View Full Version : Cheap Waterman (Da Vinci) leaking?

Hey FP Geeks,

I've got a Waterman with a red Da Vinci print... Cartridges fit, but don't sit snugly. I've also noticed that even just from carrying it in my purse, I end up with a lot of ink in the cap. Maybe this is a general FP question -- but how does this happen?

I know the pen is cheap, but I like the way it writes (slightly finer than my Pilot Metro) and I'm not too worried about losing it. Anything I can do to stop the excess ink? (For now I've stuffed a small piece of tissue in the barrel so the cartridge sits more snugly)
