I'm going to have to carry tissue paper as the section has a little ink when I open it.... Could it be that the cap creates a vacuum and sucks ink out??

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
