Older thread... since posting I got myself an Ahab (clear) about a week ago.
Flows well, liking the flex a lot... and like the larger size. My friend got a Konrad about 2 weeks ago, meeting up this weekend, with the pens, will give his a try and vice versa and see what we like.
Still like the looks and the converter on the Konrad, and would like either the Marbled Marianas or the Coral Sea... 50/50 which I like more... just wish we could see the pen before ordering because seen some with great marbling, and seen some online that had almost none at all. Downside to unique pens I guess... solid coloured pens at least are more consistent visually.
Cons though... and I'll probably post a pic because came up in another thread... my clear pen has weird milky streaks through it, and around the rubber for the plunger, on the plunger itself and the pen, it's turning yellow. Visually, the pen looks kinda cheap/crappy as a result.
Writes very well though. Would love to try a broader flex nib some day... keep looking on eBay at the Pelikan 400 and 140, but, the bids start small and jump up very very fast. Strange too since, it makes NO sense to bid on stuff until the last hour.
