I used to use it and an early Waterman Persian 94 to write to my mother because she learned to read and write in a style of writing these pens were made for.
    The Hunt Imperial 101 (and yes I have a few that I use) is not a sloppy instrument. It has a high degree of precision. However, it does require skill to use. Perhaps what you are seeing here is that a Waterman Pink nib requires less skill. Don't blame the tools!

    I happened to buy three Vintage Watermans last week.
    All three pens are great and in good conditions.
    But one pen seems to be Odd as the pen seems a "Franken Pen". It was due to the strangely faded Hard rubber cap and the condition of the worn-out, skipping states of the nib. It write very very dry. Not a normal character from an Old waterman. It seems a nib badly ground by some one like me. So I had desided to change that Obelique italique nib into an old fine italique 14kt Ideal nib . It is temporarly until I fix this nib to reconstruct into a new broad Italique ( by redoing the tip meterial and getting regrounded by Fountaain Nib .com in Spain. I have already experience of there work.

    This pen is a lovely pen . I'll post the rest of the two Pens soon when I get the photos.

    Well hello again,
    I just happened to buy my first PINK NIB and I am sure this pen is the that is going to host it. I am very happy and excited.
    Can someone tell me what is the worth of a good pink nib, please?
    This nib I got is not very shiny but once it is cleaned and polished it will look better.
