Tag Archives: Waterman Hemisphere


I lost my pen today. This makes me a bitter, bitter man indeed. I’ve never really talked about my pens on this blog before, but I’m a huge pen snob. The pen I just lost was a Waterman Hemisphere in stainless steel, ball point. It was the best ball point pen I’ve ever owned. Super smooth, and reliable under almost all conditions. It was everything you’d want from a ball point pen.

Now I have to admit that I can’t really justify the expense of getting another precision writing instrument. The Hemisphere was a bit of an indulgence, and a Christmas present for myself (yes, I owned it less than half a year). Having come to that conclusion, I probably need to buy a pack of disposables.

What do you all recommend for pens? Bics? Office Max? Uniball? Or maybe it doesn’t even matter. I’ll just find a blunt nail and dip it in ink.
