Please, show us a picture of the pen you use today.

 

For me, its a tortoise Pelikan M400 EF old style.

And this nib has a lovely flexibility, it is very smooth!

I've been using my Blue Planet LE - it has a 3B nib and gives lots of shading, currently filled with R&K Salix.

Nice tortise there mate. That version has the nicest colour IMHO.

I have others inked as well, but here's the November pocket pen.

My first Pelikan and I'm using it today.  The M151 Verde/Nera which I read in this forum that it's really the M150.  It came with the ink shown and I'm enjoying writing with it.
