I present to you a Classic Sheaffer pen that tends to get less use in my collection. Not because I do not like it but because I don't want to break it. :) In the review I called it a vacuum filling pen and technically, it is. I think the proper term is pneumatic filler. The Sheaffer TD Statesman and my handwritten review.

The Sheaffer TD Statesman has that classic fountain pen shape. It is a nice looking pen even though the white dot on the cap reminds me of our notorious white tailed spider. Good to hear that your nib working skills have enabled you to now enjoy this pen.

I don't know if it is the ivory/cream paper or my monitor but that Absolute Brown ink looks more like a dark purple like Nightshade or Poussiere de Lune.

I love the look of the Stateman. I can understand why you would get comments from your co-workers - it's very impressive. Nice handwriting and the ink works well. I like using brown ink too, so I'll look into the Waterman.
