Very pretty but after the gold-marbled M200, I won't buy another white model. Mine has the hairline cracks around the inside of the cap, which appeared on the 2nd day of use. They don't penetrate through to the outside so I can live with it but it belies their assurances that this problem had been taken care of. I suspect this also happens on black caps but we just can't see it on those.

It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

This is the first time I've heard of the cracking problem on an M200 in white. There are plenty of people who have provided information with pictures of it happening with M600 models. It's a shame - I'd hoped it was only a batch issue and restricted to one model. I own a white tortoise M400 and so far it is fine. I strongly suspect it is the white resin that is the problem as I can't recall ever hearing about caps and piston nobs cracking on others.

I use J. Herbin Vert de Gris in my transparent white and haven't had any issues with staining. But I use a syringe to fill rather than dipping the nib, just as a precaution. It washed out fine.


On the other hand, Tsuki-yo did stain my White tortoise 600, but the inside of the barrel, not the section, with a small faint stain. I've scrubbed it and soaked it to no avail.
