Waterman-Carene-Amber-Shimmer-Fine-Point-Fountain-PenI’ve tried quite a few Waterman models, about 6-7 different models. Phileas, Expert, etc. yet this is the one I keep coming back too. Some nibs are a bit fickle when starting, slow ink, rough feel, doesn’t like to make loops when you write cursive.

This one is very smooth, and smooth every time. I have small hands and I really like the shape, it’s very comfortable for me. I don’t like to have to keep messing with how I hold the pen to get a better grip. This is an excellent pen. I highly recommend this pen, especially if your hands are on the smaller side. That’s not to say it’s not comfortable for larger hands but if you do have smaller hands it’s a great pen.
