Hello Everyone!
Today I'll be reviewing a prewar step section Pelikan 100N.

Appearance & Design (9) This pen is very similar in design to the earlier 100. This particular pen shares the 100's step section barrel which was later removed. The 100N has pasted the test of time flawlessly and is still one of the most visually pleasing vintage pens.

Construction & Quality (10) This is probably one of the most robust vintage pens out there. The pen has a very solid feel which makes me more likely to use it. I find with some vintage pens I'm worried about breaking them because they're brittle, not the case with this pen.

Weight & Dimensions (9) The pen is small and doesn't weigh very much. The pen is similar in size to an Esterbrook Dollar pen. Dimensions make this a great shirt pocket pen.

Nib & Performance (10) Hugh points when it comes to the nib. The pen has a 14k gold broad stub nib with flex, what an amazing combo! it is extremely smooth, probably one of my smoothest with the perfect amount of feedback.

Filling System & Maintenance (10) Being a piston filler some maintenance is required to keep the piston moving smoothly and freely over many decades of use. This pen holds slightly more ink than the 100 and lots more than a C/C pen.

Cost & Value (10) I purchased this pen for around $220 from the classifieds section of this forum. The seller had purchase the pen for $600 from PENquin are barely used it so I'm happy.

Conclusion (9.7/10) probably my favorite Pelikan of all time. This pen is iconic among many pen collects and wont be leaving my collection anytime soon.

Thanks for taking the time to read my review. The photos were all taken in artificial light which gave them a yellowish tinge. My DSLR fell off the tripod and the flash broke just as i started taking pictures :doh:.

Just to say thanks and share this beautiful little pen that has been pass on to me.

The feel on these vintage Pelikan body is kinda "warm" and the smooth finish is so appealing.

The nib is equally so...

 

Luv this pen!

I love all of my Pelikans, but my 100N is special, very special. I love to look at it, feel it and write with it.
