The day before yesterday news broke about a new M800 Release, the Renaissance Brown. The Pelikanperch has a interesting article about the new release and is quoting some sources. Just wanted to add that The Couronne du Comte has an interesting offer until April 12 using KINGPELIKAN. For us outside of Europe (no VAT) it boils down to EURO 335.- (or around 360.- USD) shipping included.

That's about as good a deal as you'll find anywhere for this pen and from a very reputable vendor. Thanks for sharing! The only caveat to US buyers is the lack of domestic warranty support. If warranty repairs would be required, you'd have to go through the overseas vendor. I don't see this as a big downside since the pens are generally reliable and the cost savings significant.

I bought one from LCdC at the day it was announced too. Hard to pass on their price.

But I didn't use the above code, just the regular code that always gives us 10%.

 

I was planning to buy this year's releases from UK to get a BB nib. Sadly, no BB nibs being offered for this one (and the price increase in UK for this one was tough to swallow).

Thanks so much. Just ordered one. The price with discount comes out to: 334.71 euros = 354.71usd
Even with currency conversion fees, A good deal I think.

Too bad it's an 800, it's a very pretty pen....I find the Large 800 to be a clunky pen...even the W.Germany one.

I 'need' something like that in a 600....I've got vintage '50's nibs that would fit it.


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.

I really like the look of the pen, but really can't justify an M800. Now if they find they have enough extra material and produce an M400, then I'll find it very difficult to not acquire one. I'm sure those that have ordered the M800 will enjoy it.

I believe Pelikan has discontinued the BB option in general, at least for the M800.

I also wish this had been offered as an M600, but couldn't resist LCdC's offer. I'll probably have the nib reground to an oblique, or use one of my older M800 nibs on it.

You are correct, and for all models  :gaah: . Worse, they discontinued the obliques... and this, I am sure, is causing them to lose some business to "that other German manufacturer" :( . 

 

But several vendors in UK had a BB for a while last year, and I was hoping they would continue to offer them (I think I heard somewhere that they had a special batch made for them). But, apparently, once that batch was gone no more were ordered.

For what it's worth, Appelboom has a similar price after using the code FRIEND, at least for US folks.

It's a pleasant-looking pen, sure enough, bu I reckon my M620 San Francisco will be enough in that sort-of colour.

I must stop reading these tempting posts.... they cost me too much $$.

Appelboom recognises an Australian IP address and quotes a price including GST... sob!

Niche Pens & Fonteplumo are lower, but unusually, not the best.

I could not better The Couronne du Comte discount code price, so thank you Jungkind. I think.

This looks fantastic, but I might hold on to see what else Pelikan has in mind for later this year.

Holding out for that M805 Vantablack with the 24K Unobtainium OBB nib, eh?   :puddle:

Do the special editions go pretty fast? I'm thinking about holding out for something else too, but I'd hate to miss out on this and regret it. This is going to be made in higher numbers than the "limited" editions, right?

I just ordered one with matching ballpoint.  LCdC came in about $100 less than Applebloom , using both companies discounts.   Applebloom's checkout added some charge, the code for which I did not recognize, of about $125.

 

The colors and pattern reminds me of some of the older Conway Stewart pens
