George Rimakis and Daniel Kirchheimer did a bunch of painstaking research to dig up the true history of the Waterman Pen Company. Daniel Kirchheimer posted a thread on FPGeeks forum linking to their research. I decided to post a link to it here.

Mr. Kirchheimer’s initial post:

“George Rimakis and I have written a monograph that reveals some astonishing information about the formative days of the Waterman company. We invite readers here to have a look and to discuss the paper.

Blotting Out the Truth

    1. I enjoy the few Waterman pens I have. Some of them are a bit kitschy like the Harley versions but they have excellent nibs. I recently was able to purchase a vintage Waterman’s Emblem and it is a great pen.
