Waterman Preface Gold Plated, Preface 18K Medium, inked with Montblanc Alfred Hitchcock Red

The tackiest looking pen I have ever owned. I hated the look of this gold plated Waterman Preface so much that I actually considered not buying it - for a compulsive, completist collector  like myself that is saying something. I have no problem with the sterling silver version but this is just too much - yuk.

I really need to clean my nibs better than this. A medium, it writes, enough said.

The Alfred Hitchcock comes in the little cubed Montblanc bottle - I find them so cute.

This red ink entered my collection in August 2012 and has been used four times since then. I hold this ink up as one of the better blood reds in my collection. I happily used this ink all day at the office today but do get a few looks and comments while marked up a co-worker's document with it.
