For the money, these Pelikans are some of the best pens going. You couldn't pay me to give them up. I know some balk at the cost but to me it's money very well spent, I can't say enough good things about them.

I'm using my Parker Sonnet F.

I have to use all the black ink to try some new blue ink samples.

A lot of stuff today...a Montblanc 136, 234 1/2 PL, a Heritage 1912, a Pelikan 400NN Tortoise and a LAMY 2000 multi pen. Kind of just switching between pens at the start of new paragraphs.


What I'm looking for: Montblanc 132, 234 1/2, 235, 422 and 432. Any help would be most appreciated.

Hello everyone.

I am using a red and black ebonite woodgrain style. The barrell is imprinted "The Eric Pen" made in England, and on the botton says 6B. The lever is silver plated and it resembles the ideal style lever from Waterman's. It has two gold band rings. The cap is simple and has a stopper type clip that is imprinted "Ideal" on the center. This clip can be removed, and I guess comes from the Waterman's factory. The pen works perfectly, it has an ebonite feed also woodgrained that matches the section and the barrell. The nib is 18cts Warranted "Osmi-Iridium" Anglaterre. It is sooooo flexible that is scary, very soft gold, it goes from hairline to easily 1.9 mm line. It pours a lot of ink to the paper, very nice!

For what I paid for the pen, i think it has much more value for what it is. Very happy with the buy and excited to add it to my collection!

That is a sweet looking pen....

 

The only pen I've been using lately (crazy as it seems) is my kit made "yellow frog"... It doesn't fit my hand perfectly, however the pen it self matches my personality...

 

Time to make a new one!

Four in pocket today -- my usual Cascade (Hero Blue Black) and Sheaffer Triumph (Pelikan Brilliant Black), an in addition a Sheaffer Student loaded with Private Reserve DC Electric Blue, and a freshly-restored Wearever of uncertain heritage -- the body and nib are in the style of a Citation, but the cap is that of a Pennant -- topped up with Rohrer & Klingner Old Gold-Green (which color I have fallen madly for).

I just used my Parker Sonnet F, using last few drops of Paradise Pen black ink.

Now I'm ready to try the new blue samples.

I hope I did this right. First post outside of my intro thread. Lamy Vista Fine with its stock blue cartridge. Anyone have any tips on running this ink out?! I wanna try a new ink already! Haha!
