Hey all! I've been a very low key fountain pen fan since High School but this weekend I was at an estate sale and found a pile of old pens for $.25 each. Most were pharmaseutical freebees that I left there but I found these two gorgeous Waterman fountain pens! The two Watermans I found made me not look too in depth at this funny little fish pen that I assumed was another Waterman?

But today when I filled the new pens with my ink I realized that the funny little fish pen is not a Waterman but something not nearly as much fun. I hate the nib and want to look into getting it a new nib but I know nothing! Nothing!


There isn't a brand on the pen anywhere. The nib says Platinum Ultra Tipped Monter (or maybe Montes). Does anyone know what this is?

What kind of filling system is in the "fish" pen ?

Thank you all for the warm welcome!


To answer your question, the Fish pen has a bladder style converter and the more I futz with it I think the bladder is permanently attached to collector? I'm not positive - I didn't try and pull it off until it was already full of ink and so I didn't try too hard. But the black plastic part (with the metal and the hole that you push on) will come off of the bladder itself (which I've never seen before and I can't find a two part bladder ink converter online? But I might not be looking in the right places).

Hi Susan and welcome to FPN

 

Sounds fishy to me... not a Waterman I know.

 

Why not take some better pics from the nib and post it in the "Miscellaneous" subforum? I find this intriguing., especially the nib inscription. Probably not a very expensive pen, but interesting.
