It will be interesting to see how the sales of the 120 3rd version go. The pen has precipitated three topic discussions here in FPN that have been generally negative on the price-point and the idea, given its original utilitarian school pen purpose in version 1, with slight refinements for a broader adult market in version 2.

Agree with Dickkooty2.  The 120 I bought new in 1979 was a workhorse pen that I banged around but it always worked and wrote fine.  Dont get me wrong, I adore Pelikan pens, and I am sure this 120 version will be a great pen, but a price point below $100 is much more reasonable.  I dont want to think about what may be next...... a Limited Edition Pelikano?

But it has fancy engraving* on the nib! Surely that's worth paying extra for.

 

 

 

*seems odd that they would admit that the inspiration came from an 1889 price list of all things.
