I'm very happy today as I didnt expect to receive this old style pen complete with its correct box and paper. IMHO, it is not easy to find this pen in pristine condition. This pen can now be a companion to its other M900 brother.

Here goes the photos..

Due to Mauricio's improved definition of Super-flex, I no longer use the term Easy Full Flex.

 

Semi-flex is an “almost” flex; not a ‘flex’ nib. It is great for regular writing with a touch of flair. It can give you some fancy; but it is not made for real fancy writing. For bit more of that get a 'flexi'/maxi-semi-flex. Both spread tines 3X.  Those are not "Flex" nibs. 

 

Odd, how many who should know better, compares Japanese F (which equals EF), with Western F, with out a second thought, but do not compare Japanese B with Western B.

 

Wider than Normal does not exist. Wider than Japanese does. Every company has it's very own standard + slop/tolerance. Developed from the users of it's pens only; not the users of other companies pens. The size you grind a nib to, is your standard only. Paper and ink matter to nib width. Thank god for 1/2 sizes or it would be boring.

Awesome looking pen. I really like the old style M800 with the gold/ silver disc at the bottom and the gold/ silver logo on top. Together with the toledo shaft its a total win. Hope to have a toledo myself one day.

When did they stop putting the silver "button" on the barrel end?

I think after 1998, which was after Pelikan changed their gold disc to silk screen cap top, thus removing the end barrel gold/silver disc. However, there were some LE pens post 1998 would still retain the disc cap/barrel ie. Icarus, Expo pens, Gaudi etc

Is your engraving on cap band W.Germany or Germany?
I was once told by somebody well regarded that there are two kinds on the 910s, made before and after unification, of which truth I also want to know of if possible.
Very nice pen :thumbup:
I agree old style is far better.

The M910 I have is with "Germany" engravement. While the M900 is with "W. Germany". Can be seen one of the photos..

Not sure whether the M910 came with "W. Germany" engravement, but I have seen M710 (Old style) with "W.Germany" engravement at the bottom of the turning knob.

Yes, I have two M800s (Blue O'Blue and an M810) and two Toledo M910s. Physically they have the same dimensions, but the weights are very different. The Toledos are much heavier.

Thank you. Yes, it must be much heavier due to the metal content. :)

The original M910 Limited Production was marked "W-GERMANY", and was packaged in a small wooden "writing desk."

It was also only released with a medium nib, if you want to store it as a collection piece.

 

There are also a few R910 rollerballs out there too. These however are marked "GERMANY"  :)

 

Enjoy and use this fabulous pen!

My goal is to collect old style M900/M910, but I have to consider the price.For me , the most important thing is pen not a box. I am continue to search it.
