If the M400 pens had screw in pistons, available in brown and white tortoise (also that darker green that was available with the M450), I think Pelikan would have succeeded in creating the greatest fountain pens ever. I don't want metal parts in them. It would make the plastic parts wear down faster. Just one little change is all I ask.
On another note, I actually like the current logo. In fact I prefer over all past logos, except the very first. I think the single chick looks much better than the double commas of yesteryear. It looked like the opened beak of a drowning pelican. It is rather modern looking, but at least now it doesn't look like a murder scene.
I hadn't thought about it, but I suppose it would be better to get rid of the ring at the section. It is the place that gets the most wear and doesn't add much aesthetically to the design.
