Very interested! It'd be cool to see this next to a MB149, just to compare the size.

I'll find my own Balance...some day....

georges,

Another beautiful pen! Recently I am attracted by the beauty of green stripes. Do the stripes of your pen resemble that of Pelikan M450?

Than you :notworthy1: My very first vac fill was a brown vac fill that you repaired and that I bought at Jean Elie too almost two years ago, it works flawlessly. You are the sheaffer vac fill specialist in Europe, thanks again for your work as well as helping sheaffer enthusiasts :thumbup: :happyberet:

hi rokurinpapa

not sure that the stripes ressemble the stripes of the m450 because the stripes of the m450 are turquoise green and these ones are of vivid green color.

Thanks for the review. Not a pen that I knew much about or that I had ever thought of getting but I now know it to be worthy of consideration.
