I am aware that Pelikan drastically revamped its presentation of its fine writing instruments, including the launch of Edelstein ink, a new site for fine writing instruments (at http://www.pelikan.com/exclusive), a new metal logo, and new packaging (including the pouch), during the second half or fourth quarter of 2010. I do not know much more about this change.

I have not purchased a new Pelikan for quite some time, but the older nibs were always a little broader than other manufacturers (e.g., A Pelikan Fine would be close to a Montblanc Medium). This agrees with your review of the new M600.

My M600 has been in use for many years and I find they just keep filling and functioning without problems.

That's a beautiful Peli and a big step up from the 200. Love the new gold embossed logo. Great review.

Among other Pelikans I have a nice 605.

For my twist out nibbed piston pens, I use either and or a rubber ear syringe (also the nib) or a needle syringe.

It takes but seconds to take off the nib, a half a minute to clean the pen, and a not more than two water fills to make sure the nib is also clean.

The normal shake into the paper towel like an old fashioned thermometer and I'm good to go.

Two-three minutes total with out stressing the piston by running it up and down a lot of times to get everything out.

Everyone says poor Mozart dead at only 36. None say poor Mendelson, dead at only 38. His family only allowed him to start at 20, but before, musicians use to come to the Mendelson garden to steal the music of Mendelson and his sister. A good artist also, can still buy prints of his famous Scottish drawings in Scotland.
