Hi,

I've received my M800 Tortoise today!

It is my 10th pen right now, and one of my grail pens.

I'm very happy with it, and glad that I've decided to spend more than what I usually do!

Thank you Dominic! I'm really grateful for it! ;)
It will only leave the house for special occasions!

I use that roll up pen case for my every day carry in college. It became very soft over the years. I love it!

Very, very, very nice !

It highlights the fact that I don't have enough Pelikans.

Thanks for posting the pictures, I didn't realise they where that close in size, especially when you take into account the vast difference there is in price, between them.

A wonderful pen and I'm so glad I coughed up for mine. It now gorges continually on Diamine Salamander and the two seem made for each other. Congratulations.

One of these has been on my mind for a while too. Your photos show off the pen beautifully.

I just won, two in tortoise, a 400N and a 500 . :happyberet:

 

It looks like my just arrived Pelikan fountain pen holder needs an 800....to fit the larger  of the two sized holders perfectly. In tortoise of course....an '800.

One should not set one's new grail pen as too common or what use is it to have a grail pen. They did make a 800 tortoise in '87-9? Yes? B)

 

OK, then a '30's tortoise...for a grail pen. I'm flexible....(weak willed.)

 

:angry: I don't have that swirl in my '90's M400. :gaah:

 

In I have a 400NN, I did not need one in Tortoise....one needs but one of a model....right?

One Snorkel, one P-51 and one 400NN....one should not be greedy. That NN has a real nice 'flexi' OF....so I need that nib...and green stripes are pretty too.

Well----a what does one call that light blue/green one...Sea Foam? Sea something.

Another grail pen....already. :rolleyes:

 

Dam pirates stole my ship the Flying Dutchman right from the dock; leaving Pelikans perched on the pilings..... Never trust a ship captain who carries a Pelikan on a chain around his neck.


Edited by Bo Bo Olson, 19 November 2013 - 20:34.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

That's a very attractive pen.  An 800 would be too large for me (even a 600 is a bit on the heavy side), but I'd like to get a 400 at some point in the future.  Just not in the foreseeable budget at the moment.... :wallbash:
