Customer Reviews

Not what I orderedI ordered a medium point fountain pen, but I received a fine point pen. I returned it. Additionally, this was not a true Waterman pen made in France--it was made in India under a license from Waterman. Not a deal-killer necessarily, but I do think that should have been clearly disclosed. 1Is it possible to love a pen? I took a risk in getting this pen via an Amazon Warehouse deal for the low price of $67.75. If I had bought the pen new here on Amazon, it would have cost about $85. And wow, the risk paid off well! The box had some very minor damage, but the pen is in wonderful shape and is perfect. It is a shiny black pen with chrome accents, which I greatly prefer over gold. I find gold to be tacky almost always. Since this pen comes with an ink cartridge but not a converter, I also purchased a Waterman converter when I bought the pen. I don't care for cartridges and prefer to buy bottles of ink because there's way more color and brand selection in bottles. Advice to fountain pen newbies: always read the product description and some of the associated questions regarding the products here on Amazon. I see that many are upset that the pen comes with no converter. Read before you buy, people! I own several Lamy Safaris, a Waterman Laureat from the 1990s, a few Chinese pens (Jinhao, Baoer, and Kaigelu), a Waterman Kultur, a TWSBI Eco, and a Pilot Metropolitan. My small fountain pen collection is growing, and I'd say that this Waterman Expert is hands down my best pen. It has a very smooth medium nib, and writes very well. It's not terribly heavy at 1.17 ounces (measured on my scale), but it has a nice heft to it, which I like. I can write with it posted or unposted with no problems. The pen has a very satisfying and clear snap of the cap when posted or closed. I can easily see this pen as my favorite daily writer. I love a good medium nib, and this Expert pleases me to no end. I love it! I have it inked now with Pelikan Royal Blue ink, and it writes wonderfully. I highly recommend this pen! 5Won't dry out after a day. Super nice!I was apprehensive about spending so much on a fountain pen but you truely get what you pay for. I have another pen that was around $40 which is nice too but this one writes beautifully. It doesn't "run out" of ink every other sentence like some I've used. It just keeps going. Even after days of not using it I can simply start writing with it because it doesn't dry up like cheaper ones. Could be the higher quality ink I bought though not sure. It's super easy to load ink into it. The cap stays on either end securely as well. It has a nice weight and balance to it. I really enjoy writing with it and started relearning cursive handwriting just for the fun of it. 5Ink spilled inside the fountain pen boxWaterman is a premium French brand. The fountain pen itself was received in good condition. However, for some unknown reasons the blue ink cartridge was pierced and the ink became scattered inside the Waterman box itself. I managed to clean the box but some dry ink residues are still prevailing. Not a good first time buying experience on Amazon.com particularly if buying delicate items like fountain pens to be gifted to someone else. The handling and packaging of this kind of product must be reviewed. 1An absolutely stunning pen!My favorite fountain pen was the Lamy Safari. Not anymore! My Waterman Expert is a thing of sheer beauty: so extremely well built with a business chic elegance that s really hard to beat in any price range. It s well balanced, and delightfully smooth. This is my new favorite by a mile.Evidently, there has been a small update to the cap design. The Expert used to have a metallic button inlay in the crown of the pen and I heard a few stories about this bit getting knocked out. Well, that metallic button is no more. The top of the cap now boasts an embossed Waterman W apparently molded into the pen. Nice fix!The only Waterman that might outclass the Expert is the Carene. At this price however, the Expert in my view is absolutely unbeatable! 5Waterman Expert Black Fine Nib: Classic Waterman QualityI've had it only a few weeks, and already this beautiful pen has joined the Waterman Carene on my desk as a beloved favorite that I reach for often. It's my fifth Waterman fountain pen, and it has everything I love about the others, namely the super smooth and lusciously wet nib. It may be a fine nib, but it definitely doesn't write like most fine nibs. The ink flow is generous without being a gusher, and always ready to go even if I don't write with it a few days. Never any hard starts or skips. No nib creep, either. Like their inks, the mid- and higher-end Waterman pens like this one are always well-behaved in their writing.The pen is on the hefty side, but never uncomfortable or heavy to the touch, although people used to lighter pens like, say, a TWSBI Eco may find it tiring at first. After a while, though, you don't notice the weight. Posted or not, it's always perfectly balanced in the hand, which helps more than anything with reducing hand fatigue.Because