Thanks for this comparison review. I have both these pens in my collection. It is interesting to note the excellent nib engraving job that MB has done on that little 145 nib of theirs. Side by side with the M600's nib, the engraving quality difference is glaring.

Thanks for the nice review. They both seem like good writers and I'm sure will last your lifetime. The MB must be small since nibs on the M600 and M400 are interchangeable. No big deal, the nib on my MB 100 years pen is small and writes wonderfully.

Hari, I don't see a difference in quality in how the nibs are stamped or finished. Never have, unless we are talking MB Writer's Edition nibs. The MB is smaller, and has finer lines, but one does not seem to be higher quality than the other.

I had never noticed them (the diffrence) either with naked eyes, but the picture in the review:

The engraving/stamping looks deeper, more crisp and well defined on the MB. but YMMV.

THis is a wonderful review, I really enjoyed it.

And, to my eye, I prefer the line of the Pelikan. I don't know the name of the person who customized the nib for you... where did you buy it?

Its true, there is a big difference in what seems to be the 'quality' of the imprint on both nibs. In my opinion, the MB has much crisper and refined details.

Thats why I didn't want to compare the nibs - albiet both write beautifully. My MB is a stock F nib where as the Pelikan is a stub italic .6mm. The pen came from nibs.com (no affiliation) and John Mottishaw customized the nib out of the box.

I love this review of two very good pens.

The custom nib is nicer to me but that's very subjective, naturally.
