Ruby Wedding Anniversary.

Ruby Wedding Anniversary today. 40 years married. 48 years together. My wife bought me a wonderful fountain pen for a gift. Not having much knowledge concerning fountain pens, her approach was to type into the internet ‘Ruby coloured vintage fountain pen’. Then….found this one for sale on Etsy. 

Here, alongside my pocket choices of the Kaweko Brass Sport and Montblanc to write with this Anniversary holiday week is the gift that is the Waterman Expert 2 ‘Dune’ pen. As yet I cannot test it out due to having no ink cartridge. One is inherent and attached..but empty. I will probably purchase both the Waterman specific cartridges and also the ink converter off the internet and do this as soon as possible. Itching to test it out. I have not owned a Waterman pen before, never written with one ever, so need to look up information, use it for a few days and follow up with how it performs after also looking into all the specifics. Then write a fuller content of everything found.

This is a quick blog as we are away for this week. Have just dropped in with this quick update. Thank you.

    1. Aha! You know me Danny. Bit of a novice. But I’ll say that the cartridge goes inside an internal separate attached brass tube. Fits snuggly. The tapping on the pen’s barrel certainly feels like metal. And heavy too. Still trying to date the pen. Maybe 1990s hopefully. Been out and about so little time to get my teeth into the searching. Cheers Danny.

      1. That is an Expert II, Expert I is plastic and it (Expert I) has the 3-sided beveled nib. This went into production in the late 90s, early 2000s. It is a wonderful pen, you should get years of enjoyment from it.

    1. They are very therapeutic to write with. Many enthusiasts here as bloggers. When I was a nurse they really helped with the enormity of end of day writing in notes. The flow is more gentle than a ballpoint. Bet you get addicted! Cheers and good fortune with the fountain pen adventure. Look forward to reading a future blog from your findings.
