It has nice weight and balance and writes smoothly on a variety paper.

Many fountain pen users regard the Phileas series as the best place to start with fountain pens, and I agree with that.

It belongs to the tribe of what I have heard called 'fat cigar-shaped' pens which I personally like.

I've been using Cross pens since I returned to my fountain pen roots several years ago but I decided to try this model because of its gorgeous design. There are aspects of it that I like better. The cartridges are longer, unlike the smaller Cross ones that run out much quicker and never seem to drain completely. It was also ready to go as soon as the cartridge was inserted unlike the Cross which seem to be stubborn to get started. It has a nice feel to it ergonomically and I nice feel to the nib on the paper.

I bought this pen recently and I really like the attractiveness of the pen. I believe this goes well for either a man or a woman. The pen writes very smoothly and offers you a quality pen at a reasonable price.

Since the Phileas came out a number of years ago, I've had 4 of them (3 fountain and 1 roller ball). These fountain pens have never let me down and have always been sound in quality. The first was the original red and blue series, the others were later blue and green marble models. They look nice and write very well. Many fountain pen users regard the Phileas series as the best place to start with fountain pens, and I agree with that. They're easy to clean, easy to use, and mine have always been ready to write for me. I whole heartedly suggest this pen as a fine addition to any pen collection, as well as for a nice fountain pen to use on a daily basis.

The Waterman Phileas fountain pen is a wonder. Smooth writing, well built, nice weight and balance, it's a heck of a pen for the price (always $40 or less if you shop around).

I have more expensive pens, older pens, but this is the pen I use more than half the time. At its price, I'm not afraid to carry it with me for fear of losing or damaging it. The cartridges are huge.

Great buy.

Verified Purchase
This pen was one of my first fountain pen purchases and I still like it very much. The elegant plastic casing comes in a blue marbled swirl with gold appointments. It belongs to the tribe of what I have heard called 'fat cigar-shaped' pens which I personally like. My steel pen nib came in a fine point which I also like but can be a little dry or 'scratchy,' particularly if you are trying to write quickly. Even after I haven't used the pen for a while, the ink flows smoothly when I begin to write which isn't true of all my fountain pens (some of them have to be coaxed to 'start' after they've been sitting for a while).

That said, I am still a newbie to fountain pens and don't understand all the ins and outs of fountain pen arcana. Sizing is one of those things. For instance, I have described this pen as fat and cigar-shaped which is how I've heard it described by others, and yet I am a woman with a small hand and the pen fits me perfectly so I wonder if a man with a large hand would also think it was a 'fat' or largish pen?

Bottom line: This is a very good, relatively inexpensive fountain pen which provides a fine meld of beauty (form) and function. I like my fountain pens to be pretty as well as write well and this pen fulfills both those goals.
