First of all, bear with me, trying to make some changes to clean things up and to get a better format around here. I will get my links and feeds back up as soon as I find something I like. The content should still be OK, just ignore me if I change the curtains every now and then. Now back to the pens.
There are a ton of these floating around my office lately. Empty shells. I hate to throw them away, so they sit in a pile. The reason for it is... that I have a few really nice roller balls that I don't feel like ordering expensive refills for and I am pretty sure I will not like how they write once I get them in the pen anyway. There is no way I am the first to do this, but damn if the guts from a G-2's (and Sarasa's) don't fit right into some of my Watermans without any cutting or adjusting.. Yippee Skippy!
So, a once ignored Waterman shell gets the cheap treatment with a refill from my Sarasa .4. Suddenly I have a pen that looks expensive and writes like a dream and no one is the wiser. I love when a pen can go from a drawer to the desk and stays there.
So if you have a stale pen sitting around, grab your old pens and give it a try. I have a bunch of EARLY (and I mean early) ballpoints that I want to do the same this to, unfortunately, it's not just an even swap but I will keep you updated. See you tomorrow from sunny Florida.
