I just won, two in tortoise, a 400N and a 500 .
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?
OK, then a '30's tortoise...for a grail pen. I'm flexible....(weak willed.)
I don't have that swirl in my '90's M400.
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.
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.

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.
