Broken Waterman Phileas

I have always liked this pen with it's large nib so when this one broke I wanted to use the nib, but the nib has to be used with the correct feed so I could not just install it into one of my nib sleeves so I had to make a complete section around the feed and the nib. I made it to take a Cross refill as it has a tapered neck so I knew the seal would remain tight.

So here is the before and after pen

Great Chris!

Taking "restoration" to the next level!
I'm sure it's especially good when it's your own pen, with a favorite nib!

I really like that section & nib combo. Looks great! The Phileas has always had a special place in my heart because it was one of the first nice pens I ever bought. That and they are good looking pens, comfortable, have great nibs & never once let me down. I'm sure that pen is going to be as great if not better than the original.
