First of all, thanks a million. Now I know what I can mail Hanover tomorrow. I wouldn't call that an obsession at all. I do that all the time. Throwing things out  -- itself -- might be named a hobby. Inks themselves: yes, bottles: sometimes; boxes: never!

My opened bottle of Blue-Black matches up with the one quoted. I couldn't quite get to the other ones - Twisted Spire in the way.

Well, if something is in the way and needs to be used up first, then all you need to do is fill a bigger pen with it. Perhaps like this:

I'm not sure, but I think that's an M1000000.

Whoa!  That gentleman is all of 15" tall!


True bliss: knowing that the guy next to you is suffering more than you are.

Actually, he is 15 feet tall. That is Mr. Pelikan Himself.

P. in H. said that the 62.5-ml bottles are offered all over the world, just not in Germany (wrack!).

Also, as of the upcoming October, they will be available in Germany and also in a new design. Still, I {A} don't know if that means the old-type 62.5-ers plus a new bottle with a different shape, and {B} don't know if that also applies to the rest of the world.

 

We'll see.
