As you all know i have purchased an M200 and an M600 and the M200 arrived today.

As soon as i opened the packaging i could tell that this is a serious pen from a serious company.

As you can see the pen was packaged in an old fashion type envelope design with the Pelikan logo as a sort of stamp. This made the whole product feel classic and elegant before even looking at the pen.

What beautiful packaging i can honestly say that this is the best packaging i have ever seen for any product it makes the whole experience more of a luxury.

Now onto the pen. I was quite surprised by the size of this pen i thought it would have been abit bigger but i had no problem holding it posted it was a nice snug fit in my hands. I also have the M600 which is bigger so it will not be a problem for me.

What a beautiful pen this is. It is so elegant and simple looking it isnt one of those pens that screams 'LOOK AT MEE!!' it is sophisticated and classy and its almost like the pen does not try to hard to look nice instead it makes its mark by its performance. Here are some more photos of the pen.

This is a gorgeous pen Posted Image i can only imagine what the M600 will look like.

One of my favourite features of the pen is its removable nib. In the world of fountain pens we know that there are some expensive pen brands where you cannot take the nib or the feed out of their pens and you cannot clean the pens thoroughly as you would like to. If there is any problem with the pen or nib you have to send it off and wait some time until you see your pen again. With Pelikans (As you all know) it is not like that. you can remove the nib and easily replace it with another nib of your choice without sending it off. Its that simple.

And speaking about nibs these are where Pelikan have grown their popularity from and its the nibs which have given Pelikan their name. Although this is a steel nib and not a 14kt gold nib it is one hell of a smooth nib! You really cant tell the difference in performance and smoothness in my opinion. The nib is wonderfully smooth and has a slight spring to it which is lovely. The nib is not too dry and not too wet in my opinion and my mind has been blown by this pen.

I can honestly say that if i had to choose ONE pen to write with and only one to own i would choose the M200. This is making me even more excited to get my hands on the M600 and ink it up! If this nib blows my mind i can only imagine how the M600 will write.

Below is my writing sample and this is by far my most favourite pen. Im totally hooked on Pelikan now! Posted Image

Posted Image


This pen gets a 10/10 for me it is an all round great pen and i am impressed with its performance and quality. This may be one of Pelikans cheapest pens but it sure outweighs its expensive rivals, just goes to show you dont need an expensive gold nib pen to get the job done. Buy a pelikan M200 instead Posted Image

Hope you guys like my first proper review Posted Image

Great review! Thanks! My first Pelikan was one like this and it was a great pen. I didn't keep it long b/c of the size - but what a great little pen.

What a great review. I'd like to know what made you choose the M200 over the M205 or M215. I'm struggling with
this decision.

Thank you. I think the green marble design made me choose this pen over the others.

Oh, for heaven's sake...I had just talked myself OUT of picking up a M205 on the Goulet Pens closeout, and then you have to go and pique my interest again. :)

Nice review. I like the enthusiasm.
