Pelikano P456 Fountain Pen green F nib, new with Box eBay 2/22/16 seller Einzelunternehmen $59.90 FS. Arrived 3/8/16.

3/8/16: This pen looks cheap. It feels cheap in the hand. The construction is below average. The cap is difficult to pull off. There’s a noticeable gap between the cap and the barrel when closed. The gold sticker in the photo was about to fall off. For $60, I’d expect much more. However, performance is excellent. This nib is extremely smooth. The ink flow is consistent. No hardstart. No skipping. The F is much thicker and wetter than the Japanesee F, but it’s not an M. It’s consistent with Western F.

3/8/16: FrankB: “Waterman cartridges are the same as the International standard cartridge, and might even be the model for that standard. Any pen that uses International cartridges, whether small or full sized, should be able to use a respective Waterman cartridge. I have a Waterman cartridge in a Pelikano Junior right now and it is puttering along without any difficulties that I can see” (“Waterman cartridge for pelikan,” FPN, 5/22/08).
