It is roughly equivalent to a Japanese fine.
EDIT: I am, of course, making this up, since the planck length is what Feynman would call "very small". Just thought I'd clarify.

I just purchased a small lot of pens on eBay, mostly for a Vacumatic, but in the lot was a Pelikan 120. Once given a rinse and a few fills of water it wrote like a champ. The cool thing about the Pelikan 120 is that it came with a Planck 14k-585 nib, with a lovely italic nib. It writes beautifully with a little flex too.
I wonder if this is the same pen as the OP, or if it is identical?
p.s. If it is a different pen, then perhaps Planck was a nib maker sourced by Pelikan or Pelikan owners.
Writing with pen and ink, is an endeavour both stimulating and cathartic.

I would stop in the shop on my way home from the medical school 1 block away from his shop to watch him and learn about pens. I was so impressed that someone could do something so well in his tiny little shop that he would eventually be world renowned simply by word of mouth. That lesson always compelled me to strive for similar perfection in the surgery that I perform in my own career.
I still have 2 of his nibs. The Pels are long broken, but one is fit in an old Sheaffer and the other in a Pelikan 600. In addition to being great nibs, they evoke fond, old memories. Enjoy the pen.
