Description The Waterman Hemisphere Essentials fountain pen in Blue features a rich blue lacquer barrel with a matte finish, brushed stainless steel cap, and is accented by a palladium clip and trim. The slightly matte finish feels comfortable and helps prevent slipping in your hand while writing. The snap-cap closes securely with a soft click, and does post on the end of the barrel while writing. The steel nib writes smoothly, and the Waterman Hemisphere fountain pen comes with a standard international cartridge to get you started. The Waterman converter for use with bottled ink, is available separately.
