I'm using am M800 that I just got from a FPN member Powerbroker, super nice person, very smooth transaction.
Anyway, the pen is amazing.
I also have an old 600 but I prefer the 800 for its size.

I have been using my old 100N, with very flexible medium nib.

 

Now, may I (slightly) hijack this thread, momentarily?  The nib in my 400NN is marked KF and others here have mentioned DEF, etc -- I have no idea what the K and the D prefixes stand for -- anyone, please?

 

I see that the nib of my little Ibis is marked with a very small O; but it is certainly no obllique nib.

 

So much to learn -- and this website is so huge...

I believe the K is kugel. It translates as "ball" and refers to the shape of the iridium on the tip. I think all the new Pelikan nibs would have been called kugel back in the day.

K=kugel, a rounded ball, D=durchschreib, for writing carbon paper.

Nice pen Hari........I have a 381 & Celebry inked in the cup, both a marbled green lacquer, but the pen I am using is my black medium-small 150 M that I inked for the first time yesterday. 


www.nibs.com/blog/nibster-writes/nibs-germany      Info on Bock nibs

 

Due to Mauricio's improved definition of Super-flex, I try not use the term Easy Full Flex, but fail...sigh.

 

Semi-flex is an “almost” flex; not a ‘flex’ nib. It is great for regular writing with a touch of flair. It can give you some fancy; but it is not made for real fancy writing. For bit more of that get a maxi-semi-flex. Both spread tines 3X.  Those are not "Flex" nibs. 

 

Wider than Normal does not exist. Wider than Japanese does. Every company has it's very own standard + slop/tolerance. Developed from the users of it's pens and inks only; not the users or inks of other companies pens. The size you grind a nib to, is your standard only. Paper and ink matter to nib width. Thank god for 1/2 sizes or it would be boring.

I love the M150 nibs. I have one pen in black and several nib units. I bought the pen used, it is terrifically worn out, but is still in one piece! The 150 nibs seem to be scarce now and priced costlier than the M200 nibs. Has the M150 been discontinued?

Pelikan.com no longer lists the M150 on its site but there's still plenty new ones available on ebay. The pens will run almost as much as a plain black M200 but I find the nibs are usually cheaper than the 200s if not by much, $5-10 maybe..

Now this is a resurrected thread but a good one.  Mine is an M605 White Transparent with CI nib and Edelstein Aventurine.

How do you like the white transparent sargetalon?

Today I mostly used my green striped 140 Fine with Pelikan 4001 Blue Black.

Today, I used my green stripe M600, with broad italic by Pendleton Brown, with Monteverdi Horizon Blue, my black, with gold furniture M800 with medium italic by Pendleton Brown, with Monteverdi Olivine, my 400NN tortoise, with OM, with Robert Oster Lake of Fire, and my 400 tortoise, with Pelikan Smoky Quartz. They are all superb writers, and very different. I love each writing sensation.
