5.0 out of 5 stars Very classy fountain pen.

The ink flow is not as good as my other Waterman fountain pen. Maybe I am still not used to it but the ink is oftern intermittent although the nkip, appears on examination to be perfect.

I will persevere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very classy fountain pen., 13 Jun 2012
This review is from: Waterman Carene Amber Lacquer Gold Trim Medium Nib Fountain Pen - Gift Boxed (Office Product)
This Waterman Carene Amber Laque fountain pen was purchased for me as a birthday gift by my partner. I looked at a variety of makes and styles before making my choice of pen. I wanted a beautiful pen which, with care, would last a very long time into the future and chose this one because of it's smooth laquered finish and traditional style & shape. Aesthetically, it is a lovely classy pen and totally meets my expectations. It comes with a blue cartridge so it can be used straight away and includes a pen converter so it can also be used with bottled ink. There are some lovely ink colours available and I'd like to try using it with the Waterman brown ink.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth, 3 Jan 2011
This review is from: Waterman Carene Amber Lacquer Gold Trim Medium Nib Fountain Pen - Gift Boxed (Office Product)
This pen is a joy to write with. It feels a well made quality product. It is very comfortable to hold and as a left-hander very pleasing. It writes so smoothly I forget it is a fountain pen. I love it and would recommend it to anyone.

I bought this as a treat for myself, and for the price I paid, it was an absolute bargain. Every author needs at least one great pen, and I’d recommend this to anyone who loves writing. Shame it doesn’t come with an editing facility …

5.0 out of 5 stars A joy to write with., 16 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Waterman Carene Amber Lacquer Gold Trim Medium Nib Fountain Pen - Gift Boxed (Office Product)
I'm absolutely delighted with my Waterman Carène. Perfectly balanced, gorgeous inset solid gold nib and the marine amber lacquer is sumptuously executed. I find the pen writes extremely smoothly with almost no feedback from the paper and lays down a generous wet line. I am using Diamine Burnt Sienna ink which matches the pen perfectly for colour and provides excellent flow.

This review is from: Waterman Carene Amber Lacquer Gold Trim Medium Nib Fountain Pen - Gift Boxed (Office Product)
A fabulous pen, beautiful to look at as well to write with, although I did end up buying a fine nib. I found the medium nib a bit thick.

This was a birthday present and it arrived exactly on time.

The pen is looks beautiful, is well crafted and comfortable to write. The ink flow could be better; this may improve as I use the pen more and find the best way to hold the pen!
