Hi Folks !

 

I can't plug the cap in its proper place after leaving my new Pelikan M1000 barrel  in a clean water for cleaning for a night. I checked the diameter of my M1000 with calliper comparing with my friends M1000 barrel diameter. My Pelikan's barrel diameter was 1mm bigger than my friends Pelikan barrel diameter.

I checked my new M1000 under the microscope and I see the water penetrated between the tortoise shell layers just on the threads side where cap is screwing. I put the M1000 body in a towel and left for two days under the indirect sun light. After two days slow evaporation now everything is ok. I can screw the cap in its normal place on the barrel.

 

Can anyone meet with same problem. Because one of my friends told me about the same issue in his M800. It seems to me like an issue of  Pelikan tortoise shell manufacturing.

User error perhaps? The barrel is not supposed to be soaked under water. Why would anyone want to do that?

@aliikizkaya, if the water level is kept below the yellow line, there will be no user error. If your celluloid binde has swelled when you kept the water level below yellow line, then it is a defect and a warranty issue.

 

But there is severe problem with following is done:

 

"I can't plug the cap in its proper place after leaving my new Pelikan M1000 barrel  in a clean water for cleaning for a night."

 

I hope this helps you.

@hari317 Thanks for your help. But there is nothing on the Pelikan papers which points that kind of problems.
