The same as before... (from the What do you have inked? thread):

 

 

EDC flock... dropped the black Pelikan 140 (M) in favor of a more broad nibbed pen (100N). I think these strike a great balance for everyday/common writing needs (no real room for BB/BBB nibs even though they are great fun).

Also, been loving the new ink mix I made out of Pelikan 4001 series inks which is:
- 2 parts Blue Black,
- 1 part Turquoise and
- 1 part of distilled water.

Pelikan 100N Green ( B) inked with Pelikan 4001 BB/Turquoise/H2O mix,
Pelikan 100N Black (EEF) inked with the same and
Pelikan 400NN Schildpatt/Tortoise (OF) inked with MB BB/Caran d'Ache Hypnotic Turquoise/H2O mix.

How do you like the white transparent sargetalon?

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


More than I thought I would. The CI grind likely helps.

The 150 is still made and sold, I got a catalog with my new marbled brown.....so just put my 150 filled with the 4001 Brilliant Green up in the pen cup.

 

 

Now I'm using L'Actison Brun Ours sample that came with the new  marbled brown 200....it is a grayed brown...towards a R&K Sepia


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.

Today I am using my M805 Stresemann with Pelikan Black ink and my M400 red-striated with Pelikan Red.

Both have B-nibs and complement each other nicely when I need to write and highlight something.

Got quite the rise out of the clerks at the Precision Time store in the mall today when I went to get a new battery for my wife's watch (and a new crystal) when I pulled out my old style blue marbled M200 to sign the slip for the work... oh, and it was loaded with Levenger Pomegranate.

A 400 that has the wettest nib I have ever seen on a Pelikan. And it is almost full flex. Huge tine spread with almost no pressure. I truly love this nib.

I have filled for the first time a plain old 100N from the early 1950s. It has one of the flexier nibs among my pens, and writes with a faint skritch like or more so than an Aurora 88 of the same period. It appears to be an F nib, very practical and neat to use. This is my only not-modern Pelikan.


If you see anything unusual, just enjoy it while you can.

Tonight, the two M300s I have inked, Kana-cho in the green-striped and Petrol in the black.

 

Of course, once I got to work, I was reminded why I normally bring 1 screw-on and 1 snap cap and had to pull the Pilot Varsity out of my bag.

A jet black M405 filled with Edelstein Onyx.  Boring, huh?  Believe it or not, but this pen has gotten more comments/compliments than many of its flashier flock-mates.

A Merz and Krell 120, medium nib, Pelikan brilliant black. This pen, a recent purchase, seems to get better and better from one filling to the next. I'm on the third, which would be called "early days" by English members, and I wonder how much better the pen is going to become over a few weeks.

Debating whether to fill the new Stormtrooper that arrived yesterday with Take-sumi. I was really disappointed with it when I tried it in the M405 EF - way too wet - but I'm thinking the M100 EF should run somewhat drier.
