I ordered a stub and received a fine oblique! For anyone who knows anything about nibs, that won’t work! I am based in Hong Kong to add to my joys! Rajesh
Not sure there is much point in commenting on an inactive offering, but I received this pen today and loaded it with some Kon-peki and I love it. The pen is more attractive than is conveyed in photographs, and pardon the cliche, but the whole is more than the sum of the parts. It is a truly beautiful pen in ways that really become apparent when it is in your hand. It is also, and this is the most important thing always, a wonderful writer. I actually had some concerns after I read RoamingDutchman's comments, because I like a very fine line, as I generally use Japanese F or EF. Waterman's EF is on the absolute edge of what I can use, but it is within the margin, and I am enjoying using it very much. I'm no expert, but to me, it's about equal to a Lamy EF, and just a tiny bit wider than a Pilot or Sailor F. Bottom line, it's just fine for me. Also, the construction of the pen merits comment. This is a quality pen: everything fits, the furnishings are top notch, and the integrated nib in particular is very pleasing. I have another Waterman that is over thirty years old and still performs perfectly; I expect this pen has a good chance to do the same, which means someone other than myself will be enjoying this pen some day. Regarding the price, it was good for me simply because I could only find a few vendors who had the EF, and their prices were significantly higher. If you want a M or F, it's less of a contrast. Bottom line: I'm happy; this is a beautiful and well-made pen.
Amber trim please!
This will hopefully be a good addition to my collection. I got the EF Silver on black because all my other pens are gold/black and I wanted something different. Looking forward to testing it out.
If you like normally to write in 'fine' get the EF nib (which you cannot get on amazon!) is recommended. I find the 'fine' for this pen to more write like a 'medium'. So do your research before selecting your nib size.
Not sure where you are finding this pen for 160.00 yigitemre. I see it for 219.00 on Amazon. Furthermore I searched a lot on Ebay and for 189.99 with free shipping, this appears to be a pretty good deal. Not to mention this pen is stunning! Glad I got in on the drop and can't wait to receive it! Can't remember the last time I was this excited to receive a fountain pen ;)

If you mention pen price as 219 with shipping cost, I cant see it unfortunately. Maybe price difference comes from that but as I mentioned list price is still ~160$.

I see what you are saying. The black/silver pen is 161.00 I wanted the one that is black and gold. If you go to the link you sent me and click on the gold/black one you will see it's $237.00 now.

Sounds like the mixed up the Edson and the Carène.
