Waterman 0552 1/2 Pansy Overlay with R & K Morinda!

This particular ink was amazing with the flex nib, the red ink was just great! The ink showed somewhat of a variant with the flex nib on the Waterman.

Waterman 42 1/2V Love!

I just love Waterman's, and the small safety pens called baby's and v pens can impress even the most doubtful pen enthusiast. These pen's have flex, and maybe not enough!

Unknown Semi-Flex Swan Metal Fountain Pen

I took a shot in the dark a few month ago and bought a vintage pen lot from Germany. Unknown to me at the time, I had many early Soennecken's and this amazing Swan which I thought may of been silver. I don't think its silver, as it has no hallmarks and doesn't have that certain 'glean' like my other sterling silver pens. No numbers on the bottom or anything, just a name on the name plate. Any help would be appreciated.

I've listened to FPGeek's podcast since the start, and I just cant stop now! I recently started talking to Eric about fountain pens, and what an enthusiastic, knowledgeable man on pens. I even sent him a letter, and I got this :)

Waterman #12 with Jeweler Bands with Rohrer & Klingner Morinda

I've always loved what I read about Rohrer & Klingner inks, especially the ones that have phenomenal shading properties. When I was given the opportunity to try out one of the inks, I jumped on it. I love the shade of red that Morinda offered, so I was more than happy to try it out in a flexible Waterman. Below I was trying to capture some of the shading properties of the ink, and I thought they were a great combination together.

Just look at how much the R&K Morinda loved the Waterman!
