Welcome home

Now what is hiding in there ? Hmmmm? Came from Germany and arrived in Japan some days ago - an early Christmas present??

Let's have a look (click on a photo to see it larger).

Aha, not only Pilot has its 100th anniversary this year.
Like a mirror
a wooden box
OK OK, I admit, I bought the 100th anniversary fountain pen of Waldmann (Germany) - I just couldn't resist.


Some details: the ink

The ink

And here it is: The pen! 

I wanted to make some photos as long as it is in pristine condition. Silver is extremely sensitive, use it once and it has micro-scratches.
The advantage of silver is that in summer it feels cool and in winter it feels warm.
This will be no collection pen - it will be used and soon it will have many scratches. Tant pis! A fountain pen is made for writing.

The Waldmann anniversary pen - I am now the owner of 66g silver.






A comparison with the LE's sibling - the Waldmann Manager (upper pen). Both are piston fillers.

"Where did the pens move to", I asked Waldmann. I was told that these pens reside now in Austria, Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, China, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Spain, and USA. My best regards to the 90+ other owners - 宜しくお願いします.




p.s. I had already reported earlier about this pen when I didn't know that some months later one would be mine. Link
