New Pen? Waterman Exception? 1


Waterman Exception Platinum Stripe Night & Day

Waterman Exception Platinum Stripe Night & Day

At the end of my MSc, I purchased my first fountain pen, a Waterman Harmonie.  Now that I have finished writing my DPhil, I have started to think about my next pen purchase … and there are a lot of pens out there that I would love to own but many of them are not ones that I think I would use everyday, which is one of my main criteria.

After doing some research and visiting Pens Plus, I think that I may have found the pen that I am looking for … a Waterman Exception.  I tried one with a fine nib and it was probably the best writing pen that I have ever held!  I would say that I have to agree with Glenn, because the nib flew across the paper and despite being oversized and square, it felt good in my hand.  Besides the nib and the way it felt, it is a good looking pen … not your normal round pen, the squared body raises it above most other fancy pens (aka, most Montblancs).

I have done some price comparison and the pens are cheaper in the USA … so, it looks like I will wait till I get back before I purchase … and who knows, I may find a pen that I like better!

    I have a ‘thing’ about pens. In primary school I had to learn to write using a proper fountain pen and I became sufficiently good at it to be regularly called upon to represent my ‘House’ in writing competitions. This pen’s lovely and how charming that Oxford has a shop solely devoted to pens!
