Good afternoon everyone.  This is just a quick post to let you know that I have officially launched my new website, The Pelikan's Perch.  It is a noncommercial, enthusiast site dedicated to the Pelikan brand.  Right now the focus is on the M100 - M250 lines including the M481.  I hope to expand that in the future.  You will find detailed statistics for each pen as well as photographs.  I will also be posting blog posts on various topics related to the brand as time goes on.  You will be able to find writing samples, reviews, news, how-to's, and many other useful links.  Please check it out and let me know what you think.  It has been a long time in conception but a labor of love for me over the last month that has finally come to fruition.  Check back often or subscribe to stay up to date.  I hope to post at a minimum of once weekly.  I have learned a lot about the Pelikan brand over the years and I want to share that knowledge with others.  Enjoy and feel free to let me know what you think of the site.



PELIKAN - Too many birds in the flock to count.  My pen chest has proven to be a most fertile breeding ground.

Best of luck.

Great new site! Nice design, easy auto-down menus.I really liked that the first thing I read was on the GO! ... one of the low-cost end with that terrific steel nib found on the other items in the low-end. A great daiyl pen!

I enjoy pen websites that have encyclopedic documentation on a brand's models. Very helpful for collecting.
