Several months ago, I found a new old stock Waterman Patrician -- one of the finest, rarest and most desirable vintage pens -- in perfect condition at a local antique shop. I put off buying it. Yesterday I went back to take a look, and at some point, some moron tried working the lever and bent the damned thing so now it has a crease across the axle. I was so furious I was fit to be tied. I think if I knew who did that, he'd need to be fed through a tube the rest of his life.
