Pre-Owned Pens: Waterman Phileas

Pre-Owned Pens: 3134 Waterman Phileas
Era: 1980-present
Price: $29.99
Waterman scored a huge hit with the Waterman Phileas in the 1990s. It was affordable, reliable and durable. Our latest offering is an earlier edition with a rust-colored vein running through a deep blue that some people refer to as purple. It is right on that line. It has some wear, particularly where the nib inserts into the section. (Click the headline to see it.) It uses standard international cartridges and Waterman converters, but it comes with neither. The two-tone steel nib writes a very nice, smooth medium line. 13.5cm capped.
