I only own the M800.... Dream of a pen, Levely looking smooth Nib.
The green Stresemann Stripes are claasic and distinctive.
The MB is obviously an excellent pen. But it is nothing original. I believe Sailor and some other brands have a classic looking cigar shape pen... At better prices.... So I must say that a classical cigar shaped large Fountain Pen is on my to buy list.
But it will be a Sailor then. Wide nib choice large black cigar shaped FP.... So sort of the same with an excellent reputation.....
That white star, by far is not enough to justify the high price... But well that's personal
Since I absolutely love my M800 I can imagine that some Pelikans will follow too
Das leben ist wie ein Perpetuum Mobile mit ein Mangel..... Immer im Bewegung jedoch nicht unendlich. (life is like a troubled Perpetuum Mobile ever moving but not for ever)
Tricked throughout the centuries...
For centuries people had been tricked by kings & "religion-alism"
In the 20th century people got tricked by communism
Today people get tricked by (neo)capitalism
