Black and Gold Package Type: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase. I received this pen for Christmas. I hate it when people write the fresh out of the package reviews. I have written with it for about two months, and here is what I have decided about this pen. There are some one star reviews that should not be given to this pen. There were people that said the pen skipped and caught on the paper a lot. I wanted to figure out how they could even have this happen to them. My pen looks amazing, is by far one of the easiest to use fountain pens I have written with, and is so smooth.
When I say that the pen writes well, I mean that it is not picky. I have written with fountain pens that require a finite angle fire it to write. However, when I picked up this pen, I did not miss a stroke. Normally, you have more trouble when you get a new fountain pen; you have to learn the optimal angle, and it can take at least an after noon to find the sweet spot. The people that put the one star reviews for it catching boggled me.
I can rest my pen on my hand and drag it, with only the pen's weight holding it down, and it still writes. I noticed that when I showed this pen to one of my friends, however, they wrote with it upside down. They got extremely frustrated and thought it was terrible. When you write upside down with this pen metal part of the nib facing down it skips and catches on the paper. A lot of fountain pens can write upside down, but this one cannot.
As long as you write with the metal side up, this pen is very smooth and does not catch our skip. So, at least some of the various one and two star reviews are probably people writing up side down with this pen. I love this pen. I use or every day for my notes at school, and it is great. This pen does not come with an adapter, and the description does not mention that it does. I recommend getting one for this pen.
The adapter had a sufficient amount of ink capacity, is easy to use, and will save you money in the long run. So, overall this is a great pen.

It writes smoothly, does not skip a lot, is easy to write with, and is very catching and pleasant to the eye. I hope this review can help someone choose a pen. Deluxe White Package Type: There is much to love about this pen, unless you are looking for an actual fine line. And this is a big but if you're concerned about writing: At best, it's a medium.

For someone like me, with small, tight handwriting, this is a deal breaker. This is really disappointing because I write letters and journal frequently.

I absolutely love how this pen looks and feels, and I was so excited about receiving a Waterman, my first real "next level" pen. It was a Christmas gift from my parents, which only adds to the disappointment of not being able to use it much except, perhaps, for hand lettering envelopes on occasion. I don't want to sell it because of the things I like about it and will see if I can't find a nib meister to work some magic on the nib, but I do feel as though people looking for a fine line should be aware that's not what you're getting.
So now I have a beautiful pen made from higher-quality materials that I will use less than my cheaper pens one of which is plastic because it's not, actually, a Fine nib. Holland abandoned his company after only six weeks; Waterman stepped in and took over, fitting the pens with a simplified feed of his own design.
Despite later company literature that depicts Lewis E. Waterman as a golden-hearted innocent, all evidence indicates that he was a tough, savvy, and innovative businessman. In the L. Waterman company developed the "spoon Feed" system which prevented overflow of ink, which also led to the company receiving the gold medal of excellence at the "Exposition Universelle" in Paris in Nonetheless, it was after L. Waterman's death in that the company took off. Under the leadership of Waterman's nephew, Frank D. Waterman, the Waterman Pen Company expanded aggressively worldwide.

I don't know exactly when this spiral bound book was printed, but I believe it was printed during the mid 's. According to this book the spoon feed was introduced in One of the first pages in this book is a rather crude graph that answers several questions pertaining to the years of production of certain styles, as well as the beginning of the Ideal "Globe" logo which, according to this book, was This book has been out of print for some time now, but if you can find a used copy on ebay or Amazon you'll be glad you did!
