Congratulations with a great pen!

And do keep the ink bottle, these models are very practical.

Fill it with your favorite ink and enjoy the ease with which these bottles enable you to fill your pen  :)

 

Best regards,

Marc

The 1st one , I can't see the nib, so nothing to tell more about the pen.

The 2nd is a clear m800 so with that price , you have a very good luck. Sorry I'm new and I'm trying to post more information as I can . I actually don't want to spam. 

Can you give me a great shot of the 1st pen on the nib?


No pen is best pen.

Hi,

 

once again thanks for all the feedback you guys provided me.

 

During today I've seen myself making up excuses to use the new pen :) and the more I write with it more I want to write.

 

I always thought the M800 would be just to big for my hands, but I was wrong! It's a perfect size. And the nib... well this nib just ruined most of the pens I own. It's a joy to write with.

 

Bellow are some pics I just took.

and finally my small Pelikan family all together

One thing I noticed is that this Fine nib writes quite a bit finer than my M405 Fine nib, when no pressure is being applied.

That nib is a bit flexible and responsive to pressure. Great nib, well sought after.

 

The 800s have ruined my pen budget. I thought I was well with my M205s and M605s for many years. My M605 is a great pen with such a smooth nib, but now I am thinking of selling it. First it was the M805, I started a diary just to find an excuse to write more with it, a thing I had never done in my life before. Then I got a couple of others too. They are addictive.

Same here, I'm also writing every night in a diary which I started only after getting some fountain pens! :)

What he said. This is a superb catch.

Never pass up an attractive M800 because of a nib. They are easily exchanged.

This the first batch of M800s. Before German reunification so W.Germany, 14k nib. All this is normal.
 
A very sought after pen and at the condition you describe, well the price is just very low. I have followed one on the bay, seller wanted more than 350 Euros for it... Congratulations, enjoy it!
