I think the goulet pen co has the m400 stresemann in the sale section, but only F and M nibs left
Well, I was able to get an M405 Stresemann last spring (along with a striated Blue M405 with an EF nib), due to special extenuating circumstances that will never happen again. And I didn't even have to rob a bank, as it turned out.... (Plus, I saved some money by ordering them from Rolf Thiel at Missing Pens ).
Sadly, the extenuating circumstances are over with. And that shopping budget? A third of it went towards those two M405s.... Worth every dime, though.
I'd have to see (and hold) that new M600 to see if it was too heavy, the way the pink M600 had been for me. Except of course I probably shouldn't pick it up because then I'd want a pen I can't afford....

ETA: Just looked at the GPC website. Yeah, that's slightly under what I paid -- but I did really want a B nib in the Stresemann. And that was also a case of "strike while the iron is hot" -- I couldn't guarantee that anyone would still have them for sale this late in the game, and was afraid to wait.