it has such classic, classy looks, this is the kind of pen you can proudly give someone for a promotion or graduation, and it can last a lifetime despite everyday usage, as long as you maintain it properly.This is the brand I recommend most often for people who don't know fountain pens well. I have never had a bad Waterman experience. I'm sure it's possible to have one, no company doesn't put out some boo-boos, but I have yet to get one from Waterman. As long as that continues, I will continue to assure everyone that the chances of a great writing experience with a Waterman is higher than with most companies, and you don't have to break the bank for it, either. Sure, this pen can be on the pricey side compared to some pens, but compared to other luxury brands? Watermans are downright bargains in comparison to several brands that don't necessarily write any better. 5A fine writing instrument... still in search of the perfect one though2/15/2018-First impressions: Pen was well packaged for delivery. It has nice heft to it and feels comfortable holding it. It was however delivered with an incompatible cartridge which is making me doubt the authenticity of the product. I will now need to order the cartridge to try out the pen and will update my review.2/28/2018-I ordered the refillable piston type cartridge for Waterman pens from eBay as Amazon did not have it in stock. I've been using the pen since a few hours now and have written about 2 pages worth.Pros:>The nib is appropriately sized for fine.>The pen feels well balanced when writing>So far I've not had any breaks in ink flow (unlike my Cross which has a flow latency as well as breaks in line)>There is a solid click when I place the cap on back.Cons:< The writing feels somewhat scratchy, not the smooth glide that you would expect from a pen of this quality.< I feel like I need to press on the paper when writing.Will share more feedback as I get more hours on it. 3Skipping on the upstrokeThis is a beautiful pen I love the weight and balance is perfect for me. The only problem was skipping. It was completely unacceptable, especially since the $6 cheapie I bought at the drugstore for curiosity sake writes better. After some experimentation with the ink and different papers it became apparent the the pen, (fine nib) simply didn't like the paper. I was trying it out on regular 20 lb. printer paper. When I used regular notebook paper or 80 lb. card stock it worked flawlessly. Granted this is not ideal, but the feel and beauty of the pen make it worth keeping. I am ordering an Hemisphere Blue in medium point to try out as my everyday pen. I'll let you know how that works out.------OK. I'm back a week later. The initial skipping issue seems to have resolved itself. I ordered the Expert again in medium nib. I love it but the medium nib is slightly wet for my personal writing style with the Waterman cartridge. I'm getting a converter and would appreciate and recommendations as to an ink that might be more suited to me. 4Great Pen, True Waterman qualityI ve owned this pen for almost five years now. I have never had an issue. The fine nib writes flawlessly and smoothly. It starts every single time.Currently I am inked up with Diamine Majestc Purple. The ink works beautifully in this pen.This is a great pen. No issues at all, in five years, no issues. Just simply take care of it. I flush it out once the converter runs out of ink. For those of you that are new to fountain pens, buy an ear syringe flush bulb. Fill it with water and flush the nib section out with it, after the water runs clear, draw some water into your converter a few times. Flush until clear. Using the bulb syringe will take minutes off of your flushing time. Research this technique on YouTube. There are some good videos out there on this subject. 5ot an expert review, but a customer review.Very surprised. I had purchased a Waterman pen at a local store here in Atlanta years ago that has held up well. I recently dropped it on it's nib and went looking for a replacement. After a lot of research I decided to order a new one from Amazon. I was really looking forward to it's arrival. Upon opening the box I was a little taken back. It did not have near the color as the internet. When I held it I was surprised it was so light. Upon closer examination I was dismayed to see it seemed to be made of a lot of just plastic parts. My next discovery was that the end of the pen had very rough edges to it which was so odd. I was under the impression that a pen made by a company such as Waterman would be essentially perfect. The rough edges just left a bad taste in my mouth. I tried to write with it the next day and would not consider it "smooth" in the least. I am not an expert but just had high expectations for a pen that cost this much. I decided that I am just not going to "settle" for this price point. The pen I purchased years ago is a solid pen. You can feel it's "heft" and it feels quite nice. This particular pen is so light and just feels like a plastic generic pen. Shame but not the end of the world. My hunt continues. 3
