Today my feed showed me the most beautiful news! I love this colour...and I'm super excited. :D
Someone here photoshopped exactly this pen as in wishful thinking. Yes, some dreams come true, here is one of them. What do you think? "Yay Aquamarine" or "nay, not my colour"?

It's so pretty!  I already have 3 M200/205s... B, B stub, and BB.  I suppose I could use a Medium... *strokes imaginary goatee*

It looks good if it looks in real as it is in the photo.

I like it... a lot! 

But I still have to find money for the M805 Vibrant Blue, and there is the rumor about a M400 Brown Tortoise... So, I guess I'll not be able to get the Aquamarine any time soon.

It reminds me of seeing the amethyst version that looked rather nice in the glamourised shots, but in real life it looks plain. I don't see this one being any different really.

I like it and will be picking one up. I don't mind the way the amethyst came out and I anticipate this will be similar in appearance. Shouldn't have too long to wait.

I really thought this one would turn out to be wishful thinking, and am so glad to be proved wrong.

Having old 400's kept saying I didn't need 200's....liked the nib got a 215, then the Amethyst and if you have light from a window looks ok. Then I lucked into a W. Germany 200.

Was too late for the Amethyst ink except for cartridges.

Will have to look hard at the new aquamarine ink.


German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

Well, I was close-ish, but it seems I was thinking of something a little darker than Pelikan was apparently envisaging. Much like the ink, in fact. Think I'll wait to see it in more prosaic pictures before I decide if I need to justify "just one more" M2xx (again!).

Amethyst still available from a few places. Here for example. http://www.overjoyed...l-amethyst.html
But need to spend €80 for free worldwide shipping.

I've also seen it available from a couple of stockists in the US, but shipping for one bottle from there is exorbitant.

I think you've nailed it with your pre-visualisation, Grainweevil, and if the two were on the pen shop counter I would have yours in an instant.

 

But then I expect both images are equally digital (did you know that 75% of the IKEA catalogue is computer generated? I was frankly shocked) I like the black element to your pic. Pelikan are really good at colours though, so let's hope.

I would definitely like to have a factory stub on Pelikan M215, but I haven't seen them anywhere.

The closest you will come to a factory stub is their italic medium nib for the M2xx.  I believe it came in plated and unplated forms but I have not seen these sold separate of a new pen and not frequently offered for sale.  They came as an option on the M200 Black, M200 Cognac, M201 Mars Red, and M205 Neptune Blue if memory serves me correctly.  Your best bet is to pick one of the broad SS nibs up and have a custom grind done.  Likely to be more satisfying than the off the shelf italic medium that way.

I actually really like the italic that you can get for the M200.  I have my beloved Pelikan enabler (Larry Dromgoole) switch them out for me.
