Handwritten: Waterman’s Commando review

25 09 2009

Decided I’d handwrite this one. These old Waterman’s models from the 40’s are, in my opinion, highly under-rated. Granted, they don’t always look perfect (Waterman’s had some issues with the materials they used during the 40’s before more stable plastics were available), but their nibs often make great writers!

I love seeing handwritten stuff like this. Makes me wish I had more patience and better handwriting 🙂

Excellent find, I’ve been hoping to stumble into something with flex in my journeys but have yet to be so lucky.

If it’s too short for your hands, I know a good home for it. Thanks for the review!

Wow, can you write tiny! Looks like you’re getting the hang of flex and with a sweet little nib at that. Good for you.
