fountain pen 

Waterman fountain pen Waterman fountain pen converter One of my eccentricities is using a fountain pen for signing letters, cheques, cards and notes. I often use other types of pens for notes to myself. The Waterman people taught be a trick to keep the ink free flowing. Run warm (not hot) water through the nib, forcing it in where the ink cartridge fits and out the nib. Let it flow for a few minutes to remove any ink dried inside. I used a French Waterman expert Dune blue pen. It never seemed to flow freely and continuously. It uses either an ink cartridge or a refillable converter with a screw plunger to suck up the ink.

Lami Safari

Then I used a yellow plastic Lamy Safari which flows more smoothly. It too uses an ink cartridge refill converter. The Al-Star looks the same, but it made of aluminum. My Safari just disappeared recently.

L18F. Strong. Comes with blue ink cartridges. An inexpensive refillable cartridge is sold separately you can fill with any ink you choose. Fairly good ink flow. This is what I used myself until it mysteriously disappeared. Comes in black, blue, charcoal, dark lilac, pink, red, umber, yellow. There are also medium, fine and extra-fine nibs. The Al-Star model looks identical, but is made of aluminum. Made in Germany. Don’t confuse it with the similar looking rollerball model.
