Please Help Identify This Waterman 18K 750 Made In Paris


Recommended Posts

Hello I purchased as a gift for my mother and I was hoping to find out more about it. The converter had blue ink and I was wondering if I should replace it with this one since It'll be using black. Also should I use a ultra sonic cleaner on a waterman or does the nib not come off??


Thank you so much for any help

Leave all parts in warm soapy water for a while then place all parts into the ultrasonic and give it a few runs.

Thanks, this is a slender pen almost like the executive line. The nib in mine looks a bit plainer than the preface I looked up. I can post some photos with my DSLR instead of phone if that'll help

The Amazon link picture of the converter is probably wrong. I doubt they would supply the old style one shown. The latest ones have a black plastic mouthpiece.

Awesome! You're a huge help, thanks so much. So I can put the whole disassembled pen into the ultrasonic cleaner? It just uses water in the clear I have, thanks I didn't even think about putting the case part in but it does look dirty inside. Will be her first fountain pen so hope it's one she'll enjoy

Yes, with the lacquer or plastic over brass pens you can put everything into the pot. Put a little washing up liquid in there along with it or if you can get it in your country, JPL seaclean.


These are great pens, just right for the ladies (smallish hands), with wonderfully smooth nibs.


This was my first Waterman, given to me back in 1986 and its still used daily...and with the original converter.

Hey! [stomps about, alternately kicking furniture and regarding his not notably slender hands, muttering the while]

Oh, good heavens. He's got a blog now, too.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
